Extensive burns are a very serious threat to the health and lives of the unfortunate burn victims. They should be treated in a special Burn Centre. Fortunately, in recent years because of rising living standards those incidents have redused in number and gravity. In the Plastic Surgeon’s practice only minor burns can be treated . We study the depth and extent of the damage and determine the type of treatment may be conservative or surgical.
Treatment of burns assosiated problems
A different approach is the old burns that have caused some permanent damage (alopecia, adhesive scars, deformities, etc.). All possible remedies are explained in detail to the patient to obtain a true picture of the result before deciding to get into this process.
We use all the procedures of Plastic Surgery beggining with the simpler ones such as serial excision, skin grafts and local flaps and depending on the patients needs also more complicated methods such as microsurgery and free tissue transfer.
