Camel Bite Injury and Laceration to Eyelid and Face

A camel bite is a dirty wound and can get infected. Meticulous debridement is essential to decrease the number of bacteria in the wound. I also gave this patient some antibiotics intravenously followed by pills. Eyelid laceration plastic and reconstructive surgery - Michael Bermant, MD

Injury to deeper structures is not always easily detected by looking at the skin. In this injury the eyelid and cheek muscles were torn from their attachments. Some of the tissue was too damaged to use. Reconstruction was done by moving the muscles and cheek skin. The trick is to maintain the nerve supply to the muscles moved. The nerves come in from the cheek side of the eye.

Three days after surgery.

Not all animal bites are easily avoided. This male camel (Snuggles) was in rut and not quite himself. The photograph to the right is with one of his lady friends. Eyelid laceration plastic and reconstructive surgery - Michael Bermant, MD
