When trauma such as injury or a burn happens to you or a loved one, it is critical to find a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon with the skill and ability to perform exceptional reconstructive surgery. 

What is trauma plastic surgery?

Trauma plastic surgery addresses the wounds and deformities that result from injury such as burns, cuts, bites, crushes, and more. Our team of plastic surgery and reconstructive surgeons provide expert, compassionate care to restore both cosmetic appearance and functionality for patients who have:

  • Extremity injuries
  • Facial deformities
  • Craniofacial deformities
  • Complex wounds and burns

Types of trauma

Accidents and injuries can happen to anyone, at any time. In fact, there are roughly 3 million traumatic facial injuries alone per year. From dog bites to sports injuries to industrial accidents to car crashes, trauma does happen — and when it does, finding the right trauma plastic surgeon may make the difference in the use and appearance of your body forever. 

Blunt impact injuries happen when the trauma is caused by a forceful impact. This can include car wrecks, bike accidents, falls, punches, and more.

Penetrating injuries happen when the trauma is caused by a foreign object penetrating the skin. This can include stab wounds, gunshot, cuts, and more. 

Thermal injuries happen when the body comes into direct contact with heat. This can include fires, electrical sources, and explosions. 

Crush injuries happen when part of the body is crushed under pressure, causing compression. This can include industrial accidents, building collapse, traffic collisions, accidents from natural disaster, and more. 


Performing surgery to restore your body from trauma is just one part of what we do at Regency. Guiding you through the recovery process to ensure your injury is well taken care of is another element of our services. After your surgery is complete, we will provide you with detailed home care instructions and an after-care plan to make sure your injury heals as well as possible, and that your recovery is smooth. 

Your customized recovery plan may include:

  • How to care for the surgical site
  • Medications to take or apply
  • What you will need to avoid during recovery
  • Specific problems to watch out for
  • When we may need to see you again
