Burns reconstruction became a grave necessity during the Second World War, as military fire power became more and more devastating. Out of this horrible need, many of our current techniques of plastic surgery have been developed. The management of burns has fortunately come a long way since the war.
Burns first aid.
Do you know the best way to treat a burn initially? The first aid treatment can make an enormous difference to the damage that the burn causes.
Specialised burns management
Both in the acute management of burns, or to improve scars or function following an old burn, plastic surgery offers the full range of treatments. This may involve anything from specialised wound management and dressing techniques, through to skin grafting or flap surgery. There is also often the need for splinting or pressure garments with the aid of an occupational therapist or physiotherapist.
Old burns scars can often be unsightly, and can thicken, contract and limit movement. Any of these problems may require scar management techniques or surgery to correct. Dr Campbell can advise you on all aspects of burns treatment and scar management.
