What is Abdominal Sculpting?

A flat, toned stomach can usually be achieved through a nutritious diet and exercise; however, washboard abs are extremely hard — in some cases, nearly impossible — for most people to achieve. If you want a defined stomach with a visible six-pack, then board-certified gynecologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Otto Huertas offers ab sculpting at his office in Dallas, TX. Using this highly refined liposculpture technique, Dr. Huertas can skillfully remove small amounts of stubborn fat to reshape your abdominal appearance. Schedule a consultation at CosmeticGyn Center to find out more about ab sculpting for men and women.

Can I have my abs sculpted?

During your consultation, Dr. Huertas will examine your body to determine whether you're a good candidate for abdominal sculpting. To be a candidate, you should be at a healthy, stable weight but have stubborn, isolated pockets of fat on your abdominal wall. Good candidates tend to have a low body fat percentage (preferably under 20%) and have attempted to flatten their stomach by eating a high-protein diet and exercising regularly with strength training. Due to genetics, hormones, or pregnancy, you may be unable to develop washboard abs on your own.

Our ab sculpting Techniques

Dr. Huertas performs abdominal etching as an outpatient surgery with patients under anesthesia. During the 1 – 2-hour surgery, Dr. Huertas will create one or more small incisions to insert a hollow tube (cannula) to remove fatty tissue. Dr. Huertas generally uses liposculpture methods to loosen and take out fat, but may also use power-assisted liposuction (PAL) to achieve a more chiseled look. Dr. Huertas will etch the midline, linea alba fibers, and the outline of the rectus muscle. To reveal a six-pack, he may also reestablish the horizontal lines and transverse inscriptions. After removing the fat, Dr. Huertas will close the incisions.

What to Expect

Following the surgery, you'll need to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and bruising, which will likely be present for about two weeks. You'll probably feel moderate to minimal discomfort but may be able to return to work within around 5 – 7 days and resume exercise within three weeks. Dr. Huertas does his best to place the tiniest incisions in your skin's natural creases, making the scars difficult to see once fully healed. Dr. Huertas or a member of his team will go over scar care for your incisions.
