What is Ab Etching Surgery?
Looking fit is a must for anyone wanting to look young and healthy. For some people, it can be a great challenge to make their abs look more prominent even after strict diets and workout regimens. Abdominal etching is a liposuction technique that aims specifically to sculpt abs. Just like traditional liposuction, abdominal etching utilizes a suction method to get rid of excessive fat deposits around your abdominal area. Unlike regular liposuction, ab etching focuses on removing fat and shaping the abdominal wall strategically to create a look of irresistible and muscular six-packs.
You are an ideal candidate for abdominal etching if you:
Would like to look more toned and fit
Want to look more muscular
Want to look more approachable and presentable
Wish to improve your confidence
Are healthy and at a stable weight
Do not have obesity
Have done your research on the procedure and the possible risks
Recovery periods vary from patient to patient. Most patients require around 4 to 6 weeks for recovery. You may return back to a desk job after 1-2 weeks and resume other activities after at least 6 weeks. You might have to wear your compression garment for around 6 months. Your surgeon will prepare a customized post-operative recovery plan based on your procedure and needs.
As the Voila health care team, we will ensure that you have gone through all the necessary health checkups before your surgery, and always be there for you during recovery to ensure you feel your best the whole time.
Aftercare is as important as the surgery itself when it comes to boosting the effects of the procedure.
Quitting smoking and drinking during the healing process are recommended, as smoking and alcohol intake might slow down the healing and potentially affect the surgery results.
If necessary, your doctor may prescribe you painkillers.
Patience is key. A better you is on the way!
