How will the break be treated?

October 30, 2019

We will give you an appointment to see a Consultant in the Maxillofacial Trauma Clinic. This appointment is usually five to seven days after you injured yourself.

They will decide if you need an operation to mend the break and agree a date with you for surgery. This will be about two weeks after the injury, to give the swelling in your face time to go down.

All cheekbone breaks also lead to a break in the floor of your eye socket and we sometimes need to treat this as well.

You will have a general anaesthetic for your surgery so you will be completely asleep.

Could you be covered?
