What can I do for bad face lift scars? Face lift plastic surgeon in Los Angeles

What can I do for bad face lift scars?


A face lift procedure is commonly performed for cosmetic reasons in patients who have skin laxity and loss of fascial support along their cheeks and face.  Although a face lift uses concealed incision that are placed in front of and behind the ears, normal tissue responses can cause thickening of these scars and lead to a condition known as hypertrophic scarring.  This undo response to scar growth can cause thickening and pain along the areas in front of the ear and behind the ear.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an expert in face lift scar revision and revision face lift surgery for patients who have thickened scars and keloid scars resulting from a face lift procedure, neck lift procedure, or combination face lift and neck lift.  Thickened scars can also appear as a result of thyroid surgery, neck surgery, or facial surgery.  If you are concerned about your face lift scars, now may be the time to consult with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a Los Angeles board certified plastic surgeon specializing in scar revision and cosmetic plastic surgery.  Using a combination of laser, IIT, and minor surgery, these scars can be revised and the full benefit of your face lift is achieved.


Dr. Karamanoukian also specializes in revision face lift surgery for those patients who have undergone a cosmetic facial procedure and are unhappy with a tightened or unnatural appearance.  Revision face lift can be performed for those who have undergone and executive face lift, a lifestyle or minimal downtime face lift, or a weakened face lift.  For those patients who have undergone a previous face lift and neck lift years ago and request additional tightening or pulling of the area, a revision face lift can help achieve this cosmetic goal.  Dr. Karamanoukian performs cosmetic plastic surgery in both Santa Monica and Beverly Hills and is available for consultation by calling our Los Angeles patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533.
