|Our oral surgeons have years of experience and are trained to help with reconstruction after a car accident or any trauma to the face.
Depending on the severity and urgency in providing you assistance, we will do the procedure on-site or at the hospital.
An injury to the face is extremely upsetting because of the uncertainty. Will I look normal again? How will I pay for the surgery? These are just some of the questions you and your family can have after an accident that results in damages to the face. We are here to help you as much as we can.
Does Insurance Cover Reconstructive Surgery?
Most medical insurance plans cover reconstructive surgery after an accident, and we will do everything we can to help you by calling your insurance company and filling out the necessary paperwork to put your mind at ease.
If there is another person at fault, for example, in a car accident, you want to make sure someone speaks to the other motorist because in all likelihood they will be responsible for paying all your medical expenses and car repairs or replacement.
How Can Our Doctors Help with Injuries to the Face?
Depending on the level of trauma and injuries to the face, you may require reconstructive or plastic surgery. Following the event, you will need several tests to determine what the damage is and how to proceed to fix it. You may require X-rays and scans to see bone damage in more detail.
After a diagnosis is made, our doctors will recommend a course of action, which can include surgery. In some cases, more than one procedure will be needed to correct the problems resulting from an accident.
If you or someone you know requires reconstructive surgery, we have the knowledge and experience to solve your problems. Please give us a call for a free consultation.
