Trauma can be caused by a variety of circumstances from accidents to animal bites. Just as the causes are many, so are the procedures to correct the damage. Bone segments in the forehead, cheek, brow or jaw line may need to be realigned to promote proper healing. Traumatic facial lacerations may cause scarring, nerve damage and injury to salivary glands or tear ducts. Some of these complications can be minimized or repaired with Dr. Wheeler’s expertise.
