Pediatric plastic surgery is a subspecialty of plastic and reconstructive surgery that addresses the unique anatomy and needs of children. These are children born with birth deformities, hurt in an accident, or bullied in school.
Pediatric plastic surgeons are required to have additional 1-2 years of training beyond their plastic surgery residency. Although others may perform some pediatric plastic surgery, it is important to inquire into their qualifications to treat children.
