The facial features are delicate and easily damaged by trauma. Whether it is impact from playing sports or trauma from a motor vehicle accident, damage to the facial features can be devastating to the victim. Facial fractures, torn tissue, burns and other injuries can impact the function and appearance of the facial features. At pēkomd cosmetic and reconstructive surgery center, we offer facial trauma plastic surgery at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
There are over 20 bones in the skull and facial region, with dozens of muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves that allow function. When trauma like car accidents, fires, violence or sports injuries occur to the face, the structural elements can be damaged, impacting normal function. Fractures, nerve damage, torn muscles and more may need repair to restore function, and reconstructive surgery may be needed to recreate the natural appearance of the face.
Facial trauma reconstructive surgery can involve very complex procedures. Bones, nerves and soft tissue could need repair or replacement. Cartilage, fat, bone and skin grafting may be needed to rebuild the facial structures, followed by cosmetic reshaping to reform the features as close as possible to the previous appearance. This can require multiple surgeries, especially for extreme facial trauma.
