Domestic violence accounts for fifteen percent of all violent crimes, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV). Regardless of gender, age or race, it’s prevalent in every community. Thousands of phone calls are made to hotlines nationwide by victims searching for help, but the violence still leaves both physical and emotional scars.

FACE TO FACE: The Domestic Violence Project is a humanitarian program that offers pro bono facial plastic and reconstructive surgery to domestic violence survivors to repair injuries on the face, head and neck caused by an intimate partner or spouse. In honor of October as National Domestic Violence Awareness month, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) and FACE TO FACE created an infographic to shed light and raise awareness about domestic violence and the treatments the project provides to survivors.
