We are recognized as uniquely individual on the outside by our face. Our friends, family and loved ones recognize us by these same facial characteristics. When our face is altered or changed in some way, however, it can affect us deeply.
There are lots of injuries that can happen that could alter the way the face looks. Sports injuries, fights, facial surgery, and car accidents are just some of the instances where we can be left with devastating and long-lasting scars on our face.
Thankfully, there are reconstructive plastic surgery procedures available that can help repair these scars and disfigurements.
Why Reconstructive Plastic Surgery for Facial Disfigurement?
Reconstructive plastic surgery has advanced in techniques and thus has become readily available in today’s society. It can be used to treat facial bone fractures, burns, cancer, benign tumors, scars from infections, developmental abnormalities or even defects you were born with, including a cleft lip or cleft palate.
Not only can these procedures help to restore or improve function, but it can also give you back your appearance. One famous athlete who went through reconstructive surgery after a sports injury was Pittsburgh Steelers’ star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Facial Reconstruction of the Nose
During the first quarter of a recent game between his team and the Baltimore Ravens, Roethlisberger was hit extremely hard in his face, breaking his nose. Two days later, the two-time Super Bowl winner underwent reconstructive plastic surgery to correct the injury.
Not only is reconstructive plastic surgery available to mega star athletes, it is also available to you. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), more than 138,000 reconstructive plastic surgery procedures were performed last year.
