Facial Fracture Repair

Facial Fracture Repair for Patients in the Bay Area, including San Francisco, San Jose and Palo Alto

If you have experienced an injury such as a facial fracture, facial laceration or traumatic injury that resulted in distortion or disfigurement of your features, it is important to consult surgeons experienced in reconstruction to restore your appearance. Our unique partnership practice in facial plastic surgery can provide you with aesthetic corrective surgery to help you look your best and improve your self-image. We offer surgical options for patients who have had the following injuries or concerns:

  • Nasal fractures
  • Fractures of the bones around the eyes (orbital fractures)
  • Disfigured or deformed facial bones or other tissues
  • Fractures of the jaw (mandibular fractures)
  • Fractures of the cheekbone (midface and zygomatic arch fractures)
  • Fractures to the forehead (frontal sinus fractures)

Technique

How is this surgery performed?

We are able to perform a number of surgical procedures and techniques designed to address your facial trauma including facial fracture repair and facial laceration repair. These types of aesthetic reconstructions are not a "one size fits all." We will discuss the options for repair with you, and work with you to formulate a customized surgical plan before moving forward.

The major goals of facial trauma surgery are to repair broken facial bones, restore normal function to critical parts of the face and close facial lacerations. Our goal is to take care of these traumatic injuries using plastic surgical techniques and minimize any chance of scarring or deformity.

Post-Operative Recovery Process

There are times when multiple procedures are necessary to achieve optimal facial reconstruction. These procedures may be staged months apart depending on the issue. Therefore, there are instances when facial trauma treatment can take a year or more in total.

The length of your recovery period and the specific aftercare you require following surgery will depend very much on the type of facial trauma you experienced and the facial plastic surgery and reconstructive techniques used to correct the trauma.

We serve patients who have experienced facial trauma in Palo Alto and San Jose as well as the greater San Francisco Bay Area. We are credentialed at El Camino Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital. Our core objective is to provide a safe, comfortable surgical experience that aspires to restore your appearance and aims to produce natural results. Always feel free to call the clinic or make an appointment online. We focus exclusively on cosmetic and reconstructive enhancement of the face and neck and are uniquely qualified to handle your case.
