Abdominal etching is a liposuction procedure designed by Dr. Mentz in 1991 to contour the abdomen and waist for male patients to maximize the athletic appearance. Depending upon how thick the layer of tissue over these muscles is, the procedure is usually accomplished by sculpting the overlying tissue to the shape of a healthy “six pack.” If the layer is too thin, it may also be necessary to do some micro fat grafting over each section of the six pack.” This enables us to emphasize the muscular appearance even more when performing abdominal etching.
