Clinical Department & Center

Plastic Surgery


The Department of Plastic Surgery is a clinical surgery department with the aim of restoring the true appearance and function, using various techniques, of parts of the body that have been deformed or lost for various reasons, and of beautifying people’s appearance for cosmetic reasons.


Medical care system

Consultations for general outpatients are provided on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, excluding Mondays and Fridays, when surgery is performed all day. Specialty outpatient clinics for cleft lip, maxillofacial surgery, vascular malformations, malignant tumors and microtia are held once or twice a month. Patients wishing to attend a specialty outpatient clinic have to make an appointment at the general outpatient clinic.
(For more information, please see the Plastic Surgery website.)

At our department, we strive to provide advanced medical care in a broad range of areas, including injuries, cleft palate, craniomaxillofacial malformations, skin/soft tissue tumors, angioma, facial palsy and diverse reconstructive surgical procedures, and contribute to the improvement of patients’ quality of life (QOL).
