Facial Plastics and Reconstruction

Facial Plastics and Reconstruction

Pediatrics by Doug Leventhal, M.D.

Pediatric plastic surgery is comprised of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery performed on children. These are surgeries to correct birth defects involving the head and neck (cleft lip or palate, skull or nasal deformities, protruding or absent ears), trauma (lacerations or cuts on the face, broken bones of the face), birthmarks or scars, burns, or cosmetic surgery to improve a child’s self-esteem and social confidence. ENT & Allergy has qualified plastic surgeons who can provide the unique care that these children need.
