Body Etching

Or Body sculpting operation is a relatively new cosmetic operation developed specifically to shape the body to look more harmonious and slim for those who would like to get rid of unfavorable fats in their bodies.

It is an operation that coordinates the bodyweight by removing the excess fats which hide the beauty of body muscles and getting a tight body.

For body sculpting operations, we use the Vaser technique, which relies on high-frequency sound waves to break down the deep fat under the skin, especially in the abdominal region.

Stages of Body Etching

Body Etching operation usually takes between two to seven hours. Since the Body Etching operation is a customized operation, the duration of the operation may change from a patient to another. 

The stages of body Etching operation are:

  • After determining the area of your body that you will have the procedure to, your doctor goes over your operation plan for one last time. The doctor will make marks on your skin to show you where the incisions will take place.
  • After that, your surgeon will administer general anesthesia to you.
  • Then, in the stage of sterilization, the medical team sterilizes the entire body to avoid any possible infection.
  • The doctor makes small incisions in the areas that are identified, then starts to remove excess fat by inserting the cannula with the size of barely a few millimeters. By this cannula, the doctor can inject a saline solution which turns the fat into a liquid to be absorbed easily.
  • During the process of fat removal, the skin is tightened by the Vaser technique. Finally, the doctor closes the incisions.
  • The doctor will then place bandages over the treated areas, and you will wear a corset for 4-6 weeks.
