FACIAL INJURY


FACIAL INJURY

Overview
alt
Facial injury is a common condition. In majority of cases only the skin is involved, while other more severe cases involve the soft tissue and facial bones as well. There are a number of delicate structures such as the eyelid, nose, lips and ears that are located in relatively the face. Repair of these delicate structures demands attention to details in order to achieve good results. In more severe injuries, there may be fracture of facial bones. In these cases reduction and fixation of the fracture are required as well. Sometimes facial injury may be associated with other more severe injuries such as head injury, chest injury and abdominal injury and limb fractures. In such cases collaboration with other doctors is important and priority is given to treat the more life-threatening injury first.

Some patient may present with a previous facial injury with residual problems such as scarring, tissue distortion and functional disturbance. These cases would require proper assessment and treatment with scar revision or tissue rearrangement.

Management
alt
Management of facial injury is highly individual as it depends on the condition of the patient, severity of the injury and the location of the injury. Minor cases can be managed in the clinic setting.  For more severe cases  it is best to manage the patient in the hospital where the patient can be stabilized and proper investigations carried out before the surgery. In both scenarios, proper assessment is required to manage effectively each individual case.
