Differences In Handling Of Suture Wounds By General Practitioners And Plastic Surgeons?
Good morning. I want to ask, is there a difference if the wound is sewn by a general practitioner and the wound is sewn by a plastic surgeon? especially if there are wounds in the face area. thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Each doctor certainly has its own specialties that are obtained from a comprehensive educational process is not a moment.
The ability to sew a wound is one of the basic competencies that must be possessed by a doctor. Therefore, the procedure of suturing the wound, including wounds on the facial area, can actually be done by all doctors, including general practitioners and plastic surgeons. The results of this action should be the same. With proper treatment, both by general practitioners and plastic surgeons, injuries to the skin can be handled properly so that the risk of wound expansion, bleeding, infection, and so on can be minimized.
However, specifically for wounds in indeed you will often be advised to consult directly with a specialist plastic surgeon. Therefore, the act of suturing the wound is certainly not without side effects. In addition to the possibility of infection or bleeding, facial skin sores that are performed with less neat procedures also have the risk of leaving annoying scars. Because this facial area can be easily observed by other people, the presence of this scar can certainly make the sufferer uncomfortable and can decrease his self-confidence considerably. By being handled directly by a plastic surgeon, the risk of side effects, including disturbing scars, can be prevented and handled properly.
But again, specialization alone certainly cannot guarantee the outcome of whose actions will be better later. This also returns to the competence of each doctor, which can vary greatly, depending also on the experience and expertise in carrying out their expertise. Post-suture wound care and your general health condition will also affect the results of suturing on your facial skin later. Therefore, you should consult directly with the nearest doctor regarding the best treatment for your injury, okay?
I hope this helps.
