Not all procedures we perform here at Main Line Plastic Surgery are routine. We regularly see patients in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania who are suffering severe trauma and need emergency care to treat burns, cuts, lacerations or other injuries.
Emergency Care at Main Line Plastic Surgery
Emergency care here at Main Line Plastic Surgery is provided 24 hours per day, seven days a week. If you suffer a laceration, hand injury, facial trauma, or other issue at night, during the weekend, or on a holiday, please contact our hotline immediately at 484-222-0010. You should also contact us if you are suffering severe complications from any of the plastic surgery procedures we provide.
After calling our hotline, we will have our staff physician Dr. Alison Alibri meet you at the emergency department of one of the following local hospitals:
Am I a Good Candidate for Emergency Care?
If you have suffered a serious injury, don’t wait. Even if you feel your treatment isn’t that urgent, it is best to have things looked at right away to prevent infection and minimize the amount of disfigurement you experience. Those who seek treatment right away tend to have shorter recovery periods and less downtime than others.
What to Expect* after Emergency Care
Most of the emergency cases we handle do not require admittance to any hospital. We will do our best to treat you quickly so that you can get on with your busy day. Of course, how fast you can be seen will depend on a variety of factors such as the number of other patients in the emergency room. In any case:
We will do our best to ensure you are as comfortable as possible while you wait, and that any friends or family members who accompany you are treated with dignity and respect.
Recovering from Emergency Care
You will be given aftercare instructions, which could involve a follow-up appointment at our office. Please follow these instructions very carefully, and do not hesitate to contact us again if you have any questions or find that you are not responding to treatment as you had anticipated.
Main Line Plastic Surgery is proud to provide emergency care to patients in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, Wayne, Bucks County, Upper Darby, Abington, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania, as well as in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
