Plastic Surgery is located in Vail, Colorado. The Institute is proud to bring patients the latest innovations in plastics, with a special focus on cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and breasts, body contouring and more. We are committed to ensuring the safety, comfort and satisfaction of all our plastic surgery patients. As experts, we strive to offer a personalized experience from each patient's first consultation, through surgery and beyond. We feel that plastic surgery is not just about looking better, but also improving the body's form and function and enhancing overall quality of life.
The Institute is affiliated with Shaw Cancer Center to promote healing inside and outside of the body. Each patient's unique goals, lifestyle and medical history are considered when determining the appropriate cosmetic or reconstructive surgery.  
Dr. Resnick's practice has attracted patients not only from the Vail Valley, but also from across the country and around the world. Simplifying the process of destination surgery, Dr. Resnick and his team help each patient enjoy the ambience of Vail and Beaver Creek in any season while planning and recovering from cosmetic or reconstructive surgery. Conveniently located in the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, our in-patient procedures are performed at Vail Valley Medical Center. Patients should plan to relax and recover for seven to 10 days after a procedure.
Plastic surgery encompasses both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body to improve the patient's appearance and self-esteem. It is not covered by health insurance. Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally performed to improve function, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery may be covered by health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.
