Facial Trauma Plastic Surgery
Any impact to the face can cause serious damage to the function and appearance of the facial features. Whether it is a vehicle accident, sports injury or violent encounter, facial trauma can leave lasting changes to the face. Repairing facial damage while restoring the natural aesthetics requires expertise that is beyond the scope of a general surgeon. At Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Stefan Shuaib offers facial trauma plastic surgery at our clinic in Irving, TX.
There are 14 facial bones along with muscles, tendons, cartilage, nerves and other tissues that can be damaged from facial trauma. The smaller bones of the face support facial tissue for proper facial movement and appearance, which can be fractured with facial injuries. When any tissues are damaged, it can affect nerves and natural function, as well as change the facial shape. Injuries that may need repair and reconstruction after facial trauma include:
- Facial fractures
- Nerve damage
- Lacerations and burns
- Damaged cartilage
- Tissue and skin loss
Many patients with facial trauma will need multiple injuries repaired, followed by aesthetic reconstruction to restore the facial appearance.
