Is liposonix a type of liposuction? Plastic Surgeon expert in Liposonix - Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian in Los Angeles

Liposuction is a less invasive cosmetic surgery procedure in which small suction assisted cannulas are used to remove excess fat through tiny incisions placed along hidden areas of the body.  Liposuction is an alternative to more invasive body contouring plastic surgery such as abdominoplasty, thigh lift, and body lift in that it minimizes incisions.  The liposonix treatment, on the other hand uses a high intensity focused ultrasound to reduce fat without the need for surgery or cutting. 


The liposonix treatment is an FDA approved procedure that has gained popularity in Europe and North America as an effective method to reduce excess fat along the upper abdomen, lower abdomen, flanks, waistline, and love handles.  As a board certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, Dr. Karamanoukian advocates cosmetic plastic surgery for body contouring in men and women who desire a more contour silhouette.  If you have questions about liposuction or liposonix treatment, please call our plastic surgery office at 310-998-5533.
