Facial laceration

Hello and thank you for your question- 

The laceration will leave a scar- there's no way around that. The scar will be minimized if it was closed by an experienced surgeon who focuses of soft tissue handling and minimizing scarring. 

- the suture there should not stay in for longer than 1 week or more scarring will result

hope this helps and God Bless!
