Looks like you can go ahead and cancel that gym membership because there’s a new plastic surgery technique called abdominal etching that can reshape belly fat to give you abs like Peter Andre in his prime.

Researchers at the University of Miami’s Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine developed the procedure as a shortcut for getting a defined set of six-pack abs without having to hit the gym.
As detailed in a study published in the Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons:
Abdominal etching uses a more targeted approach to power-assisted liposuction, a technique where a vibrating tube connected to an aspirator removes subcutaneous fat deposits through suction. A plastic surgeon uses these same tools to sculpt multiple layers of a patient’s abdominal fat to accentuate the natural abdominal muscle lines—typically six for men, and three vertical lines for women. Based on the patient’s preferences, the sculpting can be tailored for softer, shallower abs, or a more-defined and chiseled look, as well as improving the definition of hip lines.
How annoying is that eh? You spend all that time in the gym working on the perfect summer body and then they invent this simple procedure so that everyone else can basically go to bed and wake up with the same chiselled abs you worked so hard for.
Granted it’s probably super expensive and looking at the images provided in the reports I’m not sure how well these surgically sculpted abs are going to age, but I guess they look like the real deal for now.
