Can Abdominal Sculpting With VASER Give You Washboard Abs?

By: Dr. J. Timothy Katzen


Without a doubt, six-pack abs are one of the most sought-after features in the health and fitness community. From magazine covers to social media, washboard abs are everywhere and have become synonymous with being sexy and in shape. However, for many men and women, achieving well-defined abs can be difficult – if not impossible – with traditional diet and exercise alone. Internationally recognized plastic surgeon Dr. J. Timothy Katzen and the expert team at J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills are proud to offer the highly advanced VASER ab sculpting system to help patients finally achieve the toned, distinctive, washboard abs they have always wanted.

Why can’t I get a six-pack?

Six-pack abs are characterized by the definition that separates the individual abdominal muscles. Many men and women spend countless hours in the gym toning and strengthening their muscles without ever achieving a well-defined midsection. Minimal results can lead to frustration and discouragement. The inability to attain a classic six-pack look is often due to a stubborn layer of fat that is concealing the abs underneath. Hidden six-pack abs can be due to:

  • Genetics

  • Hormones

  • Aging

  • Pregnancy

How to get a six-pack instantly

There is no magic trick for transforming your abs instantly. However, plastic surgery comes pretty close. Using an innovative and highly advanced technology known as VASER ab etching, or VASER ab sculpting, patients can to rid themselves of the stubborn fat concealing their abs by using the vaser technique, well-defined, sculpted abs can be created almost immediately.

What is VASER liposuction?

VASER liposuction is an exciting fat removal technique. The vaser is able to achieve far superior results, with less pain, blood loss, and scarring compared to traditional lipo. The vaser is designed to permanently eliminate fat and deliver long-lasting results. VASER ab sculpting in Beverly Hills is performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Katzen will begin by making three tiny, pencil eraser-sized incisions near the target areas. A tumescent solution will be administered, and the VASER cannula will be inserted through the incisions to deliver ultrasonic energy. The ultrasound waves work to break up and liquefy the fat cells, making them easier to remove without disturbing the nearby tissues. The vaser results in less trauma to the body. Finally, further liposuction will be used to precisely sculpt and define the abs.

How long is recovery after VASER liposuction for abs?

Following VASER ab sculpting, patients should expect some level of discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Dr. Katzen will prescribe medications and other recommendations to help relieve these symptoms. Compression garments should be worn to reduce swelling and promote proper, speedy healing. Most patients can return to work after about one week. Certain physical activities and exercise will still be restricted for the first several weeks. Patients should notice an almost immediate improvement in their look. Results will continue to improve over the coming months as the swelling resolves and the tissues settle.

Will I have scars after VASER liposuction?

The incisions required with VASER liposuction for abdominal sculpting are exceedingly small. The incisions are even smaller than those used during traditional liposuction. Furthermore, to minimize scar visibility, Dr. Katzen takes great care to place the incisions within the natural lines and creases of the body. Once the incisions have healed and the scars have fully faded, they are nearly imperceptible. Dr. Katzen and his knowledgeable team will also provide aftercare instructions to reduce the appearance of the scars.

How long does ab sculpting last?

The results of VASER liposculpture can last for many years, if not indefinitely. The most essential factor in maintaining your VASER ab sculpting results over time is to avoid future weight gain, including pregnancy.
