You can certainly do it yourself, if you have a PTex gun, scraper, and bench upon which to do the work.

If not, drop it off at the local high-end shop and have them do a full-tune (which is what I would do, anyway!).

It depends on how big you mean when you say "big."

What I call big is best taken to a shop, unless you've got more stuff than the typical home tuner. You can fill just about any gouge with a PTex candle, but it takes multiple passes and tends not to stay in.

"Big," to means more than a little bit of core or edge (stuff that's not PTex) exposed ... possibly a really long or wide gouge, even if it doesn't expose the core.
