Pediatric plastic surgery encompasses a variety of surgical procedures that correct both the appearance and function of a child. When surgery is necessary, it is usually due to either a condition a child was born with (congenital) or a traumatic injury. Common conditions treated by pediatric plastic surgeons include cleft lip and palate, hemangiomas and congenital absence of an ear (microtia).
