When the face is impacted by great force during an auto accident, the tissues can be pulled away, cut, burned or scraped down to the bones. Numerous facial fractures can happen on impact, leading to severe swelling and bleeding. Broken bones can damage the eyes if sharp edges cut into critical tissues and nerves, such as those responsible for sight. Other nerves needed for facial expression, speaking and normal movement such as blinking the eyes may also be damaged.
One’s ability to breathe normally, speak and convey emotion through facial expression is often altered in these types of injuries. Burns and scars may require extensive reconstruction, tissue transplants, and recovery time.
How we look is closely tied to how we feel about ourselves and our sense of well-being and fulfillment. Changes to facial structure after a motor vehicle accident can result in lower quality of life and depression. Psychological support is an important part of recovery after this type of a serious injury, and should be integrated into the therapeutic plan.
