Maxillofacial trauma, or trauma of the face, requires prompt and accurate diagnosis to ensure proper treatment, mainly due to trauma often resulting in complex bony and soft tissue injuries. Dr. Hershcovitch is a board-certified otolaryngologist and also fellowship trained in facial plastic surgery, providing unique expertise and experience to reconstruct the features of the face, returning patients to full functionality and appearance.
Using high-resolution CT scanners and three-dimensional CT formatting, Dr. Hershcovitch can properly plan the reduction of the fractures from the trauma to obtain the best possible outcomes.
In spite of accurate diagnosis and injury analysis, some patients develop long term functional or cosmetic deformities that require additional intervention. Common post-traumatic facial deformities include:
- Soft tissue atrophy
- Post-traumatic enopthalmus (recessed eyeball in orbit)
- Post-traumatic telecanthus (increased distance between eyelids)
- Malar flattening
- Cranial defects
Dr. Hershcovitch is fellowship trained in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and is an expert in treating this post-traumatic deformities. Combining advanced craniofacial techniques with state-of-the-art technologies used in preoperative planning and intra-operative design of restorative surgery is the best approach for his patients.
