ABSTRACTBackground: Reconstructive surgery of the different parts of the face is a challenge for the surgeons who perform it. Despite its current rise, studies of series of patients treated by these procedures are few.
Objective: to characterize the face repair surgery in patients seen in a repair surgery consulting room.
Methods: descriptive study, of a series of cases, at the Dr. Gustavo Aldereguía Lima Hospital, in Cienfuegos. Patients who received reconstructive surgery of different facial structures, in the period January 2015 to December 2019 (N = 21) attended in the repair surgery consultation were studied. For this series, age, sex, skin color, diagnosis, cause, type of anesthesia and surgical technique were analyzed.
Results: men and white skin color predominated. The auricle was the most frequently affected structure; consequently, the most commonly used techniques were the Filatov tube and Dieffenbach retroauricular, combined. Local anesthesia was used in almost all cases. The largest age group was 18-35 years (13 patients), with more than 50% of the total. Patients aged 60 and over were affected by lesions derived from carcinomas.
Conclusion: The series presented shows that reconstructive surgery can solve different health and aesthetic situations, sometimes both in the same patient, with techniques of minimal surgical risk, a short time and favorable results.
