BACKGROUND Mainstay of post-burn reconstruction is release and split skin grafting. Pedicle flaps are cumbersome to the patient, require multiple procedures and hospitalization. Free flaps are technically demanding and facilities are not universally available. Here we evaluated the local perforator flaps for post-burn reconstruction. METHODS We have used sixteen perforator propellar flaps for post-burn reconstruction for various areas of body. RESULTS All flaps did well without any recontracture and need of splintage. CONCLUSION Local perforator flaps should be considered as one of the primary treatment options for post burn reconstruction.
