Throughout time, women have desired an hourglass figure.  Unfortunately, not all women naturally have that hourglass body shape.  However, thanks to modern technology and great plastic surgeons, an hourglass shape can be obtained.  Various plastic surgery techniques can build curves in all the right places. 

The following are some plastic surgery techniques that may help you accomplish an hourglass body. It is essential to understand that each patient is different and may require more than one of these methods to achieve the perfect body shape. 

Breast Augmentation

Some patients have small breasts.  Breast augmentation can improve breast shape, increase the projection of the breasts, and make the waistline look slimmer.   

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian Butt Lift is among the hottest trends in plastic surgery.  It gives patients a full, round backside. If you do not have a characteristic “S-curve” you want,  your surgeon can create it using fat transfer to redistribute fat to add curves.  


If your body has excess fat deposits at the waist (also called love handles or hip rolls), your plastic surgeon can remove them with liposuction.  This procedure slims the waist, giving patients the essential component of an hourglass figure. Liposuction is also a great way to eliminate excess fat in the stomach, hips, thighs, and flanks to contour the body further.

Tummy Tuck

Patients may desire a flatter midsection and a more appealing silhouette.  An abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin from the tummy, tightens the underlying muscles if needed,  and improves the contour of the body. Often, liposuction is done in conjunction with an abdominoplasty to enhance the results.

If you’re looking to obtain an hourglass figure, schedule a personal consultation with one of our award-winning, board-certified plastic surgeons at Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery, Dr. Peter Butler, Dr. Jocelyn Leveque, and Dr. Nathan Patterson.
