It uses a special cannula to contour and shape abdominal fat pad to provide patients with a flat stomach. The procedure selectively removes a small amount of fat around the patients natural muscular contours and shapes the abdomen to create a more athletic contour.

Prior to the procedure, the surgeon makes detailed markings of the patients flexed ab muscles and uses the markings to remove fat and highlight the patients individual muscular structure. The procedure is suitable for patients who are already in shape and who have between 1 to 2 centimeters of "pinchable belly fat"; recovery can lengthy and complicated.
