Possibly worse still is the emotional impact that is caused because the sufferer feels that people will be looking at him or her and thinking that he or she are not “fit” human beings. This can be terribly hard to bear.

The First Priority Is Dealing With Life-Threatening Injuries
The first priority in dealing with any facial trauma issue is to deal with life-threatening injuries as soon as possible. Every case of facial trauma is different and facial reconstruction will depend upon the extent of the injuries, which can be to the brain, airways, and other vital structures. This is why you need one of the top-rated jaw surgeons in California.
Such surgery can take several hours because the aim is always to repair as much of the damage as possible in a single operation. However, sometimes this is not possible, and it may take more than one, depending upon the state of the damage.
The second priority in dealing with facial trauma is to repair the look and appearance of the person and restore him or her to as near their original appearance as is possible. This, too, can take more than one operation, and in some cases may need several.
Of course, not all facial surgery is repair work after facial trauma. Some people need facial surgery for cosmetic reasons such as having a nose of the “wrong” shape and simply needing to get it altered. Other surgeries may involve dealing with things such as an underbite or overbite which are a matter of genetics.
