Dr. John Girotto shared reasons why kids may be candidates for plastic surgery.

The pediatric plastic surgery program at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital serves infants, children and teens whose growing bodies need repair or reconstruction for a wide variety of reasons. Sometimes it’s a condition of birth, such as a cleft lip/palate or a pigmented birthmark. Sometimes it’s an aspect that appears later, such as abnormal breast development. And sometimes it’s a result of trauma, such as a dog bite or a car accident.

Whatever the reason, our plastic surgeons use the latest technology and expertise to evaluate and treat all types of conditions, from the minor to the complex. We provide expert follow-up care as needed, including prosthetics and speech and language services. Plastic surgery can involve a person’s appearance and ability to function, and our specialists strive to improve both.
