Can I travel after liposuction? Los Angeles liposuction expert for out of town patients

Can I travel after liposuction?


Liposuction surgery can be performed as a simple clinic procedure for small areas or a definitive larger procedure for broad areas of the body.  These different types of liposuction procedures vary in terms of overall complexity and need for anesthetics.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon and an expert in liposuction surgery in the Los Angles area.


Being in a cosmopolitan city, there are many international and out of state travelers who wish to undergo liposuction in our office.  These patients may benefit from an initial online consultation prior to their arrival with Dr. Karamanoukian.  In doing so, specific indications can be addressed during your consultation.  This will help our office plan your arrival and can help facilitate the overall experience before and after surgery.  Liposuction is an ideal body contouring procedure that can redefine your aesthetic proportions and improve the skin and fat layer along the hips, thighs, abdomen, arms, and waistline.  After surgery, Dr. Karamanoukian will determine whether an immediate follow up is necessary prior to your departure. 


Most cases of liposuction will require a routine followup visit in which Dr. Karamanoukian will address all aspects of your postoperative recovery and allow you to travel back to your state or country of origin.  Dr. Karamanoukian and his staff are knowledgeable about out of town patients and can maximize the level of safety with these procedures.  Please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office at 310-998-5533 to speak to our surgical coordinator regarding your specific options.  We often see patients from the Middle East and Asia, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Bahrain.
