With the revolution in the burn care and development of specialized burns centers, survival rate of the burn patients has increased significantly. Many patients not receiving proper post burn care develop unacceptable deformities. In this article, we have presented study of 29 patients with post burn facial deformities conducted over a period of one year, including facial hypertrophic scars, deformities of ears, eyelids, nasal defects, alopecia treated with various modalities including excision & primary suturing or staged excision and suturing, excision and suturing or coverage with local or distant flap, ear reconstruction; staged, and single stage with autogenous rib cartilage framework. The ultimate aim of managing facial deformities is to reconstruct and reposition the various parts of face in near normal anatomical position and to prevent any damage to vital structures.
