Was your child born with a facial disfigurement? Have they sustained an injury that has resulted in severe damage to their facial structures? REFINE Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics offers reconstructive surgery to help restore your child’s facial functionality, mobility, and appearance to help them lead a happier, healthier quality of life.
The Finest Care for Your Child
Dr. Bryant masterfully performs many varieties of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery for our pediatric patients. Some of the common abnormalities and injuries we correct include but are not limited to:
- Cleft lip
- Cleft palate
- Microtia and other ear irregularities
- Vascular malformations
- Burns and scarring from physical trauma
If your child is experiencing an injury or irregularity of the ears such as prominauris and is experiencing difficulty at school, Dr. Bryant performs otoplasty to correct the ears to improve not only aesthetic but hearing capabilities.
What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty is an advanced reconstructive procedure that is performed to correct the aesthetic and function of the ears. Dr. Bryant is a certified Earwell provider who has helped many children, both domestic and abroad discover healthier hearing. The extent of your childs procedure will ultimately depend on the severity and condition they may be experiencing.
If surgery is not an option, we also perform a non-surgical treatment known as ear-molding to correct ear deformities. If you would like to know more about either otoplasty or our non-surgical alternative, be sure to schedule a consultation for your child and meet with Dr. Bryant. We’ll be happy to address any questions or concerns you may have.

Before and Afters
This child above was born with a complete unilateral cleft lip deformity. The photo above is immediately before surgery. The photo on the bottom is from 1 year after surgery. He is doing well and can eat and talk like a normal child. Children born with cleft lip and palate deformities that are not treated often have great difficulty feeding because their lips cannot close to create a seal. Additionally, their palate is deformed so their nasal cavity is not separated from their mouth. This makes simple things like swallowing and speaking very difficult, if not impossible.
There are about 30 people that help on a surgical mission. This includes surgeons, assistant surgeons, scrub and circulating nurses, surgical assistants, anesthesiologists and CRNA’s, pediatricians and nurse practitioners. It is vital that the whole team work together effectively and communicate well for a surgical mission to be successful. Approximately 50-60 children receive surgical care during a 1 week mission.
