Male Liposuction

Dr.Raffy Karamanoukian performs male liposuction using tailored techniques that address your particular body shape.  Ultrasound, tumescent, and laser liposuction can be employed to reduce excess fat on the face and body.  If you are looking for natural results with liposuction in Los Angeles, contact our plastic surgery office at (310) 998-5533. Liposuction surgery or liposculpture can result in dramatic changes in body contour, leading to precision removal of excess fat along the neckline, chest, abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, and knees.  In addition, Dr. Karamanoukian can use some of the excess fat to augment facial hollowness in a procedure known as fat transfer or augmentation. 

VASER Lipo for men and women who desire the top liposuction treatments in Los Angeles with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian


  1. Does male liposuction leave scars on the body? Liposuction is a minimally-invasive cosmetic surgery procedure.  Incisions that are used during liposuction are usually well-hidden and carefully planned to minimize scarring and visibility.  Most scars from liposuction are inconspicuous and rarely visible once healing is complete.  If you are concerned about scarring from liposuction, you may consider using Melarase cream early in the healing process and also undergoing laser treatment after your procedure to minimize scars. 
  2. What is the typical recovery after male liposuction surgery? There are so many areas that can be contoured with male liposuction.  Neck liposuction in men has a relatively quick recovery of 48 hours in most cases, whereas larger volume areas such as the abdomen and thighs may require about a week of recovery, during which time it is ok to resume normal activities. During your consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian in his Los Angeles plastic surgery practice, he will review your pre and post-liposuction procedure expectations and recommendations.




EYELID LIFT: A very common male cosmetic plastic surgery procedure performed in our Los Angeles office is known as an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty.  An eyelid lift is performed for cosmetic reasons in order to improve droopy eyelids or as a medical procedure to improve one's field of vision if their eyelids are too heavy.  Dr. Karamanoukian performs many eyelid surgeries on men and believes that natural results are the mainstay of a well-performed blepharoplasty.  The procedure can be done in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia. 


GYNECOMASTIA (MALE BREAST REDUCTION): Adolescent and adult men may complain of excess fullness in the breast and pectoral areas, arising from a condition known as male gynecomastia.  The fullness of the breast tissue may be nodular or widespread along the chest and periareolar areas.  The excess breast tissue can usually be removed with liposuction under anesthesia using a procedure known commonly as gynecomastia surgery.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian can provide you with specific treatment plans that can address the fullness in the chest wall. 


LIP AUGMENTATION IN MEN: Men can develop hollowness around the mouth areas, particularly as a result of smoking or aging.  Genetic tendencies can lead to a decrease in lip and perioral fullness, prompting a treatment with facial fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse. 


NECK LIFT: A Neck lift can truly make you look younger and more youthful.  Our office recommends male neck lift surgery for those men who have fullness in the chin and neck area, or for those men who have vertical lines and wrinkles across their chin and neck areas. Neck lift procedures are quite commonly performed on both men and women and employ a technique known as platysmaplasty, in which the neck muscles are tightened and resuspended.
