What Is Abdominal Etching?

Today, our lifestyle and nutrition have massively changed from the past. The tendency to do sedentary and restricted activities along with consuming fatty and processed foods has increased fat in various parts of the body such as the abdomen.

On the other hand, factors such as aging, intermittent weight gain and pregnancy in women cause loose tissue in the central areas of the body such as the abdomen and hips.

Increased belly fat, in addition to cardiovascular risks and underlying diseases such as diabetes, causes the abdomen to lose its natural shape. Fat accumulated in the abdomen covers the muscles of the abdominal wall leading to deformity. Excess belly fat also limits exercise and daily activities while raising the risk of many other illnesses in the long run.

Such risks and problems have led people and doctors to look for ways to remove excess belly fat and improve the condition of the abdominal muscles. This excess fat may not be eliminated by methods such as diet or exercise. Also, many people are unable to add regular exercise into their daily schedules. Abdominal etching brings six pack muscles through surgery. On the other hand, this operation is not in conflict with exercise and a healthy lifestyle and can be combined with regular activity and exercise to create a much more lasting result.

Abdominal etching is not only for women. It has been facing an increasing demand for men. This surgery is used for all those with abdominal deformity and dissatisfaction and brings them closer to the self-image they desire.

In abdominoplasty, accumulated excess fat in the abdomen is removed from the body through various techniques, and as a result, the abdominal muscles appear as prominent as possible.

Methods of Abdominal Etching

In this procedure, the surgeon uses a small cannula to remove excess fat from the abdomen. In lipomatic, if necessary, the extracted fats can be used to shape other parts of the body.

Similar to lipolysis, in liposuction fats are first broken down and then removed from the body.

In this method, fats are broken down and removed from the body using laser or sound waves.

Tummy Tuck
In abdominoplasty, the abdomen is cut and excess abdominal tissue, including skin and some fat, is removed. The abdominal muscles are also shaped as desired. This method is more complex than other methods, but it also leads to clearer results.

In this method, fats are broken down by physical movements and removed from the body in a relatively healthy way.

Ultra Z
Ultra Z boosts the fat breakdown procedure using sound waves.

In Iran, a combination of two or more of the above mentioned methods may be used in abdominal etching surgery to achieve a more lasting and prominent result. For example, excess fat can be removed by lipomatics first, then excess abdominal tissue can be removed by abdominoplasty surgery.

In unsustainable and less standard methods, belly fat may be cut and shaped into six packs. This technique does not yield very durable results and does not cause fat loss.

Having a healthy lifestyle, proper nutrition and regular exercise is an integral part of abdominal etching surgery and helps to make the surgical results last longer.

How It Is Done

In Iran, abdominal etching often requires general anesthesia and depending on the extent of the operation, it takes between one to two hours on average, . If additional treatment is necessary the surgery may take longer.

In liposuction, two or more holes, that are a few millimeters deep, are first made in the abdomen and waistline. Then a special tool called canola enters the abdomen through these holes and to deteriorate the fat. This process will damage the fat cells. The operator will eventually remove the crushed fat from the body through suction.

Lipomatic is somewhat similar to liposuction. However, it does not damage the fat cells and keeps them ready for reinjection.

In lipolysis, instead of canola and physical blows, laser waves break the fats down of a specific wavelength and removed from the body. The rest of the fat is shed by the body over time.

If you need tummy tuck surgery, the surgeon will make a vertical or horizontal incision in your abdomen and remove excess tissue, including skin and the stubborn fat. The surgeon will then suture the muscles to the abdominal wall and the sides to contract slightly. You can only perform abdominoplasty in the lower part of the umbilicus in a limited way, or the doctor may also open the upper abdomen and remove excess tissue. In this method, the surgeon also determines the position of the umbilicus.

In some techniques such as abdominoplasty the surgeon inserts tubes called drains under your skin at the operation site to remove discharge and blood from the site once the surgery is over.

  • People who are overweight by more than 30%;
  • Women who plan to become pregnant in the future;
  • People under 20 or over 60 years old;

  • Avoid heavy exercise for at least two to four weeks, but daily activities and light walking will greatly improve your physical condition.
