Face & Jaws Fractures

What is Restoring Function and Aesthetics?

Restoring function and aesthetics after face and jaw fractures involves prompt diagnosis and surgical treatment. These fractures can cause functional limitations and visible deformities, affecting both facial aesthetics and daily life activities such as eating, speaking, or breathing.

What happens during Restoring Function and Aesthetics surgery?

The specific surgical approach depends on the location and severity of the fracture, and the individual’s needs. Common surgical techniques include Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF) and Closed Reduction. ORIF involves making incisions near the fracture site, repositioning the bones, and securing them with surgical hardware. Closed Reduction manipulates fractured bones back into alignment without incisions.

Going home after Restoring Function and Aesthetics surgery

After surgery, recovery and healing are necessary, with length and requirements varying depending on the fracture and surgical technique used. You’ll be provided specific guidelines for oral hygiene, diet modifications, and physical activity restrictions. Regular follow-up visits will monitor progress, address concerns, and guide rehabilitation efforts.

Specific complications following Restoring Function and Aesthetics surgery

While generally safe and effective, potential risks of these surgeries include infection, bleeding, nerve damage, changes in sensation, scarring, and unsatisfactory cosmetic outcomes. Choosing an experienced surgeon specializing in facial and jaw fracture repairs is key to minimizing these risks.
