Abdominal Etching for Men

Home / Services

An Introduction

Abdominal etching takes liposuction to the next level as it involves an advance level of detailing and distinction to the abdomen that gets you Six-Packs. It is a form of liposculpting that removes excess fat between the abdominal muscles, creating indentations that resemble those seen on a six-pack or washboard stomach. With ab etching, your stomach can appear tighter, firmer and more muscular.

Those Six-Pack Abs are Now Achievable!

Many men strive for those ever-desirable six-packs and eight pack abs these days. Yet, tireless stomach crunches and sit-ups often don’t get the job done, no matter how disciplined you are about your regimen. The truth is, it can be very difficult to eliminate the layer of fat around the midsection, particularly if you are not genetically blessed in the abdominal region to begin with. However, there is a secret weapon many men have turned to for defined abs and that legendary six pack look Abdominal etching, or Ab-etching, is a plastic surgery procedure to reshape and contour the abdominal fat pad to provide patients with a flatter stomach. The procedure selectively removes a small amount of fat around the patient’s natural muscular contours and shapes or sculpts the abdomen to create a more athletic contour. It is a new procedure that uses a special cannula to contour and shape abdominal fat pad to provide patients with a flatter stomach and to provide the look of a 6 or 8 pack abdomen.

Are you a good candidate for Ab-Etching?

The procedure is suitable for patients who are already in shape and who have between one to two centimeters of “pinchable 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.

The Procedure

The procedure can be performed under general anesthesia and take approx one hour or two to be done. Prior to the procedure, the surgeon makes detailed markings of the patient’s flexed abdominal muscle and uses the markings to remove fat and to highlight the patient’s individual muscular structure. Next, your surgeon will create several one- to two-millimeter incisions in your belly button or within the natural creases of your abdomen. He will then insert a cannula (a tube-like instrument) to remove excess fat and sculpt grooves in the remaining fat to emphasize your natural musculature.

Your Recovery

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.

Expected Results

The results of Abdominal Etching Surgery are are usually long-lasting and it takes 6 months to one year to see the final results of the procedure.


Ques. Will the fat re-accumulates at the involved area after liposuction ever?

Ans.The fat cells that are removed are gone forever so there are no chances that fat will accumulate at the same place ever. But if you keep eating junk foods and don’t adapt healthy life style (balance between intake and out take), fat will surely accumulate somewhere else your body making you look disproportionate.
