Procedures - Facial Trauma

Facial trauma, which may result from a motor vehicle accident, assault, or a sports injury, can be devastating to an individual. Facial trauma can change your appearance and affect your ability to function. It may include severe cuts, bruises, burns, muscle damage, and fractures. Facial trauma may also affect the way others interact with you or vice versa. Having more than 2 decades of experience working at a major level 1 trauma centre, Dr De Aguiar can perform surgical procedures to improve your appearance and restore function to your facial muscles, minimising the long-term impact such accidents can have.

Post-Traumatic Deformities
Injuries can affect our appearance, leaving behind scars or bone abnormalities, and can sometimes even impair function. This is not always due to an original improper treatment, but may be the result of a repair that simply changed over time. Plastic surgeons can often improve post-traumatic deformities using special tools and techniques.

For instance, one can revise or re-align scars, making them less noticeable. For larger depression areas or abnormal tissues, we can also inject fat or other compounds into your skin to make it even.

If you have suffered an injury and are currently experiencing post-traumatic deformity, you may be able to benefit from reconstructive surgery

Procedures by Dr De Aguiar



Just as the facial muscles may sag or wrinkle with age, so can the skin on the torso, breasts, thighs and upper arms.



Loss of skin elasticity, the force of gravity and other factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding ultimately affect the shape and firmness of a woman’s breasts.



As part of the natural aging process, our skin progressively loses its elasticity and our muscles tend to slacken.



From the top of the head to the tip of the toe, and from newborn babies to the very elderly, reconstructive surgery is used to treat a wide range of conditions.


Non Surgical

Apart from the cosmetic uses of Botox, the drug has been used to treat more than 70 medical conditions.
