FACIAL TRAUMA

Traumatic injuries can occur unexpectedly at any time. When it comes to the face, these injuries can result in significant functional and cosmetic deficits. The result can have a serious physical and psychological impact on patients. Whether it is a soft tissue laceration, bony fracture or other type of injury, trust your face to a specialist dedicated to restoring your natural appearance.

Dr. Hall’s experience and dual training as a facial plastic surgeon and head and neck surgeon makes him expertly qualified to treat the following conditions:

Nasal Fractures
Orbital Fractures (fractures of the bones around the eye)
Mandibular Fractures (fractures of the jaw)
Midface or Zygomatic Fractures (fractures of the cheek bones)
Frontal Sinus Fractures (fractures of the forehead or brow)
Soft Tissue Lacerations
Intraoral Lacerations

The Procedure

Depending on the extent of your injury, surgery is either performed in the office under local anesthesia or at an outpatient surgery center under general anesthesia. At your consultation, we will review the treatment options for your facial laceration repair or fracture repair and customize a surgical plan accordingly. If you have undergone imaging (CT scan, X-ray, MRI, etc) prior to your consultation, please bring a disc with the images for review. Our goal with surgery is to restore your natural anatomy while minimizing any chance of scarring or residual deformity.
