Human face is the most developed part of body in evolution as compared to the face of other primates, because of its uniqueness of having the ability to express emotions though face.
Facial injuries when happen may affect, apart from its hallmark, five special senses of sight, smell, hearing, taste and labial feel and also the most important life sustaining functions of respiration, mastication, phonetics and esthetics. For children, time of injury is important as they are more vulnerable due to less developed age-related self-protection instincts.
