Is skin excision necessary during arm liposuction? Kare Plastic Surgery in Santa Monica, CA

Body contouring with liposculpture and liposuction can dramatically improve the shape and contour of areas with unwanted fat.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian specializes in micro sculpt liposuction and the patients who have excessive fat and droopiness of the arms.  This procedure is known as arm liposuction and can be performed with mini incisions that are carefully placed in well hidden creases of the arm.  The majority of arm liposuction patients do not require skin excision or arm lift surgery.  Using tumescent liposuction and microcannulas, Dr. Karamanoukian can perform micro-sculpt liposuction in the arms to improve a disproportion of the arms to the rest of the body, or recontouring of the arms to remove and reduce the excess sagginess.  


Patients with stretch marks may also benefit from the procedure known as fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing.  Modern arm liposuction techniques employed by Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a board certified plastic surgeon can minimize scarring and can avoid the unnecessary expense and recovery with arm lift or arm skin excisions.  Tumescent liposuction is used throughout the procedure and can be combined with IV sedation, general anesthesia or local anesthesia. 


If necessary, Dr. Karamanoukian can perform arm liposuction with a board certified anesthesiologist for general anesthesia cases.  All surgeries are performed in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills in an accredited outpatient surgical facility.  Dr. Karamanoukian specializes in arm liposuction, laser liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction, and micro-sculpt liposuction.  He is available for consultation for Los Angeles residents and out of town residents.
