Latest blog post from our client, Plastic Surgery Institute of Miami about This Is What You Need To Know About Lipomas

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a lipoma is a slow-growing, fatty lump between the skin and the underlying muscle. It is a common condition with about 200,000 new cases per year in the United States. You may suspect the growth is a lipoma if it feels “doughy,” non-tender, and moves with slight finger pressure.

Lipomas are more common in middle age and it is possible to have more than one lipoma. Though they are harmless, the appearance may make you self-conscious.

In such cases, speaking with a plastic surgery specialist will be beneficial. Dr. Thomas J. Zaydon is an expert plastic surgeon in Miami who specializes in scars and reconstructive surgery due to injury and illness, including lipomas.

Latest update from our client, Dr. Thomas J. Zaydon Jr. about Will Workers’ Compensation Cover Plastic Surgery Costs?

Some plastic surgery procedures are not solely cosmetic in nature. There are plastic surgeries necessary for patients to function normally following an accident at work. But are these procedures covered by workers’ compensation?

It’s no secret that plastic surgery may cost thousands of dollars. But if you need this because it could help you recover your normal functions after an injury at work, then you might want to consider using your worker’s compensation benefit to pay for a reparative and reconstructive procedure.

The face is absolutely vital to human appearance and function. It allows us to differentiate one person from another, and to express emotions and thoughts. The face is also anatomically complex; it includes skin, muscles responsible for both gross motor function and subtle facial expression, a complex bony structure, and vital sensory organs.

Injuries to the face may compromise the patient’s ability to breathe, see, speak, hear, eat, interact with others and may involve damage to the central nervous system.

Latest update from our client, Dr. Thomas J. Zaydon Jr. about Plastic Surgery Evaluations Are Still Possible Through Telemedicine: Here's How It Works

Since the start of this pandemic, the government has imposed measures to limit the spread of the infection. The World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have been advocating for the strict compliance of physical distancing, hand washing, and disinfection. Since these measures are being observed even in hospitals and clinics, consultations have been limited as well.

 

Fortunately, technology has enabled our plastic surgeon, Dr. Zaydon, to continue serving patients using telemedicine. Telemedicine is an alternative to in-person consultations between the patient and the doctor.

Latest update from our client, Dr. Thomas J. Zaydon Jr. about Can a Third Degree Burn Heal on Its Own?

A third-degree burn is also called a “full-thickness burn.” It involves at least two full layers of the skin, the epidermis and the dermis. Some fat, nerve, muscle, and bone damage are also observed in many patients. The burned tissue may look white or yellow, sometimes brown or black.

According to experts, third-degree burns have diminished pain or do not hurt at all. This is because the burn has destroyed the nerve endings on the skin. Because the damage is bad, plastic surgery for 3rd degree burns is a necessity to repair the burned skin to some extent.

News just in from our client, Dr. Thomas J Zaydon Jr. about 4 Reasons Why Facial Burns are Dangerous

Burn injuries may vary from the most minor to severe and debilitating. These are classified based on the depth and the scale of the skin damage. A facial burn, however, is usually considered severe because of the risk of complications, especially in the respiratory system.

According to Materia Socio Medica, patients with facial burns are immediately checked for scorched nose hairs that may compromise the airways and cause respiratory problems. Aside from this complication, here are other reasons why facial burns are dangerous.

1. A facial burn may cause the voice to change.

A burn victim’s voice may change following a facial burn injury because the victim might have inhaled substances that caused harm or affected the soft tissues in the respiratory system. Experts call these laryngeal burns, which occur in 30 percent of burn victims. Unfortunately, this may cause a long-term voice disorder that may require extensive treatment.

Latest update from our client, Dr. Thomas J. Zaydon Jr. about How Plastic Surgery can Help Hand Burn Patients

A small burn on the skin can often leave scars that take longer to heal and restore. But imagine someone whose hands have been severely deformed and disfigured after a tragic burn accident or injury and you’ll understand why plastic surgery of burned skin is a necessary procedure for these burn patients.

According to the American Burn Association, 96.8 percent of burn patients actually survive their harrowing ordeal. However, many of these patients will have to live with life-long scarring, chronic pain and discomfort because of their acquired and unwanted deformity.

Living With Hand Burn Deformities

According to Dr. Zaydon, a burn specialist doctor Miami, the hands are most susceptible to contracture deformity after a burn incident. This refers to a chronic loss of mobility, function, and structure since a contracture may affect the skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints.

Check out our client, Dr. Thomas J. Zaydon Jr. about Early treatment of facial injuries. Why choosing the right plastic surgeon matters?

Humans attribute a lot of value to our faces because the face is associated with a great deal of psychological and sociological meaning. From the recognition of a friend or an enemy to the expressions of joy and pain, one’s mind has a huge appreciation for the human face. That is the reason why if a person’s face is injured or disfigured, it elicits a very strong emotional response.

Manual workers, in their everyday life, are potential candidates for trauma to the face and a significant number of facial injuries result from industrial trauma. Since no set program can cover the treatment of such injuries, emphasis should be placed on the simplest and most direct method which will provide the best outcome and the earliest return to work.
