Modified abdominal etching includes thinning the abdominal fat pad, etching in the linea albe (the vertical crease above the belly button), etching the linea semilunaris (the soft lateral or outside edge of the rectus muscle).

Full abdominal etching also adds the horizontal transverse inscriptions that make the six pack. Here are some tips for abdominal etching :
Keep your incision scars low so that it is hidden in the smallest bathing suit
Have your surgeon use Xeralto or Lovenox to reduce your risk of blood clots
Use incrimental compression garments during and after surgery to reduce risk of leg blood clots
The surgeon places the marks when you are standing and abdominal muscles are flexed
I prefer power assisted liposuction but there are a few talented surgeons using Vaser
Your surgeon gently shape your abdominal flap to create a more athletic appearance and muscular contour
Etching is aggressive fat removal to enhance six pack grooves
Foam padding is used in the etched areas to improve the early results
Begin post operative massage one to two weeks after surgery to speed recovery
Begin with a board certified plastic surgeon and visit several offices
Choose a surgeon with good experience, doing more than 100 per year
Internet discussions do not replace the advice of your physician
