Hone Your Toned Tummy
The abdomen defines a person’s figure in many ways. Unfortunately, the belly is also one of the top areas for stubborn fat. Diet and exercise can’t always help you obtain the flat, sculpted stomach you want. Abdominal liposuction is a safe, long-lasting way to remove this frustrating fat and sculpt your body into the final shape you desire.
The Advanced Body Sculpting (ABS) Institute specializes in procedures that eliminate excess fat and recontour your body into a desired, toned appearance. At the ABS Institute, you receive care from dedicated body contouring artists who possess an intimate understanding of how the structures of the body relate to the perception of beauty and harmony. Our board-certified surgeons tailor every abdominal liposuction to deliver our patient’s desired results.

What Is Abdominal Liposuction?
Abdominal liposuction is an FDA-approved method of addressing unwanted fat on the mid-section. Liposuction surgery removes fat from the stomach and flanks using a few small incisions. A slim cannula is inserted that gently vacuums out the undesired adipose (fat) deposits. This procedure is highly customizable and can improve the contours of the body.
- Enhances the shape and contours of the body
- Reduces fat deposits when diet and exercise aren’t working
- Achieves long-lasting results
- Improves overall health
- Provides motivation to maintain a healthy lifestyle
- Boosts self-esteem and body image
- Results that can be seen immediately
- Balances out any irregularities from aging, life events, or genetics
Is Abdominal Liposuction Right for Me?
If you have flabby, bulging, or pinchable fat on your abdomen or love handles, you are a good candidate for abdominal liposuction. Ideal candidates for abdominal liposuction are those who can maintain a stable weight and are at or near their desired body weight. Eligible candidates for abdominal liposuction should be non-smokers. Prospective patients should be committed to living a healthy lifestyle and reasonable expectations of the outcomes achievable with abdominal liposuction.
If diet and exercise are not delivering the results you want, abdominal liposuction can help you put the finishing touches on your physique.

Abdominal Liposuction Options
At the ABS Institute, our body sculpting experts have extensive experience in several innovative liposuction techniques. With our advanced liposuction techniques, you can achieve 50% to 100% more fat reduction than with older liposuction methods. Which technique we recommend will depend on what makes the most sense for your body and your personal preferences.
We perform all procedures under local anesthesia using tumescent fluid. Tumescent fluid is a solution of saline that causes the fat cells to swell, making them easier to gently dislodge, and extract from the body. Tumescent fluid also decreases bleeding, making recovery shorter and more comfortable.
We also use unique instruments such as atraumatic cannulas. Atraumatic cannulas are an innovative fat extraction tool that enables high-precision body sculpting results. With these advanced tools, the ABS Institute is able to utilize our in-depth understanding of “dynamic apogee” and anatomical artistry.
Abdominal VASER Liposuction
ABS is one of the nation’s top providers of VASER liposuction. VASER stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. It employs ultrasound waves that help separate the fat deposits from surrounding tissue which leads to improved fat removal. It can also produce some localized skin tightening.
SmartLipo, also known as laser lipolysis, is a minimally invasive, cost-effective form of liposuction proven to reduce recovery times. SmartLipo is performed with a 1 mm fiber optic laser. The laser will target unwanted fat deposits with light energy to melt abdominal fat for easy removal with the cannula.
SmartLipo has also shown to contract the connective tissue, which results in tighter skin and smoother contours. SmartLipo effectively addresses fat closer to the skin. The laser will cauterize any bleeding, and reduce bruising and recovery time. Due to the fact that SmartLipo puts minimal strain on the body, patients can comfortably receive laser lipolysis on their abdomen under local anesthesia. The use of local anesthesia reduces procedure costs and makes SmartLipo an effective, affordable choice.
Liposculpture is a more precise fat reduction technique where the body is sculpted and reshaped in line with the ideals of tailored anatomy. Where traditional liposuction practices are often focused simply on removing as much fat as possible, liposculpture offers results that harmonize and enhance your anatomy. Liposculpture is an excellent option for patients who have a small amount of subcutaneous fat on their abdomen. Incisions will be especially small and strategically placed.
What to Expect After Abdominal Liposuction
We monitor all our patients in a special recovery room to make sure you are recovering well. Once you are approved to go home, a friend or family member above the age of 18 will need to drive you home, and stay with you for 24 hours. You can usually return to work in about a week from your session, although this may vary depending on your individual anatomy and type of job. More strenuous activities should be avoided for the first two weeks of your recovery.
Post-Procedure bruising and swelling are common. Temporary numbness in the treated area may also occur. These conditions will dramatically improve within a week of your procedure. Post-procedure swelling will continue to reduce over the first two months after abdominal liposuction. Any discomfort can be controlled with medication. Our staff will discuss approved medication options with you prior to your surgery.
You will receive a compression garment to wear for up to two months following your recovery. This will reduce post-procedure swelling and encourage the body to accept the tightest contours possible.
Liposuction continues to grow in popularity because it offers proven results. From 1997 to 2015 the number of liposuctions performed increased by 124%.
You will immediately notice that your stomach is slimmer after abdominal lipo surgery. Your final results will emerge as post-procedure swelling subsides. You will begin to see impressive results by the six-week mark. Within three months, your body will have finished accepting the changes accomplished during your body contouring procedure. You can look forward to appearing more toned and sleek.
Abdominal liposuction will transform your stomach from flab to fab! ABS customizes every liposuction procedure to achieve our patient’s preferred outcomes. Whether you are looking for smooth, feminine contours, or a toned, harder abdomen, we can help you accomplish your ideal results.
