Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
At Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital, we provide a full range of cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures to restore and maintain your appearance.
Patients who wish to look as young as they feel may choose skin rejuvenation treatments at our medical spa or cosmetic plastic surgery such as a facelift, brow lift, abdominoplasties or liposuction. Patients who experience a traumatic injury, burns or problems following a previous surgery may need reconstructive surgery to regain functionality.
Patients who overcome cancer may benefit from surgical procedures such as breast or skin reconstruction. The most common procedures performed are breast reconstruction options for women who are either undergoing a partial or full mastectomy (immediate breast reconstruction) or those who have had prior breast removal procedures (secondary breast reconstruction). We offer tissue expanders and implants using natural reconstruction methods.
Our highly trained surgeons are experts in their field and use the latest techniques, including laser treatments, advanced microvascular surgery and trauma reconstruction.

At IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital, we help breast cancer patients regain their appearance before cancer surgery and we work with wound care patients to treat and close their wounds.
If your breast cancer requires a mastectomy, you may choose breast reconstructive surgery to reshape your breasts. This surgery can be performed immediately following surgery or after recovery.
We use contemporary methods for breast reconstruction, including:
- Natural tissue. This method uses tissue from the abdomen, back or gluteus to create a new breast. Fat Injections from liposuction are often used to finalize the breast shape and form.
- Implants. Your surgeon constructs a new breast or breasts using implants.
Your physician will discuss the best reconstruction option for you, depending on your health and the type of breast cancer surgery you will need.
If you are coping with a wound, we collaborate with IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital Wound Care to provide needed surgical procedures, including debridement, reconstruction of pressure sores, skin grafts and wound closure.
We offer a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures to reshape and restore the face and body after natural aging, weight loss and pregnancies take their toll. The most common procedure we perform is the tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, after massive weight loss or for self-improvement.
Other common procedures people choose include:
- Arm lift
- Breast augmentation
- Breast reduction/lift
We also provide general plastic surgery to smooth out the appearance of scars from an injury or previous surgery.
