    The long term effects of a facial injury


    Cuts and bruises to the face will often heal with no trace, so the long term effects of a facial injury are not something you usually need to worry about. Some cuts can cause scars, and injuries such as this can lead to a compensation claim. If you were not responsible for causing your injury, talk to Accident Advice Helpline.

    Dealing with a facial injury

    Broken cheeks and jaws will often heal, leaving no long term symptoms. In some cases you might be left with a clicking noise when you move your mouth, but once the joint has healed, you should feel no pain.

    Cuts and burns can lead to scarring. A small scar may not be too much of a problem, but larger scars can lead to you feeling disfigured and uncomfortable about the way you look. It’s not always easy to get over this feeling so you may be prescribed counselling.

    If you are badly scarred, plastic surgery could be an option. While your scars shouldn’t hurt you physically, they can have a big effect emotionally. Plastic surgery is usually carried out privately but there are occasions when your doctor could prescribe this on the national health.
