Men in relatively good shape that desire a more defined abdomen are the ideal candidates for six pack abs, also know as abdominal etching. Abdominal etching uses liposuction to accentuate the abdominal rippling, and create a sculpted ab appearance.
Plastic surgeon Dr.Shobhit performs male ab surgery, which removes excess fat, and reshapes the abdominal region, to enhance the abdominal muscles that are hard to get through diet and exercise alone.
Abdominal etching is done with a special tumescent liposuction technique. The procedure removes and sculpts fatty tissue residing under the skin. Before the procedure, detailed markings are made of the patient’s flexed abs. During the surgery, small incisions are made within the natural contours of the abdomen. This helps minimize scarring. Through these incisions, fat is removed in some areas, thinned in others, and rearranged to accentuate the abdomen (rectus) muscles and the linea alba (the line running down the center of the abdomen).
All male abdominal etching procedures are performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure at an accredited surgical facility. 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. Most patients are able to resume a normal work schedule within 1 week and incorporate exercise within 3 weeks. The full effect of surgery should be noticed within 6 months. This surgery allows men increased definition of their abdominals.
