Charity description

Facial Surgery Research Foundation - Saving Faces logo
Founded by a maxillofacial surgeon, Saving Faces aims through education and research to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of facial disfigurement, facial injury and mouth cancer and is committed to reducing the suffering of all victims of these devastating and often fatal conditions.

People suffer the consequences of facial diseases, injuries and disfigurement every day. In the United Kingdom alone 4,700 people develop oral cancer every year and 1,700 people die from this kind of cancer. Around 125,000 young people sustain serious facial injuries and 15,000 people receive treatment for facial disfigurement. Despite the severity of these issues, this remains a much neglected research area leaving thousands of those unfortunate enough to be affected with little hope for the future. Not enough is known about facial disease, injury and deformity, their psychological and emotional impact and, critically, which treatments are most effective.The Facial Surgery Research Foundation - Saving Faces, is the only charity in the United Kingdom solely dedicated to the worldwide reduction of facial injuries and diseases. We are taking the lead in education and research to improve the physical and psychological treatment of all victims of oral cancer and other facial diseases.
