Laceration Closure & Repair
A gentleman underwent a debridement and closure of a traumatic forehead laceration. Dr Buglino used stitching to close the wound. After healing, post-operative laser treatment reduced the appearance of any scarring.
When a young boy fell on concrete steps, he split open his forehead. Dr. Buglino sutured the wound shut. The stitches were removed once His skin injury healed up and he was back to normal in a few weeks.
Complex Wound: Dog Bite
Over the summer- the busy season for dog bites- Dr. Buglino repairs and reconstructed a severe dog bite on the patients mouth. We absolutely love dogs, but please use caution when putting your face too near.
This patient underwent Mohs surgery to treat skin cancer on the forehead facial area. The procedure delivered immediate closure of the opening with H plasty flaps. Using the H pattern for closure allowed final scar lines to be hidden within the resting transverse line pattern. This technique also prevented distortion of the brow.
Another patient had Mohs surgery to treat skin cancer in the nasabial fold. Dr. Buglino’s advanced suturing technique was expertly placed to allow the patient to move their facial muscles during healing.
This patient had a lesion on her lower eye lid. Dr. Buglino removed the lesion with appropriate treatment for this delicate are. The patient’s eye lid healed beautifully without scarring.
A patient with a previous lipoma excision was left with a concave, hypertrophic scarring. Dr. Buglino was able to use her own body fat to reinject into the scar site to get rid of the dent-like appearance. The patient will be scheduled for follow up for scar excision and closure once full healing of fat transfer is complete.
