This young man sustained a severe electrical injury and almost his life. The burn was the most severe kind, involving all the layers of the skin and even the underlying fat, cartilage and muscle.

After life saving procedures were completed, reconstructive procedures were started. The scars on his face were limiting his ability to open his mouth, turn his head, itchy, painful, pulling on his lower eyelid and disfiguring.

One year after his tissue expansion and grafting procedures, most of the hypertrophic scars on his face were excised. The base of his nose was reconstructed. He had better lip motion. He was able to close his eyes.

This woman suffered from scars to her face. She also suffered from a loss of fat beneath the skin. This made her feel self-conscious.

She underwent “tissue expansion” where the normal skin was stretched and then the scars on her face were excised. This picture shows her 2 years after surgery. She still has a contour deformity at her jaw line.
This picture shows her three years after the scar revision surgery and 1 year after liposuction of the jowl region. While she has a feint scar on her cheek, her overall appearance is better.

This woman has scars to her inner arm due to a gunshot injury. Multiple pellets were removed. She also had tissue expansion of the surrounding skin around the scars.
The scars were removed and the “stretched skin” was advanced to replace the scars that were excised. She also received some abrasion of the treatment area, which helped improve the appearance.

B: This young man sustained superficial and deep second-degree burns to his chest and abdomen. Despite compressive garments, he developed hypertrophic scars long after leaving the hospital. These scars were itchy, painful and disfiguring.

A: A two-stage process was performed. First his scars were removed and then a new “dermal” layer was applied. Two weeks later, a thin skin graft was placed on the new collagen. Only six months after surgery, his symptoms are better and he does not have a return of the hypertrophic scars. His scars will improve in appearance over time.
