How long is recovery after Liposonix treatment? Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian - Double Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

The main objective of a liposonix treatment is to reduce underlying fat deposits along the waistline, abdomen, and flanks.  The treatment utilizes high intensity focused ultrasound that can directly target unwanted fat underneath the skin, causing the fat cells to be permanently disrupted and eliminated.  Unlike, liposuction and tummy tuck procedures, the liposonix treatment requires no cutting and no incision.  Recovery after liposonix treatment is significantly less than with liposuction or a tummy tuck procedure.  Most patients will experience one to two weeks of bruising and swelling that gradually subsides with the administration of a Bruise Pak, including Bromaline and Arnica supplement. 


The typical downtime with liposonix procedures is one to two weeks with patients resuming normal activity within several days of their procedure.  If you have questions about liposonix treatment and whether it is an appropriate option for fat reduction along the waist line and abdomen, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office at 310-998-5533.  Our patient care coordinator can discuss your specific options for liposonix and help you decide whether it is an appropriate option in your case.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian also performs all aspect of cosmetic plastic surgery including liposuction, revision liposuction, liposculpture, tumescent liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction, and laser liposuction.
