Ab sculpting is a liposculpture technique, which falls under the liposuction umbrella. Simply put, it is a procedure that thins your layer of stomach fat. Ab sculpting happens right beneath the skin and involves sucking out the fat around your abdominal muscular structure and then sculpting abs along their natural contours. It’s an invasive procedure that takes about one to two hours on the operating table, with final results seen anywhere from three to six months. Many doctors will say that ab sculpting is more of an art than traditional liposuction.
If you’re considering ab sculpting, a basic understanding of the procedure and how it’s performed and what results you can expect is important. Be sure to ask Dr. Lacerna if there is anything you don’t understand about the procedure.
