Impact If The Cheekbones Are Cracked Not In Surgery?
Hello Doctor, I want to ask. My sister just had an accident and had more facial injuries. We visited the surgeon and were advised to do plastic surgery because his cheekbones were cracked. Does my sister really have to do plastic surgery? if not done, is there a bad risk?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, plastic surgeons don't just deal with facial beauty problems. People who suffer damage to the facial area (including injuries / broken / cracked facial bones) also sometimes require treatment from a plastic surgeon. Injury to this facial bone can vary in its effects, can be mild (for example, only a slight change in the shape of the face), can also be severe (so that it can interfere with innervation of the face, interfere with vision, interfere with the ability to talk and chew, interfere with the airway, etc.) depending on the severity of the injury.
Therefore we cannot decide whether or not plastic surgery should be performed on your sister because we do not know clearly the severity of the injury suffered. You can consult the doctor who is currently caring for your younger brother about the reasons for the need to consult a plastic surgeon, or you can discuss with a plastic surgeon in advance whether surgery is needed or not (if the injury is only mild, surgery may not be needed) . You can ask the plastic surgeon who will later check whether the surgery really needs to be done or not and what are the effects if it is not done.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
