Abdominal etching is a plastic surgery procedure that gives the abdomen the appearance of a 6 pack. It is a type of liposuction / lipo-sculpture procedure that removes fat in pockets from the abdominal region using hi-def liposuction tools such as VASER. The procedure involves making incisions around the belly button and removing fat from various abdominal areas while leaving a certain amount of fat over the muscles to give a sculpted look. The term “etching” refers to the sculpting/chiselling of the 6-pack abs. 6 pack abs surgery or abdominal etching is best for people who are at their ideal weight but have difficulty losing stubborn fat from the abdominal regions. Before deciding on abdominal etching, some patients consider a tummy tuck or liposuction procedure. They can achieve well-defined 6-pack abs look this way.


Individuals can also achieve designer abs through 6-pack abs surgery or high-definition liposuction, which uses your natural abdominal contours. Dr Priya Bansal specialises in creating these designer abs without leaving scars. Her speciality is using advanced liposuction technology such as BodyTite to enhance the already promising outcome further: tighter skin, natural and ripped abs.


Experienced surgeons such as Dr Priya Bansal will use the following devices for washboard abs:


PAL (Power-Assisted Liposuction): MicroAire, which is used in PAL, generates a light oscillating motion that easily passes through toughened fibrous fat tissues with great precision. Because there is little damage to the fat cells, Dr. Bansal can use the excess fat for homologous grafting.


Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL): This procedure employs ultrasound technology to soften the underlying fat and make it easier to remove. Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy and Resonance is the device used (VASER). VASER is the industry’s most advanced, sophisticated, minimally invasive liposuction technology, with painless execution.


Following liposuction, the ultra-modern BodyTite device, which employs Radio Frequency energy, emphasises the abdominal contours and tightens the skin. This device adds the finishing touches to your 6 pack abs surgery by tightening and smoothing the skin, giving you washboard abs.


If you’re wondering what the difference between liposuction surgery and abdominal etching is, let us talk about that too.


Liposuction is also a science-based procedure that uses a suction device to remove stubborn fat from anywhere on the body, including the abdomen. On the other hand, abdominal etching is a procedure that should be considered if a person has good abdominal muscles and a moderate amount of fat that needs to be removed. An experienced surgeon can advise you on whether to consider liposuction surgery before deciding on an abdominal etching procedure.



The Benefits of Ab-Etching

As people age, their metabolism slows significantly, making the desired abdominal contour only possible through cosmetic procedures. With abdominal etching, people can get well-contoured abs that they can keep up regularly. If the person gains weight, the treatment’s effect will suffer. Therefore, it is critical to maintain a healthy weight through diet and exercise.


The good news is that abdominal etching can be completed in 1-2 hours, and the results will be visible in three to 6 months. Men’s abdominal etching is becoming increasingly popular worldwide because it is the only way to achieve the desired look, even if ageing-related issues become a hindrance. 



What are the risks and prerequisites for Abdominal Etching?


Abdominal etching is usually a low-risk procedure. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are minor risks. Some of these are swelling, infection, uneven abdominal contouring, nerve damage, fluid accumulation, and others. 


To avoid these risks and get the best-looking results, patients must choose a board-certified surgeon who specialises in the procedure. Furthermore, to avoid complications, patients must disclose all pre-existing medical conditions and any allergic reactions in the first consultation session.
