Abdominal etching is a VASER liposuction technique that works to remove excess fat from between the abdominal muscles. It leaves behind a series of indentations that look similar to “six-pack” abs, giving patients a tighter, firmer and better defined stomach appearance. It is a popular form of liposuction for men, but is also performed on women seeking the same type of lean look.
The procedure involves the use of VASER liposuction techniques (and can be performed alongside traditional abdominoplasty), but differs in several ways.
Difference between Abdominal etching and Abdominoplasty
Abdominal etching enhances the appearance of abdominal muscles by doing superficial liposuction. Whereas, abdominoplasty involves tightening the abdominal muscles by removing large amounts of fat and removing excess skin. With abdominal etching natural grooves of abdominal muscles are deepened.
Who is the right candidate for Abdominal Etching?
The goal of abdominal etching is to emphasize the present musculature by removing precise lines of fat and to reveal patient’s natural muscle tone. For this reason the patient should have very small amount of fat and should be physically fit. Patient desiring abdominal etching need to maintain their diet and exercise to better maintain the results of the procedure for longer period of time. Patients who have undergone liposuction or tummy tuck can also be good candidates for abdominal etching.
For these reasons bodybuilders, fitness models and athletes are good candidates for this procedure.
THE BENEFITS OF ABDOMINAL ETCHING LIPOSUCTION FOR FITNESS MODELS, BODY BUILDERS AND ATHLETES
Not only does the procedure of abdominal etching, define the abdominal muscles better, it also offers a less intensive form of surgery than many other treatment options. It is relatively quick to recover from and leaves behind only minimal scarring.
Since abdominal etching is a liposculpting procedure, it can be combines with chest enhancement to give an overall result.
The Abdominal Etching Surgery Procedure
The abdominal etching procedure takes about an hour, and it can be performed as an outpatient procedure. Either local or general anesthesia is used. Before surgery, Dr Prashant will ask the patient to contract their stomach so that he can mark indentation to be treated. He will then outline the patient’s abdominal muscles and use these lines to serve as a guide during surgery. Dr Prashant will then make, several small incisions in the naval or the natural creases of the abdomen, where they are inconspicuous. With the help of a cannula or a flexible tube, excess fat is removed and patient’s abdominal muscles are sculpted. The four or five remaining scars are very small – only about an eighth or a quarter inch in length.
In some cases this procedure can be combined with liposuction of the love handles, flanks and stomach itself.
At Dezire clinic we perform male abdominal etching as well as female abdominal etching.
Dr Prashant uses the revolutionary 4D liposuction to sculpt your abs and giving the 6 packs you always wanted.
The fourth dimension referred to in the term “4D Lipo” is dynamic definition of the underlying muscular anatomy as it relates to muscular motion is now also considered. This has taken liposculpture results to a new level.
It`s not just liposuction. It`s liposculpture.
Liposculpture begins where traditional liposuction and the basic LipoSelection procedures end.
Using the VASER technique Dr Prashant enhance the muscles you’ve worked so hard for.
By utilizing techniques fundamental to the fine art of sculpting – such as light, dimension, and shadow – Dr. Prashant Yadav creates mountains and valleys out of your muscles.
In liposculpting the male abdominal muscles for a rock-hard “six-pack” appearance, Dr. Prashant Yadav would leave small layers of fat over the top of the muscle, but heavily aspirate fat from between the muscles. Thus, the muscle itself is enhanced, and the lines between appear like deep, ripped valleys. The result is an athletic abdomen with “six-pack” abs.

You will be provided with detailed instructions regarding how to minimize injury or complications during recovery. Some activities will be restricted for the first 2 weeks (like going to the gym). You will be required to take it easy for 1-2 weeks. Patients will be able to shower the second day after surgery. The benefits of the procedure become fully visible within 3 months. Patients will often notice some changes earlier than this, though.
