Any accident that causes damage to the face can be traumatic. Not only is it painful, but it can also impact important senses and functions. Even when the pain of the injury is gone, there may be a lasting impact to the appearance of the face. At City Facial Plastics, we have an experienced facial reconstructive surgeon who restores facial function and aesthetics for victims of facial trauma.
Facial injuries may include damage to the skin, facial features, mouth and jaw. These range from facial cuts and lacerations to more serious problems, such as broken teeth and facial bones. Bone fractures can involve the lower or upper jaw, palate, cheekbones and eye sockets. These injuries often occur during automobile accidents, sports or recreational activities, assaults, work-related tasks, projects around the house or accidental falls.
Many patients with facial injuries are first seen in the emergency room. They are then referred to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or a plastic surgeon with intricate knowledge of the face for further treatment.
Restoring Facial Function and Form
A fractured jaw, broken nose or facial laceration may impact your appearance and facial function for life, if not repaired. Depending on the extent of the facial trauma, this can include repositioning bones, tissue repair and skin grafts. Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics has extensive skills in facial reconstructive surgery to restore function and aesthetics. While not all facial trauma can be completely undone, his talent will help restore the features as closely as possible to their original appearance.
If you have suffered a serious facial injury that has caused permanent damage to your face, contact us at City Facial Plastics. We will schedule a consultation appointment for you with Dr. Linkov to discuss your options for facial reconstruction.
