Facial and Plastic Surgery

Facial and Plastic Surgery

Pediatric plastic surgery is a surgical subspecialty that focuses on the reconstructive and aesthetic enhancement of a child’s appearance with the goal of restoring functionality and improving the quality of life for those with anomalies, whether congenital or acquired as a result of a disorder or traumatic event.

Pediatric Plastic Surgery

Reconstructive surgery is used to improve functioning by correcting an anatomical abnormality. Aesthetic surgery is used to restore a person’s shape and appearance. In most cases, a combination of these two types of surgery is used to treat the pediatric population.

There are many different areas within the subspecialty, too, including:

Craniofacial and cleft surgery: for patients born with facial differences, craniosynostosis (premature fusion of skull sutures resulting in an abnormally shaped head), and facial fractures;

General pediatric plastic surgery: for treatment of moles, cysts, tumors, burns, traumatic injuries, complex wounds, and vascular anomalies.

Aesthetic plastic surgery: the correction of defects via treatments such as body contouring, rhinoplasty, otoplasty (prominent ears)

Pediatric hand surgery is used to correct congenital hand/wrist and upper-extremity defects, as well as those caused by infection, trauma, or malignancies.

Microvascular surgery is the surgical repair of blood vessels and nerves under the microscope in order to restore and cure soft tissue disorders or skeletal deformities, such as finger/hand amputation with replantation, brachial plexus repair, or free tissue transfer for wound covering, and facial paralysis.
