Surgical Ab Etching at South Coast Plastic Surgery

Have you been dieting and exercising, but unable to achieve your dream six-pack abs? Then it’s time to discover surgical ab etching at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Ladera, CA!

What is Surgical Ab Etching?

Surgical ab etching is a specific type of liposuction surgery that “carves” out six-pack abs from a patient’s stubborn stomach fat. The end goal is to help patients get the kind of dream six-pack they’ve always wanted, but haven’t been able to due to persistent fat. Surgical ab etching can give patients a huge confidence boost, as this procedure can make it possible to get the stomach they’ve been working so hard to get.

This procedure can be combined with non-surgical ab strengthening like CoolTone(™) or Emsculpt(™) which is offered by South Coast Plastic Surgery. Our doctors have done research and published on what the ideal abs for men and women are and how people can achieve them both surgically and non-surgically, with the right diet and exercise regimen too.

How Does It Work?

Surgical ab etching is performed similarly to liposuction, in which the plastic surgeon uses small incisions to access the patient’s stomach fat. The cannula is used to precisely carve outlines that resemble six-pack abs and removes the excess fat to help make the results more obvious. Results can include a more defined stomach that’s maintained through continued diet and exercise. This can be combined with Renuvion(R) to help tighten the skin around the sculpted abs.

Am I a Good Candidate For Surgical Ab Etching?

You’re a good candidate for surgical ab etching if you follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen, but you have a stubborn layer of stomach fat that’s resistant to your efforts. All candidates for this procedure need to be healthy nonsmoking men who have realistic expectations for their results. You should be at your ideal body weight prior to surgery.

What Results Will I See?*

Results are typically visible right away, and they include that traditional six-pack you’ve been working hard for. Final results are visible about six to eight weeks after surgery when most swelling and bruising has gone away. Regular dieting and exercise are needed to maintain these results.

What is the Recovery Like?*

Most patients usually take about three to five days off from work. Most patients are able to return to work after a week, as well as resume normal exercise routines about four weeks after surgery. You may need to wear a compression garment for the first few weeks after your procedure in order to help minimize swelling and bruising and for your own comfort.
