Thanks for submitting your question.The full Ab Etch is for patients whose six-pack can be felt but not seen. These patients have developed and strengthened their abdominal muscles, but they are unable to get the chiseled appearance due to their genetic disposition for fat storage. If a patient is a good candidate for the full Abdominal Etch procedure, you can clearly discern the individual muscle ridges. These patients also have an overall muscular appearance to their arms, legs and abdomen, so a defined abdomen would be in harmony with the rest of the body.
All the best,Dr. Mentz
