Facial trauma, also called maxillofacial trauma, is any physical trauma to the face. Facial trauma can involve soft tissue injuries such as burns, lacerations and bruises, or fractures of the facial bones such as nasal fractures and fractures of the jaw, as well as trauma such as eye injuries.
HOW IS FACIAL TRAUMA DIAGNOSED?
Facial trauma often being an emergency situation requires emergency diagnosis and treatment. C-rays are ordered by the general physician to locate the trauma. Angiography is used to locate the place of bleeding. CT scans are used for detecting skull fractures and multiple injuries.
HOW IS FACIAL TRAUMA TREATED?
Treatment for facial trauma includes application of medicine to ease the pain, burning, scratch, etc. In some cases, if the trauma is very extreme a cosmetic surgical procedure might be suggested. Structural changes may be required in case of broken bones on the face.

Head injuries may also occur along with facial injuries and the fact is that these injuries are far more serious than facial trauma. It is important to pay attention to the head injuries, particularly in children younger than 3 years of age.
