Gladiator Abs in West Palm Beach
Dr. Douglas Steinbrech invented the Gladiator Abs™ procedure by perfecting the most advanced abdominal etching technique used on Hollywood A-listers. Gladiator Abs works to give the illusion of natural-looking abs by highlighting a man’s natural muscle tone and removing excess fat. With many men in West Palm Beach, gym-going has proven itself to be great, but still doesn’t offer the full results they aspire to. This option allows men to get a six pack they want, even if genetics won’t allow for it.

This procedure takes an hour from start to finish and can be performed as an outpatient procedure with local anesthesia or a more involved surgery using general anesthesia. The details of your Gladiator Abs procedure will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Steinbrech. Prior to being anesthetized, Dr. Steinbrech will trace an outline of your abdominal muscles on your stomach. These act as a visual guide during your surgery. You will then get anesthetic and a number of small incisions will then be made around your navel area. Once the incisions are made, a cannula (small liposuction tube) gets inserted underneath the skin. Using the cannula, the excess fatty tissue is liposuctioned out near the drawn lines. This, in turn, sculpts your abs. Once your abs are done, the procedure is complete.
