It is common for athletes to get sports injuries while playing their sport. While some may flaunt the scar, others wish to get rid of the scars. Sports injuries or scars can be rectified and repaired with the help of cosmetic surgeries.
If you are planning to get your sports injuries healed, then you are not alone. Many athletes go for such surgeries to get their broken noses fixed and crooked teeth restored. Cosmetic surgery, also helps in correcting the damaged jaw and cheekbones.
It is to be noted that cosmetic surgeries are not just meant for aesthetic purposes. They help an athlete fix the site of sports injury and restore its full working capacity. Yes, you read that right. Many cosmetic surgeries are done for reconstructive purposes as well.
Here’s a look at some of the common type of cosmetic surgeries done at Mayfair Aesthetic for sports injuries:
It is one of the most common types of cosmetic surgeries performed on athletes. Rhinoplasty helps in fixing broken noses and improving the looks of a crooked nose. The surgery can also help in fixing breathing issues post injury. The surgery involves great precision. So, it should only be performed by an experienced cosmetologist. He/ she should be board certified in otolaryngology or facial plastic surgery. For best results, go to a cosmetic surgeon with both certifications.
For eye-related sports injuries, the plastic surgeons suggest blepharoplasty. The eyelids get droopier after the injury. The surgery works on contouring the eyelid to a new shape of the eyes. It also involves removing excess skin and fat. The incisions are made carefully during the surgery, so they are not visible post recovery.
Scar revision at Mayfair Advanced is a cosmetic surgery that aims at improving the appearance of any scar. It not only helps in correcting the skin changes after an injury but also helps in restoring the function. There are different ways of performing a scar revision surgery for improving its appearance.
The method of surgery is chosen based on the size, depth, and location of the wound. For scar revision, your age and skin characteristics are also taken into consideration.
Ear surgery, also known as Otoplasty, is performed on boxers, rugby players, and wrestlers. They commonly experience ear injuries such as Cauliflower ear. The condition happens when blood clots in the connective tissue of the ear. This leads to a permanent scar and gives the ear swollen and misshapen look.
Otoplasty corrects the shape of the ear and improves symmetry. Protruding ears are pinned back, so they get close to the head.
If you have broken facial bones because of your sport, facial implants can help. To begin with, the cheek and chin bones can be supported with the help of facial implants. They help your face in returning to its normal shape. The facial implants are customized to fit an individual. The implants are fixed during the cosmetic surgery. The recovery doesn’t take long. More often, swelling and bruising happen, but they subside within a week.
These were some of the most common cosmetic surgeries done to rectify sports injuries. They can fix functional issues and enhance the aesthetic appeal as well.
