FACIAL TRAUMA REPAIR
After illness, trauma, or surgery, the face can be impaired both in appearance and in function. Trauma of the skull and face (Craniomaxillofacial trauma) often results in complex bony and soft tissue injuries, which is why this type of injury requires prompt and precise diagnosis to ensure optimal treatment. The repair of facial trauma involves not only the reconstruction of the major facial structures, but also the reshaping of the delicate facial features to restore their original beauty.

At Muse Plastic Surgery, located in Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Wright A. Jones and Dr. Sabine Lovell utilize cutting-edge diagnostic and surgical techniques to treat craniomaxillofacial trauma. Our plastic surgeons employ their extensive expertise and meticulous surgical skills to carefully reconstruct the features of the face, with the goal of restoring the facial features to full functionality and pre-injury appearance.
FACIAL TRAUMA REPAIR PROCEDURE
Some of the most common post-traumatic facial defects include:
- Post-traumatic enopthalmus (recession of the eyeball within the orbit)
- Soft tissue atrophy
- Post-traumatic telecanthus (condition where there is increased distance between the medial canthi of the eyes, while the inter-pupillary distance remains within the normal range)
- Cranial defects
- Malar flattening (underdevelopment of the frontal region of the maxilla)
When performing facial trauma repair surgery, Dr. Jones and Dr. Lovell utilize high-resolution CT scanners and three-dimensional CT formatting to achieve enhanced preoperative bony analysis. This highly advanced equipment provides a life-like simulation of the facial injury, which enables them to create a uniquely customized, high quality treatment plan to address the patient’s post-traumatic facial deformities.
