Abstract

The role of the face in the daily interactions of a person through its expression of feelings, beauty, and identity is pertaining to life. Thus, severe facial trauma and disfigurement stemming from burns, tumor resection, and congenital and acquired malformation have deleterious effects on a person's life and expose a person to the stigmata of being different.
