Is there any downtime with Liposonix treatment? - Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian in Los Angeles- Expert in liposonix

The liposonix treatment is used to permanently eliminate fat from unwanted areas of the waistline and flanks.  It is known as a fat reduction technique that requires no surgery and no incisions.  Body fat removal can be permanently achieved with the liposonix treatment as an alternative to liposuction and tummy tuck surgery.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in body contouring and breast enhancement surgery.  During your initial consultation, Dr. Karamanoukian will perform body metric measurements to determine your candidacy for liposonix treatment versus liposuction.  After this is completed, the liposonix treatment is performed as an outpatient nonsurgical procedure to remove excess bulging around the waist and along the upper and lower abdomen. 


This targeted weight loss technique has minimal downtime and recovery and patients are able to resume normal activities within 24 hours of the procedure.  During treatment, the patient may experience some discomfort, pain, tingling, warmth, and coolness along the skin and fat layer.  The patients will then undergo a short period of redness, bruising, and swelling that will normally subside within days.  The benefit of liposonix treatment over liposuction and tummy tuck surgery is the reduced downtime and the absence of any cutting or wound healing.  Please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533 to schedule a comprehensive consultation for liposonix treatment or body contouring surgery in the Los Angeles area.  Dr. Karamanoukian is available in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills and can provide you with expertise in body contouring.
