More folks are getting a surgery call abdominal etching to make their stomach muscles stick out. Would you go through all this just to have a six pack?

I just read this article a few minutes ago and emailed it to my friend with some comments. Heck no! I work out and dance every single day, so I already have 6 pack abs! I work my a-ss off for these babies!!!

Did you notice the picture of the guy? His abs look okay, but what about those spindly, stick-like arms? Maybe he could get some bi- and tri-cep implants to go along with those fake abs.

I am pro-plastic surgery, but wouldn't have that done.
I have a good Ab definition from my job, and being active, running around with my dogs, and I guess I am blessed with a very good gene pool.
I just think, if I can/ could achieve something, a result myself....I wouldn't resort to plastic surgery.
What I mean is, if I would want to lose weight, I work on it with a diet and exercise, rather then having lipo done.
I have the will power, and the stubbornness to go trough with it too.....lol.
Unfortunately, will I have to turn to plastic surgery procedures to take care of my wrinkles in my face....can't do much about it, and what ever needs to be done, I am doing already (good face moisturizer, treatments etc.)
So, Botox and Juvederm....here I come...lol.

I would never have such surgery done. I'd imagine it to look ridiculous on the people who have it done because look at it this way:

Those who look good with a six pack probably already have it---they worked hard to get toned, fit, and healthy.

Those who are getting it done probably wish they had it...but there is most likely a reason they don't: either because they're too unfit or because they have weight to lose (the two are not one and the same).

This procedure reminds me of the teensy tiny girls with 100 lb frames that get DD cup implants. Looks ridiculous, costs ridiculous, and should never be done.
