Burn injuries can significantly damage tissue and skin, leaving long-term disfiguration. When burn injuries occur on the face, it can be devastating for the victim. Burns can destroy skin, fatty tissue, muscles and even bone, changing the facial appearance permanently. Our experienced plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Ali Charafeddine, at Eden Plastic Surgery Institute, can perform plastic surgery for facial burn injuries to reshape the face at our medical center in Miami.
Burn injuries are unique in the way they damage skin and tissue. A laceration does not remove tissue, as the skin, muscle and fatty tissue can repair, even if a scar is left behind. With burn injuries, the cells are destroyed, and tissue is lost. Facial burns can leave indentations and mutilated tissue behind with extensive scarring. To repair the facial tissue, skin and features and recreate the facial form, innovative reconstructive techniques are needed for burn injuries.
