What procedure do I need to get an hourglass silhouette?
Sofia Vergara, Beyoncé, and Jennifer Lopez are just a few of the celebrities we admire not only for their career but also their looks. What have we learnt from them? Mostly that thin is not necessarily sexy. Curves are hot, and this has been a beauty standard for decades now.
A slim waist, wide hips, and voluptuous breasts have always been considered not only sexy but also symbols of femininity and even motherhood. There are studies showing that men find themselves attracted to women looking like this without even realizing it. And the hourglass silhouette is indeed beautiful, but very few women (less than 10%) are actually born with it. Moreover, sexy curves can be very hard to achieve with sports and diet. And this leads us to an efficient solution to get the curves you desire and the most wanted silhouette—plastic surgery.
Patients come to our practice all the time asking what procedure is needed to get an hourglass silhouette. This can be easily decided after the pre-operative consultation. The first step in getting the body shape of your dreams is finding a plastic surgeon who is well-versed in performing hourglass procedures and scheduling a meeting with him. During the initial meeting, the plastic surgeon will perform a physical examination on you and also take measurements of your body. The hourglass silhouette is not about one feature of the body or the other; it is about the harmony of proportions and beautiful curves. This means that the plastic surgeon needs to be very careful when considering what procedures can help you.
The hourglass silhouette can’t often be achieved by undergoing just one plastic surgery procedure. For most patients, we are talking about combinations of procedures that can be performed in the same sitting. Generally speaking, hourglass procedures entail the use of liposuction and fat transfer to create beautiful curves. Fat redistribution is essential and the key to a successful procedure for many patients. However, there are patients struggling with other aesthetic imperfections such as a small or saggy butt, skin excess, sagginess on the tummy, and even distended abdominal muscles.
The procedures that we perform to help patients achieve the hourglass body shape are the hourglass hip procedure, the hourglass tummy tuck, the hourglass Mommy Makeover, hourglass butt implants, hourglass butt augmentation, and hourglass liposuction.
Depending on your anatomical characteristics and the imperfections affecting your body, the plastic surgeon will recommend the most suitable procedure for your particular case. The cost of the procedures start at about $10,000 for hourglass liposuction and can get up to $24,000 for an hourglass Mommy Makeover.
Hourglass liposuction is recommended for patients who have unwanted fat deposits on the flanks and the abdominal wall and narrow hips. The hourglass hip procedure is dedicated to patients with narrow hips. The hourglass tummy tuck will correct imperfections of the abdominal wall while the hourglass Mommy Makeover aims to help mothers regain the beautiful appearance of their bodies after multiple pregnancies.
