Although, highly specialized burn centers have significantly reduced mortality rates following extensive total body surface area burns, survivors are often left with grotesque facial disfigurement. Hypertrophic scars and tissue defects are the most common cause of functional and aesthetic problems in the head and neck region. Various options from split skin grafts, full thickness grafts, local and pedicled flaps and free flaps are available for correction of these deformities. Micro vascular free flaps have turned out as a promising answer for many difficult conditions, both in acute stages as well as in late elective procedures, for aesthetic reconstruction of face. Over a period of fifteen months from Jan 2006 to April 2007, six free flaps were done in patients of post burn facial deformities, of which three were lateral arm flaps and three scapular flaps.
