The “Shrink-Wrap” Liposuction Technique

This revolutionary procedure, pioneered by Dr. Raffi Hovsepian, reduces one’s size by removing and melting stubborn fat, while at the same time inducing collagen retraction, skin tightening, and overall tissue shrinkage. This process safely removes fat with tiny incisions, allowing for minimal downtime, thanks to a fat-melting and skin-tightening laser technology that's been FDA-approved and provides astounding results. With Shrink-Wrap Liposuction, once the fat cells are destroyed, they're gone forever!

For larger areas of fat, and for patients who want to correct the unsightly effects of weight loss or pregnancy, Dr. Hovsepian may recommend an approach that will integrate a tummy tuck or body lift procedure for a more complete tightening of the excess skin. This enables you to address stubborn pockets of extra fat while also going that extra step to leave you looking toned and fit once the procedure is over. During your consultation, Dr. Hovsepian will talk to you about his process for liposuction in Beverly Hills and your various options.

Trusted among patients for his refined aesthetic sense and high standards of surgical accuracy, Dr. Raffi Hovsepian has a passion for achieving aesthetically pleasing results for every patient, from "straightforward" cases to some of the most challenging. In your body contouring consultation, he will take into account factors such as past weight fluctuations or multiple pregnancies, and develop a surgical plan that’s fully customized around your personal goals.

Your Liposuction in Beverly Hills


You’ll need to begin fasting about eight hours before you arrive at our Beverly Hills surgical center for your procedure, which means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water. If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.

The Procedure

At Dr. Hovsepian's clinic in Beverly Hills, liposuction is performed under general anesthesia. Your surgery will be performed as an outpatient procedure, but some patients prefer an overnight stay. Out-of-town patients may stay in a nearby aftercare facility or hotel, where a "private duty" nurse is available.

Your Recovery

The surgery itself generally takes a few hours, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas. Afterward, you will return to your home, aftercare facility, or a hotel conveniently located a short distance from the surgical center (but you will need a friend to drive you).
