Burn injuries can cause deep tissue damage that can go deeper than a superficial scar. Some severe burn injuries require extensive facial reconstruction. If the tissue, cartilage or muscle under the skin is damaged, the victim may need facial reconstructive surgery to reshape or reform the face or certain features. In addition, the skin may be completely removed, requiring facial skin grafts to repair the burn injury.
