Six Pack Surgery In Bangkok, Thailand

Many men and women devote a lot of time and effort to build abdominal muscles. However, not everybody can achieve the athletic six-pack definition with just exercise, even with strenuous abdominal activities. 

Abdominal Six-Pack Surgery or Abdominal Etching is a cosmetic procedure that involves removing excess fat around the patient’s abdominal area. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with Liposuction to remove fat from other areas, such as the flanks and lower back. 

Like Liposuction, Six-Pack Surgery removes fat deposits from underneath your skin. However, instead of removing fat from the midsection, this type of cosmetic procedure molds and shapes a patient’s abdominal wall to make the abs muscles look more prominent. 

When done carefully by an experienced doctor, Abdominal Etching can significantly deepen the natural grooves on a patient’s body and result in a visibly toned midsection. 


VASER Abdominal Six-Pack Surgery
VASER Abdominal Six-Pack Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat the entire abdomen. The clinician will create several small incisions in hidden regions throughout the abdomen wherein a VASER probe would be inserted. 

The VASER would melt away and remove fat from the superficial layer and deep layer to help create more defined abdominal muscles above the navel. 

The VASER technique could only remove subcutaneous fat deposits found underneath the skin. This procedure cannot remove excess intra-abdominal fat, which is located in between a patient’s organs and torso. 

Abdominal Six-Pack Surgery can also be performed on female patients and would follow the same procedure like that done in males.


Who is a good candidate for Six-Pack Surgery?
As with any surgical procedure, a patient has to meet a certain set of criteria. The ideal candidate for Abdominal Six-Pack Surgery should meet the following factors:

  • A person without obesity
  • Healthy individuals who do not have pre-existing medical conditions
  • Non-smokers
  • Men or women with well-toned underlying abdominals
  • Patients who underwent a Tummy Tuck or Liposuction
  • Individuals with realistic expectations
Patients who wish to undergo Abdominal Etching should also be healthy enough to safely go under anesthesia.

  • Consult with a plastic surgeon specializing in Body Sculpting
  • Complete physical examination
  • Get lab tests and chest x-ray
  • Stop smoking and drinking alcohol at least 2 week prior the procedure

Six-Pack Surgery may take about two hours, on average.

  • When showering, the patient can run soap and water over the healing wounds. However, the patient must refrain from scrubbing.

Risks and side effects of Six-Pack Surgery
Abdominal Six-Pack Surgery is considered a low-risk cosmetic procedure. Having said that, the surgery still comes with a risk of complications and side effects. 
Some common complications and side effects of Abdominal Etching include:

  • Nerve and blood vessel damage
  • Skin discoloration
  • Bumpy skin
  • Swelling
  • Accumulation of fluids
  • Bruising or headaches

The patient may also notice some discharge coming from the surgical site. If the discharge is greenish or yellow-tinged, patients are advised to contact their health care provider. 
A patient would also need medical attention if they come down with a fever that lasts a few days. This means they may have an infection.
