Burns

Burns can vary dramatically dependent on the body tissue that has been affected. In addition to the skin, muscle, bone and blood vessels can also be damaged and can result in extreme pain to the nerves.

Reconstructive surgery which normally takes place months, or even years after the burn injury improves the appearance of the scarring. There are many surgical techniques used in the treatment of burns including:

Skin graft – taking skin from one area of the body and using to cover the affected area.

Flap surgery – the transfer of a living piece of tissue with the blood vessel to keep it alive. This restores function of small areas that have lost muscle movement, skin, fat or skeletal support.

Tissue expansion – this procedure enables the body to grow extra skin. Similar to the stomach stretching during pregnancy, tissue expansion involves stretch the surrounding tissue to help grow extra skin.
