Even though incisional or excisional release and skin autografting (with or without use of dermal templates) are still the main techniques used in burn reconstruction, flaps should be used when possible (remember that Z-plasty and its modifications are transposition flaps). The burn reconstruction plan needs to be tailored to the individual patient and the patient's chief complaint, since certain anatomical areas are better suited to some techniques than others.
