Keloid Recovery, Los Angeles Keloid Surgery, Top Keloid Specialist, Keloid Doctor Los Angeles

Keloid surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis under a local anesthesia or IV sedation.  At times, Dr. Karamanoukian will recommend general anesthesia or complex keloid scars for keloid scars that are extremely painful or symptomatic.  The benefit of keloid surgery includes the definitive removal of the keloid scars, but there still remains a chance for recurrence.  After surgery you will have time to recover and will ultimately be discharged home with instructions to return to our plastic surgery clinic within several days of your keloid surgery.  Most patients recover well with minimal analgesic in the postoperative period. 


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is one of the leading experts in keloid surgery and scar revision and can help you determine whether keloid surgery is the appropriate treatment modality for your scar.  Dr. Karamanoukian performs scar revision procedures with laser, intralesional injection, and surgery.  Please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533 to schedule a comprehensive consultation for keloid surgery with Dr. Karamanoukian.
