Needs evaluation

An exam and evaluation by a plastic surgeon are necessary.  A CT scan will show the bone damage.  Reconstruction with implants, fat injections or fillers, or moving the bones may be necessary.  University medical centers usually can help with this type of major trauma reconstruction.
