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 absolutely loved my experience here! I would recommend Dr. Nikko to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. I visited for a breast augmentation consultation about 2 months ago and as soon as I walked in the door Dr. Nikko and his staff treated me like family not like I was just a number they were extremely nice, helpful and answered any and every question I had. Stephanie(office manager) and Samah helped through the consultation process and made me feel very comfortable and assured me I'm in good hands and everything would be fine. Dr. Nikko is very knowledgeable and professional he is completely honest with you during the consultation and let's you know what exactly needs to be done and why. Vannica is the nurse here and she is awesome! So nice and informative she let me know all I needed to know for my pre op appointment and my follow ups like what to expect, what to do etc. After my surgery that same night Dr. Nikki called to check if all was well, and that says a lot because from what I've heard researching other surgeons they don't call or leave you their number to call after hours if something is wrong, they either won't call at all or have someone from the staff call, but like I said this place treats you like family and actually cares about how you're doing ...all in all I'm sooooo glad I choose Dr. Nikko for my cosmetic procedure my incisions are healing beautifully! some of the scars are healing so well they are barely visible and it's only been 4 weeks! They have great scar creams to prevent scaring..What I love is how you get 7 free visits after surgery to follow up and make sure you're doing ok and everything is fine during the whole healing process. So they definitely deserve 5 stars if I could go any higher I would."- R.G. / Yelp / May 01, 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.
