Six Pack Surgery
Many men and women that covet the ever-so-popular “Chocolate Abs” try very hard to build and define abdominal muscles, devoting much of their time to long sessions at the gym, or at home, using the many “ab builder” machines advertised everywhere on TV and the Internet.
However, even with strenuous abdominal exercise, not everybody is able to achieve athletic six pack definition, finding it difficult to increase the volume and thickness of the abdominal muscles (or to hypertrophy them, as this practice is technically known).
Most people simply don’t have the time to exercise more than 8-10 hours a week. Not to mention, abdominal muscles are not the only ones that need work.
Abdominal etching, or six pack liposuction (liposculpture) is a surgical operation that involves sucking fat in a controlled fashion, literally sculpting and revealing the abdominal muscles that lie underneath. The results that come from this procedure can’t even begin to compare to having spent your whole life doing crunches during any of your spare moments.
Following the six pack surgery, patients get to go home the very same day, as it is an outpatient ambulatory procedure, returning to their daily activities after 3-6 days; an abdominal binder or compression garment will be needed for approximately 3 weeks to help with the muscle definition, this is because when liposuction is performed, an array of tunnels is created in the fat, and the compression garment obliterates these tunnels to prevent them from filling up with fluids. Once 3 weeks have gone by and the area is healed, this garment can be discarded.
Patients can expect to see results as soon as three weeks after the surgery, however, six pack definition of the abdomen will become increasingly more obvious and visible once the final results are achieved 2-3 months later.
