Questions about our pediatric treatments and procedures?

Types of Pediatric Surgeries & Treatments

Craniofacial Surgery
Craniofacial surgery involves the correction of abnormalities in the skull, face, and head. Our pediatric plastic surgeons specialize in procedures such as craniosynostosis correction, craniofacial microsomia treatment, craniofacial trauma, and other complex craniofacial reconstructions to improve both function and aesthetics.
Microtia Reconstruction
Microtia is a congenital condition where the external ear is underdeveloped or absent. Our pediatric plastic surgeons utilize advanced techniques, such as autologous rib cartilage reconstruction, to create a new ear structure and enhance appearance.
Congenital Ear Abnormalities
Congenital ear abnormalities are quite common and can frequently be treated with non-surgical ear molding techniques if addressed early enough. Our surgeons specialize in non-surgical interventions to optimize the appearance of your child's ears. Prominent ears can also be treated in younger children with various surgical techniques.
Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Repair
Cleft lip and palate are among the most common birth defects. Our pediatric plastic surgeons have expertise in performing surgical procedures to close the gap in the lip and/or palate, enabling normal speech and eating and improving the overall appearance.
Cleft Rhinoplasty
Patients affected by cleft lip/palate may also benefit from cleft rhinoplasty to improve the appearance and symmetry of the nose and functional nasal breathing.
Vascular Anomalies Treatment
Our pediatric plastic surgeons collaborate with hematologists and interventional radiologists to diagnose and manage vascular anomalies such as vascular malformations and hemangiomas. They utilize a combination of surgical and non-surgical approaches to alleviate symptoms and improve appearance and function.
Congenital Nevus or Birthmark Treatments
Surgical techniques can range from simple or serial excisions (for smaller lesions) to tissue expansion and staged reconstruction for larger pigmented skin lesions. These procedures help remove unwanted or concerning skin discolorations in affected areas.
Burn & Scar Revision

Our Pediatric plastic surgeons utilize surgical and non-surgical scar revision techniques such as skin grafting or laser therapy to improve the appearance, functionality, and mobility of affected burn areas. Similar non-surgical or surgical techniques may be used for keloid or hypertrophic scars.

Complex Reconstructive Surgery

Our pediatric plastic surgeons specialize in complex reconstructive procedures to address intricate conditions resulting from congenital anomalies, traumatic injuries, or other medical factors. These surgeries aim to restore health, function, and aesthetics for children.

What to Expect

During Pediatric Surgery

We understand that undergoing surgery can be a daunting experience for both children and their families. We are committed to providing compassionate care and ensuring that you and your child feel informed, supported, and comfortable throughout the entire surgical journey. 

In addition to the technical expertise, our pediatric plastic surgeons take the time to explain procedures in a way that children can understand, helping to alleviate anxiety and ensure that both the child and their parents feel informed and confident in their decision-making. Here is an overview of what to expect during the process:


Pre-Op Evaluation & Consultation

Before the surgery, you and your child will have a thorough consultation with our pediatric surgeons. During this appointment, we will review your child's medical history, perform a physical examination, and discuss the surgical procedure in detail. We will take the time to address any concerns or questions you may have, ensuring that you have a clear understanding of what to expect. Patients and parents are always welcome to consult and rediscuss the surgical indications, plan, and recovery as many times as needed before surgery to ensure comfort.


Preparing for Surgery

Our team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare your child for the surgery. This may include guidelines on fasting, medication administration, and any necessary preoperative tests. We will guide you through the process and provide support to ensure that your child is well-prepared and comfortable before the procedure.


Day of Surgery

On the day of the surgery, our caring staff will greet you and your child, providing a warm and reassuring environment. We will walk you through the itinerary for the day and answer any last-minute questions you may have. Our team will prioritize your child's comfort, ensuring their safety and well-being throughout the procedure.


Surgical Procedure

Our skilled pediatric surgeons will perform the surgical procedure with precision and expertise. Depending on the complexity of the surgery, the duration may vary. Our operating rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, allowing us to provide the highest standard of surgical care for your child.


Recovery & Postoperative Care

After the surgery, your child will be transferred to a designated recovery area, where our dedicated nurses and healthcare professionals will closely monitor their condition. We will provide appropriate pain management and support to ensure your child's comfort during the recovery process. Our team will provide comprehensive postoperative instructions, including wound care, medication administration, and follow-up appointments.


Follow-Up Care

We believe in the importance of long-term follow-up care for our pediatric patients. Our team will schedule regular appointments to monitor your child's progress, assess the healing process, and address any concerns that may arise. We are dedicated to supporting your child's recovery journey and ensuring their optimal outcomes.

To that end, our pediatric care considers the functional, emotional, and psychological well-being of the child and engages a multidisciplinary team, including pediatricians, psychologists, and other
