Severe burns can impact skin, fat, muscle and bone, requiring extensive medical care for recovery. When burns occur on the face, the damage to the individual’s appearance can be life altering. While medical treatment can heal the burn, it does not restore the aesthetics of the face. Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastic in NYC is a skilled facial reconstructive plastic surgeon who helps facial burn victims restore beauty to their face.

Burns cause more than just scarring of the skin. Deep facial burns remove fat, muscle and tissue, changing the shape of the face and facial features. While surface burn scars can be faded with cosmetic treatments such as laser therapy, deeper damage from burn injuries may require reconstructive surgery.

Skin Grafting and Tissue Reconstruction

When tissue and skin is lost from a facial burn injury, it may require replacing the lost tissue to restore the facial appearance. At our facial plastics surgery clinic, Dr. Linkov uses advanced surgical techniques to reconstruct facial features that have been disfigured by burn injuries. This may include use of cartilage, muscle or skin grafting to restore the lost tissue and reform the face. His skills as both a surgeon and facial artist can create natural, beautiful results to give burn victims back confidence in their appearance.

Burn injuries are one of the most challenging types of trauma to the face. It requires skill and expertise to effectively restore aesthetics to the face after a severe burn. Plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Linkov, MD has extensive experience in facial reconstruction, giving those with facial burn injuries a chance to improve their appearance and move on with their life.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.

Wow is all I can say! Fantastic doctor that gives you an extremely pleasant, professional, and realistic experience. Would highly recommend and give 6 stars if I could.
