Abstract

The face is a unique and vitally important structure in humans and plays an irreplaceable role in human life. The face contains the organs of smell, sight, hearing and taste. It is involved in important physiological functions such as vision, respiration, feeding, and hearing but is also vital in communication, transmitting expressions and emotions, feelings and signifying individual identity. It is a complex structure of skin, muscle, fat, vessels, nerves draped around the facial skeleton. A facial burn can vary from being relatively minor to a severely debilitating and disfiguring injury.
