If you are facing facial trauma surgery to repair damage after an accident or other trauma, it is natural to feel anxious or uncertain about what to expect. Every situation is unique and how your reconstruction goes must be tailored to your individual damage and needs. Your recovery period can also vary depending on the extent of the injury and the specific procedures you require.

LM Medical in NYC performs exquisitely detailed facial trauma surgery and damage reconstruction. Here are several general guidelines and tips that can help you navigate this time with greater ease and confidence.

Multiple Procedures May Be Necessary

Some damage may require a few surgical procedures to correct. Some damage may need to be repaired and allowed to heal before other trauma can be addressed. Each repair and healing process impacts the following procedures, so this is a completely customized process for every patient. Be patient and allow the process to unfold. Speak with LM Medical about your concerns or fears and ask as many questions as you like. Our team wants you to have the greatest knowledge possible about what to expect.

Your Surgeon is Your Guide

First and foremost, it is important to follow LM Medical’s instructions closely and attend all scheduled appointments. This will ensure that any potential complications or concerns are identified and addressed as soon as possible. Your surgeon may also provide you with specific guidelines for pre-operative preparations and post-operative care, such as how to care for your incisions, when and how to take medication and when to return to normal activities.

Surgery Causes Its Own Trauma

In general, you can expect to experience some degree of pain, swelling and bruising in the days and weeks following facial trauma surgery. LM Medical can prescribe pain medication or recommend over-the-counter pain relievers to help manage discomfort. Applying ice packs to the affected area can also help reduce swelling and bruising.

Daily Routines May Be Altered

You may also need to modify your diet and/or daily routine during the recovery period and in between procedures. For example, you may need to avoid certain foods that are difficult to chew or swallow or avoid activities that could put strain on the affected area. LM Medical will provide you with specific recommendations based on your individual needs and concerns.

Patience is Paramount

It is important to be patient with the recovery process and give your body time to heal. While you may be eager to return to your normal routine as soon as possible, pushing yourself too hard too soon can slow down the healing process and potentially cause complications. Be sure to get plenty of rest, stay hydrated and follow LM Medical’s recommendations for gradually reintroducing physical activity and other normal daily activities.
