After reviewing your photos, you should be able to obtain an excellent result VASER liposuction of the abdomen. If wanted, you could also add definition to the abdominal area with a technique called VASER Hi-Definition liposuction. You should expect a flat stomach as you have good skin tone. I would also recommend performing liposuction of the flanks to obtain a better result and enhance your curve.
An expert liposuction surgeon should be able to get a nice result in a young individual with good skin.

A flat abdomen has several components . These include the skin and underlying fat , muscle and fascial wall, and the volume of the internal ( intra abdominal ) fat. While liposuction can produce excellent results it does not correct excessively loose skin or a distended abdominal wall with poor muscular tone
We ask our liposuction patients to visualize their abdomens totally drawn in and then totally let out.
If an abdominal protuberance is noted then abdominal exercises or a tummy tuck procedure may be required.
It could be possible but not probable to achieve a completely flat abdomen. Do not purchase at home US units...
The tummy can bulge from fat inside and outside the intestinal area. The subcutaneous fat is the only fat amenable to Vaser liposuction. In addition tummies bulge from muscle weakness. So if you have liposuction you may or may not be flat. I try and encourage 20 year olds to attain their ideal weight and fitness before any liposuction. You look like you are not at ideal weight fro you photos My Best, Dr C.
