Surgeons Repair Cosmetic Injury

Serious car accidents cause motorists to suffer life-threatening injuries as well as cosmetic damage. Burns, lacerations, and wounds may leave permanent scarring or discolored tissue. Psychological harm and physical pain also accompany disfigurement. These victims are forced to re-live the trauma of a car crash every time they look in the mirror. Facial damage may affect necessary activities, such as eating and breathing. Disfigured hands prevent victims from returning to work or enjoying hobbies. Specialized surgeons are able to minimize mental anguish and physical limitations. Plastic surgery can repair cosmetic injuries to the body, and skin grafts can hide burn wounds. These medical procedures lead to extensive rehabilitation periods and costly medical bills.

Move Forward with Professional Help

Therapy may be necessary after an accident victim is left with permanent disfigurement. Patients recovering from a cosmetic injury should seek psychiatric help if some or all of the following symptoms are present:

  • Anger
  • Poor social and family support
  • Loss of hope
  • Preoccupation with new appearance
  • Depressed mood
  • Poor financial support
  • Loss of job
  • Chronic pain
  • Sleep problems
