Six Pack Surgery

Six Pack Surgery in Bangkok, Thailand 

          The effect of testosterone hormones on the male body creates a male structure, such as broad shoulders and expanded hairs on the chest and arms, Adam’s apple, a toned voice, and muscle mass. The male body tends to have a proportionally smaller buttock, bigger chest, broader latissimus dorsi, and a small waist for a V-shaped torso. The male body's prominent muscles include the latissimus dorsi, Trapezius, and Pectoral muscles, as well as the biceps and triceps in the arm.

Body Designed for Male

  • Arm: adjust muscle at the arms and shoulder area
  • Chest zone: enhance the chest (Pectoral surgery)
  • 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 building abdominal muscles. However, not everybody can achieve that definition of an athletic six-pack, even with exercise. Some people find it challenging to increase the thickness of the abdominal muscles, even with strenuous abdominal activities.

          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.

So, the upper abdominal part is more curved.
