The abdominal etching procedure is a form of liposculpture that helps to make the abs look chiseled. This has been nicknamed the “six-pack” procedure for its results in giving men the desired contours of the abs. Abdominal etching is a new way of using liposuction for fat reduction in a targeted area. Liposuction can be used to treat multiple areas of the body, but this treatment is specifically curated for treatment of the abdomen.

The Abdominal Etching Procedure
The abdominal etching is like other forms of liposuction. The fat in the abdomen is permanently removed using liposuction equipment. Small incisions are made around the belly button and the fat cells are extracted with a small instrument called a cannula. These targeted pockets of fat are removed to help improve the contours of your abdomen. This procedure typically takes approximately two hours to complete at our accredited surgical facility.
Anesthesia for Abdominal Etching
This procedure is completely comfortable and safe when performed under sedation. General anesthesia is used for abdominal etching to help patients feel relaxed and pain-free. This can be performed at our accredited facility or at an outpatient facility.
Abdominal Etching Recovery
The area will be sore for a few days following the procedure. Patients will be suited with a compression garment to help control any swelling. At the procedure, you will be given complete aftercare instructions to aid in the healing process. You may have some fluid drainage from your incision areas as well as minimal bruising. Many patients can return to work after about a week following the surgery. At a post-operative appointment with us, we can determine when it is suitable to return to full daily activities.
