Though typically associated with cosmetic procedures, in the event of serious trauma, emergency plastic surgery may help prevent cosmetic and functional issues.
Because of their knowledge of the skin, tissue, and underlying musculature, plastic surgeons may be called into the emergency room to help deal with injury repair that leads to the greatest preservation of function and the least amount of scarring.
Plastic surgery can even help with injuries you may not need to visit the hospital. Learn more about emergency plastic surgeries and how your plastic surgeon can help heal and repair wounds.
What Emergency Injuries Can a Plastic Surgeon Repair?
