Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do when I get a cut that needs stitches?

The first step is to remain calm. Wash the wound and apply a gauze dressing.  Hold pressure until the bleeding stops. Next, pick up the phone and call 1-877 SUTURE911.  You are connected with a plastic surgeon who will meet you, when it’s convenient for you, in the comfort and convenience of our office.  Your cut or wound will be assessed and treated accordingly. It’s just that fast and simple.

Why would I choose to see a Plastic Surgeon for stitches?

Plastic surgeons are specially trained in the treatment of wounds and wound healing. Many emergency room doctors, after initially assessing a patient, will bring in a Plastic Surgeon to suture the cut or wound. Many people prefer to have a plastic surgeon stitch them up, especially kid's cuts and cuts on the face. When you elect treatment by a Plastic Surgeon, it's as easy as picking up the phone and dialing 1-877-SUTURE911. With Suture911, there is no long, stressful wait in a hectic, crowded emergency room. You can receive immediate, high-quality treatment and care from a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Where is the office located?

Dr. O'Hara’s office is located on 660 Glades Road, Suite 380, Boca Raton, Florida (View map). After regular operating hours, special appointments will be made directly with the doctor.

What is a "needle-free repair"?

In some situations, a topical anesthetic can be used to numb the surface of the wound. The wound can then be thoroughly cleaned.  A"skin glue" can be used to close the wound. The skin glue creates a barrier to bacteria and dirt. The glue slowly dissolves, eliminating the need to remove stitches. Removing stitches can be a trying experience for young children.
