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
