Womens bodies come in many beautiful shapes and sizes, but one of the most aspirational shapes is the hourglass figure. Women who have an hourglass shape have larger breasts, a thinner waist at the middle, and wide hips. If genetics did not bless you with this shape, you may still be able to create these contours with help from an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. A.J. Khalil. Read on to learn how he can help you achieve the proportions of your dreams.


The most efficient way to add volume to your upper torso is with breast augmentation. Round implants, which are available in both silicone and saline, tend to be the best option for creating a full, curvy shape that makes your waist look skinnier in comparison. Dr. Khalil can recommend an implant size that achieves your preferred proportions without appearing artificial.


Dr. Khalil offers two main procedures for improving the sleekness of your midsection: liposuction and abdominoplasty. Depending on your cosmetic goals, you may benefit from one or a combination of both surgeries. Since belly fat tends to be more stubborn than fat in other areas of the body, you may find that losing weight from your midsection is particularly difficult. Liposuction can target stubborn pockets of fat by permanently suctioning out excess fat cells from your abdomen. Dr. Khalil can simultaneously mold the remaining fat for appealing contours.If you are like many women, the girth around your waist is caused by loose skin rather than fat. Skin stretches during pregnancy and may not retract to fit snuggly around your frame. With tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), Dr. Khalil removes this loose skin for a tighter, firmer abdomen.


To add width below your waist and exaggerate your proportions, Dr. Khalil often recommends Brazilian butt lift (BBL). This is a fat transfer procedure that borrows fat from another area of your body (usually the abdomen) and then reimplants it in your buttocks to create a voluminous shape. Fuller butt cheeks create rounded hips that make your waist look smaller. Results from BBL can last indefinitely.
