Is the Liposonix treatment safe? - Plastic Surgeon in Los Angeles at Kare Plastic Surgery

The united states FDA approved the liposonix treatment for unwanted pockets of fat along the waistline and abdomen.  Extensive research has shown the long term safety and efficacy of high intensity focused ultrasound for the elimination of unwanted fat on the body.  Research has shown that high intensity focused ultrasound can effectively reduce and disrupt subcutaneous fat under the skin without any damage to the overlying skin.  Liposonix is a nonsurgical and noninvasive cosmetic surgery procedure designed to eliminate fat in the abdomen and waistline, and can be performed in outpatient clinic setting with minimal anesthesia. 


In the Los Angeles area, our plastic surgery office provides consultation and performs treatment for unwanted fat using the liposonix treatment.  For those patients who wish to undergo traditional liposuction, Dr. Karamanoukian can discuss the various alternatives for liposuction and liposonix for unwanted fat.  Once the area of fat is treated with the liposonix system, the natural processes for fat elimination are stimulated on the body in order to remove disrupted fat cells. 


The most common side effect with liposonix treatment include peri treatment swelling, redness, and discomfort with posttreatment bruising, swelling and discomfort that may last for one to two weeks.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian can provide you with more information regarding the liposonix treatment in the Los Angeles area during your consultation.  If you have questions about the liposonix treatment and whether it is applicable in your specific case, please schedule a consultation with our Los Angeles plastic surgery patient care coordinator by calling 310-998-5533.
