Abdominal Etching Before and After Photos

Besides tummy tuck surgery, abdominal etching is another popular procedure for achieving a six-pack look. Abdominal etching is a minimally invasive procedure that targets the waistline and obliques. This is a type of liposuction procedure that works by strategically removing fat from the midsection. 

The process takes less than two hours and is generally performed under local or general anesthesia. Patients can return home after the anesthesia wears off. A consultation with a doctor is recommended before deciding to have this procedure.

The best results for abdominal etching occur when you select the right surgeon. An experienced provider should be able to develop a personalized plan for you.

During the consultation, the surgeon will talk about your health concerns, the type of surgery you are having, and the benefits and risks of the procedure. The doctor will also make you aware of any unique caveats that are associated with your body type.

There are some potential complications associated with this procedure, including infection, excessive swelling, and uneven contouring. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous exercise, herbal supplements, and smoking for at least two weeks following the procedure.
