About Abdominal Sculpting
A flat, toned stomach can generally be achieved through a healthy diet plan and exercise, but "washboard" abs are extremely difficult and sometimes impossible to get. If you'd like a defined stomach with a clear "six-pack," board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin offers abdominal sculpting at his practice in Brea and Beverly Hills, CA. An extremely refined liposuction technique, abdominal etching may help to remove small amounts of stubborn fat from your belly and define your ab muscles.

"Dr. Corbin performed my breast augmentation 20 years ago and the result was better than I expected. My breasts looked beautiful and did not look overdone nor fake. I had to tell my now husband that that I had implants, otherwise he would not have suspected. I had no visible scarring.Twenty years later - pregnancies, breast feeding and weight gain/loss, I decided I needed a lift. I just recently had my lift performed by Dr. Corbin. He is professional, honest and more than anything, trustworthy. These are the reasons I went back to him. He also goes the extra mile in after care to ensure his patients are healing healthily and beautifully. I absolutely love my result. My breasts once again look like they did in my 20s (even better) and I am approaching 50. His staff/front office professionals, Alice and Dee, are always so welcoming and caring. They seem to be truly invested in all of the patients that come in and out of their door. I always felt very comfortable with them.If I consider any other cosmetic procedures in the future, I will undoubtedly go back to Dr. Corbin. I highly recommend him."- Y.M. / Yelp / Mar 01, 2021

Can I Get Six Pack Abs?
At your consultation, Dr. Corbin will examine your body to decide whether you're a good candidate for abdominal sculpting. To be a good candidate for ab sculpting surgery, you should be in a normal weight range with isolated areas of fat in your abdomen. You should have a low body fat percentage (ideally below 20%) and have attempted to improve your core using a high-protein diet, regular cardio, and stomach strength training. Due to hormones, genetics, or pregnancy, you might naturally be unable to get defined abs.
How Is Abdominal Sculpting Done?
Dr. Corbin performs ab etching as an outpatient surgery in an accredited surgical facility with patients under general anesthesia. Throughout the 1 – 2-hour operation, Dr. Corbin will make one or more tiny incisions where he can insert a hollow tube (cannula) to suction out fatty tissue. Dr. Corbin normally uses liposculpture techniques to emulsify and remove fat but may also use Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) to achieve a more dramatic etching. Dr. Corbin will define the outline of the rectus muscle and the midline linea alba. To give you a six-pack, he can also etch the transverse inscriptions and horizontal lines. Once the fat has been removed and the stomach muscles are completely defined, Dr. Corbin will close the incisions with stitches.
What to Expect
Following the procedure, you'll be put in a compression garment to reduce bruising and swelling, which should diminish in roughly a couple of weeks. You may feel mild discomfort, but you should feel well enough to return to work within 5 – 7 days and resume working out in about three weeks. Dr. Corbin does his best to put the smallest incisions in your body's natural creases, which means the scars are hard to see when completely healed. Dr. Corbin or a member of his staff will go over scar care instructions to help your incisions heal cleanly.
Reveal Your Six Pack
However much time you work on your abs, you may not be able to get washboard abs on your own. Abdominal sculpting at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery removes the stubborn fat from your stomach and defines your muscles so that you can finally have a six-pack. If you have tried exercise and diet but are still unable to have visible muscles, then schedule a consultation with Dr. Corbin at his office in Brea or Beverly Hills, CA to find out more about abdominal sculpting.
