How burn scars can be helped
There are a number of methods that can be used to help decrease the appearance of burn scars, depending on the severity of your scars and other factors the surgeon will go over with you. One option for severe burn scars a skin graft where healthy skin will be removed from one part of your body and grafted in the areas where the scars are; donor skin can also be used for skin grafts. For minor burn scars, lasers may be used to help reduce the scarring.

If you have scars from an accident, a condition, or even from past surgeries, then you may be able to have the scars taken care of with the use of lasers. For serious scars, skin grafts or other procedures may also be viable options.
How to correct cancer removal sites
If you are looking at reconstructive surgery following a procedure to remove cancer, then you may be looking at a procedure referred to as a free flap. This procedure involves skin, muscle, and/or bone to be transferred from a donor area to the area that needs the reconstruction. Part of this type of corrective surgery generally also involves microsurgery.
How missing areas can be repaired
If you lose a large area of skin (or more than just skin), then microsurgery may be able to help. Microsurgery is able to re-attach large pieces of skin or digits under the right conditions. If you have just had an accident and you lose something like a finger or toe, then it is very important for you to find that missing piece and get it onto ice immediately. Get to the nearest emergency room with the ice and the part you lost.Share
