What Happens if You Get Pregnant After Ab Etching?

By: Dr. Rolando Morales


Are you struggling to create six-pack abs through diet and exercise? Abdominal etching can give you a washboard stomach without spending extra time at the gym. This procedure, provided by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales, uses high-definition liposuction to carefully sculpt abdominal fat for improved muscle definition. It is one of our most popular treatments to date.

Female patients at Morales Plastic Surgery sometimes have questions about what to expect after ab etching. For example, what happens to your sculpted look if you get pregnant? The good news is that future pregnancy may not necessarily ruin your ab etching results. Learn about the process by reading below or scheduling an abdominal etching consultation in Houston, TX. We have helped countless women achieve and maintain their new looks.

Get six-pack abs with ab etching

Regular exercise and a nutritious diet can give you a flatter abdomen. However, six-pack abs are sometimes difficult to achieve on your own. It may take years to have a sculpted appearance through exercises, like crunches and planks. Abdominal etching uses next-level liposuction techniques to remove excess fat in between the abdominal muscles. The outcome is a washboard stomach that appears firmer and more muscular.

Who is qualified for abdominal etching?

Abdominal etching is not designed for everyone. Ideal candidates are fit and commit themselves to a healthy lifestyle in Houston, TX. During your consultation with Dr. Morales, we can discuss your cosmetic goals and make sure this surgery is appropriate for your lifestyle. Even though liposuction removes specific fat cells, the fat cells that remain can still grow. This is why it is important to continue a regular diet and exercise even after ab etching.

Can I get pregnant after abdominal etching?

We all know that women go through many changes when it comes to pregnancy and childbirth. Gaining weight is a natural part of that experience. As we mentioned, pregnancy should not have an impact on your ab etching results. It depends on whether you lose the excess weight you gained while pregnant. However, keep in mind that each woman’s experience with abdominal etching, liposuction, and pregnancy will be different. Dr. Morales can give you more detailed information based on your current body fat and goals.

We encourage women to wait for abdominal etching until they are done having children, so they do not have to be concerned about “losing” their ab etching results. But if you do get pregnant and need help getting back to your previous appearance, revision liposuction and other cosmetic procedures can always be performed. Morales Plastic Surgery often creates custom treatments for patients at different stages of life. We can personalize your surgical plan during a follow-up appointment.
