Facial fracture repair is a complex area of surgery. Depending on the areas damaged and affected features, you may need to consult with multiple specialists. When a patient is on pain medications and dealing with other impacts of the injury, organizing coordinated treatment options is an uphill struggle.
Less complex facial fractures usually require treatment from a single specialist who can take care of all your needs. In order to establish the requirements of a treatment plan, it is first necessary to establish the scope of damage and which areas of the face will be impacted by surgical procedures.
Coordinating Primary Care
Patients who have suffered a facial fracture will benefit from working with a primary care physician. Although your surgeon may have the experience or training to provide all your treatments, having a single point of contact will take the stress out of coordinating multiple facial reconstruction procedures.
A highly experienced plastic surgeon who understands facial anatomy is a practical choice for your primary care. In the event that all surgical needs fall within your doctor’s expertise, there is no need to consult with other specialists. However, should you need treatment from other specialists, your primary care provider may be able to coordinate that effort.
