Face is a core central feature of an individual. Facial burns are not uncommon and can be emergent conditions when associated with an inhalational component. Respiratory complications pose a challenge in initial resuscitation and ICU care. Inhalational burns increase mortality in all age groups. In our retrospective study we found that facial burns dominated in male gender, scald burns are the most common causes of facial burns followed by electric burns and superficial burns were common than deep burns.

Key words: facial burns, deep burns,conservative management, skin graft, aesthetic outcome
