What scars are used for periumbilical liposuction? Santa Monica Plastic Surgery - Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian

The umbilical and central abdomen areas are often the target for liposuction.  In most cases, both men and women will have a residual pocket of fat around the bellybutton that remains resistant to normal diet and exercise.

Often the periumbilical and peri bellybutton area is more hormonally sensitive and less metabolically active than other areas of fat.  Despite diet and exercise, the patients often complain of a residual fullness around the mid abdomen and around the bellybutton.

The patients who wish to undergo liposuction around the umbilical area and central abdomen may benefit from a hidden incision placed carefully within the bellybutton.  This incision requires one small stitch and can effectively be used to remove excess fat from the central abdomen.  During your consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian, he will describe the many options for contouring and liposuction surgery, including liposuction of the central abdomen and peri bellybutton area.  Please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office at 310-998-5533 and speak to our plastic surgery patient care coordinator to schedule an appointment.  Most incisions will heal within days of the procedure and carry no lifelong risk or visible scarring.
