Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture) Surgery

Do you consider yourself to be a fit person? Do you exercise regularly and follow a healthy diet, but still cannot achieve the look of “six-pack” abs?

If you are a generally healthy individual who desires a dramatic improvement in muscle definition throughout your abdomen, you might benefit from surgical abdominal etching with VIDA Hospital in Tijuana.


What is Lipsculpture

Patients come from San Diego, Calif., and other areas of the world to receive this treatment from Dr. Castaneda, our specialist on plastic surgery for men. Abdominal etching is a form of high-definition liposculpture that is designed to target the abdomen. Appropriate candidates for this procedure are generally fit, but cannot achieve the athletic-looking muscle definition throughout the abdomen that they desire. (Abdominal etching is not a tool for weight loss.) With abdominal etching, patients can finally achieve the look of six-pack abdominal muscles.

The Liposculpture Procedure

Abdominal etching cosmetic surgery is one of the least invasive forms of body contouring surgery. This outpatient procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia with intravenous (IV) sedation. The entire procedure takes about two to three hours to perform.

To start the procedure, the doctor makes a few 2- to 3-mm incisions in the treatment area, strategically positioning them in the navel or the natural abdominal folds so they are easily concealed by the shape of the body. Using the incisions, he inserts a thin, hollow tube called a “cannula” into the treatment area to remove excess fat.The doctor specifically removes fat from along the abdominal muscle lines to provide a sculpted, well-defined muscular appearance throughout the treatment area.


Abdominal Etching and Fat Transfer

Abdominal etching can be combined with other cosmetic surgery procedures, such as fat transfer techniques. With fat transfer, the plastic surgeon purifies the harvested fat cells and then re-injects them into another area of the body requiring enhancement, such as the buttocks (known as Brazilian butt lift) or the breasts, for fat transfer breast augmentation.

What to Expect After Abdominal Etching

After surgery, patients are released into the care of an authorized individual to recover at home, or they can recuperate in VIDA’s stylish recovery boutique, where 24-hour nursing care and luxurious amenities are available.

Patients are generally able to return to work or their everyday activities about three to four days following the procedure. During this time, they should rest as much as possible. They can resume their exercise routine about three weeks after surgery, or as directed by the doctor.
