Keeping Your Legs Looking Beautiful
A Conversation with Plastic Surgeon Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian

Keeping your legs looking sexy is a lifelong process. Over time, the skin on the legs can age, resulting in sunspots, dark scars, cellulite, and loose skin. We talked to plastic surgeon and skin guru Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian about the latest treatments to keep your legs looking youthful and sexy. Dr. Karamanoukian practices plastic surgery in sunny Santa Monica Beach in Los Angeles. Here’s the scoop...

Keeping Your Legs Looking Beautiful


The legs can develop dark spots and discoloration as a result of shaving, folliculitis, skin trauma, and even insect bites. If you live in hotter climates, insect bites are a major skin concern. Dark leg scars occur when insect bites lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration. Treatments include laser therapy with micro-fractional ablation, light chemical peels, and daily application of Luminase and Exfolase creams as part of the Kareskin Body Brightening Kit. Luminase and Exfolase work to exfoliate and lighten dark body discoloration, particularly on the legs and thighs.


Sun exposure and aging can cause the skin on the legs and thighs to become less resilient, leading to sagging and loose skin. Dr. Karamanoukian uses a combination of multi-plane tissue tightening with RF energy, fractional laser, and application of Exfolase body lotion with Replenish retinoid cream. The combination modality is excellent in stimulating collagen production and retraction. The development of laser and RF has now supplanted more invasive surgical treatments for loose skin on the legs and thighs.


Cellulite is prevalent in all women of child-bearing age, regardless of the amount of body fat. Cellulite is caused by dermofascial collagen fibers that pull the skin down, leading to the characteristic dimpling and lumpiness of the skin. When asked about methods to improve cellulite on the buttocks and thighs, Dr. Karamanoukian recommends the Braziian Cellulite Treatment that he developed to improve the contour of the skin.

    Women are under a lot of pressure to look perfect these days and sometimes it feels like it is not easily achievable. However, we live in the modern era where you can change whatever brings you down. I’ve struggled with unwanted cellulite and fat for a while until I decided to seek professional help. I decided to try 3d liposuction in Perth
    I’m thrilled with the results and I can say that I got my confidence back and I’m ready to rock shorts and bodycon dresses this season.
