Let’s face it: Men are inundated with images of washboard abs almost every day. From fitness stars on Instagram to caped superheroes, it seems as though everyone is touting a six-pack, or even an eight-pack.
But getting these washboard abs isn’t exactly easy, especially if you’re not getting paid to work out all day. These abs can only be achieved through intensive exercise and a rigorous diet. In some cases, genetics may make it almost impossible to get washboard abs, as some men are prone to carrying extra fat around the stomach.
That’s where abdominal etching comes into play!
What is Abdominal Etching?
Abdominal etching is a specific plastic surgery procedure that’s used to remove fat from the stomach to reveal the washboard abs lurking underneath. Ideal candidates for this procedure are men who are already following a healthy diet and lifestyle regimen, but are having trouble losing excess fat around the abdomen.
The procedure itself is safe, straightforward, and highly effective. It can be done under general or local anesthesia, depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed. A small cannula is inserted into an incision and used to sculpt the abs while manually removing the excess fat. The resulting surgical scars are very small; in most cases, they’re about an eighth of an inch big, so no one will be able to guess at the work you’ve had done.
Abdominal etching results can last for a significant period of time, provided that patients continue to follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen. This surgical procedure does not prevent against the formation of new fat cells.
