Tumescent Liposuction Doctor in Los Angeles - Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Board Certified

There are different types of liposuction techniques, but the most unifying theme among all of the liposuction types is the use of tumescent anesthesia with or without general anesthesia.  Tumescent technique involves the infiltration of anesthetic fluid and epinephrine into the area to be liposuctioned. The anesthetic fluid provides numbing to the area, whereas the epinephrine vasoconstricts blood vessels, thus leading to decreased blood loss during surgery.  Tumescent technique is employed by Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian during liposuction in order to improve results and minimize risks during liposuction.


Common areas of liposuction include the chin and neck, chest, flanks, abdomen, back, buttocks, inner thighs, and outer hips.  Treatment with liposuction is designed to diminish areas that contain excess fat deposits that are not amenable to diet and exercise.
