It started with the tummy tuck surgery, but over time this procedure evolved. As you know, tummy tuck is an effective treatment for a saggy abdomen. Due to technological advancements and discoveries, the tummy tuck surgery went through several waves of improvements and innovations. Consequently, the hourglass tummy tuck is the next-generation procedure that will help you achieve multiple goals in one session. Traditionally, the goal of the traditional tummy tuck procedure is to remove the saggy or hanging skin from your abdomen and tighten the abdominal wall muscles to restore the firmness and shape of your abdomen. The procedure is typically used to treat abdominal sagginess induced by pregnancies, aging, gravity and weight fluctuations. With that said, the hourglass tummy tuck has two goals: 1. To help you achieve the hourglass body; 2. To restore the contour of your abdomen. During a tummy tuck, the first step is to remove the excess skin and fat from the abdomen. Afterwards, the surgeon will tighten the tummy wall muscles and then elevate the belly button to a better position. On the other hand, during the hourglass tummy tuck procedure, the doctor will need to use his sense of aesthetics and artistry to add beautiful curves to your abdomen. This is one of the features of the hourglass shape that makes it unique, which is not the case in the traditional tummy tuck because it does not involve the careful use of specialized techniques that sculpt the body to achieve the curves. In addition to that, the hourglass tummy tuck procedure actually involves the use of liposuction and fat transfer. The surgeon will perform liposuction on your abdomen, sides, and flanks to remove the stubborn fat pockets. This helps achieve a smaller and curvy waistline because it surgically removes the fat pockets from the abdomen, whereas a traditional tummy tuck does not involve the use of liposuction. In cases wherein the hips, the most important feature of an hourglass body, is not wide enough, fat transfer will be performed as part of the hourglass tummy tuck procedure. Liposuction will be done in the abdomen and the fat extracted will be purified and transferred to your hips and butts. By doing so, you achieve wider hips and a set of fuller and shapelier butts, yet another feature that cannot be achieved with a traditional tummy tuck. Taking all these into consideration, it is clear that the hourglass tummy tuck provides better results than the traditional tummy tuck. This can be attributed to the fact that the hourglass tummy tuck involves the use of sophisticated surgical techniques. This is also why the doctor is required to be highly experienced in the procedure. They need to have a full understanding of the hourglass shape, a great sense of aesthetics of the female body, and the artistry to sculpt the body. Thus, there are very few who can successfully perform this procedure.
