 Plastic surgery in children
 
Children may need plastic and reconstructive surgery as a result of  congenital deformities (deformities at birth) or acquired anomalies. Such deformities occurring in the facial and neck regions requires the expertise of a specialist who focuses on the face. Dr Boahene treats children with various birth and acquired defects with the expertise acquired from years of training, observation and practice in special centers dedicated to the care of children (Mayo clinic, Australian craniofacial center, Minneapolis children’s hospital, Johns Hopkins hospital).

Stories of our patients 
 
At 16 months of age, our young patient already had a crooked smile. An MRI detected a tumor on the facial nerve as it exist the brain cavity to enter the ear. After years of searching for the right treatment, our team resected this tumor through aminimally invasive approach. Dr Boahene rerouted the facial nerve to the neck recruiting nerve fibers destined to the tongue to help animate the face. At such a young age, the brain is plastic and highly capable of adapting to this new change. Now at age 4, our young patient now has a near perfect smile.
 

Procedures  
Microtia repair: making an ear
 
Making a complete ear for a child born without one is one of the most rewarding and life changing proceudres performed for children. This procedure calls on the sculting skills of plastic surgeons. In our practice, a complete ear can be made in a 2 to 3 stage procedure over a period of 3 to 6 months
  
  
  
 A template from the normal ear is used in design the details and orientation of the new ear. A piece of rib cartilage is harvested and meticulously sculptured and assembled to form the ear frame work. The sculptured cartilage is buried under the skin. Six months later, the new ear is elevated to match the normal side.
