Ab etching is a form of liposuction or liposculpture, and is an ideal procedure for patients seeking a chiseled and athletic appearance. Reputable plastic surgery centers are committed to providing result-oriented abdominal etching. High definition results are achieved through the use of the advanced Smartlipo Triplex body contouring workstation from Cynosure.
This procedure helps you achieve the much coveted washboard abdomen and a six pack, giving more definition to the underlying musculature. This innovative body sculpting procedure is provided on an outpatient basis; local anesthesia is sufficient, which increases its safety. Excess abdominal fat is removed and the muscles tightened to ensure a well-contoured stomach and stronger muscle definition. This body contouring procedure is provided for both men and women who desire a leaner, athletic appearance.
Are You a Candidate for Abdominal Etching?
The ideal candidates for the body contouring procedure should have already well-toned abdominal muscles as it involves the removal of precise lines of fat revealing the underlying natural muscle tone. It is a safe and recommended procedure for candidates who have undergone tummy tuck or liposuction to achieve a pronounced chiseled and fitter appearance. This procedure is recommended by plastic surgeons for candidates with less than 2 cm fat that can be pinched. The plastic surgeon measures the fat content before deciding whether you are a candidate for the procedure.
Abdominal laser etching is performed using Smartlipo Triplex that utilizes three potent laser wavelengths for hi-def results. The procedure is associated with short recovery period, minimal discomfort and minimal pain / trauma.
What about the Cost?
The cost of the procedure may vary depending upon a number of factors. Some of it may include:
>> Amount of fat removed
>> Liposuction technique
>> Surgeon's experience
>> Area of the country
>> The cost of the anesthesiologist and surgical facility
Procedure and Recovery
The plastic surgeon will mark your abdomen with lines that will guide the surgical incisions. Excess fat is removed via liposuction through the incisions. Typically the scarring is minimal because of the small incisions made. You will be advised to wear a compression garment after the surgery.
Postoperative bruising, swelling, or pain may persist but with the required care and medication these symptoms can be controlled. In some cases, the patient is required to wear the compression garment for three to six weeks and avoid any heavy lifting or carrying for at least three weeks for effective healing and speedy recovery.
