In brief: Depends

Laceration repair depends upon the location, depth, risk to underlying structures and risk of infection.
Function is the most important outcome aimed for, followed by cosmesis. Other than simple punctures or small lacerations ( is your tetanus up to date?) you should go to an er or a surgeon for repair and evaluation of deeper damage.
