Hourglass procedure for thin patients If your hips are narrow and you desire to have wider hips, you may consider the hourglass procedure. The hourglass hip procedure involves the use of your body fat to make your hips wider. It also reduces the size of your waist. Two important qualities of the hourglass body are a smaller waist and wider hips. Wider hips and a smaller waist make women appear more feminine, sexy, and fertile. As such, most women desire to have these qualities. Normally, the hourglass procedure involves the use of liposuction to remove the excess fat from areas like the abdomen, sides, flanks, and upper back. The fat is then processed and carefully injected into the hips, which makes them wider over time. However, not all patients may have excess fat in their body. If you are thin and lack enough donor fat in your body, you can still qualify for the hourglass procedure. Most thin patients do have the volume of fat required for widening the hips. If you are thin and already have a smaller waist, liposuction may not be performed on certain areas of your body. Only areas with excess fat accumulation will get liposuction. The fat is then processed and injected into the hips. To know if you are a good candidate for the hourglass procedure, you should consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing hourglass hip procedures.
