VASER Hi Definition Liposuction / Body Contouring with Fat Grafting AFTER WEIGHT CHANGE
6 Pack Etching.....
Liposuction removes fat cells. You typically don't make new fat cells. So, once they are gone from this or any area, they are gone forever. the results should be permanent as long as you maintain your current weight. Pregnancy may stretch your muscles or separate your muscles at the midline, but the definition should remain the same as long as your weight remains the same. DiscoverTheBeauty.com
Abdominal etching is near permanent
Even if you gain weight by over eating or getting pregnant, the fat has been removed and thus your etching will not be affected as there is less fat cells left on the abdomen.

Yes the results of etching are permanent. However, weight gain will distort your contours and shape and losing weight may not completely return you to your postop shape.

I appreciate your question.
Vaser assisted liposuction utilizes ultrasound to emulsify or melt felt prior to removal. It is also used to etch or define the muscles and normal anatomy to enhance the results. I use a specialized technique to remove the deeper fat areas and sculpt the superficial fat, so that one can achieve the goal of having not only a flatter stomach but also a more defined and curvaceous body if wanted. I can use this technique on the arms as well.
I also use the fat removed to graft into the pecs for men or breasts for women as well as into the arms and other areas to further enhance muscle definition.
The best candidates for the procedure already have a good muscular base.
The results are permanent in the etched areas
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic plastic surgery and high definition body contouring.
Best of luck!
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
If you gain weight the fat left behind in the abdominal wall after etching will become out of proportion or larger causing a deformity of the abdominal wall. If the weight is lost then the abdominal wall may or may not return to the original etched appearance.
You should consider a consult with a board certified plastic surgeon prior to this or any other cosmetic surgery that you may be thinking about.
