How to Get 6 Pack Abs
Have you worked on your 6-pack abs for years? Have you still not achieved the physique you deserve? If you want ripped abs and a leaner physique, then let Dr. Mendieta help you fight the good fight.* Reduce that layer of fat that is concealing your abdominal muscles.
If you have up to 20% body fat and you also have muscle tissue you have a chance to completely redefine your body and walk out with ripped 6-pack abs.* The male cosmetic procedure lasts about an hour and is performed under general anesthesia as a completely outpatient procedure.
Dr. Mendieta suggests his surgical patients add Exparel injections to their procedures. This is an additional cost, but reduces the pain during and after surgery up to 80%. However, Exparel must be administered during the surical procedure.
The incisions are nearly imperceptible and will fade away substantially over time.* Abdominal etching utilizes liposuction and more specifically the tumescent liposuction technique.
