Children's Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Plastic surgery performed on children is most often conducted for reconstructive or cosmetic purposes. In children, this line is often blurred, as many congenital deformities impair physical function as well as aesthetics. Plastic surgeons at Batson Children's Hospital, a part of Children's of Mississippi, are among the best at corrective procedures, providing young patients with opportunities for an active childhood. A physician's referral is not necessary for a consultation with one of our skilled surgery specialists.

Because our physicians also serve as faculty members at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, patients have the added benefit of knowing they are receiving care from experts with the most up-to-date knowledge and training. The latest surgical and non-surgical techniques are used to improve outcomes and shorten recovery times.
