What Does Burn Surgery Involve?
Burn surgery is typically done in two phases. During the first phase, the doctor removes the burnt tissue, stabilizes the patient’s condition, and closes the wounds. The reconstructive phase, which is also performed by our cosmetic surgeon, is performed after the patient has healed. Reconstructive surgery often involves a combination of scar revision and plastic surgery, and it is done to improve the patient’s appearance and restore the functionality of the burned body part. Contracture scars that restrict the patient’s range of motion are a common result of severe burns, and surgery may be used to correct them.
