Why are Facial Trauma Treatments needed?
When you are the victim of facial trauma, this can affect not only the look of your face, but the way that you are able to function.

Who is a candidate for Facial Trauma Treatments?
We begin the treatment process with a consultation. This consultation gives us an idea of the problem you’re facing and how to go about repairing it. In some cases, you may need multiple surgeries in order to correct the injury. Some patients have simple injuries that can be repaired quickly and easily.
What happens during Facial Trauma Treatments?
The consultation appointment allows us to discuss your options as well as sedatives you can choose. We then use a general anesthetic to put you to sleep during the surgery. We will repair and treat the area that has been injured. For soft tissue injuries, this may mean a skin grafting as well as sutures. For bone injuries, plates and screws are often used to keep the bone in place. Special injuries are treated as well, as this often need more complex surgery to repair. You will be instructed to come back in regularly to ensure the surgery was a success while your body is healing.
