Is Abdominal Etching higher risk than traditional liposuction?
Doctor Answers 1
Abdominal etching is more delicate, but just as safe as lipo
When done correctly, it is just as safe as liposuction. Remember that lipo is like a paintbrush. It is only an instrument to get a result. Much more important than the instrument, is the person holding it. Make sure that you only work with a plastic surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic surgery and that he/she has a great deal of experience in this specific technique. You deserve nothing less.
Patients that receive ab etching are comfortable after 2-3 days and can go back to work in 3 days wearing a special compression garment.
