Recovery times will depend on the extent and complexity of your procedures. It is realistic to anticipate a moderate amount of swelling and bruising in the treatment area, which may take several weeks to fully resolve. Your surgeon will provide you with specific aftercare instructions and may prescribe pain medication to manage your discomfort. Normal activities may be restricted for several weeks.

Incisions or repaired lacerations should be kept clean. Scars resulting from incision lines will gradually fade and flatten over the course of several months. Severe facial fractures may require additional surgery following the initial healing phase to help restore form and function to the face.

All surgical procedures carry the risk of complication. These risks will be discussed in depth during your consultation. Some risks associated with facial trauma surgery may include adverse reaction to anesthesia, excessive bleeding, infection or undesirable cosmetic outcome.
