Accidental burn injury is quite common in India. The first remedial action to be taken after sustaining burns is to cool the area by pouring lots of cold water on it. Do not apply Ice.

Usually patients apply various substances like ink, coffee, sandalwood paste and so on. Such remedies can do more harm than help treat the burn area. What is advisable is to cover the area with a clean cloth and seek immediate medical help. If absolutely necessary, one may apply a water soluble antibiotic cream.

The plastic surgeon has a role to play both in the initial stages of burn injury treatment as well as later stages which involve correction of secondary deformities.

The acute phase may involve hospitalization for several days and may require repeated operations under general anaesthesia. This would be either toremove dead skin or graft a fresh skin over the injured area.

After the patient recovers completely, he/she may develop secondary deformities in the form of scars, contractures and functional problems.

The secondary problems may require correction procedures like skin grafting, flaps or tissue expansion technique. All these procedures aim to add skin to the affected areas.

Tissue expansion is a procedure where, in the first stage a balloon is inserted into the normal skin near the scarred skin. This normal skin is expanded by injecting salt water through a valve into the balloon. The skin expands just like a woman’s belly does during pregnancy. Once the desired level of expansion is achieved, which normally takes a few months, the balloon is removed and the good skin is advanced over the scarred area. This means that one needs to undergo two surgeries. This technique can also be used in other problems where extra skin is required.
