Lacerations or damage to the soft tissue as a result of traumatic injury can lead to disfigurement and problematic scarring.
Plastic surgeons are trained to repair these injuries with the utmost precision and care in order to limit scarring and problematic healing. Lacerations to the face, neck and hand can involve many important structures which are close to the skin surface such as nerves, muscles, tendons, cartilage and blood vessels. Due to the potential of these injuries, a surgeon with experience and knowledge about the anatomy is best to treat these situations.
Dr. Polecritti at the Julian Institute of Plastic Surgery has the surgical skill, experience and interest in providing comprehensive medical and surgical treatment to traumatic lacerations and injuries.
