Injuries to the face and facial bones are very common following any road traffic accident. Most of the time the patient is lost due to delay in the patient reaching the emergency care at the earliest. They reach only after the 'Golden hour' has elapsed. This article throws some light on what a faciomaxillary surgeon can offer to the accident victim during the initial one-hour and thereafter following any injury to the face. Faciomaxillary surgeons are also a neglected lot during this time in the hospital as other specialists treat most of the facial injuries.
