Injuries on the hands, wrists, or fingers can make it impossible to perform routine daily tasks and negatively impact your quality of life. Reconstructive hand surgery is a type of plastic surgery that aims to rebalance and restore function to the hands. Surgeons also aim to achieve an aesthetically satisfactory appearance in order to enhance the patient’s self-esteem.

The duration of recovery after hand reconstruction can vary dramatically from one patient to another. Dr. Balinger will explain your personalized recovery journey during one of your pre-op consultation visits.
