Overview

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery - Overview

Our center provides pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgery with a specialized, compassionate, family-centered approach.

Our goal is to correct congenital deformities to restore function and improve appearance for patients affected by a birth defect, injury, illness or tumor.

Reconstructive procedures include:

  • Cleft lip and palate and craniostenosis
  • Hemangiomas, the most common tumor in infancy, as well as other vascular malformations
  • Birth defects of the ear (protruding or absent ear)
  • Birth defects of the hands (webbed fingers, extra or missing digits)
  • Birth defects of the chest and limbs (breast anomalies)
  • Birthmarks and moles
  • Injuries to the head, face, neck, jaws, hands, arms, legs and trunk
  • Scar reduction and repair, including burn scars

We also perform aesthetic procedures such as:

  • Nose reshaping
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Ear and chin repositioning
  • Correction of jaw or bite abnormalities
