Abdominal etching


Abdominal Etching is a liposuction procedure with a suction technique to remove fat deposits more strategically. This liposuction molds and shapes your abdominal wall, so your ab muscles look more prominent, creating the coveted “sick pack.”


This procedure is ideal for people who’ve been unsuccessfully at achieving six-pack abs with diet and exercise alone. Abdominal Etching works best for people less than 30 percent over their ideal body weight, with healthy muscle and skin tone. Your age and skin’s elasticity should also be considered when being realistic about the results of Abdominal Etching.


Abdominal Etching works very similarly to traditional liposuction but is a bit more precise. The fat deposits covering your abdominal muscles are carefully carved off your body using small incisions, usually around your belly button. This technique can deepen the natural grooves in your body and make your ab muscles appear much more prominent. Fat deposits may also be taken from the sides overlying your oblique abdominal muscles to narrow your midsection.


You will need to wear a compression garment right after your procedure to make sure that everything seals and heals smoothly. You’ll most likely be able to resume most of your everyday activities two weeks after Abdominal Etching.


Abdominal Etching results are permanent as long as the weight is maintained. It takes from 3-6 months to see the full results.


The cost of Abdominal Etching can vary depending on the needs of each patient but is typically $5,500 – $6,000.
