Abdominal and Pectoral Etching

Abdominal etching gives men the “washboard” or “six-pack” look by combining liposuction with liposculpture to create subtle ripples in the abdominal area, allowing the underlying abdominal muscles to show greater detail. Fat is removed from the abdomen through a small hollow tube inserted through one or more tiny incisions.

Most incisions are hidden in the natural body creases of the body and leave very small scars. This procedure is not a substitute for weight loss. Ideal candidates are of relatively normal weight with only isolated pockets of fat.

The surgery usually takes one to two hours and is performed under general anesthesia. Most patients return to work after about three to five days and can resume their workout routines after about seven days. Please contact Dr. Fortes for your Abdominal Liposuction consultation.
