Male Abdominal Etching

Gain the Confidence that Comes Along with Looking and Feeling Your Best.

Male Abdominal Etching

Six-pack abs give a man that fully athletic look and extra sex appeal that makes them stand out in a crowd.

What is abdominal etching?

Abdominal etching is a procedure that defines and highlights the abdominal muscles and the six-pack abs. It is done using a special technique of male liposuction called hi-definition liposuction.

Who is a candidate for abdominal etching?

Good candidates for abdominal etching and hi-definition liposuction are the 99.9% of us who aren’t blessed with a steady 3% body fat. Even for the most dedicated men, a well-defined six-pack is hard to achieve because fat that accumulates around the midsection and chest is highly resistant to diet and exercise. Inevitably genetics and eventually age makes it more and more difficult to maintain a trim, well-defined appearance. At some point, long hours at the gym and meticulous control of your diet wont cut it and the only way to eliminate the fat and reclaim your physique is to physically remove the fat. So, if you have been frustrated in achieving the definition you’re after, abdominal etching is the perfect way to address those problem areas full of stubborn fat or as the final touch for that most difficult to loose last bit of excess, creating a confident, lean and muscular look.

Will abdominal etching create a fake six-pack?

No, true abdominal etching and hi-definition liposuction will bring out and highlight your natural abdominal muscles. The goal is to emphasize the muscles you have and allow even more improved definition through continued diet and exercise. The abdominal etching we do should not be confused with a similar procedure, sometimes referred to by the same name, where the shape of a six-pack is “etched” out and the look of muscles is created with fat.

How is abdominal etching done?

Treatment planning begins with an in-depth consultation to evaluate your individual fitness level, body type, and goals. In line with the patient’s goals, the body areas are mapped out for a three-step process: 1) VASER liposuction to loosen up and break down both the deep and surface layers of fat, 2) fat removal by power assisted liposuction, and 3) etching to highlight the surrounding contours and muscle edges. This process gets rid of unwanted fat and creates sharp definition to provide a distinctly trim, masculine look.

Is the recovery from abdominal etching different than from traditional male liposuction?

Since abdominal etching is a specialized form of male liposuction the recovery process is similar. Most patients describe the post-procedure sensation as soreness similar to the day after going through a real strenuous workout. Maintaining the high-definition and sculpted look from abdominal etching during recovery is very important, therefore adherence to the aftercare routines and activity restrictions designed to minimize swelling is critical.

Can other procedures be done at the same time as abdominal etching?

Abdominal etching can be performed alone, but is often combined with other male chest and body procedures including pectoral implants, gynecomastia excision, male liposuction and male tummy tuck.

Anyone considering facial, laser, skin, or augmentation services realizes it can be discouraging trying to find the right surgeon or facility. We research endlessly, only to stay just as confused as when we started. We then rely on word of mouth, pictures, or reviews. In my opinion Dr. Beck and the Sculpt Aesthetic staff are highly competent and you will be very pleased with your experience and results as I have been. Feel free to keep searching the internet endlessly, or take my word for it. Whether you are a man or a woman, you will be more than pleased with your results.

From my initial phone call with Marisa making my appointment to accommodate my schedule and going over some details to the time I was handed off to Lindsey explaining the quote and going into more detail about what I was interested in, these women are all TOP notch professionals and have a very kind and caring spirit. Linnea is amazing and you can tell she loves what she does. She listens to what your concerns are and then makes suggestions based on what you are trying to accomplish but by no means does she try to push something on you if you are not comfortable with moving forward. I can honestly say that I have been extremely happy with the entire staff at Sculpt and would highly recommend this office to anyone that wants a one on one experience to where you don't feel like you are just another number. WAY TO GO TO THE TEAM AT SCULPT....you definitely have what it takes to make your patients feel very cared for which is very rare.
