Hourglasslipo is an extensive exercise performed to refine the female body shape, while hourglass tummy tuck provides sexy silhouette that cannot be achieved with just regular vaserlipo. This technique is different from traditional tummy tuck, which merely provided a flat abdomen with a square shape. The main objective of hourglass tummy tuck is to recreate anterior profile with an hourglass shape while producing a flat abdomen.
Like traditional tummy tuck, the hourglass procedure involves the same techniques as tightening of muscles, removing excess skin and fat below the bellybutton, and closure. The traditional process does not include liposuction, but the hourglass adds liposuction of back and flanks to refine the waist and transfer fat to the hip area.
