Symptoms

Symptoms may include pain, swelling, bleeding, bruising, and numbness, while fractures to the facial bones may also result in difficulty breathing, speaking or seeing.

Maxillofacial trauma may also involve serious or life threatening symptoms, such as brain injury, airway obstruction, excessive bleeding, or shock.

Maxillofacial trauma is any injury to the face or jaws. Facial trauma may present with skin lacerations, burns, obstruction to the nasal cavity or sinuses, damage to the orbital (eye) sockets, fracture to the jawbone, and missing or broken teeth. All can have have a significant impact on your appearance – not only in terms of pain or reduced capabilities, but also in your overall quality of life.

The combination of dental and surgical training makes Mr Lee as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon uniquely skilled at restoring the aesthetics of facial proportions, the functionality of jaw joints and bites, and damaged or missing teeth.

Mr Lee also offers a range of surgical treatments that can effectively restore or improve the appearance of the face after injury.

Cheekbone and eye socket injuries

The cheekbone (zygoma) forms part of the eye socket, both protecting the eyeball and supporting it from below. It is also linked to the side of the nose and the upper jaw.

Careful examination and a comprehensive treatment plan are essential in restoring cheek prominence and fixation with mini metal plates and screws.

Lower jaw injuries

Lower jaw (mandible) fractures present with pain, swelling, bleeding, facial numbness, changes to bite (occlusion) and loss of function. Under general anaesthesia the fractures are reduced and fixed with mini metal plates and screws restoring bite (occlusion) and function.

Upper Jaw Injuries

Upper jaw (maxilla) fractures present with pain, swelling, bleeding, facial numbness, mobility, change to bite (occlusion) and loss of function.

Under general anaesthesia the fractures are reduced and fixed with mini metal plates and screws restoring bite (occlusion) and function.
