How does the liposonix treatment work?

For patients with unwanted fat around the waistline and abdomen, liposuction, diet, and exercise were the only choices until the FDA approved a new technique that uses high intensity focused ultrasound to melt away fat with needle-less liposuction.  The liposonix treatment uses a directed external ultrasound to gently melt away fat that is approximately 1 cm below the surface of the skin.  During this noninvasive treatment, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a board certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, will measure the area and treat the unwanted areas of fat around the waistline and abdomen using the liposonix treatment. 


By directed the high intensity focus ultrasound within the unwanted fat layer, the fat is permanently destroyed without damage to the skin or underlying tissue.  The body will naturally remove the unwanted fat and the patients will notice slight bruising and swelling followed by a reduction in unwanted fat along the treated areas.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an expert in liposonix as well as liposuction and revision liposuction.  If you have had previous liposuction in an area and are unhappy with the overall contour of the waistline and abdomen and do not want to undergo further liposuction, revision treatment with liposonix may be an option for you. 


For patients who have never had liposuction and have unwanted areas of fat along the waistline and abdomen, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office to discuss your options for liposonix treatment.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian will provide you with full details of the liposonix protocol and will help you decide whether liposuction alone or liposonix will help you achieve your desired goals.  Our Los Angeles plastic surgery patient care coordinator can facilitate your consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian by calling 310-998-5533.
