Think you’ve tried everything to get those six pack abs? Think again. The technique, called abdominal etching, is a kind of precision liposuction. During the procedure, a cosmetic surgeon slurps out the fat in front of your abs and creates that abdominal separation you have always been dreaming of. All results and no work, the American Dream!
Don’t cancel your gym membership just yet, the surgery, which costs up to $7,000 is only suitable for certain candidates. Up to half of the patients who apply are turned down. You have to be in somewhat good physical condition with less than a 2 cm of pinchable bodyfat covering the abdominals. The procedure takes an hour or two, but pain and swelling can persist for weeks or even months and there can be complications, such as infection and bleeding.

immense character these athletes have. Just like the sport they are
often misunderstood and I'm hoping to give them a platform to express
