Facial wounds are a frequent reason for emergency room visits. The goals of laceration repair are to achieve hemostasis, avoid infection, restore function to the involved tissues, and achieve optimal cosmetic results with minimal scarring. Therefore, these cases are most appropriately managed by plastic surgeons who have a thorough knowledge of anatomy, aesthetic sense, and meticulous expertise in atraumatic tissue manipulation, combined with the surgical skill to repair any structure. You need to know what to do and what not to do : whether to suture or leave open. What local anesthesia to use and how. What equipment to use (and have it available beforehand). Whether to give antibiotic therapy and what kind. How to avoid aesthetic or functional after-effects. Which dressing to use depending on the state of the wound. This article will serve as an aid to wound management and review repair techniques for high-risk areas of the face.
