An hourglass figure is often considered to be the ideal body shape for women, highlighting the natural curves of the female body. However, losing stubborn fat in your abdominal area to create this shape is often a challenge, as the weight in this area can be resistant to your diet and exercise efforts.
If this is the case for you, you might be considering liposuction to get an hourglass figure. But is this the most effective option for you?
How Liposuction Can Create an Hourglass Shape
Generally speaking, liposuction can help you achieve an hourglass shape by eliminating stubborn pockets of fat from your abdominal area. As your body heals and recovers from liposuction, your new hourglass shape should develop over the next weeks and months.
Keep in mind that the best candidates for liposuction will already be close to their target weight prior to treatment.
When Might Other Procedures Be Necessary?
In some cases, liposuction might be best paired with other cosmetic surgeries to help you achieve that coveted hourglass shape. If loose skin or separated muscle tissue in your abdominal area are keeping you from achieving the body shape you want, a tummy tuck with liposuction may be the most suitable solution for you, for example.
Some women also may choose to incorporate breast augmentation with liposuction to help create an hourglass shape.
