Plastic surgery for children can help to correct abnormal development both to restore function and to restore a more normal appearance.
Oral-facial clefts –
Oral-facial clefts are among the most common birth defects in the United States. There are two types of oral-facial clefts; cleft lip and cleft palate. These can occur together or as separate abnormalities. The cleft lip is a separation of the upper lip and can include the bone and gum. The cleft palate happens when the sides of the palate do not fuse together correctly. These abnormalities can lead to problems with eating, talking and ear infections and can also affect the way the child’s face looks.
Deformation plagiocephaly – An abnormally shaped head commonly caused by external forces such as pressure on the fetus' skull before birth or repetitive sleep positioning after birth. Treatment usually consists of positioning exercises or wearing a customized helmet.
