Six-Pack Abs Etching Q & A

What is a Six 6 Pack Abs Etching Procedure?

  • A Six 6 Pack Abs Etching Liposuction surgery is a combination of liposuction of the abdominal area with the addition of sculpting and detailed etching.  This procedure is often partnered with chest reduction/gynecomastia for full chest and abdominal sculpting. During your procedure, a layer of fat is removed along the upper and lower abdomen, contouring the abs and sculpting and highlighting around each muscle.  Recovery time for this procedure is only a few days.  Small incisions are made in discrete areas in order to remove fat and sculpt and contour your abdominal muscles naturally.  The combination of the local anesthetic used during this awake surgery and wearing a compression garment for 6-8 weeks post surgery aid in the healing process and skin tightening by yielding most favorable results.  
  • Six 6 Pack Abs Etching Liposuction surgery is a component of The Autograph Collection exclusive only at Tampa Bay Body Sculpting in Tampa Bay, Florida. This exclusive collection is defined by the most innovative techniques available in the Cosmetic Surgery World.

What is BMI and is it important for this procedure?

  • BMI is a measurement of body size by combining height and weight. BMI does not measure fat directly and is used solely as a guide. 
  • During your Free Consultation at Tampa Bay Body Sculpting we will ask for your current height and weight along with photos of the area(s) you are interested in for surgery taken in a 2 piece (including front, sides and back). The photos will aid in determining your customized surgical plan to fit your body goals.
  • The State of Florida places limitations on the amount of fat that can be removed in each surgery for the safety of patients. Depending on the areas of interest for surgery and your fat placement, patients will be given a surgical plan including one or multiple surgeries for optimal results taking safety into concern as the highest priority. These surgeries can be 1-3 weeks apart depending how you heal.

What is the downtime and healing process after Six 6 Pack Abs Etching Procedure?

  • Immediately following Six 6 Pack Abs Etching Liposuction surgery, patients are required to have a trusted person with them to drive them home from Tampa Bay Body Sculpting  because of the use of medication during the procedure.  
  • Dr. Miles advises patients to wear a compression garment for 6-8 weeks post surgery. This garment distributes pressure across the treatment areas to ensure proper healing. This also helps to minimize swelling, decrease discomfort, and help the skin tighten and retract. 
  • During the healing process patients will experience slight bruising, discomfort, and swelling which will all subside with time. The exact timeframe for recovery depends on how quickly you heal and what you do for work or regular activities. On average patients recover 2-5 days following their procedure. Dr. Miles recommends light walking post surgery to increase circulation and keep blood flowing.
  • At Tampa Bay Body Sculpting, we want to ensure a healthy recovery and long-lasting results. Since all patients are different, everyone has a different timeline for their healing period. 
  • Dr. Miles recommends post surgical lymphatic massages with ultrasound cavitation treatments to help your body heal and to improve final results. These post care treatments help the lymphatics system and speed up the healing process. Dr. Miles recommends starting these treatments at your 1 week follow up appointment.
