Ab Etching

Thanks for your question and pictures. It is hard to determine without examining you, but there are several indications that help determine if someone is a good candidate for Abdominal Etching. A good candidate will have adequate muscle mass and relatively tight skin. Begin with a board certified plastic surgeon that performs more than 100 procedures per year. Internet discussions do not replace the advice of your physician.

You need an exam and consuto determine the degree of fat under the skin and inside (visceral) to judge if you are a candidate. I wouldn't recommend abdominal implants.
