I already have made a page on functional deformity “contracture”, this page will tell you cosmetic aspects of burn injury. Cosmetic procedures can lead to disfiguring scars that not only affects the skin, but also his mental state.
Constant awkward looks by people, decreased confidence in gatherings and feeling of depression is quite common with scars. These are particularly concerning if the face is involved.
Cosmetic surgery in burns have multiple dimensions, for e.g., we can replace the variegated appearing scars into smooth single shade scars by dermabrasion and grafting.
This procedure involves removing a thin layer of scar and applying a uniform layer of ultrathin graft. The same result may be achieved by multiples sittings of lasers in a carefully selected patient.
Various techniques like Z-plasty, expanders, Lasers, Skin grafting, and Skin flaps may be used alone or in combination to make the patient look better than before. We also used hair transplants to restore eyebrows, moustache, beard and hair for burn patients.
A Z-plasty breaks the scar line and reduces skin hypertrophy, which allows a better well settled scar than before. This is a type of burn cosmetic surgery that depends on skin rearrangement to give best before and after results for cosmetic scar treatments.
An expander is a 2 stages process where normal skin placed with a silicon expander placed in the first stage of surgery. In next few weeks this expander is filled with saline. Once normal skin is expanded it is used to remove burn injury skin and give normal skin cover. This is especially helpful in removing scalp scars and restoring hair after burn injury. Expanders give excellent results in burn scar on head.
Lasers especially CO2 lasers selectively does skin damage and boosts collagen synthesis to improve skin quality. These are good for early and minor burn scars. Patient selection is very important for good outcomes.
