Aesthetic burn surgery, what is it?
Burn repair surgery is a procedure performed by a cosmetic surgeon after the initial wounds of a burn have healed. The goal of the surgery is to mask the defect (the scar) and restore the appearance of the skin. Some of these procedures involve several months of preparation to improve the scar tissue.
Burn surgery is chosen by patients experiencing long-term negative effects of burns, functionally or aesthetically.

Burn Surgery: Management
Surgical techniques usually include scar release procedures, where scars are opened and then repaired by a plastic surgeon. Some of these cosmetic burn surgery techniques require skin grafts.
In cases where the after-effects of burns result in functional impairment or impaired growth in a child, surgery may be started early. Regardless of the delay in the management of the after-effects of burns, the use of local flaps (Z, trident ...) or skin grafts will be the most frequently used means.
The procedure is generally ambulatory, but skin grafting treatments may require a stay.
Prior to burn surgery, doctors and patients will discuss any allergies and medications the patient is taking in the weeks before surgery. The doctor will usually ask the patient to stop smoking, take vitamins and adjust medication plans before surgery.
