Abdominal Etching Surgical Details

During an abdominal etching procedure, you will be placed under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. Dr. Mehta utilizes his expertise in high-definition liposuction techniques to meticulously sculpt your abdominal area. He starts by making small incisions strategically placed in the natural creases of your abdomen, which helps minimize scarring.

Dr. Mehta will insert a thin, specialized cannula to remove excess fat around your abdominal muscles. He contours and sculpts the targeted areas, emphasizing the appearance of your abdominal musculature, such as the rectus abdominis and obliques. The technique involves selectively removing fat to create the illusion of a well-defined six-pack or toned midsection.

Dr. Mehta’s meticulous approach to abdominal contouring in Manhattan ensures a symmetrical and balanced outcome. Once the desired sculpting is achieved, the incisions will be closed using sutures, and dressings or a compression garment may be applied to aid in the healing process. Dr. Mehta will provide post-operative instructions to help you recover and maintain optimal results.


My recent procedure with Dr Mehta was awesome. The consultation with Dr. Mehta was on point. He explained exactly what the procedure would be, straightforward and honest. On the day of the procedure the nurse was very pleasant, professional and cordial. Dr. Mehta allowed me to be calm and feeling safe with him at the helm of the procedure. The result was impeccable, my previous scar was wide with hyperpigmentation. Dr Mehta was able to create a line that is next to invisible. I’m very proud to recommend anyone doing a procedure in the future to visit Dr Mehta.

The Recovery Process

After abdominal etching, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area, which is normal and should gradually subside over time. Dr. Mehta will provide detailed post-operative instructions to help manage your recovery and optimize your results. Every individual’s recovery experience may vary, but with proper care and adherence to Dr. Mehta’s instructions, you can expect optimal results and minimal downtime.

During the initial days following the procedure, you may be advised to wear a compression garment to support the treated area and minimize swelling. It is crucial to follow all instructions regarding garment usage, medications, and wound care. You should avoid strenuous activities and exercise for a specified period to allow your body to heal properly. Dr. Mehta will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and provide any necessary guidance post abdominal contouring in Manhattan.

Abdominal Etching FAQs

How is abdominal contouring different from traditional diet and exercise?

Abdominal contouring, also known as abdominal etching, is a surgical procedure that suctions away excess fat deposits from targeted regions around the abdominal muscles to make them look more chiseled and well-defined.
