Hip augmentation to achieve the hourglass shape
The hourglass body is one of the most revered figures among the modern women. It features smaller hip to waist ratio, and its important features include wider hips and bigger butts. If your hips are narrower and you desire to have the hourglass shape, there is a plastic surgery that can help you achieve this.
Hip augmentation is a popular procedure to get the hourglass body. There are two options in this intervention: hip implants and fat transfer to the hips. The hip implants are prosthetic devices made of highly durable and semi-solid silicone material. However, these are not available in the United States, so the only option available here to increase the size of your hips and create beautiful curves is fat transfer.
As compared to the hip implants procedure, the fat transfer surgery delivers more natural results with lower risks. The procedure involves the use of your own body fat to widen the hip area. Hip augmentation through fat transfer can be performed under local anesthesia and as an outpatient procedure. In order to qualify for this, you need to have excess fat in your body. This is the reason why you shouldn’t be surprised if your plastic surgeon tells you during the pre-operative consultation that you need to put on a few kilograms to be eligible for the surgery.
The procedure starts with the surgical removal of fat from the body. Liposuction is used to remove the excess, unwanted fat deposits from different areas, particularly the abdomen, sides, flanks, and upper back. The fat collected through liposuction is then processed and purified. Only the top quality and completely healthy fat cells are picked for transfer to your hips.
In the next step, the fat cells are injected into the target area with special needles. This means that there will be no major incisions on your hips. The plastic surgeon will use his skills and artistry to mold your hips into the hourglass shape by evenly distributing the donor fat.
The results of the fat transfer procedure are more natural and relatively safer since your own body fat is used to achieve the aesthetic goals. If your butt is smaller or flatter, the surgeon may also inject fat into your buttocks during the process, so your body can completely appear like an hourglass. The fat removed from your abdomen, sides, and flanks will make your waist slimmer as well, which is yet another important feature of the hourglass figure.
