Abdominal Etching

We use the best and latest Abdominal Etching techniques to guarantee you get the best results.

What Is Abdominal Etching?

Abdominal etching, also known as six-pack liposculpture, is a plastic surgery procedure that will make your abs look chiseled. This procedure is meant for individuals who already have a healthy diet, regular exercise routine, and a muscular stomach. Abdominal etching can help you etch out a washboard stomach without the rigorous workouts. If a patient just wants a flatter midsection, traditional liposuction might be the better option.

What to expect after Abdominal Etching

Results can be seen instantly; however, it can take up to six months to see the full final results. Generally, results are permanent if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and normal weight range.


The ideal candidate for abdominal etching is an athletic individual with already pronounced abdominal muscles. Even with a consistently healthy diet and exercise regimen, it can be difficult to achieve a defined appearance. An individual with large, strong abdominal muscles can still have difficulties achieving this well-defined look. If you know the frustrations of working hard but still having pockets of fat covering your underlying abs, you may be a candidate for abdominal etching. However, the procedure is not limited to such individuals, as some of our patients request this procedure following a tummy tuck or abdominal liposuction in order to really make their abs stand out.

Is abdominal etching painful? Since general anesthesia is used during the procedure, patients do not feel any pain. Once your procedure is complete, you may experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort.
Does abdominal etching leave scars? All surgical procedures leave behind scars, but scars from ab etching are very well hidden.


Abdominal etching is like other forms of liposculpture. With standard liposuction equipment, targeted pockets of fat are removed in order to modify the contour of the patient’s abs. The fat that is covering the abs is permanently removed with small incisions that are sometimes made in the belly button. These small incisions are what earns this procedure the “etching” part of its name. The procedure typically takes about an hour to complete and is normally performed as an outpatient procedure.
