The purpose of this study was to evaluate the refining plastic surgery techniques for repairing facial surface injury. For this purpose, 82 patients with facial surface injury were recruited in the study. All wounds were repaired by refining plastic surgery techniques. The wounds were processed by fine wound excision and plastic surgery repair technique. The deep tissue fracture and dislocation were sutured and reduced using 8-0 absorbable suture and the skin wounds were sutured using 8-0 cosmetic suture. The facial injuries showed good rates of healing with fine debridement and fine recovering. The minimum scarring was observed and good cosmetic effect was achieved. We conclude that refining plastic surgery techniques including fine debridement and fine recovering are ideal for the reconstruction of facial injuries.
