Facelift and Necklift Surgeon in Santa Monica


Plastic surgery expert Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian has created celebrity buzz with his latest treatment incarnation known as BeautySmack (#beautysmack), which he developed after years of incorporating technology into his practice. The facelift alternative treatment has earned him a serious following among patients, many of which travel from overseas for his innovative strategies.

You may be asking yourself what the buzz is all about…Well, to put it simply, #BeautySmack is a non-invasive, non-toxic, and super-powerful rejuvenative treatment that reduces wrinkles, tightens skin, and corrects soft tissue laxity…all without surgery. It’s basically a non-surgical alternative to a facelift or necklift, all with no downtime.

Who better to design a non-surgical alternative to a facelift than a plastic surgeon?? “I was asked what the best non-surgical options were for a facelift over dinner a few years ago…and that was what began my search for a signature treatment that I now refer to as #beautysmack,” says Dr. Karamanoukian.

The #BeautySmack treats the face and neck from the inside-out, using a proprietary protocol of radiofrequency technology to tighten soft tissue, the dermis, and the underlying structural support of the face. Using meticulous attention to biometric detail, we can selectively tighten and tone the tissue and skin to affect a desired change. “There’s nothing like it in plastic surgery,” admits Dr. Karamanoukian.

All #BeautySmack treatments start with an in-person consultation in order to tailor a customized multi-plane tissue tightening treatment for your particular needs. Depending on age, ethnicity, skin type, and severity of premature aging, Dr. Karamanoukian and his team can modulate treatment intensity.

“Our goal is to achieve noticeable and sustainable results with the procedure,” reports Physician Assistant Elizabeth Chilian. By modulating heat intensity, we can tighten skin, soft tissue, or structural matrix. The result is a noticeable improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, tissue elasticity, and fascial laxity.

Results are often seen immediately and continue to improve over time as the collagen is stimulated in the tissue. Best results are seen after several sessions that are overlapped several weeks apart.
