What can I do for a bellybutton keloid from liposuction? Los Angeles Top Keloid Surgeon


What can I do for a bellybutton keloid from liposuction?


The patients who undergo liposuction of the abdomen and flanks may often require an incision that is placed in the bellybutton area.  In addition, people who have undergone laparoscopic surgery or gynecologic surgery may also have an incision placed in their bellybutton.  For those patients, bellybutton scars can become thickened and raised and may have an overall unsightly appearance that can be bothersome and uncomfortable.  Bellybutton scars can become more noticeable after pregnancy or revision surgery.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is the scar expert in the United States and can modify or revive your scar in order to improve the aesthetic appearance of the bellybutton and the surrounding scars.  Laparoscopic, liposuction, or abdominal surgery scars can be dramatically improved with a combination of conservative measures including laser scar revision, intralesional scar therapy, surgical scar removal, and laser ablation or scars. 

If you have questions about bellybutton scars or wish to have bellybutton scar removed or revised, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office at 310-998-5533 and speak to one of our patient care coordinators regarding your surgical and nonsurgical options for scar revision.
