Top Surgery FTM Scar Revision Expert in Los Angeles


Top Surgery involves the surgical removal of breast tissue for the purpose of gender transition. The surgical incisions used for top surgery vary from surgeon to surgeon, but focus on the removal of excess skin and fat from the breasts. The development of hypertrophic or keloid scars from Top Surgery may necessitate the expertise of board certified plastic surgeon and scar expert, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian. During your consultation, he will examine your scars to determine whether the best scar revision techniques are surgical, laser-based, or injection-based. Often, a combination approach may be required to achieve maximal gain. 

Among the lasers used for Top Surgery Scar Revision include Vbeam laser, Fractional CO2, Venus Viva RF, Halo, Q Switch, Erbium laser, and IPL. Injection based scar revision options include intralesional injections of Kenalog to mitigate scar formation.
