Developmental defects involve abnormalities resulting from accident or injury, disease, infection and sometimes the aging process. These may include dog bites, burn wounds, skin cancer, benign growths and similar conditions.
Reconstructive procedures are often performed in a hospital or outpatient surgical center.
