Ab Implants/Abdominal Augmentation
Known as six-pack implants, abdominal implants are an alternative to another popular procedure to abdominal etching. Etching is a form of liposuction that gives you a flat, tight stomach with greater muscle definition. The surgeon removes excess fat, and then creates grooves in remaining fat layers to simulate the appearance of toned abs. Abdominal implants, however, are actual implants designed to mimic the look of the six-pack, and they can provide an even more defined appearance than abdominal etching. The 6-pack implant is a procedure that can give you the tailored, defined abs you have been dreaming of leaving behind the tireless stomach crunches and sit-ups where the results may only take you so far. A small incision is made to the belly button and six to eight individual implants are placed over the muscle.
The implants lie over your actual musculature, and are designed to conform to the underlying muscle, and be supple and flexible enough to move with your bodily activity, while also feeling natural to the touch. In many cases, the implant surgery is coupled with a tummy tuck procedure to provide better access to your abdominal muscles before the insertion of the implants.
The implants are soft, flexible and made to move with your body.
