Credentials You Can Trust
How Is Facial Trauma Surgery Performed?
Repairs in many facial reconstruction surgery cases involving fractured (broken) facial bones require moving the broken bones into place, such that they are placed into their natural position. The bones are then secured into place to ensure proper healing. Wounds (lacerations) are precisely closed to maximize wound healing while minimizing scar formation.
In some cases, lacerations may allow your surgeon access to the necessary structures during facial reconstruction surgery, making new incisions unnecessary.
Note that procedures available for reconstruction at Dilworth Facial Plastic Surgery are for lacerations, broken facial bones, and similar trauma, not injuries from burns.
Facial Care Beyond Facial Reconstruction Surgery
In addition to facial reconstructive surgery, Dr. Garcia and Dr. Surowitz perform a variety of procedures designed to help their patients heal with maximum cosmetic results.
- Skin cancer reconstructive surgery involves closing incisions made during Mohs surgery for aesthetic benefit and the preservation of natural function.
- Scar revision surgery is devoted to removing, camouflaging, or otherwise lessening the prominence of telltale signs of injury or surgery.
Dr. Garcia and Dr. Surowitz will consult with each patient to determine the most optimal treatment plan, for your unique circumstances.
