Body contouring surgeries for an Hourglass Figure. 

An hourglass body contouring surgery involves one or more procedures that are available to women who want to achieve curvier features and enhance their natural shape. This type of surgery enhances the bust, thighs, hips, and backside to enhance your physique and change your body type. For women who have tried diet and exercise without any success, this type of surgery is an ideal option and can lead to permanent results that are enjoyed for a lifetime.

Why hourglass figure is trending?

As society has embraced different shapes and sizes, more women want to appear sultry and attractive with an hourglass figure. As more celebrities have achieved this look, it’s prompted women to embrace the hourglass shape and feels confident in different types of attire with a body shape that is considered to be more feminine and sultry.

This type of surgery includes many different procedures to help you achieve your desired look and enhance multiple areas of the body that currently lack volume or shape. Although some women naturally have this body shape, it’s now possible for women with other body types to enhance their confidence with an attractive figure they can show off when diet and exercise have proven to be unsuccessful in the past.

How to Get an Hourglass Figure?

There are multiple body contouring surgeries that are used to create an hourglass figure. During the consultation, the plastic surgeon will perform a physical evaluation while discussing the patient’s concerns. They determine which surgeries will be most effective to create a procedure that is specific to the patient’s needs and is tailored to her body type.

Brazilian Buttock Lift

As one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world, the Brazilian butt lift is an integral part of an hourglass body contouring surgery for enhancing the shape and size of the backside. It involves extracting fat from a different part of the body and inserting it into each buttock to achieve natural results that are proportionate to the rest of the patient’s body.

This type of procedure requires having excess fat present on the body. Some plastic surgeons require women to gain an extra ten to 15 pounds of weight to ensure they have fat stored on the body that can be used to enhance the butt. This procedure also involves lifting the butt for a better appearance.

Liposuction or Liposculpture

Creating the perfect hourglass shape on the body typically requires removing fat that is present on different parts of the body, specifically the midsection where fat is stored.

Your plastic surgeon will suggest the best places to perform liposuction to improve the contour of your body. This involves removing stubborn fat cells, which delivers long-term and permanent results. Patients don’t have to worry about gaining weight and having their shape change in the future because of the removal of the fat cells.

Breast Augmentation and Lift

Enhancing the shape of your breasts can add more volume to the top of your body after the projection of your chest is increased, especially due to fat loss after breastfeeding or weight loss. This is commonly performed in most hourglass body contouring surgeries because it’s extremely effective in making the waist appear slimmer and smaller.

You can work closely with your plastic surgeon to determine the type of implants that you want to use, which include silicone or saline. You’ll also need to consider the size of the implants, depending on the size of your body and the look you want to achieve.

It’s important to avoid too large of an implant size, which can cause the body to appear top-heavy and can also lead to back pain if you have a petite frame. Taller women can have more success choosing a larger implant size, which is necessary to ensure the results are more apparent.


The plastic surgeon may recommend undergoing a tummy tuck during the surgery to remove excess skin and fat that is present below the belly button. The procedure reconstructs the abdominal wall to create a flatter and tighter mid-section for a slimmer shape. This will allow your backside and breasts to become more prominent and will add more definition to your shape.

Combining procedures

It’s common to combine multiple procedures when you’re planning to undergo an hourglass body contouring surgery because you may not be able to achieve the figure you want with just one procedure. Your plastic surgeon can determine if you need multiple surgeries that are combined to make it a more efficient process. This will allow you to address and enhance multiple areas of your body.

If you already have a standard hourglass figure, you may only need one or two surgeries to achieve the perfect hourglass body. Those who naturally have fewer curves may require additional surgeries to create a more dramatic effect.

Whether you undergo one or three surgeries, your plastic surgeon has the knowledge and experience to reduce the risk of complications to ensure it’s a safe procedure.
