Children

We offer a range of plastic and reconstructive surgery for children.

Plastic and reconstructive surgery for CHILDREN'S ACUTE INJURIES

Wakefield Plastic Surgery offers a trauma service for acute injuries to children.

We treat patients with health insurance as well as those covered by Workcover. Referrals can be made directly by your local doctor or via Private and Public Hospital Emergency Departments.

We work closely with Wakefield Hospital and St Andrew Hospital Emergencies Physicians and can admit directly to both these hospitals.

CHILDREN'S HAND SURGERY

Some of our surgeons have extensive overseas training in children’s congenital, elective and acute hand surgery.

Hand surgery in the young presents some unique challenges. The pathology is unique, the fact that a child is still growing needs to be considered and the patients are not able to understand post-surgery instructions means that this surgery is best performed by those specifically trained to do it.

To learn more about the treatment options available for children's hands, please contact our rooms.

Plastic and reconstructive surgery for CHILDREN'S LUMPS AND BUMPS

Children may develop a large number of odd looking lumps and bumps. The vast majority of these are completely benign. At your child’s consult we will assess the lesion that concerns you both and advise what it is and whether surgery is recommended.

To learn more about the treatment options available for children's lumps and bumps, please contact our rooms.

Plastic and reconstructive surgery for PROMINENT EARS

Ear surgery, also referred to as “otoplasty”, aims to correct prominent ears. This procedure is common in children as prominent ears can be very embarrassing and often causes them a great deal of distress. This surgery can be performed at a young age, however, it is not uncommon for teenagers and adults to have this surgery later in life.

This procedure is performed as a day case under a general anaesthetic and scars are hidden behind the ear. Surgery involves reshaping and then resetting the ear cartilage closer to the side of the head. A head bandage is worn for a week.

To learn more about the treatment options available for children's prominent ears , please contact our rooms.

Plastic and reconstructive surgery for CHILDREN'S SCARS

Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin as part of the wound healing process. Most scars are flat thin and pale. However, there are four common types of problem scars:
  1. Scar contractures. May result in loss of joint movement or skin puckering and tightness
  2. Prominent scars. Usually long or wide scars. Certain facial scars become prominent.
  3. Hypertrophic scars. These appear as lumpy or stretched scars
  4. Keloid scars. Disfiguring scars that grow beyond the original wound
Each scar needs to be assessed individually. Management is highly specialised with a variety of non-surgical and surgical options available.

To learn more about the treatment options available for children's scars, please contact our rooms.
