The Benefit Of Six-Pack Surgery Abroad 

The abs muscles are one of the most complex muscles to develop, especially if you're looking for chiseled, defined abs. The muscles are dormant under layers of stubborn fats. You must commit to a healthy lifestyle and train rigorously to develop the abs muscle.

Six-pack surgery abroad is a safe, guaranteed, and cost-effective way to get the six-pack you desire. Cosmetic surgeries abroad cost 50% - 70% less and are usually performed by world-class cosmetic surgeons. There are other benefits when you decide to have the procedure abroad.

Confidential and private 

Some patients want to keep their medical choices private, so seeking treatment abroad provides them with more confidentiality. Medical tourism offers privacy; you can publicly announce you're going on holiday while seeking treatment.

You get access to superior patient care services

Most doctors usually see their patients once a month. So, an average doctor spends fewer than seven minutes with a patient. Ultimately, this means that patients don't experience good patient care services from their doctors.

On the other hand, if you travel abroad to receive treatment, you can expect to be treated with care and respect when you go for treatment abroad. The surgeons in these reputable hospitals take the time to talk to patients.

You get the chance to recover in 5-star facilities

Some patients prefer an agency to plan their treatment abroad. It gives you relief to focus on your recovery. The agency will prepare a customized trip that fits your needs. The package will include flight, accommodation, and airport transfer.  

Easy visa process 

Medial tourism hubs like Turkey, Poland, and Hungary facilitate the visa process for international patients. In these destinations, the visa is obtained immediately via an online procedure that will only take you minutes to complete.

Assistance before, during, and after treatment

Medical tourism agencies will assist you before, during, and after treatment. It includes free doctor consultations and all necessary arrangements for medical travel such as airplane bookings, hotel arrangements, transport, plus guides on having a successful surgery.

After treatment, you will periodically receive tips and guides to help you with the recovery period.

Tips For Choosing The Best Abs Surgery Clinic Abroad 

  • Have a clear expectation of the results: understand the necessary procedure plan. 
  • Choose a surgeon registered with an international governing body like the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. Or any other reputable international board. 
  • Verify the surgeon's experience. Ask about the surgeon's education, additional fellowship training, and how often they performed the treatment.
  • Schedule an online consultation. Most clinics or hospitals that work with international patients offer this service. 
  • Research the condition of the clinic before booking. It's recommended to visit the clinic before booking and finalizing the procedure. Talk to the staff and past patients if possible. 
  • Ask what's the follow-up steps after the surgery and aftercare procedure steps. 
  • Choose the right surgeon, do your due diligence, and enquire. 
  • Plan your trip well, and give yourself time to rest after the treatment. 

Ideal Candidate For Abdominal Etching Abroad  

An ideal candidate for abdominal etching surgery is physically and mentally healthy, at a stable weight, and has healthy muscle tone and skin elasticity to ensure the quality of the results.

Six Pack Procedure Complications 

Six Pack Surgery is a simple surgical procedure but has certain risks and side effects associated with it. Some of the common side effects of the Six Pack procedure are:

  • Infection
  • Allergic reaction to anesthesia
  • Nerve damage
  • Bleeding or damage to the blood vessels
  • Skin discoloration or severe bruising
  • Irregular contouring
  • Bumpy skin
  • Swelling
  • Fluid accumulation

Six Pack Surgery Recovery Timeline

The recovery time for the six-pack surgery is, much like the recovery time for other liposuction procedures, around two weeks. You should expect the full results of your procedure around 2-5 months after the surgery. 

You can resume your daily life activities within the first week of the procedure, although, you should not partake in strenuous physical activity. You should also make sure to avoid smoking and drinking during this period to reduce the risk of infections. 

Abs Surgery Success Rate

Six-pack surgery has a high success rate of 98%, especially in Turkey as it is performed by well-trained, highly-skilled, and board-certified plastic and cosmetic surgeons. 

Six Pack Surgery Alternative Treatments

The alternatives to a six-pack surgery are less invasive forms of liposuction such as:

  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction
  • Power-assisted liposuction
  • Tickle liposuction
  • Laser-assisted liposuction

A non-invasive alternative to the six-pack surgery is a combination of a healthy diet, exercise, and weight lifting to improve your health and enhance the appearance of the body simultaneously. 

How Is The Procedure Performed?

The Six Pack surgery procedure is performed as an outpatient procedure meaning that you can get home the same day, depending on the case. The procedure follows the same steps as traditional liposuction but the techniques used are typically more complex in a six-pack surgery. 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
