Laceration repair​

A laceration is a tear in the skin and flesh due to trauma. When it is a deep tear, suturing under local pain relief and sedation or general anaesthesia may be needed.

Operation

The wound is washed clean and closed with dissolvable sutures in layers

After the operation

It is important to keep the wound clean and dry for the next 2 days. Thereafter, your child can shower normally. Please contact us if there is wound swelling, redness or discharge. Wound strength will develop over time hence avoid things that disrupt it, for example swimming and exercise, for at least 4 weeks.
