All body types are beautiful. But for anyone who desires a curvaceous hourglass figure, several cosmetic procedures can help achieve this goal, most notably a Brazilian butt lift, liposuction and breast augmentation.
When performed on their own, these procedures can create the curvy silhouette patients seek. Alternatively, patients can combine procedures for more dramatic results.
Achieving the perfect hourglass figure is all about getting the proportions right.
Below, Dr. Carlos Chacon of Divino Plastic Surgery talks more about the types of cosmetic procedures patients can get to achieve the body shape they’ve always wanted.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Some people are genetically predisposed to having a round, voluptuous posterior. Others that are not are able to enhance their buttocks through targeted exercise. But for some people, extra help is needed, which is how the Brazilian butt lift comes into play.
A Brazilian butt lift involves transferring fat tissue from one area of the body (usually from the hips, lower back, abdomen or thighs) and then injecting a portion of that fat into the buttocks to enhance its shape and size.
Sometimes, implants are used instead of a fat transfer. However, implants have a higher risk of complications. Plus, a fat transfer typically looks more natural.
To qualify as a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift, you must be in good health overall and have a sufficient amount of fat in other areas of your body to do the transfer.
Liposuction and a Brazilian butt lift typically go hand in hand, as liposuction is the process by which fat is removed from the body to then be transferred to the buttocks.
Liposuction can also be performed on other areas of the body to create a more noticeable hourglass effect, specifically on the abdomen, flanks and/or lower back.
Breaking up and removing stubborn fat cells from these areas of the body creates a smaller, more defined waist, which is the hallmark of an hourglass silhouette.
Lastly, patients can augment the size and shape of their breasts, which, again, creates a more noticeable hourglass shape.
Breast augmentation involves getting implants — with either silicone gel or saline filling — to give patients fuller, rounder breasts. Breast augmentation also creates the appearance of having a smaller waist.
