Internationally recognized plastic surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen and the expert team at J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. Beverly Hills are proud to offer cutting-edge VASER hi def liposuction to help men and women get the sexy, washboard abs they have always wanted in a straight forward step. Learn more about this exciting procedure here, and find out if it may be right for you.

Why can’t I get definition in my abs?

If you are like most people, achieving magazine cover-worthy abs is virtually impossible, no matter how much time you spend in the gym. Frequently, patients have a thin layer of stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise and, unfortunately, conceals the abs underneath. Genetics, hormones, aging, certain medications, and other factors can contribute to this problem. In other cases, patients may have an ideal body fat percentage, but still struggle to develop visible muscle definition. VASER hi def liposuction finally makes it possible for men and women to reveal the sculpted abs for which they have worked so hard.

What is VASER liposuction?

VASER hi def liposuction for abdominal sculpting, often referred to as liposculpture or ab etching, is a breakthrough fat removal procedure designed to efficiently and precisely remove fat around the abdominal muscles and produce a sculpted, defined, six-pack. VASER liposuction in Beverly Hills is performed under general anesthesia with a board certified anesthesiologist. During vaser liposuction, Dr. Katzen will make five small incisions near the treatment area, each of which is about the size of a pencil eraser. A specialized tumescent fluid is then injected into the abdomen to maximize the procedure’s efficiency. Then, a handheld cannula is inserted through the incisions. The VASER cannula delivers powerful energy to liquefy the fat cells, making them easier to remove than traditional liposuction and limiting damage to the surrounding tissues. Finally, Dr. Katzen performs further liposuction to precisely remove fat around the ab muscles and create A striking abdominal definition.

How long is recovery after VASER ab etching?

Following the procedure, patients should expect some swelling and discomfort. However, the recovery after VASER liposuction is typically much speedier and less extensive than traditional liposuction recovery. Patients will need to wear compression garments to help reduce swelling. Most can return to work after about a week with some restrictions on physical activity. Typically, patients can resume exercise about 3 – 4 weeks after VASER abdominal liposuction. As far as scarring, Dr. Katzen takes great care to place the tiny incisions in areas where they can be concealed within the body’s natural creases. With proper aftercare, scarring is minimal.

Am I a good candidate for VASER liposuction for my abs?

The best way to find out with certainty if you qualify for VASER hi def liposuction is to be evaluated by Dr. Katzen personally. In the meantime, there are several factors to consider when determining if ab etching is appropriate for you. Ideal candidates for VASER abdominal liposuction should be nonsmokers who are in good health and:

  • Are at a healthy, stable weight

  • Have a relatively low body fat percentage

  • Are unable to achieve desired results after consistent diet and exercise

  • Have isolated pockets of abdominal fat

Additionally, patients should have realistic expectations for their results and be committed to maintaining a healthy weight and regular exercise routine. With consistency, the results of ab etching can last for decades.
