A strong, toned, athletic, V-shaped abdomen has long been the standard of beauty among men. Adding a well-defined six-pack enhances this appeal. But sometimes, no matter how many crunches you do, no matter how many laps you run, you end up with nothing. Your abdominal muscles refuse to rise and define themselves.

There is now a procedure to tackle that. Hi-Definition Liposuction or Six-Pack Abs Creation is a surgical procedure that removes the stubborn fat and highlights your underlying six-pack. It gives you the washboard abs you sorely desire through a combination of liposuction and fat grafting.

What is Fat Grafting?
Fat grafting is a cosmetic procedure often performed alongside liposuction. Liposuction removes the excess fat from a region. However, when this is performed through Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) and Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL), the fat can be harvested instead of removed. There is minimal damage which means the fat can be treated and reused in various parts of the body.
This is often done to enhance other parts and make the overall figure seem proportional. It is used in six-pack abs creation to highlight the muscles and add higher definition to the final result.
How Six Pack Abs Creation Is Performed?
Beginning with liposuction, Dr Abizer Kapadia uses state-of-the-art liposuction methods, i.e. PAL and UAL(VASER). Together, they ensure the smooth and easy removal of the excess fat from the abdomen.
Before removing the fat, he marks out exactly where the abs should appear. The reason six-pack abs are possible is because that is the natural shape of the muscles underneath the subcutaneous fat. Therefore, you already have a natural shape. Dr Kapadia simply brings it to the surface.
Keeping the incision low on the abdomen, PAL is used first to remove excess fat. PAL involves the rapid to-and-fro movement of the cannula to break up the tissue and suction it out. Combining this with UAL, where ultrasound energy is used, makes removal even easier. UAL(VASER) melts and emulsifies the fat with minimal trauma. This way, it is easily removed.
The reason the mounds and dips of the abs are marked out beforehand is so that UAL can target the dips. By removing more fat from the dips, the hills or mounds become more evident, and the abs get more defined. The ultrasound energy that UAL releases also heats the skin from underneath, making it shrink over the new structure. However, if there is a lot of excess skin, abdominoplasty can remove it for better results.
Fat grafting is used for added definition. If you are unsatisfied with the targeted approach of removing fat from the dips, fat can be grafted onto the mounds. This enhances them and increases the washboard form.
How Is Recovery After Six Pack Abs Creation?
After surgery, there will be some swelling and bruising on the abdomen. You may experience pain and discomfort post-surgery but is easily countered with painkillers. Most patients return to work within one week and can exercise within three weeks.
What Are The Results?
Over time, the incision lines fade and become almost nonexistent. Your results keep getting better over the next few months, and you will soon see your six-pack abs!
Please note that there is no substitute to a healthy diet and regular exercises and gym sessions. Liposuction and fat grafting are used only to enhance and give the body a better shape. The maintenance is in your hands by maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle.
