Facial Burn Injury Plastic Surgeon

When a burn injury occurs on the face, it is not just an aesthetic concern for the patient. While burns can be disfiguring, they can also impact the movement of the face, which is important for facial expression, chewing, sight and nasal breathing. Dr. Rousso is an elite facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with extensive experience in addressing both form and function when performing surgery on injuries to the face, including those created from severe burns.

When contemplating plastic reconstructive surgery for burn injuries, Dr. Rousso’s expertise in this specialized field helps him plan and prepare to address the many concerns of this complex procedure. The bone, muscles, tendons and skin of the face may need reconstruction to give the patient the most mobility in the facial functions, while also considering the aesthetic appearance after the surgery. Each case is different and may require various methods and techniques to create the best results. Dr. Rousso customizes each procedure based on the injury and the desires of the patient.

Skin Grafts for Facial Burns

With almost all facial burn injury plastic surgeries, skin grafts will be needed to complete the process. While it is impossible to completely hide all the evidence of a severe burn, skin grafts and reconstructive techniques can greatly improve the function and appearance of the face. Burn injuries are by nature one of the most difficult facial plastic surgeries in the field. This is why having a world-class double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, like Dr. Rousso, is the best option for this procedure.
