The A to Z of Six Packs Abs Surgery – Abdominoplasty

There are many reasons someone chooses cosmetic surgery. As a medical remedy, it is more popular today than ever before. More people opt for it for a simple reason: it gives the bodies they want  and makes them feel good about themselves.

Let us take liposuction as an example.

Liposuction targets the stubborn fat – the subcutaneous fat – lying below the skin layer. This is the fat that persists, no matter how hard you try to burn it. You may do days and weeks or cardio, but it always remains. You do all those crunches, and when you press your abdomen, you feel the hardened muscles. However, the band of fat continues. It mocks you every time you look in the mirror.

Now, if you are in good health, liposuction helps you here. It targets this stubborn fat and removes it. Therefore, you get the flat abdomen you want and deserve after putting in months of work.

How does cosmetic surgery help people?

The primary way cosmetic surgery helps people is by boosting self-esteem. Wanting immediate results after working for them for ages is the unfortunate reality of several people.

When they do not get these results, they feel dejected and hate what they see in the mirror. In the long run, this kind of self-hatred takes a mental and emotional toll. It could result in more serious psychological problems like depression or it could push people to anorexia or bulimia.

The problem with such disorders is that once you start, you cannot stop. You spend almost the entirety of your life in recovery. Cosmetic surgery prevents this. By getting surgery as a healthy person, you stay healthy. Especially with the kind of progress cosmetic surgery has made, the procedures are very safe and ensure a speedy recovery. The sophistication of the methods used today enhance the results and make them look much more natural and aesthetic.

This is why many people choose cosmetic surgery. It genuinely helps them feel better about themselves in a much healthier way.

One of the most common surgeries that people turn to, to feel better about themselves is the six-pack abs surgery. Also known as Abdominoplasty or Hi-Definition Liposuction, this procedure has gained popularity for giving people the body they desire.

 

Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction – Why it Exists

Imagine that you love working out. You love how your body feels after you sweat out all the toxins. You perceive all your muscles are toning in your arms and legs. Yet, there is one area you cannot help but feel is not measuring up: your abs.

Washboard abs has long been a staple of beauty. Whether they are well defined, barely outlined or just a toned abdomen, they always look attractive. This is because they look immaculate and polished. They are smooth and hard and feel unbreakable.

If this is your goal, it is perfectly understandable. But what happens when this seems unachievable? What happens when you can feel your abs tightening and hardening under a layer of fat?

Or maybe you have been diligently doing crunches for months and see no difference. Sure, it feels more laborious, but there is no physical proof. When you look in the mirror, you still see someone with a pudgy stomach looking back at you. So, what then? How do you combat this?

Well, you combat this with Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction.

Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction is called the six-pack abs surgery for a reason. It is a body-sculpting technique that ensures your final result looks very natural and defined. This procedure is especially a godsend for people who do all kinds of ab exercises every day. It gives them the abs they desire.

 

Are the results permanent?

Like most liposuction procedures, the results are not permanent. They are immediate and look amazing, but you need to continue working out and maintain them.

When fat is removed from a section, it is actually the fat cells removed from that area. These cells cannot come back. However, if you slip into unhealthy habits, the remaining fat cells in the area can grow. This can ultimately cause failure to the results you coveted in the first place.

Therefore, exercising after getting your surgery is a must. It is the only way to ensure that your results remain. It also keeps you fit and in shape. This is a good thing. It means you are kept healthy, and your immune system is strengthened.

Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction – How it is Done

There are several factors to take into account before going for Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction in Delhi. The main thing is the kind of results you want. While wanting natural-looking results is a given, you need to maintain certain standards that guarantee these results.

 

How do you get the best results?

Well, there are three things you need to focus on when determining your results. These are:

  • The Surgeon
  • The Centre
  • The Techniques

Holding all three to the highest standard guarantees much better results.

The Surgeon

At the forefront is your surgeon – the person who will do your procedure. They ideally should have a board-certification, and you should get some testimonials. Their expertise needs to be set in stone.

Remember, Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction, like every other form of cosmetic surgery, is about body-contouring. This is not just a surgical procedure. Body-contouring is an art. Your surgeon is the artist, and your body is the canvas. You need to treat your body like the canvas it is. Find yourself an excellent surgeon who knows what they are doing. After all, you don’t want a sub-par artist working on you, do you?

Your Centre

You may have an excellent surgeon, but if they do not have an equally well-equipped centre, their expertise does not matter. You need a centre with state-of-the-art technology. A centre which can truly provide for all your needs and give you the results you deserve.

In the case of Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction, this kind of equipment refers to the MicroAire and VASER liposuction technologies. These technologies give your centre an edge and ensure that you get the best results. Additionally, they also ensure a speedy recovery. Although we will explore these technologies in more detail shortly, suffice to say your centre needs to have it.

Your Technique

Now, you may get an incredible-sounding surgeon and a gorgeously-equipped centre only to find that your surgeon does not actually know how to use the latest cosmetic surgery technology. This is a huge red flag. Traditional methods of cosmetic surgery work but not nearly as well as these modern, sophisticated methods.

You should not settle for anything less.

Getting a surgeon with the necessary techniques and skill is of paramount importance. Only then do you get the results you truly desire.

Now, that you know what to look for, let’s go into the Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction procedure itself.

Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction – the Procedure

Before we start talking about the procedure, we need to talk about the goal of the procedure. The goal is not just to give you a six-pack and washboard abs. It is more than that. It aims for a very natural-looking contour.

And this requires some specialised techniques. These techniques include removing fat around the natural dips of the abdominal muscles. Such targeted removal ensures that the results look even better. This kind of procedure is also known as abdominal etching.

Abdominal etching is the ideal way of describing this procedure. Since that is literally what the procedure entails, it literally sculpts your body, so your abs become visible.

The best part of this procedure is that it looks very natural. This is because it depends on the pre-existing muscular contours on your abdomen. It does not try carving something out which does not exist. If it did, it would look very unnatural. Instead, your surgeon traces the natural contours of your body and sculpts it accordingly. This way, you get the most accurate results. You get washboard abs that look completely real.

This is primarily done through liposuction.

 

Liposuction – What it is and How it is Done

Although we have already discussed this, let’s go into further detail about what exactly liposuction is. Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery technique with good reason. The level of sophistication it has achieved today makes it possible for very natural-looking and painless results. This increases its appeal.

What’s more? It has the ability to target fat pockets.

Yes, that’s right – it can target the fat on your body. This makes it ideal for people who work really hard to lose fat. You should note here that losing fat does not equal to losing weight. You can lose a maximum of 4kgs through liposuction, and even this may be dangerous. Always consult with your doctor about how much fat you can safely remove. You should also note that more fat removal can mean more unnatural results. You need to account for that before your liposuction procedure.

Which Areas Liposuction Targets

Several areas can benefit from liposuction. These include:

  • Waistline
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Thighs and buttocks
  • Knee shape
  • Calves
  • Chests with visible pectorals
  • Six-pack abs

Each area can be expertly toned to look beautiful and aesthetic.

Liposuction clearly has a range of advantages. With modern technological developments, these advantages extend to the kind of recovery time. The procedure is now virtually painless and scar-free. With incisions being incredibly thin and leaving the faintest scars, liposuction benefits from high-quality techniques that ensure the ideal results.

These technologies take the form of MicroAire and VASER. They allow for power-assisted liposuction (PAL) and ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL), respectively.

 

MicroAire (PAL)

PAL is a technique where a cannula is inserted into the fat layer and then moved back and forth rapidly, breaking up the fat cells. It also vibrates, adding to the breaking up. Since the incision is thin and the instrument is small, this technique offers a lot of control to the surgeon. Therefore, they successfully remove fat through suction. This fat is largely unharmed. This means it can be reused.

This way, MicroAire greatly helps the surgeon in their quest for control. It allows them to sculpt out the desired results precisely.

 

VASER (UAL)

UAL, as the name suggests, uses ultrasound waves to melt and emulsify the fat. However, it serves a double purpose.

The VASER machine’s cannula has rings around the tip. These rings emit the ultrasound waves. These waves emulsify the fat, yes, but they also produce heat. This is a good thing. The heat is produced in the subcutaneous fat layer. This fat layer lies right beneath the skin layer. Therefore, UAL heats the skin from underneath, making it contract.

This means that the tightened skin comfortably falls over the new muscle structure. Now that the fat is removed, the abdominal muscles are well-defined. When the skin drapes itself over this definition, it highlights all the dips and the rises of the muscles. Therefore, you see the final result immediately and very clearly. It also looks very natural.

By combining MicroAire and VASER, you get a nearly trauma-free procedure that gives you the six-pack abs you desire.

But why stop there? Let us suppose you want something more? While this gives you a certain amount of definition, it still looks more toned. You signed up for washboard abs. Not mild definition.

Well, with the right surgeon, you can easily get that too. How? Through a little procedure called fat grafting.

Six Pack Abs Surgery for men - Dr Rajat Gupta

Fat Grafting as a Part of Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction

Fat grafting is a very common procedure along with liposuction. Liposuction removes fat and that fat can be treated and put back into the body. It is a natural way to enhance a body part slightly. It achieves more natural-looking and aesthetic results.

In the six-pack abs surgery, fat grafting plays a similar role.

When you remove fat via PAL or UAL, you mostly get undamaged fat cells. This a good thing. This means you can treat them and put them back into the body. For women, a lot of times, they may want to correct hip dips, augment their breasts or buttocks or other such procedures. They may even want washboard, clear-cut abs. Men usually want clear-cut abs.

Fat grafting achieves this effortlessly.

You see, when you remove the subcutaneous fat from over the muscle layer, you are left with mounds and dips. Your natural abdominal muscles have these mounds and dips. While liposuction typically removes fat from the dips so it can carve out the abs, this does not necessarily achieve the washboard abs. This is where fat grafting comes in.

Part of the Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction procedure is marking out the abs. This means that you already have an outline for where to place the treated fat. Placing the fat on the mounds makes them stand out more. Just a little fat, not too much. Just enough for that gorgeous contour, you want.

This achieves the washboard look. It enhances the final result. It is also perfectly safe since the fat that your surgeon puts back into your body is yours. There is no reason for your body to reject it.

This way, you get washboard abs quickly and easily through Abdominoplasty’s Hi-Definition Liposuction.

Getting Redos

Although not recommended, there is the possibility of the procedure going slightly wrong. In that case, you may find yourself with uneven results where some mounds on your abs look more significant than others. This can look very unnatural but, luckily, can be corrected.

All you need is a board-certified surgeon who understands the problem. Then you can get the results you desire.

 

The Recovery Timeline

After surgery, there is always some swelling and bruising on the abdomen. You may experience pain and discomfort post-surgery, but this can be easily managed with painkillers. The post-surgery care usually determines your recovery time too. If you are diligent with that and follow the guidelines offered by the surgeon religiously, you may just see the quickest recovery.

Most patients resume a regular work schedule within one week and incorporate exercise within three weeks. Over time, the incision lines fade and become almost nonexistent. Patients are advised to wear a ‘prescribed pressure garment’ during the first 4-6 weeks to keep the contours as designed during surgery.

As time progresses, your results become more and more evident. You get more definition. You cannot expect instant results. This is like any surgery – it needs healing time before you can see the proper results. There is no way you can get abs instantly. But this surgery is a step in the right direction.
