Facial Trauma

Fractures of the facial bones in children are primarily due to injury during childhood play. More complex injuries are typically sustained in motor vehicle accidents. Most children with minor facial fractures can be treated conservatively with either little or no surgical intervention. However, complicated fractures require three dimensional reconstruction of the bones of the face, otherwise in time, the soft tissues will shrink and mirror the underlying bony deformities.

We work closely with our pediatric radiology colleagues in making an accurate assessment of the severity of the fracture and the need for surgical reconstruction. When necessary, we have state-of-the-art techniques and equipment for gaining access to the underlying bones of the face. The incisions can be hidden or camouflaged in order to achieve accurate three dimensional repairs of a child’s face.
