I did abdominal etching (6 pack definition) back in 2015. Right after the surgery, when everything was still swollen, I was very concerned. However, Dr. Steinbrech calmed me down. He turned out to be right, in a few months I got the abs I always dreamed of. Two years since, I still have an awesome, well defined stomach. The only downside, I have been working out much less because the result is visible, so why bother? )) As far as my experience with the doctor, I'll just say that Dr. Steinbrech is a great guy. He will talk to you, explain things, address your concerns, and all that without any BS. I really appreciated the attention, but much more - the result!
