Abdominal etching is a variation of liposuction used to create the illusion of six-pack abs. During the procedure, thin tubes called cannulas are inserted into the body, dislodging fat deposits that get suctioned out. Abdominal etching differs from liposuction in that small amounts of fat are left behind in specific areas to imitate muscle fullness. 

This technique may also be referred to as liposculpture or high-def liposuction. It's often done using vaser liposuction, which uses ultrasound energy to melt the fat before it's removed.
