Is liposonix an outpatient procedure? Los Angeles Liposuction and Liposonix

For patients who have excessive fat along the mid torso, including the abdomen and waistline, there are many options for cosmetic improvement.  Liposuction has long been the goal standard for reduction of unwanted fat along the waistline and abdomen, but now a new FDA approved procedure known as liposonix can provide patients with a nonsurgical and noninvasive option for body contouring.  Liposonix has many benefits including the fact that it requires no surgery, no incisions, no resulting scarring, and minimal recovery.  In addition, the liposuction requires no wound healing and minimal downtime.  The liposonix procedure is performed on an outpatient basis in an accredited operating room of office setting. 

The liposonix treatment is performed by administering a high intensity focused ultrasound on to the surface of the skin along the area of unwanted fat.  The liposonix system emits a high energy sound wave that is targeted towards the inner fat and use to destroy unwanted adipocytes without any damage to the surface of the skin.  The patients are typically awake during the procedure and require minimal to any recovery afterwards. Most patients will experience some discomfort, tingling and warmth along the treated areas which therein subsides after the procedure.  Within a few days there will be some mild bruising and swelling along the treated area as the body begins to absorb the treated fat.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is experienced in liposonix treatment and can provide you with many options available for safe liposonix treatment for the abdomen, waistline, and love handles.  If you are seeking to undergo lipo reduction and have had some interest in the liposonix treatment, please call our plastic surgery office in Los Angeles at 310-998-5533.
