There are a plethora reasons someone may seek to undergo plastic surgery. While it is common to assume that cosmetic procedures are reserved for those who seek to boost their confidence and fight signs of aging, there are many who seek these procedures to reverse the severe and life changing effects of traumatic injuries.
Millions of cases of facial trauma occur in the United States every year, resulting in damage to the face and jaw bones. These facial injuries can result in serious changes to every/day life, including the obstruction of airways, nasal cavity damage, sinus damage, and more.
When a patient arrives to the emergency room with facial trauma, the main goal of the experienced physicians is to ensure that the necessary treatment is given as swiftly and carefully as possible. This usually involves taking the steps to make sure that the patient is breathing, stabilized, and safe.
Once the patient has returned home and healed, however, it can be difficult to get used to the way their face has changed as a result of the injury. While the necessary procedure has been done to ensure that their life has been maintained, there is often a lot of emotional and physical pain that follows suit.
At some point, it may be time to consider reconstructive and cosmetic surgery for these types of injuries. Post-traumatic reconstruction and rehabilitation is something that appeals to many who have gone through the hardships of managing facial trauma and the effects thereof.
Every injury is different. As with many procedures, the course of treatment can vary based on many variables. For example, considerations that must be taken into account include the amount of time that has passed since the injury as well as the type of treatment administered immediately following the injury.
