Congenital Breast Anomaly Clinic

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

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

We offer complete breast reconstruction care to young people with conditions that include:

  • Asymmetry
  • Dysphoria
  • Underdeveloped or overdeveloped structures
  • Missing structures

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

At UPMC 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.
