Complete Guide to 6 Pack Abs Surgery

Body awareness has reached an all-time high in recent years, with everyone desiring to appear unique and desirable. Probably, you won’t be able to achieve your aesthetic objectives alone through exercise and food. Weight reduction, weightlifting, and athletic training have relied on diet and exercise for years. Nevertheless, no matter how well you follow a diet and exercise routine, persistent residues of fat may remain. Because the abdominal muscles contain tiny layers of fat between them that are particularly difficult to eliminate, even rigorous exercise fails to remove them. Abdominal fat is a form of fat used by the body to protect vital organs, reduce heat loss, and defend against external physical stress. Subcutaneous fat is highly resistive to exercise and diet since it plays an important role in the body. Many people go on incredible weight-loss journeys but fail miserably. This might be demoralising, especially if you’ve been working so hard to get a washboard six-pack but haven’t been successful.

You may see more sharp, sculpted abdominals to go along with your powerful body thanks to Dr Rajat Gupta’s excellent technique for 6 Pack Abs surgery or Hi-Definition Liposuction for the abdomen. Dr Rajat can carve away the unwanted subcutaneous fat from your abdominal muscles and bring you the 6-pack of your desires with abdominal etching.

What is Abdominal etching or 6 pack abs surgery?

Six pack abs! The name itself is synonymous with sleekness, style, and strength. These abdomen contours are desired by one and all. Primarily, liposuction surgery was intended to remove fat from a restricted number of body locations for body sculpting. Advanced liposuction procedures and the use of technologies such as laser and 3D liposuction have broadened the scope of body reshaping surgery. The growth of medical technology has increased safety and accelerated the recuperation process.

However, this challenging effort can be easily accomplished with the help of six-pack abs 3-D liposuction, which involves the removal of tough fat layers with liposuction and the sucked fat being reinjected into the muscle for shaping, culminating in natural-looking 6-pack abs.

Abdominal Etching, also known as liposculpture, is a surgical procedure where unwanted fat around the midsection is strategically uplifted from the body in an attempt to contour and showcase the abdominal muscles – creating a 6-pack almost overnight. Since its development in the 1970’s, the improved procedure and practice of liposculpture have resulted in a safer, faster procedure with more impactful results.

    How can abdominal etching surgery provide the appearance of a six-pack abdomen?

    Abdominal etching eliminates a small amount of fat around a person’s natural abdominal muscle outlines and accentuates the prominence of underlying muscles by thinning the abdominal skin. The surgery is for persons already in good condition and has just one to two cm of fat beneath their abdominal skin. Liposuction is not recommended for individuals with big fat deposits who wish to minimize the dimension of their belly or lose weight dramatically. People who have a stretched-out abdomen should first have an Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) treatment to tighten the muscles.


    Who is an ideal candidate for Abdominal etching?

    Abdominal etching starts by using the process of liposuction by highlighting the abdominal swelling and goes on to remove the excessive fat by suction to create a sculpted ab appearance. The procedure gives a more defined abdomen by removing excess fat and reshaping the abdominal region.

    Those already at an ideal weight of less than 30 BMI are ideal candidates for the treatment. This is crucial since belly etching should be considered a body shaping technique rather than a weight loss strategy. When abdominal etching is combined with other operations that tighten sagging skin, such as a Tummy Tuck, the result is a more sculpted abdomen than with abdominal etching separately. Eligible applicants must also be nonsmokers or can quit smoking completely before, during, and after the treatment.

    What are the different types of surgical six-packs?

    After liposuction, a consistent, extremely thin layer of fat is left in position, and it draws attention to the muscles beneath the skin. If you don’t maintain your weight, your six-pack abs will go and be replaced by fat.


    3-D 6 pack abs surgery

    To draw attention to the muscle, severe liposuction is used on the muscle’s margins. The added benefit of 3-D liposuction is that the six-pack persists even if you gain weight afterwards.


    4-D 6 pack abs surgery

    Liposuction in four dimensions is one step forward from three-dimensional liposuction. Fat is reinjected into the muscle to make it stick out and appear more prominent. If you’re serious about losing weight, this is the best option for you.


    Benefits of Abdominal Etching

    Before scheduling your personal consultation with Dr Rajat, it is important to understand the various benefits of abdominal etching.

    • A Chiselled, Sculpted Appearance 

    6-pack abs are the hallmark of a true athlete as per the fitness industry. But in reality, they are hard to achieve and even harder to maintain – especially as you age over the years. By using liposuction around your abdominal muscles, Dr. Rajat can strategically underline your naturally resting muscle. In his procedure, he uses a cannula to extract enveloping fat from the area, including the abdomen.

    • Minimal Downtime 

    Because Dr. Rajat uses advanced and the latest liposuction techniques, recovery from this procedure is less than traditional liposuction procedures. Whether through tumescent, ultrasound-assisted, or laser-assisted liposuction, Dr Rajat’s contemporary approach to liposuction is more effective and requires far lesser downtime than most other traditional techniques.

    • Permanent Results 

    After recovery from this procedure, there is no worrying about returning the extracted fat cells. The fatty tissue that has been discarded, is gone permanently. But this doesn’t mean new fatty tissue can’t replace it. At this stage, it is important to remain at relatively the same weight you were when you underwent the abdominal etching procedure. This will ensure that your results stay permanent and unaltered.

    How to prepare for an Abdominal Etching procedure?

    It’s vital to do the following to prepare for your abdominal etching procedure:

    • Prohibit smoke. This is critical since nicotine has been shown to restrict blood vessels, making your surgery and recovery process more difficult.
    • Drinking alcohol pre and post-surgery is not recommended. Alcohol inhibits the body’s normal blood-clotting reaction, resulting in increased bleeding during surgical operation and recovery.
    • Stay away from blood thinners like aspirin and ibuprofen. This is critical because, similar to alcohol, the body’s natural response after surgery is to clot, controlling the body from losing too much blood during surgery. On the other hand, natural clotting is impossible when the blood is weaker. You may raise the possibility of losing too much blood following surgery if your blood is thinned.
    • Arrange for transportation home. Because you will be sedated throughout your abdominal etching process, you will not be able to drive yourself home following the operation.

    How is Abdominal-etching surgery planned?

    Before the procedure, the surgeon will make accurate markings of your abdominal muscle while you are in a standing position. These markings will further act as a guide for selective removal of fat to highlight your muscular details.

    What is the procedure for Abdominal Etching?

    Your surgeon will initially provide anaesthesia on the day of your surgery. He will make many ones- to two-millimetre cuts in your belly button or inside the inherent creases of your abdomen after it has taken effect. These little incisions are made in regions that are easy to conceal. He will next start removing the fat surrounding each abdominal muscle, depending on the liposuction procedure chosen. This portion of the procedure demands aesthetic accuracy, which only plastic surgeons like Dr Rajat can provide. Dr Rajat sutures the wound after meticulously shaping each abdominal muscle. You can easily go home the same day as your surgery because it is an outpatient treatment.

    What is the recovery time for this procedure?

    In the days and weeks following abdominal etching, your surgeon will give you precise instructions on what you can and cannot do. This includes not lifting anything weighing more than 5 kg. After ab etching surgery, you will be allowed to shower within 48 hours. You must follow your doctor’s advice to reduce your chance of issues.

    Those who work in sedentary jobs should anticipate being off for only a few days. If you work in physically demanding occupations, on the other hand, you should avoid them for a longer length of time. The amount of time it takes to recover varies from person to person, based on various factors such as how the patient reacts to the operation and how many areas were liposuctioned. During your visit, you and Dr Rajat will evaluate an approximate recovery schedule and what you can do to achieve the best possible healing within that period.

    Light exercises can be resumed 2 weeks following the surgery, and cardio exercises can be restarted by 6 weeks. Strenuous exercises involving the abdomen, such as those whioch involve lifting heavy weights, can be restarted after 3 months.

    You will soon notice your carved, sculpted results when the swelling decreases following surgery. Each abdominal muscle will be well-defined and visible. Like a bodybuilder, your obliques will enhance your sides. Finally, you’ll be able to see the results of all the hard work you’ve put into your body. It’s crucial to remember that these effects may last a lifetime with a balanced diet and regular exercise!

    What are some of the limitations of the Abdominal etching procedure?

    If you’re concerned about managing a healthy weight, this surgery is recommended for long-term outcomes. The following factors may obstruct the procedure’s outcomes:

    • Excessive weight
    • Pregnancy
    • Your abs may not be as prominent as they are shortly after the surgery due to the natural ageing process of your body.
