Gladiator Abs

Gladiator Abs™ Developed by Dr. Douglas Steinbrech to get the abs you always wanted! 



A procedure commonly referred to as abdominal etching before specially trained members perfected the technique with their Gladiator Abs™ to surgically improve appearance and enhance the definition of abdominal muscles. This innovative procedure removes nonessential fat along with sculpting your abs definition to help you get ripped abs you always wanted.

Many men believe as per a fictional gladiator once proclaimed,

“What we do in this life echoes in eternity!”

That has certainly never ringed truer when it comes to diet, exercise, and the lasting effects on one’s midsection. Reality exposes the harsh truth that even the most well-disciplined individuals with toned abs can still be concealed under a layer of fat. Gladiators exemplify a physique that still exudes masculinity while promoting the ultimate capable, defined healthy body prototype.

The Procedure

The overall time to execute the practice takes approximately an hour. Gladiator abs performed as an outpatient procedure administering either local or general anesthesia. Before surgery, a specially trained member will trace the outline of the patient’s abdominal muscles. The lines drawn will act as a guide for a specially trained member to follow during surgery as several small incisions will be made around the belly button following the natural crease of the abdomen. A small metal tube called a cannula will be inserted underneath the skin for that raised ab effect. A liposuction approach can remove excess fat along with the lines drawn by the surgeon, sculpting the abs into the desired contours. The incisions typically measure less than a quarter of an inch but may or may not require sutures to conclude the procedure.

Are You a Candidate?

Overall good health

Already well-toned abdominal muscles

Disappointed in the appearance of their midsection due to unwanted, stubborn layer of fat covering muscles

Gladiator Abs are not appropriate for an individual with a significant amount of weight to lose from the abdominal region. The ideal candidate for this procedure should already be physically fit with an athletic muscle build. The Gladiator Ab technique will only be optimally effective when the individual sustains only relatively small pockets of fat concentrated in the midsection. Individuals with a body fat percentage of greater than 18% are not appropriate candidates for this procedure.

Those considering to undergo this procedure should understand that after this surgery, following a healthy diet and exercise regimen is still essential to maintaining the results.

Complications & Risks

Risks of Gladiator Ab surgery include:

  • Bleeding
  • Excessive Scarring
  • Potential of Infection.

It is imperative to consult with a highly acclaimed surgeon to ensure satisfactory and evenly aesthetic results. When not performed by a credible, certified surgeon it is conceivable to experience temporary to permanent nerve damage around the belly button.

Gladiator Abs Recovery Time

Recovery time can vary for each.  You can expect to experience some pain and discomfort, which should be manageable using over-the-counter pain medications. Most patients return to work in about a week. Gladiator Abs will become fully apparent within six months after your body has had sufficient time to heal.

Common Side Effects

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Redness

A specially trained member may instruct you to wear a compression garment over your abdomen for several weeks. This will reduce swelling and help the tissues to adjust to their new contours faster. For the first week or two after surgery, strenuous activities and heavy lifting should be avoided.
