Abdominal etching, and more broadly liposculpture, are advanced methods of liposuction, allowing to emphasize certain muscular reliefs of the body. They allow to improve with even more details and finesse the silhouette.
In fact, they perform a real sculpture of the abdominal muscles, pectorals or other muscles, in order to make them stand out and obtain a more bulging and defined appearance.
This procedure is mostly applied to the abdomen, to draw the famous “six pack”.
The goal of abdominal etching is to bring out the natural relief of the abdominal muscles and more particularly the rectus abdominis muscles.
The rectus abdominis muscles extend from the thorax to the pubis and are cut by 6 tendon intersections (3 per muscle), thus creating the demarcation of 8 abdominal squares.
Even if the anatomy is constant, the drawing of the muscular reliefs will be different between a man and a woman but also between each patient. We follow the pre-existing muscle contours for a natural and aesthetic result even if there is a variation in weight.

It is a cosmetic surgery procedure such as liposuction, therefore not covered by social security or mutual insurance companies.
The price is very variable from one patient to another. Indeed, it depends on the number of corrections to be treated, the place of intervention, the duration… The price for a liposculpture can vary, from 3500 euros.
This requires a clinical examination by an aesthetic surgeon specializing in body contouring and liposuction, who will be able to evaluate with you and guide you in the choice of the right treatment.
