Pediatric Procedures under Local Anesthesia

 
Dr. Nicholas Bastidas is a leader in pediatric & adult craniofacial reconstructive & plastic surgery in New York & Long Island treating a range of conditions.
 

Having your child undergo general anesthesia is often anxiety inducing for most parents. Most doctors are uncomfortable operating on awake children, even for small procedures such as the removal of simple lumps and bumps. As a fellowship trained pediatric plastic surgeon, Dr. Bastidas can safely perform a large portion of procedures in the office under local anesthesia.

These procedures include but are not limited to:

  • Birthmark excision
  • Skin Biopsies
  • Skin tag removal / Ear remnants
  • Cyst Removals
  • Removal of Extra fingers and toes
  • Laser Procedures
  • Tongue Tie Release
  • Ear Pinning (child usually at least 6-8 yrs old)
  • Repair of lacerations and cuts
 

We encourage feeding your child immediately before the procedure to relax them. Parents are allowed to stay in the room if they wish during the entire procedure.

Removed a dermoid cyst from my seven-month-old. Procedure duration was shorter than expected. No ill effects from anasthesia, and no post-op Tylenol required. Superb incision healed very quickly, in spite of a rambunctious infants’ sabotaging efforts.
Our newborn had ears that were folded down on top. Our experience with this dr couldnt be better. He assured us he could help, that it was non invasive, no downside. the results speak for themselves. The ears are perfect now. Thank u so much!!
