New York Facial Skin Laceration Repair

The facial skin is very delicate and can easily scar from cuts or lacerations. Although any emergency room can repair a laceration to the face with stitches or other techniques, reducing scar tissues is rarely a concern. The result of a quickly treated facial skin laceration can be a lasting scar that can alter the appearance of the patient, resulting in much deeper emotional scars.

Facial skin laceration repair can be performed to reduce scarring, leaving the skin smooth and without noticeable repercussions. Dr. Khosh is an experienced board-certified facial plastic surgeon that can perform laceration repair and other facial reconstruction on the facial skin with specialized techniques to reduce scarring and disfiguration. Not only will the laceration be treated, it will be carefully closed to allow for the best level of healing.

Emergency Skin Laceration Repair

The first response when a facial laceration or cut occurs is to go to an emergency room. However, if the cut is not life threatening or can be temporary treated at home, emergency facial laceration repair can be scheduled. In most cases this needs to occur within 24-hours for the best results. It is much easier for Dr. Khosh to reduce the signs of scarring if he is able to repair the laceration, versus trying to undo the damage caused by a quick repair in the emergency room. However, if it is necessary to have a repair performed at the hospital in an emergency situation, call Dr. Khosh’s office as soon as possible after the accident to schedule a consultation to evaluate the laceration.

If you or your child sustains a facial laceration, contact our office today to schedule an emergency facial skin laceration repair. Dr. Khosh and his team will do their best to accommodate an emergency situation into their schedule.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

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.

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.
