Traumatic burn injury can vary in severity and, depending on its size of the burnt area and the severity of the burn, it can be life threatening or result in significant scarring and functional problems. A plastic surgeon should be consulted in the immediate burn management if it is extended/deep, over joints, involves face, hands feet and in all cases of chemical burns. Furthermore, plastic surgeons can help improve the appearance of scars and the function of affected areas. This can offer a significant improvement in the patient’s quality of life.
