Are you a candidate for lipo?

Thanks for your question.  Hard to diagnose or assess from a single photo, but not sure surgery is indicated here.  As you stated, you are fit and trim, young and athletic.  Not really sure that any surgery is indicated here.  I'm sure, surgeons might agree to try to "sculpt" your ab's, but if you showed up in my office, at least from the photo provided, I'd probably recommend no surgery at all.  I'd worry that irregularities after lipo would look worse than your current appearance.  You look great, don't go under the knife!

Vaser liposuction: what is the best option?

hello paula2009  

A healthy person seeking a fast and minimally invasive way to get rid of stubborn fat.  Those patients looking for better definition of muscles and better contouring of body parts.  Those patients who are looking for more sculpting of their body are good candidates for vaser as opposed to traditional liposuction. #options #abdomen
