Patients may experience facial trauma through motor vehicle collisions, falls, sports accidents, etc. When this occurs, they may need a variety of procedures to address the injury. These may be superficial, such as a skin laceration, or more invasive, such as a fracture of a facial bone. Overall, facial trauma procedures aim to restore the function and appearance of the face and improve the patient's quality of life.
A lip laceration is a disruption or tear in the tissue of the lip. Management may include wound cleansing, suture placement, and the prescription of antibiotics to prevent infection. Plastic surgeons are often asked to perform these procedures due to the aesthetic nature and importance of the lips.
Frontal Sinus Fracture
The frontal sinus is an air-filled cavity located within the frontal bone of the skull, which serves as a protective barrier for the brain. A fracture in this bone may require surgical intervention. In the cases that do require surgery, plastic surgeons perform these cases to reconstruct the form and aesthetics of the forehead. Some of these cases are severe enough to require a neurosurgeon to participate, as well.
