The hourglass liposuction is by far the best option for women who have stubborn fat pockets in their abdomen, sides, love handles and upper back. To top things off, this procedure helps women achieve the most coveted hourglass body. Keep in mind though that this is considered a major surgery. While the hourglass liposuction is an outpatient procedure, it is still performed under general anesthesia. The first step of the hourglass liposuction procedure involves placing a tiny incision in the target area. Next is the introduction of a tumescent solution into the area, which will drastically minimize bleeding during the operation, help dislodge the fat cells from the surrounding tissues, and make the procedure comfortable for the patient. Afterwards, a small hollow tube, called the liposuction cannula, will be inserted into the target area through the tiny incision. The surgeon will make a back and forth motion with the tube to extricate the fat cells from the surrounding tissues. The fat is then suctioned out using a low-pressure suction pump or a special syringe connected to the liposuction cannula. Once all this is done, the incision is sutured and closed. This process will be repeated on each target area until the hourglass shape is achieved. You may be wondering about the difference between the traditional liposuction and the hourglass liposuction. To put it quite simply, in the traditional liposuction procedure, the fat is simply removed to contour the body. While in the hourglass liposuction, the fat extracted will be transferred to areas that need enhancement, like the hips and buttocks, to attain an hourglass figure. Thus, the hourglass liposuction will make your waist smaller and aesthetically appealing, and then the fat transfer procedure will help you achieve fuller hips and buttocks. By combining these techniques, you get the body of your dreams.
