Smart Lipo and CO2 Laser for Stretch Marks - Los Angeles, CA

Excellent Doctor and very caring. I had Smart lipo...

Excellent Doctor and very caring. I had Smart lipo last year around February 2012 and I am very pleased with the result. Just 4 small tiny incisions around abdomen area to remove fat cells by using smart lipo and the pain after the procedure was very tolerable.

After few months, a CO2 laser used to reduce stretch marks. This was very effective. It tightened the abdomen while shrinking the stretch marks. I was able to avoid large abdominal incision from a tummy tuck procedure. Thanks to Dr. Karamanoukian.


I had smart lipo on my tummy and flanks Friday March 22nd. I am supposed to have the co2 laser on my stretchmarks and scars from lipo. I have quiet a few stretchmarks from pregnancy on my lower tummy and belly button area. Can you tell me if you had all of your tummy done and what the recovery time / results were? Thank you :)
