When the face becomes injured, it may result in lifelong disfigurement and scarring which can alter the facial features considerably and be difficult to overcome.

Facial injury is defined as any injury to any area of the face, including the chin, forehead, cheeks, nose, lower jaw or upper jaw.
The causes of a facial injury
There can be many ways to sustain a facial injury. A few examples are:
- Penetrative injury to the face;
- Chemical attack such as acid;
- Physical trauma to the face;
- Sporting injury from heavy contact sports such as boxing and rugby;
- Violent assault;
- Road traffic accident; and
- Animal bites and injuries.
Symptoms of a facial injury
- Pain and discomfort over the facial area;
- Loss of sensitivity over the facial area;
- Difficulty breathing through the nose due to bleeding and swelling;
- Problems with vision such as blurred vision or double vision;
- Dental problems such as missing or loose teeth; and
- Swelling around the eyes.
Seeking a medical opinion
It is obviously essential that medical advice is sought as soon as possible following an injury to the facial area. The practitioner will conduct a full physical examination to check that the bleeding is under control, and to establish that breathing is maintained and that the airway is kept clear of obstructions.
Broken bones may need to be repaired surgically using titanium plates and screws to restore function and shape. Scarring may be unavoidable, but is more likely to be minimised due to advances in surgical procedures and prompt treatment reducing the likelihood of infection.
