Body Contouring

Welcome to the practice of Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian, a board certified plastic surgeon practicing in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.  Dr. Karamanoukian has built a robust practice based on his innovative approach to body contouring, facial plastic surgery, and breast surgery. He performs abdominoplasty procedures, liposuction, and is well known for his Mommy Makeover surgery which helps women regain confidence after pregnancy and childbirth. 


Body contouring is a plastic surgery subspecialty that focuses on cosmetic enhancement of the arms, legs, thighs, and waistline (abdomen).  The various procedures available through cosmetic body contouring can be performed on individuals who have lost weight (naturally or with lap band surgery), undergone pregnancy and childbirth, or simply wish to regain a more youthful body shape.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an outstanding Beverly Hills plastic surgeon and can evaluate your desires and create an individualized program that focuses on your particular body shape and desires. 


One of the most requested types of plastic surgery requested in our plastic surgery office is body contouring, in which the abdomen, back, and arms, and legs are recontoured to acheive a more slender physique.  The many types of body contouring plastic surgery procedures include the following: 

  1. Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck): Remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen. 
  2. Arm Lift (Brachioplasty): Reducing excessive skin in the upper arm.
  3. Labiaplasty or Vaginal Rejuvenation: Reducing the size and shape of the labia minora. Please note that Dr. Karamanoukian does not perform vaginoplasty to tighten the introitus, but works with a team of gynecologists who perform this complex surgery. 
  4. Liposuction
  5. Mommy Makeover
  6. Thigh Lift
  7. Liposonix Fat Reduction Treatment
