Serious cuts or lacerations may need the attention of a plastic surgeon in order to minimize scarring. Engineered Aesthetics Plastic Surgery, led by Dr. Nitin Engineer, is a reputable and welcoming choice for Las Vegas area patients where they may receive competent, compassionate care. From the initial consultation through recovery and beyond, we always treat every patient like a member of the family.

Any laceration may require a plastic surgeon’s attention. Some signs that a laceration may be best treated by a plastic surgeon include:

  • A deep laceration with jagged edges
  • A particularly large laceration
  • A laceration in a very visible place, such as the face
  • A very deep laceration or cut through many layers of skin
  • A laceration over a joint
  • A cut or laceration with potential nerve damage

Laceration: Your Initial Consultation

Dr. Engineer will evaluate your laceration during your personal consultation and take the time to fully understand your personal needs and goals. His many years of training and copious surgical experience have allowed him to help many Las Vegas area patients to recover from lacerations with minimal scarring, and he may be able to do the same for you.

Staying current with laceration treatment

Dr. Engineer is committed to staying completely current on the latest and most effective treatment options and will draw from his experience and knowledge to close your wound in order to minimize scarring. Methods of wound closure may include:

  • Stitches
  • Absorbable sutures
  • Synthetic sutures
  • Dermabond or other adhesives

For very severe lacerations, skin grafting, tissue expansion, or flaps may be necessary, all of which allow skin to be transplanted from another area of the body to assist in smooth wound closure.

Reducing the appearance of scars after laceration treatment

It may not be possible to completely avoid scarring, however, Dr. Engineer and the team at Engineered Aesthetics Plastic Surgery offer several treatments to reduce the appearance of scarring after a wound has healed. Once you are Dr. Engineer’s patient, he remains deeply committed to assisting you in attaining your goals. Some of these may include:

  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Laser treatments
  • Dermal fillers
  • Scar revision surgery
  • Injectables
