Can I go home after liposuction? Kare Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles

Liposuction is usually performed on the lower face and body area.  The most common areas to undergo liposuction on the face include the chin and neck area, in which a double chin and a full neck are usually redefined and recontoured.  On the body, typically any area of excessive fat can be successfully liposuctioned as an outpatient surgical procedure.  The most common areas include the abdomen, hips, inner thigh, and waistline.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a double board certified plastic surgeon and an expert in body contouring surgery including liposuction, revision liposuction, and Liposonix nonsurgical fat reduction. 


Of the many procedures available for liposuction and body contouring with fat removal, most procedures are performed in an outpatient surgical center under anesthesia.  The patients will soon recover after the procedure and are typically sent home with a friend of family member to begin their recovery.  Rarely, the patients will opt to go to an aftercare facility after liposuction in order to be cared by a 24-hour nurse. 


This is a more of a comfort issue rather than a safety issue.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian performs liposuction in both Santa Monica and Beverly Hills and serves the greater Los Angeles area.  If you have questions about liposuction, revision liposuction, or Liposonix nonsurgical fat reduction treatment, please call our patient care coordinator for liposuction at 310-998-5533.
