Treatment of Cuts, Burns, Bites, Facial Fractures and Wound Care at Advanced Specialty Care in Connecticut
Cosmetic and plastic surgeons perform more than just body contouring and cosmetic procedures. In fact, much of their work also includes reconstructive procedures for scar revision, repair of dog bites and lacerations, facial fractures, wound care and more.
Broken bones in the face such as orbital fractures around the eye, nasal bone fractures in the nose, zygoma and maxillary fractures around the cheek and jaw and hand fractures may need to be surgically corrected and should always be evaluated by a plastic surgeon within two weeks of the injury to ensure the bones don’t heal in an improper position.
Care for chronic wounds should never be delayed or self-treated at home. Improper treatment can be dangerous causing advanced infection and for wounds due to malignant or cancerous cells, treatment is imperative. When possible, seek early attention with a local plastic surgeon who can manage wound care including managing wound vacs, tissue repair, excision and closure as well as infection control.
Burns, bites, fractures and complex wounds can occur at any time and for these types of urgent cases, our surgeons are often able to accommodate same-day appointments during our normal business hours.
While it’s prudent to seek immediate medical attention in an emergency room or urgent care center, it’s also important that a plastic surgeon is involved in your follow-up for the best possible result and outcome.
The board certified specialists at Advanced Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery can properly treat deep cuts, bites, burns and more and are also able to provide reconstruction following trauma. Appointments are available in our four convenient offices in Danbury, New Milford, Norwalk and Ridgefield, CT.
