Diet and exercise alone are not always enough to get the body you want. Sometimes, localized fat deposits can create unwanted bulges or a disproportionate appearance. Dr. Kerendian, our Los Angeles liposuction surgeon, offers liposuction, to remove these diet-resistant fat deposits and help you create your desired silhouette.
Also known as body contouring surgery, liposuction is commonly used to remove pockets of fat from the thighs, calves, buttocks, hips, love handles, saddle bags, ankles, back, arms, neck, and breasts. It can be used alone or with other procedures to shape and sculpt your body. Often considered one of the safest cosmetic procedures available today, liposuction is also extremely popular. Dr. Kerendian, our expert in liposuction in Los Angeles, can help you decide if liposuction is right for you.

Dr. Kerendian, our Los Angeles liposuction surgeon, will perform a physical exam to identify the areas of concern and will ask you about your goals. We will create a diagram of the specific treatment areas and explain the treatment process. You may have a choice of one or several procedures or techniques. Dr. Kerendian will explain each option to you so that you can make the best choice for your situation.
Incisions tend to be small, so scars will also be small. In most cases, liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis. You may have tubes placed to drain fluids. The incisions may leak for a few days. You will also need to wear specially designed compression garments for a few weeks as your body heals. Dr. Kerendian, our expert in liposuction in Los Angeles, may prescribe medication to ease discomfort or reduce the risk of complications.
