Tummy Tuck Revision in Los Angeles

Revising a Tummy Tuck Scar
One of the key components of a successful tummy tuck procedure is the visibility of the bikini-line scar. In patients who have clearly visible scars, the incision-line may have been placed too high; making it difficult to cover the incision with a two-piece bikini or low-waisted pair of jeans. 
Tummy tuck revision is a good option for patients who have visible scars after an abdominoplasty. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian performs tummy tuck revision to reposition the incision line, to re-tighten the muscle fascia, and to recreate the belly button after tummy tucks. Most procedures are performed as an outpatient surgical treatment for those patients who want to revise a botched tummy tuck. 
In some cases, non-surgical revision of a tummy tuck scar can be performed using lasers and RF. Dr. Karamanoukian specializes in Hidef scar revision after tummy tuck surgery, using a combination of ablative laser, non-ablative laser, RF, and scar modulation. 
If you have had a tummy tuck procedure and are now unhappy with the results of your scars, schedule a consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian in his Los Angeles plastic surgery office. During your consultation, he will discuss surgical and non-surgical options to correct scars after tummy tuck surgery.
