Chin and Neck Liposuction in Santa Monica - Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Neck liposuction for double chin.


As we age our neck loses refinement in contour along the jawline and chin areas.  Unwanted fatty deposits may lead to a more bulky neck that some may call a double chin, which causes wrinkling and bulging when the neck is flexed.  Patients with a double chin or excessive fat along the chin and neck area are candidates for liposuction to improve the overall contour of the neck.


The neck area is an important area of concern in cosmetic plastic surgery.  Excessive fat and loss of skin resiliency along the neck area can lead to an unesthetic appearance which may lead to premature aging.  These areas of unwanted fat can be improved dramatically with a one hour procedure under local anesthesia.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian at Kare Plastic Surgery is a trusted expert in microsculpt liposuction and tumescent liposuction in these areas.  He performs a minimally invasive procedure to refine the neckline and jawline in patients who have excessive fat along these areas.


During your consultation for chin and neck liposuction, Dr. Karamanoukian will carefully examine the amount of skin elasticity and the amount of excessive fat in order to plan an outpatient procedure to refine the neckline.  In most cases, general anesthesia is not required for chin and neck liposuction and patients do extremely well with local tumescent anesthetic. 


Recovery is relatively quick with patients returning to normal activities the same day of surgery with some minor bruising and swelling along the area.  Refinements in liposuction techniques over the last decade have dramatically improved recovery and results with liposuction. 


Dr. Karamanoukian has extensive experience in all types of liposuction including VASER liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction, traditional liposuction, microsculpt liposuction, and tumescent liposuction.  With these techniques, it is possible to refine the jaw and neckline in most patients.  Some patients who request a neck-lift procedure may actually benefit from a smaller and less invasive procedure such as neck liposuction.  Our offices are located in Santa Monica and Dr. Karamanoukian performs surgery in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.  He serves the areas of greater Los Angeles and is available for consultation for neck liposuction and also body liposuction.  Please call our office at 310-998-5533 to schedule a consultation for neck rejuvenation with chin and neck liposuction.

Necklift and Facelift Surgeon in Santa Monica:


A necklift procedure has several variations, many of which can improve skin tone, skin laxity, and muscle laxity in the neckline and jawline.  Excessive neck skin is often removed and recontoured on the neck and jaw areas during a necklift and facelift procedure.  If there is excess skin, much of the skin can be redistributed and naturally recontoured during your necklift procedure.  If there is too much laxity of the skin, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian may perform a combination of facelift and necklift to remove the excess skin from the face and neck areas.  In doing so, the jawline, neckline, and face can be dramatically improved and highlighted. 


The goal of a necklift surgery is to restore the natural look of your face without changing any facial proportions that make them look natural.  Patients with excessive fat, skin laxity, and a diminished jawline and neckline contours may benefit from a necklift procedure.  Please call our office at (310) 998-5533 to schedule a consultation for necklift surgery in Los Angeles with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian.  Dr. Karamanoukian is a trusted expert in necklift surgery and performs outpatient plastic surgery in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.

Facial contouring with liposuction, refinement of the neck and jowls.

Neck liposuction is used to contour the central neck, chin, jowls, and lateral neck.  Most people referred to these areas as a double chin.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a double board certified plastic surgeon in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills and provides treatment in the greater Los Angeles area.  The patients who request neck liposuction will present with prominent facial jowls and a rounded jawline that overshadows the neck.  Jowls located above the jawline are usually lateral to the nasolabial fold and smile lines.  As with a facelift or neck-lift, it is possible to address the jowls through micro-liposuction.  This technique allows for meticulous refinement and contouring of the jowls in relation to the medial jawline.  The correction of jowling complements facial contouring procedures and provides patients with an effective strategy to improve facial proportion.  There are now many options to refine the face with minimally invasive and less invasive surgical procedures.  In addition to neck liposuction and microscope liposuction of the neck, the patients can fractional CO2 laser resurfacing to remove unwanted deep winkles and improve the overall skin texture. 


Fractional CO2 laser is an effective nonsurgical treatment for patients who do not wish to undergo a neck-lift or facelift procedure. Contact Kare Plastic Surgery to schedule an appointment today with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian. (310) 998-5533

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.

Neck Rejuvenation in Los Angeles


Neck rejuvenation is fast becoming one of the most common cosmetic procedures on the face.  With age the neck muscles lose tone and the skin begins to lose resiliency causing a laxity of the neck and jawline.  For women who have increased neck laxity, a mini necklift or necklift procedure can reinvigorate the neck and jawline and restore the youthfulness of the face.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in minimally invasive neck rejuvenation and necklift.  Dr. Karamanoukian uses a combination laser necklift and surgical necklift to restore the jawline, neckline and chin area. 


A revolutionary non-surgical alternative to a traditional necklift or mini neck lift is a procedure known as Ultherapy, which uses microfocused ultrasound energy to target the supporting collagen lattice that supports the neck.  Microfocused Ulthera energy can stimulate collagen formation and tighten and smoothe the neck and jawline areas.

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.
