How Flat Can My Tummy Get with Body Contouring Treatments?

By: Dr. Linda I. Sodoma


A flat, chiseled stomach is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after features in the world of health and beauty, but it can be practically impossible to achieve with natural methods – meaning diet and exercise – alone. Not only that, but life events – like pregnancy, weight fluctuation, and aging – can wreak having on your once-flat abs. Whether lack of muscle definition or stubborn belly fat is keeping you from loving your mid-section, nonsurgical body contouring may be right for you. In this blog, board-certified physician Dr. Linda I. Sodoma and the experienced team of aesthetic providers at Life Care for Women in Gilbert, AZ answer some of the most common questions about nonsurgical body contouring for the stomach, including just how flat you can expect your tummy to be after treatment.

Crunches aren’t working

One of the most common complaints from men and women trying to achieve flat, defined abs is that crunches and sit-ups don’t work for them. This doesn’t mean they aren’t putting forth enough effort. In reality, there are very few people who can achieve a flat stomach naturally, as genetics, hormones, and other factors come into play. With nonsurgical body contouring treatments like EMSCULPT NEO®, however, a firm and sexy stomach may finally be attainable for you.

How does EMSCULPT NEO work?

EMSCULPT NEO offers the benefits of fat-burning and muscle toning within a single body contouring system, making it one of the most sought-after and transformative treatments available today. During an EMSCULPT NEO session, the system’s applicators will be placed on the desired treatment area, and high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy will stimulate approximately 20,000 muscle contractions in just 30 minutes – far more than would ever be possible naturally. This process ignites fat burning and muscle toning, resulting in a slimmer, firmer, more defined new figure.

Where can EMSCULPT NEO be used?

Most often, EMSCULPT NEO is used to reduce fat and encourage muscle toning in the following areas:

  • Stomach (abdomen)
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Calves
  • Upper arms

Expected results with EMSCULPT NEO

The results of EMSCULPT NEO will vary somewhat between patients based on several factors, including their starting weight and musculature, age, diet and lifestyle, and others. In many cases, patients are able to achieve about a 25% increase in fat reduction and muscle toning than with natural methods alone.

How many EMSCULPT NEO sessions will I need for my stomach?

Believe it or not, you may begin to see results as little as one week after your first EMSCULPT NEO session. During your initial consultation, our team will assess your areas of concern and recommend a treatment schedule that will be most effective for you. For reference, most patients require a series of 4 – 5 EMSCULPT NEO sessions spread over the course of a couple of weeks. With a healthy lifestyle and routine maintenance treatments about once per year, you can keep your figure looking slim, firm, and sexy year-round.
