What is revision liposuction? - Raffy Karamanoukian, M.D. double board certified plastic surgeon - Los Angeles

What is revision liposuction?


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a liposuction expert in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.  Liposuction surgery is very gratifying and improves the overall contour and shape of the face and body.  Overly aggressive liposuction may lead to contour irregularities and asymmetry which may diminish the aesthetic results of your procedure.  If you have had liposuction in the past, whether recently or many years ago, there are options to restore the contour of your liposuctioned areas with simple outpatient procedure.  Dr. Karamanoukian has performed countless liposuction revisions on patients who have previously undergone liposuction with other surgeries.  The goal of therapy is to remove excess fat and contour the areas while replacing fat in areas that has been overly liposuctioned.  The determinant of the revision liposuction result includes the quality of the overlying skin. 


In some cases, revision liposuction of the abdominal wall can be corrected with a combination of a tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, scar revision, or combination of procedures in order to improve the contour of the area.  Some of the more common areas to undergo revision liposuction include the inner thighs and hips.  Dr. Karamanoukian can provide you with full detail after a careful examination in his Los Angeles office. 


Our office provides a comprehensive plastic surgery services including breast enhancement, liposuction, tummy tuck procedures, and facial rejuvenation.  As a general rule, liposuction revision is a meticulous procedure and requires a comprehensive consultation prior to scheduling surgery.  At this time, Dr. Karamanoukian will perform a complete medical history and physical examination in order to provide you with full details for your liposuction revision. Please contact our office at 310-998-5533.
