Traumas to the soft tissues of the face are among the most common injuries treated by medical professionals. The treatment for animal bites, lacerations, abrasions and contusions can take weeks or months and more time in complicated cases. Reconstructive surgery may be required in order for certain wounds to close and heal properly. Reconstructive surgery is used to create, rebuild, or restructure the tissue and skin around a wound in order to facilitate healing and minimize scarring.
For the closure of a wound both aesthetic and functional outcomes are important. Eliminating dead space in the tissue, minimizing the formation of scar tissue and properly aligning the edges of the wound to avoid a scar depression require a skilled hand.
Dr. Rogers’ extensive experience with reconstructive surgery includes the latest in wound closure techniques and he will work with you to provide the best technique for you and your case.
