Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that eliminates excess fat that won’t go away despite rigorous dieting and exercise. Laser liposuction in Manhattan is a highly versatile surgical procedure that can treat stubborn fat deposits in various areas such as the abdomen, hips, back, legs, arms, and even the face.

While regular liposuction removes stubborn fat, abdominal etching or six-pack liposculpture focuses on defining the abdominal muscles by selectively removing excess fat and sculpting the underlying tissue. Abdominal etching in Manhattan is an ideal option for those who have not been able to develop six-pack abs even after strenuous workouts. The treatment can provide you with well- defined and chiseled abs.

How is Laser-assisted Abdominal Etching Performed?

This plastic surgery procedure sculpts the abdomen by selectively removing abdominal fat to enhance the underlying musculature. Abdominal etching in Manhattan is performed using the laser-assisted Smartlipo Triplex device.

Small incisions are made at the treatment site to insert the laser-assisted tiny cannula of the Smartlipo Triplex device. This workstation features three laser wavelengths-1440, 1064, and 1320 nm-that a skilled surgeon can combine to deliver the optimal level of etching.  It allows for targeted fat removal and sculpting, and results in defined, toned abdominal muscles.

How Long Do Ab Etching Results Last?

The longevity of the results achieved through abdominal etching can vary based on several factors and considerations:

  • Individual components: Age, genetics, skin elasticity, lifestyle, and general health are key variables that might affect how long the effects of abdominal etching last. Compared to older people with looser skin, results last longer in younger people with high skin elasticity.
  • Changes in weight: The outcomes of abdominal etching can be impacted by significant weight changes. After the procedure, significant weight gain can cause fat to accumulate in the treated area, affecting the definition of the contours. To keep your results intact, it is crucial to maintain a stable weight.
  • Exercise and muscle tone: Abdominal etching makes existing muscle definition appear more pronounced. A healthy diet and consistent abdominal-targeted exercise on a daily basis is essential to preserve the results. Exercise can strengthen and tone the underlying muscles and maintain the sculpted appearance.
  • Surgical expertise: The procedure’s longevity may also be influenced by the surgeon’s expertise and experience. To achieve the best results, choose an experienced liposuction surgeon with experience in using Smartlipo for body sculpting.

Abdominal etching removes fat cells, preventing new fat cells from developing in the treated area, thus supporting the notion that abdominal etching provides long-lasting or permanent results. However, patients should be prepared to maintain a stable weight following surgery if they wish to look sculpted and fit over the long term.

A person over the age of 18, in good health, with no significant medical conditions, and with minor pockets of persistent abdominal fat is considered an ideal candidate for abdominal etching. He or she must be at their desired weight and have reasonable expectations about the outcome.

Patients should anticipate some minor discomfort following abdominal etching treatment. There will be some swelling and bruising in the treated areas and wearing the compression garment as instructed can help ease these side effects. Patients also need to refrain from heavy lifting and intense activity for the time advised. Most people can expect to be back at work in a week. After a recovery period of approximately six months, the results of your abdominal etching procedure will become noticeable, revealing well-defined and sculpted abs.
