Answers to Your Facial Reconstruction Questions

Craniomaxillofacial trauma, or trauma of the face and skull, requires prompt and accurate diagnosis to ensure proper treatment, mainly due to trauma often resulting in complex bony and soft tissue injuries. At UC Health Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, our physicians approach treating trauma of the face and skull with leading-edge diagnostic and surgical techniques.

Using high-resolution CT scanners and 3D CT formatting, the surgeons can create a life-like simulation of fractures from the trauma to obtain the best possible results.

In spite of accurate diagnosis and injury analysis, some patients develop long-term functional or cosmetic deformities that require additional intervention. Common post-traumatic facial deformities include:

  • Soft tissue atrophy. A breakdown of soft tissue. 

  • Post-traumatic enophthalmos. Eyeball set back in orbit.

  • Post-traumatic telecanthus. Increased distance between eyelids.

  • Malar flattening. Decreased profile of the cheekbones.

  • Cranial defects.

It may take four to six weeks for the wound to heal completely depending on the size of the area.
