It can be especially traumatizing when a person experiences any physical changes that significantly alter the natural appearance of his or her face. Facial trauma may involve soft tissue injuries such as burns, lacerations, and bruises or affect the skeletal structures through fractures of the facial and nasal bones. In all these cases, surgical intervention may be necessary.
When coming to see Dr. Friedman for facial trauma, he must first determine if there is any internal damage to the head and neck structures. These will include examinations of the ear, mouth, neck, brain, and nose. On identification of any issues, Dr. Friedman will proceed to work at restoring your pre-trauma state, both in form and function.
Follow-up treatments and other steps to take depend on the procedures being carried out. If the procedure involves invasive surgery, then the steps taken will differ from those taken from less invasive treatments. In either case, you will need to follow Dr. Friedman’s instructions meticulously to ensure proper healing and recovery.
