About Burn Reconstruction
Our center focuses on the functional improvement and cosmetic appearance of sub-acute burns and scarring from burns. This involves removing or altering damaged and scarred tissue with both non-operative and /or operative treatment. Non-operative modalities could include corticosteroid injections and laser treatments while surgical techniques could include scar revision, skin grafting, tissue expansion, skin rearrangement (e.g. z-plasty), etc. Often times multiple procedures are necessary to maximize function and appearance.
