Healing the Damage Caused by Facial Fractures

Facial fractures and/or facial lacerations often result from motor vehicle accidents, fights, domestic violence, injuries from sports, and animal bites.

Traumatic facial fractures frequently involve the jawbone, cheekbone, the eye socket, or the brow and require realignment of the bone segments and fixation with special plates and screws for proper healing. Traumatic facial lacerations can cause scarring, facial nerve damage, salivary duct transection, tear duct injury, or even loss of a body part (such as ear avulsion). Dr. Morrow is highly skilled in the facial plastic surgery techniques needed to help reconstruct facial fractures and repair the damage endured from severe facial lacerations.
