Facial Laceration Repair

NWOman Smiling After Chin Implants New York NY

The face is the most recognizable feature of just about any person. When trauma or injury occur to the facial area, it is vital that patients consider their options for treatment. Most people immediately visit the emergency room where they will receive stitches, staples, or other techniques. In an emergency room setting where doctors are in an “emergency reactive mode,” reducing scaring is not usually taken into consideration. It is not that emergency room doctors do not care; it is that they are typically faced with time sensitive emergencies that require quick treatment so that they are able to move on to the next patient. The result of this is that many patients are left with an ugly scar on their face that can leave them self-conscious and embarrassed of their appearance.

Patients usually have another option. If the laceration is not life-threatening or it can temporarily be treated at home with a bandage, emergency facial laceration repair can be scheduled. Dr. Maurice Khosh in Manhattan is exceptionally skilled at performing emergency facial laceration repair. By contacting our practice as soon as you have assessed that your laceration is not life threatening, Dr. Khosh will do everything he can to treat you within 24 hours.

Having the forethought to contact a highly trained plastic surgeon when a facial laceration occurs can save you time, money, and recovery. It is much easier for Dr. Khosh to reduce the signs of scarring if he is able to repair the original laceration, versus trying to undo the damage and scar tissue caused by a quick repair in the emergency room. Of course, if the laceration is life threatening or you simply did not know that you had another option and you had your facial laceration repaired at the ER, all is not lost! Dr. Maurice Khosh is a renowned facial plastic surgeon who has the specific skill set and artistry to repair scaring and damage to the facial skin.

Facial lacerations are a common occurrence. If you or your child sustains a facial laceration, please contact our office immediately to schedule an emergency facial skin laceration repair. We understand that no emergency is planned ahead of time; therefore, Dr. Khosh and his entire team will do their best to accommodate your emergency situation into the schedule.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
