Automobile accidents, accidental falls, sports injuries, cancer surgery, birth disfigurements, and work related injuries can cause damage to the soft tissue and bone structure of your face, head, and neck. Such disfigurements take an emotional as well as a physical toll on the individual.
Fortunately, many of the effects of these injuries can be improved with Facial Reconstruction Surgery.
WHAT IS FACIAL TRAUMA RECONSTRUCTION?
Specific methods of facial reconstruction depend largely on the injury and the tissue and bone that needs to be reconstructed.
Many injuries only involve the skin and soft tissues, and may be corrected using scar revision or scar camouflage techniques.
More complex trauma may involve boney (hard tissues) or a combination of bony and soft tissue injuries. These facial reconstructions may require more in depth surgical techniques or may even be addressed using fillers or fat grafts.
