As the mother of three young children, taking care of kids who require plastic and reconstructive surgery is a great joy of my job. Not only do I appreciate the gentle and delicate way kids relate to adults (especially scary doctors), but I also understand the things that can help keep them at ease.
Singing Wheels on the Bus, watching Peppa Pig, giving out stickers and band-aids, sharing (sugar free) candies, and playing doctor to stuffed animals-- these are all part of my routine when helping kids through their tough times.
Whether your little one has a facial laceration from a fall on the playground, a hand injury from a mishap at home, a congential anomaly, a suspicious mole, or anything else, please do not hesitate to reach out to me if I may be of help. I take care of pediatric patients ranging in age from birth through the teenage years and beyond. I address concerns such as teenage breast reduction, teenage rhinoplasty (or nose job surgery), teenage torn earlobes from ear piercings, dog bites, cat scratches, and conditions that your child may have been born with such as cleft lip and palate.
You may call my office 24-7 at (212) 452-2400 for either routine or emergency concerns, and you may always reach out to me via email at info@LaraDevganMD.com.
