Soft tissue injuries, whether isolated or in combination with other injuries, are among the most common traumatic craniofacial injuries encountered by emergency department personnel and plastic surgeons. In general, injury patterns vary greatly depending on the patient population. Slips, trips, and falls, which commonly cause isolated soft tissue injuries such as laceration and contusions, are most common in children and the elderly. Violence and motor vehicle accidents are the predominant causes of injury in individuals ranging from 15 to 50 years old.
