Posted on 9/25/2023 by San Tan Oral Surgery
What Is the Surgical Approach to Facial Trauma?Within the realm of medical terms, the phrase' facial trauma' represents an array of potential injuries. Some of the injuries that could occur are fractures within facial bones, damages sustained due to accidents, or physical harm caused by external sources resulting in soft tissue and lacerations (cuts).

Facial trauma may occur for a variety of reasons, such as accidents, sports injuries, physical abuse, etc. Addressing these injuries on time is essential to minimize further complications while taking effective measures during recovery is crucial to obtain optimal results afterward. Surgeons mainly use surgical intervention for treating severe cases of facial trauma.

Diagnosis and Evaluation:

To develop custom-tailored treatment plans specific to individual patients' needs, there must be a complete diagnosis following a comprehensive examination and evaluation of reports alongside imaging studies (like X-rays or CT scans). Depending on the extent, severity levels require specialist consultations when necessary after a complete review.

Reconstructive Procedures:

The surgeon will determine which reconstructive procedure is needed for addressing facial trauma, which could involve repairing fractured bones and damaged soft tissues or correcting functional abnormalities with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) methods. Soft tissue reconstruction, nerve repair, or grafting, respectively. For anyone experiencing facial injuries, seeking prompt medical attention is critical for appropriate treatment.

Aesthetic Considerations:

The surgical treatment for facial trauma takes into account cosmetic factors in addition to restoring function. The surgeon's goal is to attempt appealing cosmetic results alongside functional restoration. In order to reduce scarring, restore face symmetry, and improve the patient's overall appearance, meticulous planning and execution of surgery are crucial.

Achieving functional restorations and aesthetic outcomes with minimal scarring while enhancing symmetry for cases that affect people cosmetically are essential aims for our experienced team of surgeons. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step toward recovery.
