Procedure Details

This child and his family came to our plastic surgery office in the heart of Northern Virginia looking for immediate attention in regards to a nasty laceration after a dog attack. Dog bites are not uncommon injuries for children to sustain, and if treated properly can heal with minimal to no scarring. Dr. Mountcastle took him in promptly to treat the laceration and as you might see from the after photos, our young patient's ear looks like-new! He was given 10-15 stitches to close up the open laceration. The after picture was taken 10 days post treatment. Due to the age of the patient healing time is much shorter!
