Fighters often retire reluctantly, which results in bearing the scars of a long career. However, there comes a time when every warrior has to hang up those gloves. With no further threat of facial injuries, some athletes may opt for rejuvenating treatments.
Scar tissue splits easily due to blunt force trauma. For fighters, this means that old wounds never really get the time to properly heal. In many cases, visible injury sites are deliberately targeted to gain a tactical or points advantage. The resulting scars can become raised or ragged, making them stand out more.
Once a fighter retires, he or she may wish to address old injuries and scars. In most combat sports, the face is a prime target. If you need facial reconstruction or scar revision, now is the time to consult with Dr. Maurice Khosh at his New York offices.
Nose breaks are one of the most common injuries in the fighting game. Athletes involved in combat sports may experience breathing issues due to a broken nose. There are also issues like a saddle nose deformity that result in an undesirable aesthetic.
Dr. Maurice Khosh can perform rhinoplasty procedures to correct damage to the nose. Whether you are concerned about function or aesthetics, we have solutions in New York. Correcting nasal damage will restore the balance and symmetry between facial features.
Some scars are more prominent than others. As a fighter, you may wish to leave behind the visible signs of your time in the ring. Some retired fighters feel like scars make them look thuggish or unapproachable. If your battle scars are getting in the way of pursuing new opportunities, Dr. Khosh offers effective revision surgeries.
Reducing the impact of scars can soften your facial aesthetics. You may find that interactions become easier in your personal and professional life. However, how you see yourself is the most important factor when considering scar revision.
Facial reconstruction can combine several treatments that are ideally suited to retired fighters. If you have suffered trauma to facial bones, tissues, muscles or skin, consider a New York Plastic surgery consultation.
