How Sixpack surgery is performed? 

In line with today's aesthetic values, muscle aesthetic surgeries are not just about removing excess fat; It is considered as a healthy, dynamic, fit, athletic, and muscular body design. By evaluating the muscle and fat tissue in the body, a customized muscle aesthetic surgery plan is made.

This type of surgery, which will be performed by those who want a sportier body and want to reach the abdominal muscle in a shorter time, is performed quite easily.


Such operations that will provide the ability to shape oil and emulsion the oil are called painless liposuction; also this procedure is performed in a way that does not damage nerves or fats in any way.


Marking and Anesthesia

  • The first step to being performed in such aesthetic operations, which will be applied to people who will be under general or local anesthesia, will be to determine the locations of the muscles and to act accordingly.
  • During the surgery, small incisions are made within the natural contours of the abdomen, this helps minimize scarring.
  • With micro inputs, the vibration is given to certain areas where there is lubrication and the muscles do not show. The cannula emits ultrasound waves to dislodge the fat cells which allow for easier removal of fat cells. The self-evident fat layer is eliminated, allowing the muscles to be visible.
