The face is vital to human appearance and function. Facial injuries can impair a person’s ability to eat, speak, interact with others, and perform other important functions. Dr. Zaydon can help you bring back the functionality and looks that that you once had. Sports like football, baseball, and hockey account for a high percentage of facial injuries among young adults. Severe injuries often occur as a result of motor vehicle collisions, including those involving motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles. Other mechanisms include falls, animal bites, and recreational activities. The face is anatomically complex. It includes skin, muscles responsible for both gross motor function and subtle facial expression, a complex bony structure, and vital sensory organs. Injuries to the face may compromise the patient's ability to breathe, see, speak, hear, and eat, and may involve damage to the central nervous system. If you have any more questions, please contact The Cosmetic Surgery of Institute of Miami to schedule a consultation with Dr. Zaydon.
