What is Burn Reconstructive Surgery?
This is a surgical procedure for burn victims who are suffering from mild to extreme scarring left after the burning of the skin. As burning can affect the aesthetic appearance of the person and can also affect the functionality or mobility of the person, so by the help of Burn reconstructive surgery the surgeon will help you regain your look. In this treatment procedure, the surgeon may perform a scar removal treatment or may remove the skin from the anatomical region and place it on the affected area due to skin burn. This reconstructive surgery can also be used to treat deformities caused by cancer, accident, or any type of trauma.
Right Candidate for the Surgery:
Before undergoing the burn reconstructive surgery the surgeon will examine your affected area and will ask about your past and undergoing health condition to analyse that you’re the right candidate for the surgery.

- You wish to restore your appearance, which the burn has altered.
- There is no prior history of bleeding issues in you.
- Your expectations for the process are favourable.
- You are older than 20 and wish to regain your confidence

As the skin will take some time to heal, and after a few weeks of burn reconstructive surgery your scars will start to fade away and if your mobility is affected then it will start to improve over time. But once you have achieved the results then it will be permanent.
How to Prepare for the Treatment?
Before the surgery, the doctor will give you medications if you have any type of skin allergy and will give you the instructions which you have to follow for a smooth procedure and optimal results. The instructions include:
- Quit smoking and drinking alcoholic beverages as it will lead to slow healing
