Hi,robbery and assault vic-resulted in a cheekbone/orbital fracture. Overlooked at KUmed,got an awful septo where he cut out bone on "nasal floor",face looks assymetrical,hair loss, still breathing issues,and whom & how in the world can I get this affordably addressed,let alone locally,if KU suspended me as a patient because of their own conflicting opionions and problems they overlooked? Any constuctive advice,or knowledge of someone I can see whom performs revisional repairs for misfortunate??

Corrective surgery can be performed to balance the asymmetry. Grafts may be necessary. Hair loss can be improved with kenalog injections.
