Surgical Treatment for Extensive Postburn Facial Deformity Using Tube Flap and Cervicofacial Flap.

The current concept of facial unit reconstruction has evolved from simple coverage of defects to the reconstruction of the 3-dimensional structure and delicate features. The reshaping of the middle third of the face, including the nose and cheek, remains a challenge for plastic surgeons due to its complex structure and the dynamic relationship between each part. In this article, the authors describe a clinical report of extensive facial burns with skin lesions in the middle third of the face. The 30-year-old female patient sustained burns throughout the full thickness of the skin burns on the entire nose and left cheek with hypertrophic scar. The authors performed an expanded cervical-facial flap and tube flap of the upper extremity to reconstruct the entire nasal and cheek region. The patient underwent 8 stages of the operation successively resulting in a satisfactory level of appearance and function.
