Freddie Flintoff‘s car crash injuries, it goes without saying, were really horrific, and Riccardo Frati, a London-based plastic surgery expert who has extensive experience in nasal reconstruction and post-trauma injuries, can attest to that. In an interview with Daily Star Sport, he said that car crashes such as Flintoff had been involved in, usually have a ‘high rate of mortality’ and that he was fortunate to escape with just the facial scars.
Multiple superficial or deep wound injuries involving the skin and soft tissue at different layers could have been caused by this type of car crash trauma at such high speed. Deeper structures like facial nerves branches can be temporary or permanently injured and as a result of it, partial or extensive facial paresis can develop.
Freddie Flintoff had some scarring next to his right nostril and on his chin and the right side of his mouth was drooping. The plastic surgery expert said that such kinds of injuries can take a long period of time to recover and some changes could even become permanent.
The right side of his lower face seems to be drooping due to a partial facial nerve injury affecting the various facial muscles responsible for the lower lip and facial muscle expressions.
