Ab Etching & 4D Liposculpture

Male Abdominal Contouring in Atlanta

When it comes to our bodies, one of the most common goals many men strive for is six-pack abs. However, losing that stubborn layer fat from your midsection can become increasingly difficult due to a variety of factors such as age and genetics among others. Even when you eat right and work out regularly, the layer of fat covering your abdominal muscles may still get in the way of having a well-defined muscular appearance. The fact is, we all have the six-pack muscles, but some have more difficulty getting them to show. Core exercises like crunches and sit-ups can help build the muscles, but if the fat is still there, it may just push out your belly further.

What if you could finally have the six-pack abs you've been working so hard for? Now you can. Dr. Alan Larsen can perform a specialized procedure known as Ab etching with 4D liposculpture to provide you with the chiseled midsection you desire.

Ab etching is not for everyone and does not work well for patients who are obese. Dr. Larsen recommends ab etching for men who are at a stable weight and within a few pounds of their ideal weight.

Preparing for Ab Etching

The process of ab etching consists of Dr. Larsen carefully removing sections of fat that are covering the fascia between your abdominal muscles. This is done by using 4D liposculpture, an extremely precise method of liposuction that Dr. Larsen can use to enhance the appearance of your midsection and leave behind a well-defined shape. Dr. Larsen has years of experience performing this procedure and knows where fat should be removed to achieve a natural-looking shape. The goal of ab etching is not to reduce your overall body fat, but to enhance the appearance of your core and provide you with the appearance of chiseled six-pack abs.

After Ab Etching

Your ab etching procedure will require roughly 3-4 days of recovery. It may take some time before you are able to see your final results due to some post-surgical bruising or swelling. Dr. Larsen will make sure that any incisions are well hidden within the natural contours of your body, and any scarring will continue to fade over time.

As your body continues to heal, you will notice the appearance of a clear separation between your abdominal muscles where Dr. Larsen removed fat. With his many years of experience, Dr. Larsen is able to provide men with extremely natural-looking results with this ab etching procedure. Men who undergo ab etching with Dr. Larsen are thrilled with their results and often benefit from a boost in self-confidence. You will feel more comfortable whether you are shirtless at the beach, swimming at the pool, intimate with your partner, or simply when wearing a well-fitted shirt. With a continued healthy lifestyle, you can enjoy long-lasting results from your ab etching procedure with Dr. Larsen.
