Facial trauma can have far-reaching, dramatic effects on a patient’s life, and while the emotional and psychological
aspects of healing may take some time, physical repair can begin right away, greatly improving both self-esteem and quality of life.
Facial trauma occurs for many reasons, the most common ones being a fall or accident, a sports injury, or an altercation.
Damages are categorized as either soft tissue trauma to the skin or gums; bone fractures; or trauma to the eyes or facial nerves.
Because the face is one of the most visible and vulnerable areas of the body, surgery must be as inconspicuous as
possible, while achieving a high degree of functionality and aesthetic attractiveness. The ideal doctor has undergone rigorous training, fellowships
and residencies in reconstructive surgery, has the eye of a consummate artist, and possesses the refinement of character to connect compassionately
with those who have undergone significant physical trauma.

feel at ease going forward. In addition, he has assembled a team of kind, considerate and knowledgeable nurses and assistants, all of whom are eager
