What procedure can fix my face?
Facial and head trauma
I agree with Dr. Miles... Don't believe the boyfriend! You are very attractive! Often the aftermath of trauma is not evident until later - especially with occult blow-out fractures and partial facial nerve issues. The brow can be corrected in an office setting without a lot of down time. The sunken appearance of the right eye is a little more complicated and may involve getting a CT scan of the orbit to evaluate. I would recommend seeing an Oculoplastic surgeon for the eye and orbital exam. It is important to understand all the risks and benefits of orbital surgery to correct enophthalmos (sunken appearance). To tackle all of the problems you pointed out, you would need more than one procedure - the orbit and brow could be addressed by an Oculoplastic surgeon and the nose - by a cosmetic ENT surgeon or maxillofacial surgeon. It is possible that the three components of surgery could be done at the same time - general anesthesia - with one down time. Best wishes on your decisions.
