Congenital Breast Anomaly Clinic

Parents have many questions when they learn that their child has a congenital difference. Often this can cause much mental and social stress for both the child and family.

The Congenital Breast Anomaly Clinic is part of the Division of Pediatric Plastic Surgery at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.

Our plastic surgeons offer complete breast reconstruction care to young people, up to age 25, who are born with:

  • Asymmetry
  • Underdeveloped or overdeveloped structures
  • Missing structures

Treating breast problems in children, teens, and young adults requires careful regard to further growth and development.

At Children’s, our experts take special care to think through all aspects of a diagnosis for you or your child. We assess future growth and the psychosocial welfare for you or your child.
