A displaced nose, a missing ear or a large scar on the forehead: injuries to the face can hardly be concealed. Every new meeting begins with the question of what happened there. Often people don’t want to tell the story behind it again, or preferably not at all. What can you do as a victim? Should others even address these injuries? And if so, how?
Parwis Mir-Salim is chief physician at the clinic for ear, nose and throat medicine, head and neck surgery and plastic operations at the Vivantes Clinic in Berlin-Friedrichshain. In the podcast he explains what helps with wound healing in the face, what a nose can be reconstructed from and whether a torn ear has to be reattached to the head.
