Liposuction and BBL Scar Treatment

The growing popularity of liposuction has influenced the prevalence of bad liposuction scars on the abdomen, back, and arms. During the Brazilian Butt Lift, liposuction fat is removed and placed into the buttocks to improve the contour and volume of the buttocks. Liposuction scars can be dark, indented, or raised with keloid or hypertrophic scarring. There are many options to improve the quality and visibility of these  liposuction scars using lasers, RF therapy, scar modulation, and our advanced Hidef scar protocols for scarring.
Our doctors are trained in the latest advancements in laser technology and can provide you with expertise in the management of your liposuction scars. The Hidef scar revision protocol involves an initial consultation to discuss and examine your scars followed by an in-depth treatment plan that includes surgical as well as nonsurgical options to reduce the visibility of your scars.
The most common treatment plans involve the initial use of Kenalog Injections followed by a multi variate laser treatment protocol that can reduce the vascularity of your scars, the contour of raised scars, replacement of contour on indented scars, and improve the texture and color of the skin overlying the scars.
Dr. Karamanoukian can evaluate your Brazilian butt lift scars in his Los Angeles plastic surgery center located in Santa Monica. The most advanced therapies can be initiated on the day of your consultation or can be scheduled at a later time. If you are traveling from another state or country, Dr. Karamanoukian can help you coordinate your travel plans so that your therapy can be achieved with minimal downtime or inconvenience.
Liposuction scars can include keloids, hypertrophic scars, dark or discolored scars, PIH, atrophic scars, or hypervascular scars. The most effective high definition protocol must place importance on your skin type, recovery, and propensity for further scarring.
Some of the most effective scar treatments include sublative RF, vascular laser, fractional laser, Vbeam laser, skin resurfacing, ablative laser, non-ablative laser, fibrous release, fat transfer, lipocavitation, erbium laser, and clear and brilliant laser.

Self-harm Scars

Self-harm scars are marks on the skin caused by self-injury and they are quite common among teenagers and adults in the United States. There are several amazing treatments to help reduce the visibility of self-harm scars at Kare Plastic Surgery in Santa Monica. The best treatment for you will depend on the severity of your scars, your skin type, skin color, severity of scars, and textural changes in the skin.
Some of the most common treatments for self-harm scars include:
  • Laser therapy: Laser therapy can help to fade the color of scars and improve their texture.
  • Topical creams and ointments: There are a number of topical creams and ointments that can help to improve the appearance of scars. These products typically contain ingredients that help to promote collagen production and reduce inflammation. We recommend Melarase creams to help reduce hyperpigmentation of the skin when combined with exfoliants.
  • Surgical treatments: In some cases, surgical treatments may be necessary to remove or improve the appearance of self-harm scars. These treatments may include scar revision, skin grafting, or tissue expansion.
