Abdominal etching is a liposuction procedure that claims to sculpt and enhance the appearance of your waistline and create six-pack abs.
Abdominal etching is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, but it does require some downtime to recover.
Instead of removing fat from your midsection with the simple goal of a slimmer appearance, abdominal etching removes fat deposits in an advanced and strategic way. This type of liposuction molds and shapes your abdominal wall so that your ab muscles look more prominent.
For people who’ve tried unsuccessfully for years to achieve six-pack abs with diet and exercise, the idea of abdominal etching may be very appealing.
Duration: The surgery typically lasts about an hour. Following surgery, there will be some swelling and bruising in the abdomen. A compression garment should be worn for 3 -6 weeks.
Recovery from abdominal etching takes some time. Immediately after the procedure, you may
need to wear a compression garment to make sure that the cosmetic surgeon’s work seals and heals smoothly. You’ll most likely be able to resume most of your normal activities 2 weeks
after abdominal etching.
