Often burn victims need reconstructive surgery to get rid of the scars after the burn has healed, which in very severe cases can take up to two years to fully recover. The painfully slow restoration process can turn the patient’s world upside down especially if the burn involves face, hands or other visible areas of the body.

Burn reconstructive surgery can save such patients from the devastating effects of the trauma by taking charge of burn cases from the very beginning. If a burn case is tackled by a reconstructive plastic surgeon immediately after the burn occurs, it can be most satisfactorily cured as the surgeon will be able to strategically plan the whole recovery process.
Burn recovery process is often divided into the following three stages:
Immediate Reconstructive Surgery
This involves the on-the-spot treatment and surgery for the initial burn. At this stage the surgeon will operate with the foresight of an attainable goal for the final form and function of the affected area.
Early Reconstructive Surgery
This stage involves any surgery or treatment given to the patient within the first six months following the burn injury while the scars are still immature. Many burn patients request a reconstructive plastic surgery in this stage.
Late Reconstructive Surgery
This is the stage in which burn scars become mature or appear to have taken permanent unsightly shape. Often, burn patients in this stage require fewer surgeries as often some difficulty is already rehabilitated with time. Generally, reconstructive efforts made in this stage are more successful.
Recovery from burns has three aspects:
- Patients often want to get their old normal appearance back with all the burn scars totally removed. This is an unrealistic goal for reconstructive plastic surgery given the current state of technology. The patient must be ready for at least a small compromise. Any inflated expectations on their part will lead to dissatisfaction with the best treatment available.
- Patients want also to have the functionality of the affected organ restored. This is what the surgeon views as one of his primary objectives. However, the degree of success in this regard largely depends more on what can be
possibly achieved in a given condition than on the state of the technology or the surgeon’s expertise.
- Patients need help to recover psychologically. While a professional assistance may be required in very severe cases, most patients fare well with a compassionate surgeon a decent staff who is trained to be sensitive to the patents’ emotional needs.
