Burn scars are the result of the wound healing, following a partial or full-thickness thermal injury. Thermal injury can frequently result in extensive scarring, which may have a profound psychological impact on the victim, serving as a visible reminder of a traumatic event. Dr. Zaydon can help you feel and look more physically appealing and regain that confidence that you once had.
ypertrophic burn scars are notoriously difficult to treat because of their extensive tissue involvement and tendency to worsen with hypertrophy and contracture formation. Various therapies have been advocated in the past, including surgical excision and grafting, dermabrasion, and corticosteroids.
If your burn was sustained while at work, the medical treatment may be covered by your employer’s Workers’ Compensation insurance. Read more about Dr. Zaydon and his role as a Workers Compensation plastic surgeon.
