Breast Lift Scar Revision: Los Angeles


Breast scars often require revision or correction as a result of the way the skin and soft tissue of the breast changes after surgery. Whether you have had breast augmentation, mastopexy, or a previous surgical biopsy of the breast, newer combination procedures can dramatically improve the contour of the breast.

 

  1. Are there options for breast scar revision?  There are many different types of breast scars that can be used for medically necessary or cosmetic surgery.  Breast scars are often noticed after breast lift surgery, breast reduction surgery, breast augmentation surgery, and mastopexy or lumpectomy surgery.  Although many patients choose to ignore their breast scars, plastic surgeons usually find that treating the breast scar is an empowering outpatient minor procedure for most women who are affected by cosmetically unappealing breast scars.  In some cases intervention for breast scar is appropriate to minimize keloid scarring and hypertrophic scaring as the breast scars started to widen and progress.  Many years ago, the only options for scar revision were surgical excision of the scar followed by post scar revision management with observation.  Modern scar breast scar revision includes laser skin resurfacing, vascular laser treatment for breast scars, IIT, intralesional injection, pressure management, silicone scar creams, topical creams for pigmentation such as the Melaquin AM and Melaquin PM Skin Brightening Complex and surgery.  All types of breast scars can be improved dramatically with scar resurfacing treatment and scar revision.
  2. How do I know if I am a candidate for breast scar revision?  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a double board certified plastic surgeon specializing in facial cosmetic surgery, breast enhancement surgery, and body contouring surgery.  He performs all aspects of cosmetic plastic surgery, including breast enhancement and breast scar revision.  During your initial consultation for scar revision in his Los Angeles plastic surgery office, Dr. Karamanoukian will evaluate your breast scar to determine whether they represent a normal process of healing or whether they require early intervention.  The consultation will include an assessment of scar quality, texture, redness, and density in order to determine which particular laser type or nonsurgical treatment can be used for scar improvement.  If nonsurgical means are not favorable, Dr. Karamanoukian will recommend a minor outpatient procedure known as scar revision in order to improve the quality of areolar scars, breast scars, breast lift scars, or breast reduction scars.
  3. What is laser scar treatment used for breast?  Laser skin resurfacing has become one of the leading treatments for nonsurgical scar revision.  By using ablative fractional CO2 laser, Dr. Karamanoukian can resurface and retexturize the scar in order to make it more closely resemble the surrounding breast tissue.  This is usually optimal for stretch mark scars, operative scars, and cosmetic plastic surgery scars of the breast including breast lift, breast augmentation, and breast reduction.  The fractional CO2 laser is used to camouflage the scar to reduce its textural changes in order to improve their appearance.
  4. How much downtime is associated with breast scar revision?  Breast scar revision is typically an outpatient procedure that takes less than one hour to perform.  Dr. Karamanoukian performs these procedures in an outpatient surgical suite under local anesthesia in the majority of cases.  If more complex scar revision is required or breast scar revision combined with breast implant or breast lift revision, a general anesthesia or IV sedation type procedure may be recommended.  Dr. Karamanoukian works along side several board certified anesthesiologists who are familiar and experienced in cosmetic plastic surgery.  These anesthesiologists will administer the anesthesia alongside Dr. Karamanoukian during the procedure.During local anesthetic procedures, the patients are able to drive home themselves or return to normal daily activities.
  5. Should I undergo early or late breast scar revision?  This is always a common question that is asked regarding breast scar revision.  The patients can request breast scar revision early in the development of scar or years after its initial development.  In either case, Dr. Karamanoukian will recommend an aggressive scar revision protocol that maximizes the long term outcome of your breast surgery scar.
  6. How can I schedule a consultation for breast scar revision? The first step in undergoing breast scar revision with laser intralesional injection, IIT, or scar revision begins with a thorough consultation with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian.  During a consultation, Dr. Karamanoukian will perform a physical examination and determine which scar revision modality is appropriate for your particular case.  During the procedure, you will also be provided the opportunity to discuss the cosmetic appearance of your breast to determine whether additional breast revision surgery is appropriate during your procedure.  Many patients will request breast scar revision in addition to revision of their breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction.  If this is necessary, Dr. Karamanoukian will provide you with full details regarding the surgical plan and overall recovery.  Please call our Los Angeles patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533 to schedule your comprehensive consultation for breast scar revision.
