Pediatric plastic surgery

Our pediatric plastic surgeons have extensive experience treating the full spectrum of plastic surgical problems in pediatric and adolescent patients — from the common to the extremely rare.

If your child needs surgery to correct a deformity caused by a birth defect, injury, illness, or tumor, our pediatric plastic surgeons have the experience and qualifications to provide treatment.

Conditions we treat

Our pediatric plastic surgery physicians and staff play vital roles in correcting facial and other disfigurements for newborns, infants, and children — along with teens and some adults — with congenital or acquired disorders. Surgeons also work with the hospital’s trauma unit to help kids who are victims of serious injuries.

We treat a variety of conditions including:

  • Birth defects of the face and skull (cleft lip and palate, craniosynostosis)
  • Birth defects of the ear (protruding or absent ear)
  • Birth defects of the chest and limbs (misshapen breasts, webbed fingers)
  • Hand surgery for such congenital conditions as absent or extra digits or for repair of tendons, nerves, and fractures
  • Injuries to the head, face, hands, arms, and legs
  • Nasal deformity, congenital or traumatic, and rhinoplasty
  • Birthmarks and scars
  • Blood vessel malformations that affect the arteries, the veins, and the lymphatics
  • Breast or chest abnormalities
  • Facial paralysis
  • Jaw deformities
  • Major skin and/or soft tissue defects
  • Reconstructive surgery of burn deformities
  • Tumors of the head and neck
Our team
  • At UC Davis Children’s Hospital, our pediatric plastic surgeons collaborate closely with other pediatric specialists on multidisciplinary teams to provide optimal, coordinated care for children for a wide range of congenital or acquired disorders, including kids and teens who have had a serious injury or illness requiring plastic surgery expertise.
