Six Pack Surgery, Liposculpture


Six pack surgery, also known as "liposculpture" or abdominal etching, is a surgical procedure in which excess fat is removed from the body by liposuction in order to shape the abdominal muscles. The aim is to get the muscle group called "six pack" with implant support.

Six pack surgery first appeared in the 1970s. Later, with the advanced liposuction procedure and application, it became more effective and safer.

How is Six Pack Surgery Performed?

Six pack surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia. The surgeon first makes a few small incisions around the abdomen. These incisions are placed in areas where they can be easily hidden so that they are not visible later. 

Then the liposuction procedure is applied and the fat surrounding each abdominal muscle is started to be removed. At this stage, the experience of the surgeon is important and it is necessary to be worked meticulously. After each abdominal muscle is carefully shaped, the surgeon stitches the incisions closed. The patient can be discharged immediately after the operation.

After the swelling decreases a little, the results of the surgery begin to be seen. Each abdominal muscle can be clearly seen. It should be known that these results can be maintained for a long time through a regular life, healthy diet, and exercise.


Who Can Be a Candidate For Six Pack Surgery?

Candidates are people who are at their ideal weight with a certain body index score. Abdominal etching is not a way for losing weight. It should only be preferred for body shaping. Candidates should have realistic expectations at this point.

However, this procedure can be even more effective when combined with a skin tightening procedure. People considering this surgery are also advised not to smoke or at least to stop smoking during this process.


Recovery of Six Pack Surgery

It will be sufficient for people who have regular work to take a few days off. During the recovery period, heavy exercise should be avoided. Recovery time may vary from person to person, depending on how the person responds to the surgery and the extent of the liposuction procedure. Consultation between the surgeon and the patient before abdominal muscle surgery allows planning regarding the recovery process.

Since the abdominal etching operation is performed under anesthesia, the candidates do not feel any pain.
Like other cosmetic surgeries, some risks and side effects may occur within six pack surgery. It is normal to experience swelling, bruising, and some discomfort after the operation, but these symptoms will go away in the healing period.
Abdominal etching operation results are permanent. If the procedure is applied successfully and the person takes good care of himself, it does not need to be repeated.
Patients can expect to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several weeks after the surgery. They will need to wear compression garments to help support the healing process and avoid strenuous activity for several weeks. Pain and discomfort can be managed with medication.
Good candidates for six-pack surgery are individuals who are in good physical shape but are unable to achieve the desired abdominal definition through diet and exercise alone. They should have good overall health, realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery, and a stable weight.
Anyone whose medical history and current health status is compatible with the requirements of six-pack surgery is considered a suitable candidate. Many people can benefit from the advantages of this surgery. However, nothing definite should be said until the preoperative process such as tests and examinations are completed and the results are evaluated. Before considering cosmetic surgery, it is important to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon who can evaluate your individual needs and help determine the best course of action for you. He or she can also educate you about the risks, side effects and potential complications associated with each procedure and help you make an informed decision.
