The face is absolutely vital to human appearance and function. It allows us to differentiate one person from another, and to express emotions and thoughts. The face is also anatomically complex; it includes skin, muscles responsible for both gross motor function and subtle facial expression, a complex bony structure, and vital sensory organs.
Injuries to the face may compromise the patient’s ability to breathe, see, speak, hear, eat, interact with others and may involve damage to the central nervous system.
