Laceration repair is a highly customizable procedure, as lacerations can come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and severities.

When to Consider Laceration Repair
A laceration is any significant cut or tear made to the skin. These can vary in size, shape, and severity, which means that no two laceration repair procedures are ever exactly the same. Some lacerations can be relatively shallow, and might only require simple sutures or stitches to close.
In other cases, lacerations can be quite deep. This may involve tissue repair to multiple layers, in a reconstructive procedure that can be somewhat involved. When this involves the delicate structures of the face, Dr. Mark Fisher is able to call upon his extensive fellowship training in craniofacial plastic surgery to repair any wounds and restore full functionality.
Some lacerations can be straight lines and are relatively easy to repair. When lacerations are irregular, however, Dr. Fisher possesses the skill and training needed to effectively minimize scarring and restore the treatment area’s cosmetic appearance.
