    • Deformities of hands and limbs.

    • Pediatric tumors.

    • Trauma.

    • intersex conditions.


Reconstructive plastic surgery has a special chapter about pediatric reconstructive surgery. Thus, a good number of certified plastic surgeon colleagues dedicate their time to perform this type of surgeries, which in most cases have an important congenital component.

Those dedicated to this area take into account the special conditions of child patients, including different levels of empathy, patience, and the need for a greater dose of support for both the patient and their family. In addition, the very different characteristics of every treatment of these childhood pathologies.

A significant number of these procedures are performed by groups or foundations created for this purpose, such as “operación sonrisa”. This institution and others provide their services in many countries around the world. It is very important that their treatments are integrated into the national health system.
