How Does Abdominal Sculpting Work?
Prior to this 1 to 3 hour surgery, Dr. Moenster will have a consultation with each patient to understand where their problem areas are and what outcome they would like to see. She will then customize a treatment plan that addresses each patient’s individual needs. Patients will be informed as to how the procedure works, how to prepare for the surgery, and what to expect in the days and weeks following the procedure. Then, on the day of surgery, before anesthesia is started, Dr. Moenster will mark the abdomen with lines to guide her as she sculpts away fat deposits to reveal your more clearly defined abs. The excess fat between each muscle is then surgically removed and suctioned from the body, leaving subtle fat pads over the abdominals to make them stand out more. With this procedure, there is minimal scarring so it won’t be obvious that your 6-packs had assistance from abdominal contouring surgery.
