The field of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery deals with special surgical techniques to treat children with birth defects, disfiguring diseases, and conditions which lead to physical and bodily disfigurement. For example : children born with ‘ Hare Lip ‘, or Cleft Lip and Palate fall in the category of birth defects which can be corrected by or Plastic and Reconstructive surgeons. The results are amazing with a normal appearance in most children to near normal appearance following surgery.
Sometimes, due to unfortunate circumstances in children, some of them sustain injuries and burns accidentally ( hot water scalds, electrical shock, fire accidents , motor vehicle accidents, accidental falls, etc ) causing a whole range of injuries, scars and disfigurement from mild to severe. Plastic Surgeons can reverse the process in most instances and restore, not only the normal appearance but also function.
Burns in children is distressing for the child with intense pain, emotional feelings and feelings of helplessness ! The entire family is distraught and disturbed with sometimes other members of the family being involved in the incident. We at Lotus Children’s Hospital have established a very ‘ holistic approach ‘ to such patients.
