The hourglass butt augmentation is a popular plastic surgery procedure. It involves removal of the excess fat from your body areas like the abdomen, sides, and flanks and injecting of the fat into the buttocks. There are many people who ask what the difference between the hourglass butt augmentation and the Brazilian butt lift is. Well, the difference is that the hourglass procedure also involves injecting of fat into the hips, in addition to the butt. Since the most important feature of the hourglass body is wider hips, it is important to inject fat into the hips so they can be wider if the patient lacks wider hips. So, the simple answer to the question, “does the hourglass butt augmentation with fat include the hips?” is a straight yes. Let me elaborate the procedure to make it clear to you. During the consultation, the plastic surgeon will get to know your aesthetic goals, besides examining your body areas to identify the fat donor sites and the existing contour of your abdomen, butt, and hips. The hourglass figure features a smaller waist, wider hips, and a fuller butt. Whether this can be achieved will be determined during the consultation. The surgery starts with the removal of the excess fat and contouring of the abdomen, sides, and flanks. Liposuction will be used to extract the fat from the target areas carefully. Once the fat has been removed and the waist has become smaller, the removed fat will be processed and treated in a centrifuge. In the next step, the fat will be carefully injected into butt and hips. If the fat is not injected into the hips, you may not achieve the hourglass figure. If your hips are already sufficiently wider, there would be no need to graft fat into them. The plastic surgeon’s expertise, sense of aesthetics, understanding of the hourglass body, and artistry would come into play here. The fat grafting process is extremely meticulous and calls for attention to detail. Once the fat has been grafted into the butt and hips, the surgery would be complete. However, you would be required to go through a complete recovery process to achieve the desired outcomes. The results would not be immediately visible. It would take a few weeks and even months for the final results to evolve.
