While there is no doubt that bodies can be beautiful in an assortment of shapes and sizes, one classic shape that never seems to go out of style is an hourglass-shaped figure. Even for women who are not genetically blessed with a large bust, wide hip, and slender waist in the middle, an hourglass figure may still be attainable. Read on to find out how the talented breast and body surgeons at Muse Plastic Surgery in Atlanta can enhance your body to achieve your desired proportions.


Starting from the top of the torso, the best way to get extra roundness is with breast augmentation. Breast implants come in a variety of shapes, but round implants (which are available in both silicone and saline) are generally best for achieving the classic hourglass curves. Your surgeon can recommend a specific size that exaggerates your proportions without looking obviously unnatural.

For some patients, breast augmentation is all that’s necessary to complete an hourglass look because the midsection looks more svelte by comparison.


There are two main procedures that can improve the thinness of your stomach. The first is liposuction, which carefully suctions out pockets of unwanted fat. Although liposuction is not effective as a weight loss tool, it can eliminate the stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to your diet and exercise efforts. This surgery is highly effective at re-contouring your waist.

The second surgery is abdominoplasty. Better known as tummy tuck, this surgery gets rid of loose, excess skin that accumulates around your midsection. For a lot of women, it’s not fat but extra skin that stretched (especially during pregnancy) that adds girth to the waist. By trimming this surplus skin, tummy tuck can recontour the abdomen.

Liposuction and tummy tuck are often performed at the same time. This combination may be the best option for creating a cinched waist effect.


The best way for a plastic surgeon to add curviness to the hips is with fat transfer. Brazilian butt lift uses fat cells from elsewhere in your body — perhaps the same fat suctioned out of the abdomen with liposuction — and reimplants it in your buttocks to provide volume. Enhanced cheeks not only help to fill out your jeans but also add some roundness that makes your waist seem thinner in comparison. Since your body recognizes its own fat cells and adopts them in their new location, this surgery is safe and produces long-lasting results.

Improve Your Body Proportions

If you’ve always wanted an hourglass figure but don’t have one naturally, you probably already know how difficult it is to achieve that body shape. Simultaneously adding volume to your breasts and butt while losing fat from your waist is not something you can control — at least without plastic surgery.
