What to expect on the day of Abdominal Etching surgery

On the day of your Abdominal Etching surgery at Plastic Surgery Scottsdale with Dr. Alexander Golger, you can anticipate a world-class procedure to sculpt and define your abdominal muscles.

The surgical process involves the strategic removal of excess fat to enhance the appearance of well-defined abdominal muscles. Dr. Golger utilizes advanced techniques to create natural-looking contours, providing you with the sculpted abdominal appearance you desire.

During the initial phase of Abdominal Etching, while standing, Dr. Golger will carefully mark the areas targeted for sculpting and enhancement. A foam dressing, matching the markings on your body, is applied. You’ll be administered either general or local anesthesia, depending on your preference and your doctor’s recommendation.

Dr. Golger will then make incisions, referred to as ports, in your belly, accessing and removing fat deposits using a scalpel and a cannula pump. These ports remain open throughout the surgery to drain fat, fluid, and blood. Following the closure of the incisions and the the application of dressings, a compression garment is worn on the midsection to aid the healing process.

Throughout the surgery, Dr. Golger and his experienced team prioritize your safety and comfort. The procedure is performed with meticulous attention to detail, ensuring optimal results while minimizing any potential risks.

Abdominal Etching recovery

The recovery phase is important for achieving the best results. You can expect some initial swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the treated area, which are natural parts of the healing process. Dr. Golger will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to guide you through the recovery period.

Over the coming weeks and months, you’ll notice a gradual improvement in the appearance of your abdominal muscles as swelling subsides, unveiling the sculpted and defined abdomen you’ve been working towards.
