Emergency Laceration Repair Beverly Hills | UCLA Graduate

If you have a laceration on the face or body that requires immediate emergency repair, you may seek the care of a qualified plastic surgeon. Our office specializes in pediatric and adult emergency lacerations during normal business hours and after-hours by appointment. We have a 24 hour emergency line that can contact an experienced plastic surgeon or clinician to address your problem. 

Emergency lacerations require immediate care to mitigate scarring. It is best to contact our office to help manage your laceration with tissue glue, sutures, or wound care. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a specialist in laceration repair and offers expertise in scar management. 

Typically, sutures are used to repair lacerations under tension. Some lacerations will require a layered closure approach that approximates the deep and superficial tissue. Additional use of tissue adhesive glue may be indicated to improve epithelial wound healing.
