Work, Jr., is a full-service plastic surgery facility offering comprehensive, compassionate reconstructive surgery for patients in and around Atlanta, Buckhead, Vinings and Sandy Springs.

Types of Reconstructive Surgery
Am I the Right Candidate for Reconstructive Surgery?

Will Insurance Cover My Reconstructive Surgery?
Fortunately, most reconstructive surgery is classified as medically indicated and will be covered by many health insurance policies. However, every plan is different and every procedure and treatment package varies between patients. Some insurers will cover all of your reconstructive procedure costs, while others may cover only a portion, leaving the patient responsible for the rest. In cases where any costs are not covered by health insurance coverage, the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery proudly offers CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending as financing options for all of our patients. Our office also accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
