How to Get an Hourglass Figure

Posted October 05, 2016 in Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Liposuction, Mommy Makeover, Tummy Tuck, Uncategorized

Feminine beauty ideals have evolved dramatically over the centuries. One of the predominant images of feminine attractiveness today is the glamorous hourglass figure of famous beauties like Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, and Elizabeth Taylor. However, very few women have this body shape; it’s far more common to have a rectangular or pear-shaped figure. If an hourglass figure is what you seek, the Mommy Makeover procedure can help any woman, mother or not, achieve this figure.

The Hourglass Figure

Only a small percentage of women have a natural hourglass body shape, while most have a pear, apple, or rectangular body shape. The true hourglass figure has a narrow waist with the breasts and hips measuring about the same size. Scarlett Johansson is an example of a modern-day hourglass figure. This elusive body shape is so desirable that a quick online search yields a plethora of exercise routines that claim to help women be able to achieve it. However, if the hourglass is not your natural body shape, exercise cannot give you an hourglass figure.

The Mommy Makeover

before-and-after-mommy-makeoverThe Mommy Makeover combines several procedures to reshape a woman’s body. Commonly performed on mothers whose bodies have been drastically changed by pregnancy and nursing, the Mommy Makeover usually includes liposuction to eliminate stubborn fat, breast surgeries to lift and augment the breasts, and a tummy tuck to create a narrow, firm waistline. Implants of an appropriate size and shape can enhance the bust so that it is near the same size as the hips. Strategic liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, and even fat transfer procedures can target other areas to reshape the body so that the abdomen is narrower than the hips and bust. The Mommy Makeover can be completely customized to help you achieve your desired body shape, and through this procedure, the coveted hourglass figure is within your reach.
