The hourglass tummy tuck is the next generation of body contour procedures. It is a procedure that I have developed after examining thousands of women’s before and after pictures. The hourglass tummy tuck is completely different from a traditional tummy tuck and one of the many hourglass procedures I perform.So how can you get an hourglass shape with the hourglass tummy tuck and what are the components necessary to achieve these results? For starters, I always do liposuction on the upper and lower back. The lower back is more important to provide a better hourglass definition than the upper back. For example, I like to do liposuction on the waist from the backside as well as the flank. These two anatomical structures extend from the anterior part of the body all the way to the posterior, accentuating your hourglass shape in different profiles. Afterwards, I tighten the muscles and cut the excess skin like a traditional tummy tuck. I add liposuction to the abdomen to decrease the thickness of the fat layer to make the waist smaller before transferring fat to the hips. Even if you perform liposuction on the waist, you will not achieve an hourglass figure if you do not perform fat transfer to the hips. I essentially use the fat taken from the liposuction and inject this into the hip area to sculpt the hips. These are the procedures necessary in order to achieve a perfect hourglass figure.
