About Ab Etching
For some men, attaining a chiseled six pack is hard and can even be impossible to accomplish no matter how many abdominal exercises they perform. This area is very susceptible to harboring stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise and can be caused by genetics. However, Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia can eliminate this excess fat and create the toned abs you've been hoping for by performing ab etching. An ab etching procedure at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery uses liposculpture (a more precise version of liposuction) to help sculpt the abdominals and present a more contoured, toned look. Please call our practice today to find out if this procedure is right for you.
Ab etching is a procedure that is designed for patients who are close to achieving their ideal body but need a little extra help with removing stubborn fat pockets through liposculpture. Ideally, each candidate will have:
- Less than 18% total body fat
- Strong abdominal muscles
- Maintained a balanced diet and exercise routine
- A healthy, stable weight

"The Right Choice - After considering an elective orchiectomy for several years, I started serious research on where to have it performed. I had my criteria as we all do, and the CCRS under Dr. Fara Movagahrnia seemed to meet them, so I gave them a call. The office manager, Judy, picked up and we had a friendly discussion of all my concerns. She understood my situation so I was not embarrassed asking about certain details. Judy provided a clear picture of the process, and after thinking it over, I called and scheduled the surgery. After complying with the pre-surgery requirements, I met with Dr. Fara the day before and we discussed my motivation and general health. Up to now all contact with the CCRS was very congenial and informative and I was ready for the procedure. Early the next day I arrived at the nearby out-patient surgery center, met Dr. Fara, got prepped and moved to surgery. I woke up a short time later, rested then dressed. Dr.Fara came to make sure all was OK...which it was, and offered to drive me back to my motel, which he did. All the while his friendly demeanor kept me very relaxed. The next day I was able to drive to his office for a final checkup and was given a warm greeting by the doctor and staff. I was told to call with any follow up questions of which I had a few that were quickly answered. Overall, my orchiectomy experience with Dr. Fara at the CCRS was efficient, friendly, and successful. I still contact the center from time to time and if passing through Atlanta will stop by to say hello. Why go anywhere else for your orchiectomy?"- T. / RealSelf / Aug 12, 2020

"Consultation - pleased with my experience so far - Hey everyone I just to start my thread with how pleased I am with my experience so far. My consult with Dr. Movagharnia was wonderful. I truly believe I was in the right hands. He was my 4th consult and I can say nobody I seen before could even come close to the experience I had with him. He gave me realistic goals and he was confident he could achieve the results I was looking for."- K. / RealSelf / Mar 03, 2020
An ab etching procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis in around one hour using general or local anesthesia. The first step will be for Dr. Movagharnia to trace the outlines of the muscles to use this as a guide during the fat removal process. Next, he will create very small, discreet incisions typically around the navel area and other natural creases in the skin to help conceal any scarring. A small cannula will be placed inside the incisions to suction out the stubborn fat around the muscles and contour the midsection. Once complete, you will be sent home in a compression garment to heal.
What to Expect
After surgery, you should limit your movement and lifting of heavy objects (over ten pounds) until you are safely cleared by Dr. Movagharnia to do so. If you follow your postoperative care instructions carefully, you should begin to see your final results six months after your surgery, which allows the body enough time to heal and the swelling to subside. As long as you continue to remain active and follow a healthy diet, your results should last for years to come. However, natural aging such as skin sagging and other factors can still alter your results. If this becomes an issue, a tummy tuck can be performed later in life to maintain the desired appearance.
