New surgical technique helps with severe scarring
If you suffered severe skin injuries in an accident and are disfigured by scarring, it may feel as if your life is over. You may be too upset to go and face the world again, especially if your accident was somebody else’s fault. Feeling safe, respected and loved for who we are are fundamental factors in the way we live our lives. The disfigurement of one’s face, and therefore the loss of facial expressions when interacting with others, may feel to an accident victim as if they have lost a part of themselves.
A new surgical technique known as tissue expansion helps victims of burns and scalds or other skin injuries that cause severe scarring to get their lives back. In a relatively straightforward surgical procedure, the body is enabled to “grow” an additional patch of skin. This in turn allows surgeons to reconstruct almost any part of the body.
In the procedure, surgeons insert a balloon-like device (expander) under the skin near the area that needs repairing. This is then gradually filled with salt water. Over a period of time, the expander causes the skin to grow and stretch. The technique is often used on accident victims, but also applied where women with breast cancer have had a mastectomy (removal of the breast).
