Dr. Keith Rose offers extensive experience in burn scar revision. Through his fellowship in burn procedures at the Shriners Hospital for Children in Galveston and as part of private practice, he has completed hundreds of burn reconstructive surgeries, helping patients improve function and aesthetics.
As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Rose focuses on both the practical and cosmetic aspects of burn scar revision for Corpus Christi patients. Whether you are focused on a scar’s appearance alone, or the scar is causing discomfort, or preventing full range of movement, Dr. Rose can design a procedure around your concerns.
A Range of Solutions. An Attention to Detail.
Patients vary in their needs. The size of the scar, type of burn, and state of healing all may affect the approach a surgeon recommends.
Dr. Rose brings an in-depth understanding of multiple surgical techniques to burn scar revision procedures, including tissue expanders, excision, and pedicle flaps. His extensive knowledge—combined with training and practice in aesthetic surgeries—helps achieve his patients’ unique goals.
Just as importantly, Dr. Rose spends significant time in surgery focusing on subtle features that make a big difference in the outcome. Creating anatomically natural results helps patients heal properly and achieve a better sense of self after recovery.
Planning Your Burn Scar Revision
Visit our Corpus Christi practice for an initial consultation. Dr. Rose will examine the area of the scar and talk with you about what you want to accomplish. He will also spend time learning about your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for surgery.
The initial consultation is a good time for you to ask questions as well. Dr. Rose gives you the opportunity to find out about:
- The type of results burn scar revision might produce.
- The day-of process for your procedure.
- Recovery guidelines following surgery.
One of Dr. Rose’s priorities is offering patients all of the information that they need to have confidence in their care. He and his medical staff make themselves available to answer questions throughout the process.
