Popular Types of Sports Injury Cosmetic Surgery
Not every athlete plays the same game or suffers the same injury, at Michael J. Sundine Plastic Surgery, we offer plenty of facial surgical and cosmetic solutions to many sports-related injuries.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
Balls flying, pucks soaring, sticks poking, arms wailing – a broken nose is easily one of the more frequent occurrences in the wide world of sports. Rhinoplasty helps many athletes fix a broken or crooked nose. Not only will it help fix your nose that maybe didn’t set quite right, but it can also help you breathe easier, and when you’re striving to win the big game, every breath is just as important as the next.
Blepharoplasty (Eye Surgery)
There’s a common phrase involved with most sports, and that is “Keep your eye on the ball”; this advice is much easier to follow when your eyes are fully working. If you have ever suffered from an eye-related injury, you may find that your eyelids are droopy due to the new position of your ocular or orbital bones. Blepharoplasty is a great surgery that focuses on contouring your eyelid to the new shape of your eyes. Incisions to remove excess skin and fat are done very carefully, making them essentially invisible after your healing process is complete.
Facial Fracture Repair
There are many bumps, bruises, and scars that athletes will use to tell their stories, but the one thing that no one wants is a broken face. When one gains an aggressive facial injury, one primary concern is whether or not the face will return to its original look. With a Facial Fracture Repair, inconspicuous incisions are utilized to ensure minimal visibility.
Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
Cauliflower ear is an experience shared by wrestlers, bowers, hockey players, and rugby players alike. This condition is caused by blood clotting in the connective tissue of the ear, which causes permanent scar tissue that makes the ear look swollen and misshapen. During ear surgery, Dr. Sundine will carefully correct misshapen ears to create improved symmetry. If the ears are protruding, he will carefully pin them back so they’re closer to the head.
