What Is VASER High Def Ab Sculpting?

By: Dr. J. Timothy Katzen


Most people agree that one of the must-haves for a toned, strong, sexy physique is washboard abs. However, even the fittest men and women often struggle to achieve an abdominal six pack. For some, washboard abs may even be impossible, regardless of how many crunches they do or how healthy they eat. This may be due to a stubborn layer of abdominal fat that conceals the muscle definition hiding underneath. plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen and the forward-thinking team at J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills are excited to offer minimally invasive ab sculpting with the leading edge VASER liposuction technology to help patients elevate their look and get the shredded abs they deserve.

What is VASER liposuction?

VASER high-def liposuction, sometimes referred to as liposculpture, is an innovative procedure that combines multiple technologies and tools to melt and permanently remove fat. Using the vaser technique, Dr. Katzen is able to precisely sculpt and contour the treatment site. VASER lipo utilizes a specialized tumescent fluid and ultrasonic energy to first liquefy the fat cells, maximizing fat removal. This minimizes damage to the surrounding tissue, less blood loss and allows for a shorter and more comfortable recovery with less bruising and swelling compared to traditional liposuction. Furthermore, the incisions and cannula used in VASER liposuction are smaller than those used in traditional liposuction.

How is VASER used for ab etching?

One of the most popular applications for VASER lipo in Beverly Hills, CA is stomach contouring or abdominal etching. For many patients, achieving a distinctly defined six pack is nearly impossible. This may be due to genetics, previous pregnancy, or other factors. While these patients may have put in the appropriate amount of work to tone and strengthen their abs, stubborn abdominal fat often disguises what’s under the surface. Using VASER liposuction, Dr. Katzen is able to precisely remove fat cells to create striking definition between the abs.

What kind of anesthesia is used for VASER liposuction?

VASER ab sculpting is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. Typically, VASER ab etching liposuction takes about 2 - 3 hours.

How long is recovery after VASER lipo for abs?

Following VASER abdominal etching, patients can expect some bruising, swelling, and discomfort that may last for a few weeks. Most patients are able to return to work within 5 – 7 days, though compression garments and other aftercare will still be necessary. Dr. Katzen will ask you to wear your compression garments for six weeks after VASER ab liposuction. Dr. Katzen will provide a comprehensive set of postoperative guidelines and restrictions, including pausing your workout routine for about 3 – 4 weeks to help make your healing and recovery as successful and efficient as possible.

Will I have scars after VASER abdominal etching?

During VASER ab sculpting, Dr. Katzen will make five tiny incisions on the abdomen, each of which is about the size of a pencil eraser. Dr. Katzen understands the importance of keeping work discreet and avoiding visible scarring, so he takes great care to place the incisions in areas where they can be camouflaged within the natural creases of the body as much as possible. Once the incisions have healed fully, the tiny scars will continue to fade over time and often become virtually invisible.
