I had the best rhinoplasty experience, with the most natural nose, with Dr Samer Bassilios Habre. He explained everything before surgery, took some pictures and simulated how the result would be. He was very confident, and assured me that my nose will look very natural and people won’t tell I had an operation. I visited 2 doctors before him, but they didn’t give me enough time, I was convinced with Dr Samer and decided to go ahead with surgery. After surgery, he took out the cast from my nose and the sutures at one week. I had some swelling and blue color after surgery, but was very acceptable at one week. Now, at 9 months, my nose looks great, and very natural. I look very good in pictures and selfies.

What is Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture)?

Abdominal etching (liposculpture) is a cosmetic surgery procedure where an individual’s abdominal muscles are defined using liposuction. Unlike a traditional tummy tuck that involves the removal of significant amounts of fat and skin. Abdominal Etching is best suited for those who are already close to their ideal weight since no skin and only small amounts of fat will be removed as the surgeon is sculpting the appearance of the abdomen.

 

Abdominal etching was developed in the early 1990’s and its popularity has been steadily increasing for the last 20 years. Both men and women want to undergo this surgery so they can achieve the chiseled abs and flat stomach that are eye-catching today.

 

Abdominal etching is not a weight loss surgery. If you are having weight issues then it is best to look into alternative treatments that will give you your desired results.

 

If you have already had a tummy tuck or liposuction, then you can travel abroad for abdominal etching. This procedure cannot be carried out at the same time but rather at a later date.

 

A Good Candidate for Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture)

During a tummy tuck procedure, loose muscles are tightened using stitches. Abdominal etching is only carried out for patients who already have reasonably tight muscles and are seeking to extensively define them. If you require more than what this type of plastic surgery offers, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck.

 

Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture) Procedure

Abdominal etching surgery is done under general or local anesthetic. If you choose local anesthetic, the plastic surgeon may give you sedatives as well. It is normally an outpatient procedure so you will not be required to stay overnight in a hospital. You will, however, be monitored for a few hours after the surgery to assure stability.

 

Before the surgery, the plastic surgeon will mark on your abdomen indicating where your muscles are when you flex. The markings will allow the surgeon to introduce the grooves with a special cannula during the procedure. Liposuction is carried out through tiny incisions made on your body to implicate these grooves. The incisions will take a couple of weeks to heal.

 

Average Duration of Abdominal Etching Surgery: 2-3 hours
