Burn Injury Surgical Procedures

If you have suffered from a burn injury in an accident in Georgia, there are 2 major types of surgical procedures which may help conceal scarring and replace body tissue. These procedures are known as dermabrasion and skin grafting.

Dermabrasion can help to improve or minimize the appearance of burn injury scars, as well as repair disfigurement in some cases. This procedure is used to smooth over scar tissue by shaving or scraping off the top layer of a patient's skin.

A skin graft is a surgical procedure in which a piece of skin is taken from one area of a patient's body and transplanted to the area that was burned. In some cases, skin from another person's body, or from an animal, may be temporarily used to cover a burn injury, which can help to mitigate the loss of fluids.

Your doctor can advise you on any treatments that may help after sustaining a serious burn injury. While these treatments can be very expensive, you may be able to recover some expenses for your medical treatments through a personal injury claim if your burn injuries were caused by another person's negligence.

Before you file a burn injury claim, you should discuss your case with a Fulton County personal injury lawyer who can explain the claims process, help you determine liability and estimate the current and future costs associated with your injuries.
