Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Department


The Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery is a specialized department that aims for “functional restoration” and “improvement in the quality of social life” of the patient, by treating abnormalities and deformities of various parts of the body.

We balance reconstructive surgery, treatments for tissue anomaly, deformation or deficits through microsurgery, and Aesthetic surgery which treats the figures of areas that highly concerns patients. It is a department that heightens QOL (quality of life). Most of our services are covered by the national health insurance but some treatments may not be covered depending on the content.

Our department thoroughly consults with each patient to select the best treatment method together after suggesting a few possible options. The plastic and reconstructive surgery department will work in cooperation with other departments so all our patients can receive treatments comfortably.

We may experience various changes in appearance, whether it is for hereditary reasons or as a result of various events in our lives (accidents, age, malignant tumors, etc.)

This may not impact one’s life directly but it is not only an issue of “appearance.” It may develop to influence not only our body functions but our emotions as well. The plastic and reconstructive surgery is a specialized department that aims for “functional restoration” and “improvement in the quality of social life” of the patient, and is not a department that deals with specific organs such as the brain, lung or heart. We treat the abnormalities and changes in the form of body parts. The plastic and reconstructive surgery department is largely divided into two categories.

“Reconstructive Surgery”

Treatment of disorders such as tissue anomaly, deformation or deficits.

“Aesthetic Surgery”

Treatment of figures that highly concerns the patient.

There are no clear boundaries between these two categories. This is because body parts such as the face have social significance. We believe that our department can assist you to live each day more comfortably, help you to build self-confidence and to have a positive outlook on life.
