The skin, muscle, bone and other tissues of the face and body can be destroyed from burn injuries. From fire to chemicals, burn injuries can disfigure the skin and tissue, causing extensive aesthetic and functional concerns. At HMS Plastic Surgery, our board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Harry Salinas, can perform complex plastic surgery for burn injuries at our center in Miami, FL.

Even once the wounds heal, victims of burn injuries may be left with uncomfortable, restrictive scar tissue that can impact the aesthetics and function of the burned feature or area on the body. Plastic surgery for burn injuries is used to not only improve the appearance of the skin and surrounding tissue, but to offer improved movement, function and comfort for the patients. Some plastic surgery methods for burn injury reconstruction include skin graft, tissue expansion, free flap and scar revision surgery.
