Facial Trauma Repair
Facial trauma can be one of the most emotionally devastating events our patients can experience. It often happens so suddenly with no time for you or your loved ones to mentally prepare for the cosmetic and/or functional impact these injuries can have on your life.
Obviously most patients just want to get back to the way they looked before, and we will do all in our power to get you as close as we can to that. These injuries can impact the patient’s ability to breathe, chew, swallow, and speak. They can affect vision, movement and sensation of the muscles, nerves, and bones of the face. They can affect the sense of smell, hearing, and balance. Sometimes the complete restoration of function to pre-injury levels is not possible, and aesthetic perfection is not attainable. Close follow up with your surgeon will optimize your results, and often a series of surgeries or smaller touchup procedures will be required.
