Liposuction is one of the common and popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States. The hourglass liposuction is one of my signature procedures that I had developed to help patients achieve the most popular hourglass body. So, what is the difference between standard liposuction and hourglass liposuction? Let’s take a look. At the onset, standard liposuction and hourglass liposuction have different aesthetic goals to achieve. The standard procedure aims to simply remove the stubborn fat pockets from different areas of the body. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. During the surgery, tumescent anesthesia is injected into the target area and a hollow tube called a cannula is inserted into the site. The cannula is connected to a suction pump or special syringe. Next, manual movement of the cannula or laser-assisted liposuction or ultrasound-assisted liposuction is used to dislodge or liquefy the fat from the surrounding tissue. The fat is then removed with the help of the suction pump or syringe. The same process is repeated on each target area. On the other hand, the goal of hourglass liposuction is to help you achieve the hourglass figure – smaller waist, wider hips, and curvaceous body. The fat removal process remains the same as standard liposuction. While removing the fat, the plastic surgeon uses his sense of aesthetics and artistry to beautifully sculpt the target areas, specifically the abdomen, sides, flanks, and thighs. After the fat has been removed and the areas have been contoured, your waist would appear smaller. In the next step, the fat removed from the body is purified in a centrifuge. The impurities, dead cells, fluids, and injured fat cells are separated from the healthy fat cells. Next, only the healthy and fully alive fat cells are grafted into the hips and butt with a special syringe. The fat grafting is done very carefully so the desired shape is achieved. As a result of transferring the fat to the hips and butt, the hips become wider and the butt appears fuller. These aesthetic improvements, combined with the smaller waist resulting from the fat removal, introduce the features of the popular hourglass shape to your body. You will appear more feminine, fertile, beautiful, and sexier as a result of the wider hips, fuller butt, smaller waist, and curvaceous figure.
