Facial Trauma Plastic Surgeon
The importance of repairing facial trauma cannot be over emphasized. Your face contains most of the distinguishable qualities that make you recognizable by others. Appearance has a tremendous impact on our confidence and self-esteem. Four of the five senses are primarily housed in the head and face. Add to these the basic functions of eating, drinking, blinking your eyes and making simple facial expressions. When you or a loved one suffers facial trauma, it is vital that every effort is made to make repairs to both the functional aspects and aesthetic features.
Trauma can come in many different forms, including workplace accidents, auto accidents, sports accidents, slip and fall accidents, hunting accidents, cancer, growths or defects and many other unexpected sources. The facial bones, skin, muscles, ligaments and other tissues can be damaged in various ways. This is as well as the ears, eyes, lips and nose, necessitating many complicated and multifaceted repairs.
