Abdominal Etching

Abdominal etching is the easiest way to achieve a sculpted, washboard stomach with defined abs. Loosing weight and exercise alone can often leave a stomach that is flat but not taut. Plastic surgeons are able to tweak your hard work to make your abs look surfboard perfect, accentuating existing muscle by removing an overlying layer of fat. A six-pack is achievable with abdominal etching. 

What is abdominal etching?

Abdominal etching is a method of liposuction that allows you to define the individual muscles of the stomach that show as a six pack. Small incisions are made in various areas of the stomach area to suck fat from precise sections. Into these incisions plastic surgeons insert a small tube which breaks up the fat and suctions it out. By removing fat from specifically targeted areas the results of abdominal etching are perfectly defined muscles. 

Results of abdominal etching? 

Abdominal etching is intended to allow men to reveal their hidden six-pack. The procedure is not suitable for all patients as it may not produce the desired results. In order for abdominal etching to produce results patients are happy with, suitable candidates should be in fit physical condition with underlying stomach muscle tone. Abdominal etching is not intended as a fat removal procedure, suitable candidates will be slim with little excess fat in the abdominal region.

Candidates that meet the requirements of surgery are delighted with the results of abdominal etching. Within weeks any post-surgery scaring disappears and patients can see their defined stomach muscles. 90% of patients achieve a six-pack look after abdominal etching.
