Doctor

A:   Reconstructive surgery is often a lengthy process. Since you gave had tissue expansion surgery you are half way there. When enough skin has grown the expander will be removed, the burnt skin excised and the normal skin put in its place. 45% burns is a very large area and it may take several of these operations to give you a satisfactory outcome. I understand that it has been a long time but please try to be patient.
