The effect of testosterone hormone in male body creates a male structure such as broad shoulders and expanded, the hairs on chest and arms, adam’s apple, low tone voice and muscle mass. Male body, tends to have proportionally smaller buttock, bigger chest, and wider latissimus dorsi, and a small waist for a V shape torso. Prominent muscle of male body includes the latissimus dorsi, Trapezius, and Pectoral muscle as well as the biceps and triceps in the arm.
Body Designed for male:
1. Arm: adjust muscle at arms and shoulder area
2. Chest zone: enhance the chest (Pectoral surgery)
3. Abdominal area: reform six pack (Abdominal six pack)
Six pack surgery:
Abdominal six pack surgery is a surgical operation that involves sucking the fat around the abdominal area. Many men and women devote a large portion of their exercises to build abdominal muscles. However, even with exercise, not everybody can achieve that athletic six pack definition. Some people find it difficult to increase the thickness of the abdominal muscles even with strenuous abdominal exercises.
Six-pack surgery or abdominal etching, works for people who do not exercise. This procedure can be combined with liposuction of other areas such as the flanks and lower back
Good candidate for six pack surgery:
Abdominal etching removes precise lines of fat to reveal the patient’s natural muscle tone, the best candidate already has well-toned underlying abdominals that can be emphasized by etching. Good candidates also include patients who have undergone tummy tuck surgery or liposuction and want abdominal etching to achieve a fitter and more chiseled appearance. Those considering abdominal etching surgeries should maintain a proper diet and healthy amounts of exercise, since the longevity of the surgical results depends on it.
Figure 1: Male muscles anatomy
In each part of the body, the skin will contain fat in different level and volume. For Abdominal six pack surgery, the operation area starting from under breast down through abdomen and thighs which have 2 levels of fat: middle layer (superficial layer) and deep layer, to compare above and below navel, the lower area contains more fat in deep layer.
VASER – Assisted High-Definition Liposculpture (VAHDL) at abdominal area will create Six Pack by removing fat from superficial layer and the deep layer to reform prominent six-pack muscles above navel. (Figure 1)
Figure 2: Positioning of the excess fat sucking to perform six-pack in a male body
There are two types of male excess fat:
1. Extra-abdominal fat (subcutaneous fat) is the fatty lying directly under the skin layers (figure 3). The surgeon can etch the abdominal six pack which a good proportion

2. Intra-abdominal fat is located inside the peritoneal cavity. It is opposed to subcutaneous fat, which found underneath the skin and packed in between internal organs and torso. The excess of visceral fat is known as central obesity. The surgeon can etch abdominal six pack reform the shape only the extra abdominal fat, intra abdominal fat cannot suction. So the upper abdominal part is more curve.

Female six pack surgery is the same procedure as male. This procedure helps women have the more attractive, good appearance and healthy.
The procedure is done under general anesthesia, 3-4 hours. Most patients return work in 2-5 days after surgery. An abdominal compression garment is worn for 2-3 weeks, follow up each week. The six pack definition of the abdomen will become more and more obvious until final results are achieved 2-3 months later.
