Can I Get a Six-Pack Through Liposuction?

It’s no secret that the desire for a fitter, more athletic body type is shared by a majority of men and women, but there are so many limitations when it comes to dieting and exercise. The tendency for stubborn fat and loose skin to linger around the midsection over time is why liposuction has soared in popularity to become the second most frequently performed procedure in the U.S. On top of simply removing exercise-resistant fat around the body, Texas Liposuction Specialty Clinic offers a number of advanced techniques to showcase leaner, more muscular contours in the abdomen and recreate the highly sought-after “six-pack.”

Sculpting Your Six-Pack: Advanced Techniques

 High-definition liposuction, or “HD liposuction,” has been a reliable approach to emphasize a six-pack, using fat reduction and skin tightening to re-sculpt the abdomen. This is a popular and effective approach to male liposuction in particular, ensuring men can receive a masculine, natural-looking outcome. With HD liposuction, our physicians can highlight the major muscle groups in the abdomen to provide a more athletic, toned look. These muscles can often be further defined through innovative fat transfer techniques known as the RAFT and UGRAFT procedures: 

  • RAFT: Short for Rectus Abdominis Fat Transfer, “RAFT” describes a new method of accentuating a six-pack through fat transfer. Excess fat collected through liposuction is transferred directly into the rectus sheath, creating the desired abdominal contours to give patients a fitter, more cut appearance. RAFT is commonly performed at the same time as a combined liposuction and tummy tuck procedure (lipoabdominoplasty). 
  • UGRAFT: Ultrasound-Guided Rectus Abdominis Fat Transfer is another technique that can use excess fat to increase muscle volume in the abdomen. Fat is taken during liposuction and transferred to the abs to increase muscle definition, emphasizing a more athletic and toned appearance in patients with little muscular bulk in the rectus abdominis. In addition, UGRAFT can provide a more muscular, sculpted abdomen even during movement, regardless of a patient’s position. 

It’s not uncommon to combine RAFT, UGRAFT, HD liposuction, and tummy tuck techniques to achieve superior abdominal etching for patients looking to define their muscles. Our liposuction specialists would be happy to speak with you about the best treatment options to achieve your goals.
