About Abdominal Etching
Diet and exercise are not always enough to achieve the body shape and aesthetic that you want. When you have constantly worked to be fit and in shape, but just can’t seem to reach that “6-pack” look, the Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center in Houston, TX, can help. With abdominal etching, Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Anthony Nikko, can bring great improvement to the overall look of your abdominals. This procedure will remove stubborn fat pockets and tighten loose skin for a sculpted and chiseled profile. Less intrusive than other surgery options, abdominal etching uses liposuction to emphasize the "washboard ab" look. Dr. Nikko and his staff can help you reach your desired goals and gain a higher sense of confidence in your appearance.
"I've been coming to Dr. Nikko for over 3 years for Botox and I can say that Crystal does a fantastic job! A very natural look! I've been to other places and they don't get what I want! If you don't want to look frozen, but instead look natural, Dr. Nikko's office is the place! I recommend to all!"- Z.A. / Yelp / Aug 10, 2017

"I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Dr. Nikko! I went in for a BBL (Brazilian butt lift) and he over exceeded my expectations. His staff is amazing as well. Dr. Nikko takes his time with you pre surgery and post surgery. He keeps up with your progress after surgery by seeing you frequently enough but not over doing it as well. He puts your needs first and molding whatever procedure to your specific needs. I highly recommend Dr. Nikko! I am 3 months post op and my results have not changed at all. Thank you Dr. Nikko for boosting my self-esteem and making me feel extra beautiful ??"- J.C. / Google / Nov 02, 2018
After a consultation with Dr. Nikko to determine if you are a candidate for ab etching, the procedure will take place under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. With a tumescent liposuction technique, the fat tissue beneath the skin will be reshaped according to pre-marked patterns over the patient’s flexed abs, ensuring natural looking results. The procedure is done through small incisions, as fat is removed in some areas and repositioned in others. Typically, the surgery takes about 45 - 60 minutes.
While the surgery leaves patients with some bruising and swelling, these effects should dissipate in a few weeks with the help of a compression belt. After 1 week, patients can return to work but strenuous exercise should be avoided for about 3 weeks. After about 6 months, patients should be able to see optimum results. However, a healthy diet and exercise schedule are encouraged to maintain sculpted results.
