Abstract

Purpose of review: The aim of this study was to review and discuss recent literature regarding perioperative use of antibiotics in the context of facial plastic surgery. Recent findings: Despite research efforts, there continues to be insufficient evidence in support of, or against, the use of antimicrobial prophylaxis. Summary: Current available evidence regarding antibiotic use in facial plastic surgery procedures fails to demonstrate routine benefit. Therefore, the advantages accompanying administration of preoperative antibiotics should be weighed against any potential complications on a case-by-case basis. Future large-scale prospective studies will be beneficial in developing standardized criteria directing appropriate antibiotic use.
