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
"Thank you to Dr.Nikko and all his beautiful staff for making my first experience with their aesthetician Michelle very easy and comfortable! I was very nervous going in for this procedure but realized at the end it was a piece of cake, I had CELLUTONE done to my lower thighs and also a little bit of BOTOX with his PA Crystal that is by the way also such a doll! I give them a 5 Star for being so awesome!"- T.E. / Google / Jun 28, 2018

"Dr. Nikko and his staff are the AWESOME! I've recently had skin tightening and a facial done by Michelle Nolen who is the BEST esthetician that I've had the pleasure of meeting. Michelle is kind, honest, gentle, patient, personable, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. For all those reasons and more, I would recommend Michelle for all of your skin care needs. I promise you won't be disappointed."- L.M. / Google / Jun 07, 2018
"My experience with Dr. Nikko and his staff has been exemplary. Dr. Nikko really takes the time to listen and is very attentive. I also had several procedures with Michelle and she is amazing. She is careful to explain the procedure and expectations and was very accommodating with my hectic schedule. I can't say enough about Michelle and the staff. In addition to the top knotch service, results have also been great!"- L.R. / Google / Jun 07, 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.
