Santa Monica Microsculpt Liposuction - Kare Plastic Surgery; Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian

Learn More About Microsculpt Liposuction


Microsculpt liposuction is an effective procedure to remove small areas of unwanted fat from the body.  Not everyone needs to undergo an extensive liposuction procedure under general anesthesia, and that is one big reason Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian offers Microsculpt liposuction to his patients.


Microsculpt liposuction can treat small areas of excessive fat from the inner thighs, bra areas, underarms, chin and neck, and knees.  The techniques used are similar to tumescent liposuction, however, the incisions are smaller and the cannulas used are slightly thinner.  The benefits of Microsculpt liposuction by Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a double board certified plastic surgeon in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills, is the quick recovery and minimal downtime. 


Both men and women are candidates for Microsculpt liposuction and it is not a means of weight loss, but rather, a method for body sculpting.  One of the most prominent areas to undergo Microsculpt liposuction is in the area of the chin and neck. Patients who request Microsculpt liposuction with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian should call our office at (310) 998-5533 to schedule a comprehensive appointment. 

Neck liposuction in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and Beverly Hills -Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, MD.

The neck is prone to fat deposits, which lead to a problem known as a double chin.  A double chin is a early sign of premature aging and can affect the areas of the neck, the chin, the jawline, and the face altogether.  Neck liposuction in Los Angles is an effective treatment for contouring the chin and neck area and restoring a normal facial contour to the jawline, chin, and neck areas.


Patients who are concerned about the chin and neck line can schedule a consultation with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian for neck liposuction.  Dr. Karamanoukian performs neck liposuction in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and Beverly Hills.  The goal of neck liposuction is to restore a more youthful look to the neck area and to define the angles of the jaw and neck areas.  The result is a smoother profile with delineation of the jaw bone and chin area.


As with any surgical procedure, neck liposuction in Los Angeles requires a preoperative consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon.  Dr. Karamanoukian will perform an examination and determine your eligibility for traditional liposuction, microsculpt liposuction, and laser assisted liposuction.  If you are an appropriate candidate, Dr. Karamanoukian will recommend an outpatient liposuction procedure to recontour the neck and chin areas.


During the procedure, Dr. Karamanoukian will mark the areas together with you in front of the mirror and delineate the incision sites which are extremely small and hidden from normal view.  During the procedure, a small cannula will be used to remove the unwanted fat deposit along the jowl area, jawline, neck, and chin.  The small incisions will then be closed with tiny sutures and covered with Steri-Strips.


Although neck liposuction is a surgical procedure, it is routinely an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia in addition to tumescent anesthesia.  Recovery is relatively quick with patients who are performing normal activities within hours after the procedure.  The neck liposuction treatment often requires 24 hours less strenuous activity with avoidance of exercise and aerobic activity.  Within days the bruising and swelling will disappear and a new youthful neck and jawline will reappear.  To schedule a consultation with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a board certified plastic surgeon and expert liposuction surgeon, please schedule a consultation.

When can I return to work after chin and neck liposuction? Plastic Surgeon in Los Angeles - Raffy Karamanoukian, MD

The chin, jawline, and neck areas are prone to develop excessive fat deposits that may obliterate the natural contours and sharpness of the jawline and chin.  These excessive fat deposits can cause significant changes in the lower face and can be minimized with a less invasive surgical procedure known as chin and neck liposuction.  Neck liposuction incorporates small incisions carefully placed behind the ear and under the chin that are approximately two to three millimeters in length.  Using these small incisions, a liposuction canula is used to remove the excess fat that is harbored above the platysma muscle of the neck. 


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a specialist in sculpting the chin and neck areas to achieve a more natural and attractive silhouette of the face.  Recovery after chin and neck liposuction deoebds on the complexity of the surgery and the native bruising tendency of the patient.  Most patients for neck liposuction in our Los Angeles plastic surgery office return to normal activities, including work, within two to three days after their surgery.  Recovery times vary for cosmetic plastic surgery as Dr. Karamanoukian is a specialist in facial cosmetic surgery and body contouring.  During your consultation in our Los Angeles plastic surgery office, you will be able to discuss your concerns and questions with Dr. Karamanoukian and his staff in full detail.  Please call 310-998-5533 to schedule your consultation for chin and neck liposuction in Santa Monica or Beverly Hills.
