Gynecomastia Surgery Santa Monica

Gynecomastia Surgery


Our Santa Monica plastic surgery office specializes in scar revision and corrective plastic surgery to repair the scarring from previous surgery. There are several corrective procedures that are often requested post-gynecomastia surgery. If you have had gynecomastia surgery by another surgeon, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian can help you regain your confidence by correcting botched results. 

Gynecomastia scars around the areola and along the inframammary folds can become hypertrophic and red, leading to raised scars that look obvious and cause pain. Our Hidef scar protocol at Kare Plastic Surgery includes laser therapy with Vbeam laser, fractional laser, and Yag laser; intralesional injection therapy; and corrective scar excision and repair. 

Revision Gynecomastia surgery is performed when there is disproportionate tissue removal, or when there is inadequate tissue removed during surgery. Dr. Karamanoukian can use a combination of areolar excision of glandular tissue, liposuction, and Coolsculpting to establish symmetry and remove excess redundant breast tissue. 


FTM Top surgery scars on the breasts and chest can be devastating to one's self-esteem. Often these scars are circumlinear and widened, leaving keloids scars, red scars, and hypertrophic scars that are visible. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian has extensive experience in the laser management of FTM Scars or the surgical excision and removal of the scars. In most cases, Dr. Karamanoukian will choose a scar regimen that combines laser therapy, scar modulation, surgical excision, and RF therapy to improve FTM Top Surgery Scars.
