When it comes to the appearance of your mid-section, “six-pack abs” are the dream. This refers to a flat but chiseled abdomen where the six abdominal muscles are attractively defined. Unfortunately, a six-pack is very difficult or even impossible to attain for certain individuals. After all, we can’t choose where our fat cells will be stored and genetics can often outweigh the amount of time you spend in the gym.
If you are struggling to get rid of that last layer of stubborn fat that is hiding your abdominal muscles, a talented plastic surgeon can help. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio of Back Bay Plastic Surgery is a body contouring specialist who offers Abdominal Etching, a procedure that not only demands skill but remarkable artistry as well.
What is Abdominal Etching?
Abdominal etching is a form of liposuction that strategically removes fat from your abdomen in a way that enhances or outlines the appearance of the ab muscles – or that sought-after “six pack.” Abdominal etching is also known as High-Definition or 3D liposuction.
This technique does not involve blindly removing as much fat as possible. Instead, your plastic surgeon will use liposuction to sculpt your midsection. Abdominal etching removes targeted fat in some areas while also leaving the fat deposits in areas that help to enhance the look of your abdominal muscles. These areas will be carefully marked by your plastic surgeon before the liposuction procedure begins.
Abdominal etching is a out-patient procedure that with a quick recovery and only tiny incisions made around your naval. In fact, patients can undergo abdominal etching under local anesthesia! If you are at a healthy weight and know you have abdominal muscles waiting to be unveiled, call Back Bay Plastic Surgery to learn if you are a candidate for Abdominal Etching.
