Deep lacerations or cuts may require surgery to determine any damage to muscle, tendons, nerves, blood vessels or bone.

Overview

Your doctor may recommend a preventative tetanus shot or X-rays to reveal any foreign matter. They also may close your cut with wound tape, adhesive, stitches or staples to reduce scarring. They may recommend plastic surgery if your wound is severe.
