Abdominal Etching or Six Pack Liposuction
All these names are essentially modifications of Liposuction Techniques that are designed to take out the fat underneath the skin in such a way as to enhance the appearance of the underlying muscles Bulk and also the Cuts. These techniques are generally more aggressive than conventional liposuction and can therefore be associated with a more prolonged recover and slightly higher risk of complications. These techniques of liposuction can use assisted techniques like PAL (Power Assisted Liposuction) and UAL (Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction or VASER).
The purpose of these procedures is to enhance your muscle Bulk and your Cuts and make you appear more Shredded, especially if you can feel all the cuts due to your exercise routine, but can’t see the definition of the muscles because of the overlying resistant fat.
High Definition Liposuction (Hi Def Lipo) is a specialized technique of liposuction, often done with the PAL ((Power Assisted Liposuction) and VASER (Ultrasound energy assisted liposuction) techniques.
Conventional Liposuction, which will also use PAL and VASER is much less aggressive compared to the Hi Def Liposculpture, the latter seeks to deliberately take out fat from directly underneath the skin in areas were a muscular person will have a natural cut or dimpling.
Conventional liposuction deliberately avoids the delicate fat close to the skin undersurface as doing so carries the risk of damaging the blood supply to the skin and causing complications related to the same.
Not every person wanting a Hi Def Lipo, is suitable for the procedure. The selection criteria for a person suitable for a 6 Pack Lipo or High Definition Liposculpture is as follows:
The Hi Def or 3 D or 6 Pack or 4 D Liposculpture procedure always starts with a detailed consultation at Reforme Medical Clinic at which time our doctor will determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. If you are found to be a suitable candidate then you will be given all the information about what to expect in terms of preoperative care, the risks, side-effects and complications and the aftercare required. You will be required to have an adequate Cooling Off Period to consider the Pros and Cons of the Surgery. Once you have understood all aspects of the Surgery including the Benefits, Risks and Complications and are willing to go ahead, you will be subjected to investigations that will include blood tests, ECG and others. Given that the investigations are within normal limits and you are fit and willing the operation date will be scheduled.
The surgery is generally a day case procedure, but your doctor might choose to admit you in the facility for an overnight stay to enhance the safety and recovery.
You will then be examined by our doctor prior to your discharge and then sent home with all the appropriate aftercare instructions and contacts of the doctors and nurses involved in your care. You will generally be followed up at 2 weeks, 1, 3, 6 & 12 months and further if required.
You will have to wait a period of 3 – 6 months before the result of the surgery stabilises.
If you maintain your body weight withing normal or recommended limits for your height, and if you continue exercising the muscles that have been defined, you will have a result that will last you a long time.
We are ready to treat you.
