Can liposuction be performed immediately after pregnancy?

Can liposuction be performed immediately after pregnancy?


Pregnancy and childbirth can exert tremendous tolls on the female body, particularly the area on the abdomen and waistline.  Excessive stores of fat are usually hormonally sensitive and resistant to normal diet and exercise.  Metabolic activity of fat cells can determine whether a particular area of fat will go away with normal diet and exercise.  If you are having weight issues after pregnancy and cannot lose those last few pounds or inches of fat around the abdomen and waistline, liposuction is an obvious solution.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board certified Los Angeles plastic surgeon who specializes in revision liposuction and liposuction surgery.  By combining the latest advancements in liposuction techniques as well as meticulous safety protocols for operative room safety, Dr. Karamanoukian can optimize your results and maintain the youthful figure that you had prior to your pregnancy. 


The patients who have recently undergone childbirth may benefit from liposuction.  If you have had a recent pregnancy and wish to undergo liposuction, a comprehensive consultation for liposuction with Dr. Karamanoukian in his Los Angeles office can help facilitate your surgery request.  During your consultation, Dr. Karamanoukian will examine your post pregnancy abdomen and belly and determine whether you are a suitable candidate for liposuction or a nonsurgical treatment known as Liposonix.  Liposonix uses high intensity ultrasound without incisions or cutting to remove excess fat from the abdomen. 


The presence of stretch marks and laxity of skin can determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for liposuction after pregnancy.  Call 310-998-5533 and speak to our Los Angeles plastic surgery patient care coordinator regarding your liposuction alternatives.  A consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian will help determine how good of a candidate you are for tumescent liposuction or liposuction alone.
