Facial skin is extremely delicate, increasing the risk of scarring after a cut or laceration. Although any emergency room can perform a basic repair of a facial laceration, the result of a quickly treated facial skin laceration can be a lasting scar that alters your appearance permanently.
Dr. Christian Paquet, an experienced facial plastic surgeon, is capable of performing a laceration repair and facial reconstruction using specialized techniques that will reduce scarring and prevent disfiguration.
Even though the initial response after sustaining a facial laceration or cut is to go to the emergency room, most cuts that are not life threatening can be repaired within 24-48 hours. Dr. Paquet is able to reduce the chances of scarring if he is able to repair the laceration initially rather than trying to reverse the damage caused by a hasty repair in the emergency room.
If you have suffered a facial laceration or cut that is not life threatening, Dr. Paquet recommends that you be seen and evaluated as soon as possible. To schedule a consultation please call our Concierge Patient Coordinator at (602) 726-6310 or email us at email@example.com
Frequently Asked Questions
Question - What should I do if I sustain a facial cut or laceration?
If your facial laceration is not life threatening, it does not need to be repaired immediately in the emergency room. Dr. Paquet recommends you cover it temporarily with a moist dressing and call the office for an evaluation and repair within 24-48 hours. Dr. Paquet will do his best to accommodate any urgent repair into his schedule.
“Can’t say enough about our experience with Dr. Christian Paquet. I brought my son to see him for a rhinoplasty, and it has changed his life. His nose is now perfectly straight, without a bump, and looks completely natural. My son is over the moon happy. Dr. Paquet is caring and truly interested in patient care, unlike other doctors we saw that just tried to rush us out. He is extremely professional and makes you feel comfortable. I have already recommended him to everyone. If you are shopping around for plastic surgeons do yourself a favor and stop… and go see Dr. Paquet. I will be back for my facelift in a few years :).”
