Is it possible to revise liposuction done years ago? Plastic Surgeon in Santa Monica - Kare Plastic Surgery

Liposuction can be performed on almost any area of unwanted fat on the body.  Some areas will respond better to liposuction than others; that is why the patient should choose a board certified plastic surgeon to perform liposuction surgery.  The patients who have had previous liposuction who are now unhappy with their results can benefit from a procedure known as revision liposuction in which a micro-sculpt cannula is used to redefine and recontour unwanted fat in a specific part of the body.


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian specializes in cosmetic plastic surgery and has extensive experience in revision liposuction procedures.  He performs revision liposuction in the early postoperative period, often less than one year after an initial liposuction by another surgeon, or in the late period after liposuction in which many years are passed since the initial surgery.  Dr. Karamanoukian performs all aspect of liposuction surgery including revision liposuction, laser liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction, and micro-sculpt liposuction.  He performs liposuction procedures under local anesthesia, tumescent anesthesia, IV sedation, and general anesthesia.  All procedures are performed in an accredited operating room with a board certified anesthesiologist, if necessary.  Please call our plastic surgery patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533 to schedule your appointment for liposuction.
