Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital

Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Update: We are now offering telemedicine consultations and follow-up appointments with the plastic and reconstructive surgery program, for the health and safety of our patients while coronavirus (COVID-19) is present in Florida. For appointment scheduling, please call 727-767-4920.

As a parent, you probably never expected your child to need a plastic surgeon. Whether they have a birthmark or a complex malformation, our pediatric plastic surgeons are sensitive to the ongoing health and confidence of your child. We work with you to explain all your options, and what to expect, so together we can choose the best treatment plan.

Skilled and Compassionate Care for All Children

Our pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgeons treat infants and children with a very wide range of conditions, including facial birth defects, cleft lip and palate repair, corrective jaw surgery and treatments for hemangiomas, craniosynostosis, hemifacial microsomia, facial palsy, Apert syndrome, Crouzon syndrome, Pfeiffer syndrome, microtia and more. We also treat patients with traumatic injuries and problems resulting from the treatment of cancer and other conditions. We are proud to have one of the most robust pediatric plastic surgery programs in the Tampa Bay, Florida region.

Pediatric plastic surgery at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital also plays an important role in our multidisciplinary Vascular Anomalies Clinic, treating patients with deformities resulting from hemangiomas, vascular tumors and vascular malformations, and syndromic overgrowth conditions.

Vascular Anomalies

Vascular anomalies can refer to a wide variety of issues, including infantile hemangiomas (which may disappear on their own) benign tumors, birth marks, and malformations of blood vessels. Some of these conditions require medications, surgery, or interventional radiology to for treatment. Our vascular anomalies team members are committed to providing specialized care for your child.

Prenatal Counseling

Craniofacial conditions are now commonly diagnosed before a child is born. Our pediatric plastic surgeons are happy to meet with expecting parents when a diagnosis of a craniofacial condition is made to help you understand what to expect when your baby is born.
