C-section Scar Revision Mommy Makeover in Santa Monica

In the last two decades, c-sections have become increasingly common. A percentage of c-sections are elective, whereas others are done in an emergency-setting with less priorities placed on the position and overall cosmetic appearance of the ensuing c-section scar. Los Angeles plastic surgeon and body sculpting expert Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian advises women who have visible c-section scars to consider his carefully curated approach to surgical and non-surgical c-section scar revision.
Common problems with c-section scars include hypertrophic scarring, keloid scarring, retraction of the skin, skin sag, a flopping over of the upper part of the scar, uneven fat contour, and asymmetry. Scars that are thick, raised, and red can often be improved with non-surgical options.  
The reasons for poor scarring from a c-section may be due to a combination of genetics, poor wound healing, wound dehiscence, infection, and incomplete repair of the fascial layer during surgery. These problems can lead to visible scars that can be improved as part of a mommy makeover procedure or alone as a scar revision.
