When facial trauma occurs around your eyes, it can impact the eye socket, brow bone, or other delicate areas. Facial trauma may impact your ability to open and close your eyes, create double vision, alter your features, or create swelling or bruising that can impact your vision. It can be caused by injury, blunt force, wounds, or other types of crashes or accidents. In order to correct facial trauma, surgery is used to reconstruct the areas of your face that were damaged and restore their natural functions. 

Why Choose Dr. Vargason?

When choosing a surgeon to perform reconstructive surgery, it is vital to understand their background. Cosmetic surgeons can perform surgeries to enhance the appearance, while plastic surgeons can perform surgeries that both enhance the appearance and improve function. Dr. Vargason is a highly-trained oculofacial plastic surgeon. This means that she can perform reconstruction surgeries that focus on the areas around the eyes. She believes in providing each patient with the dedicated attention they deserve, ensuring they leave her office with precise, natural-looking results.

Benefits of Facial Trauma Surgery 

There are two primary benefits of facial trauma surgery. These are restoring your natural appearance and rehabilitating any functions that were lost due to the trauma. Trauma often results in dramatic changes to your appearance. 

This could include the eyes no longer being in their original position, facial or orbital fractures, as well as severe swelling or bruising. Some of these injuries can also impact your vision and eyelid function. The goal of the treatment will be to return your face and eyes to their natural appearance and restore function. Dr. Vargason will also work to minimize the long-term effects of the injuries, including scarring or double vision.

Who Is a Candidate?

If you have experienced a traumatic injury to your face that has impacted your eyes or the surrounding area, you may be a candidate for the procedure. The first step in determining candidacy is a consultation with Dr. Vargason. Dr. Vargason will examine the area and review your injuries during your consultation. She will then create a personalized plan that addresses your unique injuries.

In some cases, multiple surgeries may be required to coincide with the healing process. Dr. Vargason will provide you with an appropriate timeline for your procedure if she feels you are a candidate for surgery.

Your Procedure

The exact steps of your facial trauma repair procedure will vary depending on the location and degree. Your surgery will include repairing any fractures, as well as any damage to the eye socket, brow, or tear ducts. Aesthetic changes to your face will also be addressed by Dr. Vargason, with her goal being to help restore your previous appearance.

Your Recovery After Surgery 

Recovery can be different for each patient. Because facial trauma often stems from an accident or injury, you may still be recovering from that once the surgery is complete. During your consultation with Dr. Vargason, she will discuss your recovery timelines and provide you with a complete guide to your post-operative care to ensure you are prepared.
