Liposuction Surgery Los Angeles

Does liposuction cause significant scarring?


Liposuction treatment can be performed for cosmetic reasons to reduce excess fat deposits on any part of the body.  The most common areas to undergo liposuction are the chin and neck area, arm, midline torso, and abdomen, flanks, legs, and thighs.  Liposuction scars are usually very small and tend to hyperpigment for a few months before they resolve.  Dr. Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon and an expert in liposuction and micro-sculpt liposuction procedures and can help you minimize your risk for surgical scaring after the procedure.


Often, the patients who ask whether there is internal subcutaneous scarring with liposuction and it is believed that the induction of collagen formation within the subcutaneous tissue helps shrink the tissue and skin in order to contract and minimize skin laxity along the area of liposuction.  If you have questions about liposuction and wish to minimize your scarring potential, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office and speak to one of our patient care coordinators regarding a liposuction consult with Dr. Karamanoukian.
