Expertise for Children and Teens

Our world-class plastic surgeons help children who need plastic or reconstructive surgery for facial impairments, congenital deformities (birth defects), genetic syndromes, tumors and injuries involving the skull, face, mouth, ears and eyes, jaw, and blood vessels. Pediatric plastic surgery isn’t just about improving a child’s appearance — it’s about improving function and helping kids feel comfortable, inside and out.
