Etching / 6 Pack ABS

Desire a more defined abdomen and six pack abs? Men in relatively good shape that desire a more defined abdomen are the ideal candidates for six pack abs, also known as abdominal etching. Abdominal etching uses liposuction to accentuate the abdominal rippling, and create a sculpted abs appearance. Many men strive for those ever-desirable six packs and work for years without obtaining the desired results. Tireless stomach crunches and sit-ups don’t get the job due to the layer of fat covering the muscle. No matter how disciplined you are about your regimen, you don’t get the six pack dreams so easily fulfilled. So at that moment, six pack abs liposuction is your secret weapon. Many men have turned to six pack abs surgery for that more defined abdominal region and that good six pack look.

What is Abdominal Etching Surgery?

The six pack abs surgery reshapes the abdominal region and involves an advance level of detailing and distinction to the abdomen that gets you six packs. Six pack abs are not always easy to get through diet and exercise alone. The truth is that it can be very difficult to eliminate the layer of fat around the midsection; a little genetics may also play a role. The abs etching procedure selectively removes the fat tissues that collect in excess around the patient’s natural muscular contours and shapes the abdomen to render a more athletic contour. It uses a special cannula to contour and shape abdominal fat. You end up getting a flatter stomach and the look of a 6-or 8- pack abdomen.

Abdominal etching is a liposuction procedure that removes excess fat between the abdominal muscles, and helps to give more definition to your abdomen resembling six packs. The whole procedure accentuates the abdominal rippling and your stomach appears tighter, firmer and more muscular like you had always hoped.

Are you A Good Candidate for Abs-Etching?

The procedure is suitable for patients who are already in shape and who have between one to two centimetres of “pinch-able belly fat”. It is not suitable for patients with larger accumulations of abdominal fat seeking to significantly reduce their belly size or accomplish weight reductions as the amount of fat removed is fairly small. A traditional liposuction is more suitable for those patients.

Surgical Procedure:

Abdominal etching is done with a special tumescent liposuction technique. The procedure removes and sculpts fatty tissue residing under the skin. Before the procedure, detailed markings are made of the patient’s flexed abs. During the surgery, small incisions are made within the natural contours of the abdomen. This helps minimize scarring. Through these incisions, fat is removed in some areas, thinned in others, and rearranged to accentuate the abdomen (rectus) muscles and the linea alba (the line running down the centre of the abdomen).


You can go back to your home on the same day of your surgery or may require an overnight stay. Right after the procedure, you will likely to feel moderate to minimal pain in your abdomen area which will be minimized through some medications. You can return to normal activities in 3 to 5 days after your procedure but any heavy exercise or strenuous activity may be restricted for 2-4 weeks. You will be advised to wear a pressure garment for about three months to help quickly minimize the swelling & maintain your new body contour.
