Abdominal Etching

Abdomial etching is a type of liposuction operation that aims to sculp and enhance patients' waistline and create six-pack abs.

Similar to the classical liposuction, abdominal etching also uses a suction technique to mold the fat deposits underneath the skin. However, abdominal etching only removes certain lines of fat and leaves the fat pockets above each abdominal muscle mostly intact to create an artificial six-pack shape. To be able to do that, surgeon draws vertical and horizontal lines on the abdomen to create a picture of six-pack. Surgeon then uses those lines to guide the canula (the device used for breaking and suctioning the fat) and removes the fat underneath the lines to mold the abdomen.

Following the liposuction procedure, a foam dressing matching the drawings applied on the abdominal area to keep the fat pockets in shape then and covered by a compression garment. Patients are advised to keep the dressing and garment on for 4 to 6 weeks following the operation. 

 

The aim of this article is to give you a general information about the surgical intervention in question. You need to make more research about possible complications and risks of this selected procedure in order to make an informed decision. Please note that complications occur more frequently with patients who are obese, smoke, and have a history or lung or other chronic underlying medical conditions.

 

Smokers are recognized to have a significantly higher risk of post operative wound healing problems with a subsequently higher potential of infection as well as operative and post operative bleeding. Patients should discontinue smoking for two weeks before and two weeks after surgery. Although it helps to stop smoking before and after surgery, this does not completely eliminate the increased risks resulting from long­ term smoking. Smoking also has a long term adverse effect on the skin and ageing process.
