Do I need to put anything on my stomach after an etching for the ab etching to show?

Great question! This is a very common question.
The orientation of the post-op supplies over your abdomen is very important. The correct way to wear your post-op garment will change your result. I would suggest contacting your PS for additional post op education.
I wish you well through your recovery process,

Hello and thank you for your question. Your surgeon should have specific instructions about dressings you should use. Many people will use an abdominal binder and foam padding placed in a way to enhance the etching. I would suggest you speak to your surgeon.

Hi and thanks for the question.
Yes, use the silicone strips provided by your doctor and apply as instructed.
Best of luck.
