According to the National Safety Council, occupational injuries and accidents happen every seven seconds, which accounts for at least 510 injured workers per hour. These work-related injuries can range from simple muscle strain to fractures and dislocations, resulting in at least 21 days of disability and loss of productivity.
Unfortunately, not all injuries can be treated in a span of 21 days, especially if the accident left you physically scarred and disfigured. But such work-related traumas do not have to become a permanent fixture on your body. There’s a way to treat your injury to return you to your pre-injury appearance — and that is through plastic surgery.
Contrary to popular belief, plastic surgery is not all about nose jobs (rhinoplasty) and breast augmentation procedures. A significant part of the practice focuses on reconstructive surgeries to fix medical defects and injuries caused by work-related accidents.
In fact, plastic surgery is covered by workers’ compensation benefits as part of your treatment plan following a work-related injury.
