Approach

Dr. Benjamin Paul has an extensive training in facial trauma. He is versed in the repair of lacerations (known as cuts) as well as broken bones (fractures). As a resident and fellow at Bellevue Hospital – a level one trauma center, Dr. Paul cared for countless patients who were the victim of severe facial injuries.

The goal of laceration repair and scar revision surgery is to minimize the scar, so that is more consistent with a patient’s surrounding skin tone and texture, while preserving or improving tissue function. Sometimes unavoidable after injury or surgery, Dr. Paul can correct large or unappealing scars by following skin tension lines and re-orientating the scar to align correctly.

Procedure Details
