Thank you for the question.
Broken bones damage bone structure or fractures or fractures due to excessive pressure. The age of the patient and the type of fracture will affect the fracture healing process. The following are the stages of the fracture healing process:
Inflammation (inflammation). All types of fractures can cause bleeding even though they are small and make the surrounding organs inflamed, which is characterized by swelling, redness, warmth, and pain. This stage starts from the time the bone is broken until the first 2-3 weeks. Fine callus formation. This stage lasts 4-8 weeks after an injury characterized by the formation of young bones or fine callus at the ends of the broken bones. Formation of hard callus after formation of fine callus. It forms 8-12 weeks after injury. Remodeling of the bone or repairing or remodeling itself to be the same as before as the final stage of fracture healing. In order for normal bone healing to occur, the bones must be in a state of non-infection, good blood supply, and not much movement during the healing process.
In your case, the bone has undergone a healing process. Changes in facial shape during facial fracture healing can be caused by:
There are several pieces or parts of bone fragments that cannot be put together so that there is a shortening of the bone size. The bone is not properly connected. The bone changes its attachment position to the other end. So, even though the facial pen has been removed, it does not make the face return to the way it was before the fracture.
It's a good idea to consult this with a plastic surgeon so that the cause can be ascertained.
The suggestions for seeing a doctor immediately are when:
there is visual disturbance, there is disturbance of smell of the jaw with that which is not positioned properly can injure other areas of the mouth. Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
