The VDVPS Foundation is exclusively devoted to offering plastic and reconstructive surgery to victims of domestic violence.
The goal of the VDVPS Foundation is to alleviate the memories these victims have of their trauma by helping, through plastic and reconstructive surgery, to efface the physical stigmata left behind by the violence. We hope that our efforts will help victims of domestic violence begin to rebuild their lives and their selfesteem.
The VDVPS is the first surgical organization in the world to offer a comprehensive reconstructive approach to repair injuries to the face and body resulting from physically abusive relationships.
Our team includes Plastic and Reconstructive surgeons, Hand surgeons, ENT surgeons, OBGYN surgeons, Oral and Maxillofacial
Surgeons and Dentists. During the initial consultation, the patients are asked to provide some details of the injuries sustained, screened to make sure that they have terminated the abusive relationship, and evaluated to determine that their injuries are secondary to domestic violence.
Surgery is performed after establishing that the patient is psychologically healing from the trauma of the abuse and that she (he) has been able to break away from the violent relationship.
The VDVPS Foundation takes a strong position against domestic violence and, by helping to erase their physical injuries, hopes to make a small contribution toward the long and difficult healing process these unfortunate victims must undergo.
We offer the following services for related trauma and/or injuries caused by domestic violence:
Plastic and/or Reconstructive Surgery of the Face and Body
