Facial Trauma

Description

Facial trauma encompasses the range of injuries from facial laceration to more serious injury which involves fractured facial bones. In children and young adults, sports injuries and accidents are responsible for most facial trauma. In adults, motor vehicle collisions are more common.

You may request that a facial plastic surgeon evaluate the injury to make recommendations or to repair any facial lacerations. A given urgent care center or hospital emergency department may or may not have a facial specialist available. If you prefer to see a facial plastic surgeon, ask the doctor at the facility how that may be accomplished.

Seeking evaluation and recommendations from a facial plastic surgeon soon after injury may help to ensure that an injury is treated optimally and to minimize the risk of developing persistent facial deformity.

In cases of severe injury or for fractures requiring repair, surgery may be indicated to help to restore facial structure and to minimize facial deformity.
