Children’s Plastic Surgery
Life changing restorative surgeries
Pediatric plastic surgery can have both functional and cosmetic benefits—and often the two go hand-in-hand. Reconstructive surgery is an option for children born with abnormalities and those injured in accidents.
Some plastic surgeries are necessary to ensure your child’s long-term physical health, improving their ability to eat, speak, see, or handle objects. Other procedures are designed to normalize their appearance and safeguard their self-esteem during the critical childhood and teen years. In either case, plastic surgery can have a significant impact on your child’s development.
Our pediatric plastic surgeons have exceptional technical skills as well as a comprehensive understanding of childhood wellbeing and development. They understand how a child’s rapidly changing body impacts long-term surgical outcomes and, vice versa, how surgery can affect a child’s growth.
Our pediatric plastic surgeons have experience with a wide array of injuries as well as congenital (present from birth) and developmental abnormalities. Conditions that may be treated with reconstructive surgery include:
- Cleft lip and cleft palate
- Breast and chest wall disorders
- Hand disorders
- Facial paralysis
- Hemangiomas / birthmarks
- Protruding ears
- Traumatic injuries
- Skin conditions
We include family in every part of the process and will help you evaluate the best treatment options for your child.
