Overview

Nasal fractures are particularly common and an injury that both Dr. Henstrom and Dr. Thompson are often called upon to manage. Ideally, facial fractures are treated within one to two weeks, but sometimes more involved surgical procedures are required when displaced bones have been allowed to heal.

Facial fractures and/or facial lacerations are commonly suffered during motor vehicle accidents, fights, domestic violence, athletic events, animal bites, etc. Facial trauma frequently involves the jawbone, cheekbone, eye socket, and/or brow and requires realignment of the bone segments and fixation for proper healing. Facial lacerations can cause scarring, facial nerve damage, salivary duct transection, tear duct injury, or even loss of a particular body part. It’s important to seek immediate medical care in any of these situations.

If surgery is necessary, a detailed plan and patient instructions will be established with one of our surgeons in the office prior to surgery and scheduled in an appropriate time for optimal repair.
