Hi there!

Well, this would depend on how much of the fingers are missing, surrounding structures, associated abnormalities, structures or tissue available for reconstruction etc. It may not be an easy reconstruction to perform and chances are that it may not restore the function. However it may be done for cosmetic reason if feasible. Also it is better to perform such surgeries later in life, though it would not be possible to comment precisely on the situation without a clinical evaluation. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician, preferable at a teaching/ university hospital for a detailed evaluation and an opinion regarding the same.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
