The fine bones that surround and protect the eyes are vital to your sight and appearance. When the thin orbital bones are fractured from trauma, your eyesight may be affected and the form of your face may be changed. Orbital fractures require precise and meticulous reconstructive surgery. This procedure is best performed by an experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. If you have suffered damage to your orbital bones, you can trust Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics in NYC for repair.
The orbital bones surround the eye in a circular form. When a blunt force impacts the face during an accident, these delicate bones can be fractured. In many cases, fractures to the orbital bones heal without surgical intervention. However, there are instances where they may be crushed or pose a risk to the eyes, requiring reconstructive surgery to repair. Dr. Linkov has extensive experience in facial reconstruction surgery, using the most advanced techniques and methods to restore form and function to the facial features.
Do I Need Eye Socket Repair Surgery?
If a fracture of the orbital bones occurs, it is most likely to affect the bottom of the eye socket. Small hairline fractures can heal on their own, but more extensive breaks may require facial surgery. Since these bones enclose the eye, it is vital to have a surgeon that understands the intricacies of oculoplastic surgery. Dr. Linkov is meticulous in his repairs of orbital fractures to protect the eye from damage, while ensuring aesthetic results for the facial structure.
