Corrective Plastic Surgery LA


Results from lasers and cosmetic plastic surgery sometimes may not be as expected. Even in the best of hands, surgical results may lead to hypertrophic scarring and less-than-ideal results. If you feel that your results can be improved, you may want to consider a revision plastic surgery procedure with an expert in the field. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian specializes in corrective plastic surgery to repair botched surgery results.


Scar revision is one of the most common reasons why patients present to our clinic for evaluation by Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian. Surgical scars may become hypertrophic, keloid, or overgrown, leading to an unsightly appearance of the incision lines used during surgery. Our office is equipped with the latest advancements in scar modulation and scar revision using lasers, RF, topical therapy, and surgical techniques. Further, Dr. Karamanoukian is a specialist in keloid and hypertrophic scar revision protocols that can improve overgrown and hyperactive scars.


A Brazilian Buttock Lift is a commonly performed procedure that usually entails liposuction removal of fat from the body with transfer to the buttocks. If complications arise in the recovery phase of a BBL, patients may develop irregular liposuction contour in the skin and soft tissue, liposuction scars, asymmetry, uneven fat deposits, and unsatisfactory buttock enhancement. Most commonly, patients will complain of noticeable liposuction scars that prompt correction. 


Liposuction requires meticulous attention to detail in every regard. Liposuction scars, liposuction contour irregularities, uneven soft tissue and skin, and asymmetry can all be corrected or improved with liposuction revision. Treatment options include liposculpture, fat lipolysis, fibrous release, fat grafting and transfer, more liposuction, laser liposuction, scar correction, and multiplane tissue tightening.
