What’s Six Pack Surgery?

A six-pack surgery, also known as the abdominal etching procedure, is a liposuction procedure meant to give the patient a chiseled abdomen with six packs. The abdominal etching surgery is, however, much more complex than the regular liposuction procedure. 

Men’s six-pack surgery doesn’t simply suction out the fat, but the procedure is performed in an advanced manner to highlight the abs and sculpt them. 

The six-pack surgery’s Turkey procedure is a safe, effective, and successful outpatient procedure. The six-pack surgery woman’s procedure works like men’s although the extent of the results may differ from patient to patient. 

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. 

Six Pack Procedure Recovery Time

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 shouldn't partake in strenuous physical activity. You should also avoid smoking and drinking during this period to reduce the risk of infections. 

How is the Abdominal Etching Procedure Performed?

The six-pack surgery begins much like a traditional liposuction procedure, with the surgeon inserting the liposuction probes and cannulas in the targeted areas. The surgeon will then start strategically suctioning the fat, enhancing the obliques and rectus abdominis.

This will help give the appearance of the six-packs you desire. Once the desired results are achieved, the surgeon will remove the probe and suture the incisions. This marks the end of your six-pack surgery procedure. 

What Should I Expect After Six Pack Operation?

A six-pack surgery is an easy procedure that is followed by at least two weeks of the recovery period. You can expect slight bruising and swelling in the area, during the first couple of days after the abdominal etching surgery. 

You can resume work by the end of the first week, or at the latest, the second week. You should abstain from alcohol and smoking during the entire recovery period, and even after that for the best results.

You may be sore for the first week and find it difficult to sit down or stand straight due to tightness. This, along with other discomforts can be managed with over-the-counter painkillers.

  • Tummy tuck 
  • Body lift

How To Prepare For Six Pack Surgery?

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirin and any other medication that causes blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.
  • Avoid smoking before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So it would be best if you did not take alcohol before surgery.
  • Follow your doctor-prescribed medication that adjusts your current medicines.
