How an Oral Surgeon Can Repair a Torn Lip

Posted on 5/23/2018 by Palisades Surgical Arts
Torn Lip Palisades Surgical Arts CA 90272Your lip can tear or tip for any number of reasons. When that happens, it is important you speak with someone able to help repair the tear. Your lip is not likely to heal properly on its own, and there is a very high likelihood of your lip becoming infected if left untreated.

You need to come in for an exam as close to the injury as possible, so our experienced oral surgeons can help relieve your pain. Here are a few things to expect when you suffer from a ripped lip.

Torn Lip Repair Can Help You Feel Better

We understand that you will likely have some pain when you come in. We will do our best to numb up the area to help ease your pain. We will examine the tear and see what we can do to help bring the sections of skin back together.

Typically, we will use stitches that dissolve on their own when repairing a torn lip. That way, you will not need to come in to have the stitches removed. Once we are done stitching up the area, we will likely give you some antibiotics and possibly some pain medication as well. Once your lip heals, it should look very similar to what it looked like before the injury occurred.

We will also make sure you go home with the instructions on how to best care for the injury as it heals. You need to make sure you keep the entire area clean, so follow the instructions carefully. If you have any questions along the way, please reach out to us.

Having a torn lip is no fun, but it can be something you recover from with ease. We are here to help in any way that we can, so call if anything feels out of the ordinary, or if you experience any unusual pain or bleeding after we repair the lip.
