Liposuction / abdominal etching results. Are my expectations unrealistic? (Photo)

Expectations after abdominal etching
Abdominal etching is not effective for everyone, particularly if your total body fat composition is too high. Generalized liposuction would help reduce some fat from your anterior abdominal wall and flanks, but it cannot change your body fat composition. You would be better off getting the look you want through lifestyle modification. This means you would build muscle mass in your abdominal muscles as well as lose fat simultaneously. So but no surgery can give you that.
You are well built and athletic, there is no reason you should have opted for 'etching'. Your goal should have been generalized reduction of the abdominal fat pad. Etching seems like a good idea and looks good in static photos, but is a far cry from true muscular visibility.
You don't supply us with before photos, so no assessment of your results can really be made, other than minor irregularities. I recommend you get a few second opinions from surgeons certified by the ABPS and members of the ASAPS who specialize in liposuction.
Best of luck!
I suggest you see a hi definition contouring expert for treatment
