Injuries to the face or head often result following motor vehicle accidents, falls, assaults or sports-related trauma. If the force of the trauma is severe enough, facial bones can be broken. Broken bones in the face have the potential to impair a patient’s vision and their ability to chew, speak or even breathe. In addition, facial bone fractures can lead to obvious deformities that can cause significant problems if they are not repaired.

Facial bone fractures are usually diagnosed using a CT scan. If the bones are found to be significantly out of position then surgery is usually recommended. It is important that facial bone surgery only be performed by a surgeon with significant training in craniofacial and maxillofacial surgery. If facial bones are not repositioned properly, significant functional and aesthetic deformities can result.
