Sometimes the unexpected happens and a minor injury occurs. Plastic surgeons are specially trained in wound closure and tissue rearrangement for laceration repair. Wound repair by a board certified plastic surgeon can optimize the aesthetic result following injury. At Plastic Surgery of Southern Connecticut, we commonly repair soft tissue injuries to the face and body – all that’s necessary is a phone call to our office. After the wounds have healed we offer the latest in scar therapies both surgical and non-surgical.
If you or your child has been injured and you would like Dr. O’Connell to treat a laceration or nasal fracture, please call our office at 203.454.0044 or you can telephone Dr. O’Connell directly at 203.252.4110. We offer the advantages of an on-call pediatric nurse and the resources and cleanliness of a facility dedicated entirely to plastic surgery with virtually no wait time. In some cases you or your child will be treated and have returned home in less time than it would have taken to be seen at a hospital Emergency Department – with the assurance that care has been provided by a highly experienced, board certified plastic surgeon. If there is an concern for a more severe injury, especially a head injury, or if you believe that the injury is a true emergency, call 911. Dr. O’Connell will be happy to see you or your child once more severe injuries have been ruled out.
Actual patient immediately following injury and approximately 2 months after repair.
