    The technique, called abdominal etching, is a kind of precision liposuction. The doc sucks out the fat that’s standing between the patient and, if everything goes well, the six-pack.

    The suction six-pack costs between $4,000 and $7,000 and is only suitable for certain patients, Aldo Benjamin Guerra, the Arizona plastic surgeon who authored the abstract, told us. “I probably turn down about twice as many patients as I work on,” he said. “You have to have a certain amount of fat. If you have too little or too much you’re not going to get the definition.”

    The magic number, he said, is one to two centimeters of pinchable belly fat. Patients also have to be in good physical shape, and if they’ve already dropped a lot of weight, they’ll probably have too much extra skin for the procedure to work.

    The technique has been around for more than a decade, but abdominal etching has never really taken off, Guerra said. The procedure takes an hour or two. But pain can persist for days afterward. Swelling can last for weeks or even months And there can be complications, such as infection and bleeding.

    Hi waleed,
    I think going for abdominal etching for 6 packs is not a wise decision.
    We must eat balanced diet meal and do cardio and resistance training to tone ab muscles. Abdominal exercises are also effective.

    Hello..The cost of six pack surgery (between $4,000 and $7,000) is not affordable by me. Arrangement of $4000 is not possible for me..
