Pediatric Facial Trauma
Dr. Robert DeFatta understands that facial injury can be an extremely distressing event for anyone, but when it involves a child’s face, it can be a very harrowing experience. Facial trauma can result in varying injuries—from minor cuts to large wounds and broken bones in the face. One of the most common causes of facial lacerations requiring plastics repair in children is a dog bite, which can add an emotionally taxing factor to the entire experience.
Regardless of the extent of injury, Dr. Robert will be with you every step of the way to restore your child’s delicate appearance and help them heal. He will take care of your whole family, not just your child. Because each case is unique, he draws from his expert training and 15 years of experience treating the most complex facial trauma cases to custom tailor your child’s treatment plan. This process involves initial repair, close follow-up and the possibility of future revision if needed based on the extent of the injury and the outcomes of your child’s healing.
Whether your child needs urgent care or you are thinking about revision of a healed scar from an old injury, trust your child’s face to the face specialist. Call DeFatta Facial Plastics at (715) 828-2368 for more information or to schedule an appointment with our facial plastic surgeon.
