Darrell L. Henderson, MD provides cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to patients in Lafayette, LA with who have burned their hands and wrists as a result of fire, chemical burns, and other injuries to improve mobility and reduce scarring.

While treatments for burns on your hands and wrists will not completely eliminate the signs of the burn, our treatments significantly improve the appearance of the affected area. Additionally, increased mobility means that you might be able to return to some activities that were limited before treatment.

What Should I Expect from My Treatment for Burns on the Hands and Wrists?

Burn scar treatment plans are highly individualized, depending on the amount, location, and severity of scarring and the level of discomfort experienced by the patient. The primary goal of treatment is to increase the mobility of the affected area. A second goal is to reduce the appearance of scarring. Your plastic surgeon uses a variety of techniques, including skin grafts from other areas of your body.

What Happens After My Treatment for Burns on the Hands and Wrists?

Post-surgical care aims to ensure that the area heals properly and that you are protected from infections and other injuries. Your plastic surgeon will likely recommend that you limit your activities. Common symptoms after surgery are tenderness, discomfort, and swelling. Your plastic surgeon may prescribe pain medications or recommend over-the-counter treatments. Some treatments for burns on the hands and wrists require physical therapy so that you can strengthen any muscles that may have atrophied after non-use.

What Does Treatment for Burns on the Hands and Wrists Cost?
