Posted by Aaeesha on February 21st, 2015
Accidents are unavoidable and they can happen at any time of the night or day. Some wounds might require a little more attention than simple first aid. Therefore you may need to seek emergency help in order to get simple sutures done that will facilitate the healing process. Suturing a wound helps to stop excessive bleeding, aids in new skin formation thereby healing the wound. Sutures and/or staples are also commonly used after surgical procedures in order to hold body tissues together.
