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.
