The Abdominal Etching Procedure
The abdominal etching procedure usually takes only an hour, and can be performed as an outpatient procedure under either local or general anesthesia. Before surgery, the doctor will outline the patient’s abdominal muscles and use these lines to serve as a guide during surgery. During the procedure, several small incisions are made in the naval or the natural creases of the abdomen, where they are inconspicuous. A cannula, or a flexible tube, is then inserted through the incisions to sculpt the abs by removing excess fat along the lines of the patient’s abdominal muscles. The four or five remaining scars are very small – only about an eighth or a quarter inch in length.
Abdominal Etching Recovery
For a few weeks after abdominal etching surgery, patients will need to wear a compression garment, which should only be removed when bathing. During liposuction recovery, patients will experience bruising, swelling, and some pain, which can be eased with proper care and medication. It is important that postoperative patients limit exercise and avoid lifting weight over ten pounds and putting any pressure on the abdominal area. The full results typically become visible within six months, after the body has had ample time to heal.
