Facial Trauma Plastic Surgery
Facial trauma occurs mostly as a result of interpersonal violence, road accidents, sporting injuries or rarely, industrial accidents. Either the bones or soft tissues can be involved. The key to successful treatment of these injuries is factoring in both functional and cosmetic components to the injury. The surgeon treating you should have experience and training in managing all types of facial injuries and should have other specialists such as ophthalmologists, ENT surgeons, dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists, neurosurgeons, and psychologists that are willing to be involved when the situation dictates.
Treatment planning to ensure the injuries are managed properly is paramount. At Sandhurst Plastic Surgery, our surgeons use cutting edge technology to meticulously plan your treatment. A special planning meeting may be required prior with all the surgeons present to ensure everything is planned properly. At this session the focus is on the doctors, not the patient, but all patients who have gone through this process have all found it to be one of the best ways to relieve any anxiety they may have, when the professionalism and skill of their doctors is on show.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
