Who needs treatment for burn scars?

Patients who have met the following criteria after sustaining a burn and are candidates for plastic surgery

  • For those who have lost feeling due to the burn,
  • Surgical reconstruction of the burn's aesthetics, if necessary.

The aim of plastic or burn wound reconstructive surgery:

The major goal of plastic surgery for burns is to repair damaged skin or replace scar tissue. Patients with severe burns' long-term functional and aesthetic consequences have a heightened need for plastic surgery.

The benefits of undergoing treatment for burn wounds

A person's sense of self-worth and confidence might be boosted by plastic surgery if they have suffered from severe burns. Face, lips, ears, and eyes are vulnerable to severe burns. In addition to emotional distress, this might lead to physical deformities. Therefore, the confidence of the patient might be increased once plastic surgery is performed to restore those components.

The benefits of undergoing treatment for burn wounds or infection:

  • Plastic surgery can increase a burn victim's self-esteem and confidence.
  • Burns to the nose or nasal cavity may be treated with plastic surgery. Nasal restoration promotes breathing and sleep.
  • Burn victims may have vision impairment due to sagging eyelids or fat and muscle growth around the eyes. Blepharoplasty can enhance eyesight.
