Reconstructive Burn surgery

Reconstructive surgery is a cosmetic surgery which is performed by a cosmetic surgeon after the initial burn mark has already healed. The Surgery is done to improve the physical appearance and function of that part of the body. In this treatment, scar tissues are altered using operative methods of treatment.

It usually takes years for the completion of this procedure and usually, the relationship between patient and surgeon lasts for years. It takes months for this surgery to finally show visible results and usually new surgery is required years after the first one. This usually happens in young patients because their body structure is constantly changing.

What to expect?

It should be kept in mind that the burn marks cannot be completely removed through this procedure but would rather make it less visible. Burns mostly limits the motion of different parts of the body. Surgery is often done to release these parts of the body. So the goal is not just the limiting the visibility of the scar.
