Today the Hourglass Tummy Tuck in Miami is gaining more popularity because it combines the Abdominoplasty technique with the Liposculpture, achieving awe-inspiring results. Generally, Liposculpture is confused with Liposuction, but Liposculpture actually involves the transfer of fat to other parts of the body, to redefine proportions.
In this article, you will learn what this new aesthetic procedure consists of that will help you show off a slim and desirable body.
With an Hourglass Tummy Tuck, surgeons can shape the body to achieve sharp curves, a small waist, and prominent glutes. In this way, patients can effectively remove and redistribute excess fat and skin that is unresponsive to diet and exercise.
With a tummy tuck, the removal of excess skin and fat in the middle section of the body is achieved. With the surgical tightening of the abdominal muscles, making the abdomen look really flat and toned.
The ideal candidates are all those people who want to reshape their body contour, eliminate localized fat, and show off a flat and toned abdomen.
The Hourglass Tummy Tuck procedure combines Abdominoplasty, Liposculpture, and Brazilian Butt Lift techniques to achieve impressive results.
During the Tummy Tuck, skin and fat are removed from the abdominal area, from the lower abdomen to the ribs. Then muscles that may be open due to pregnancy, drastic weight loss, or obesity are closed. In this way, the stomach will be completely flat. Besides, all the fat extracted during this procedure is transferred to the buttocks and hips to increase their volume.
During Liposculpture, excess fat is removed from the back areas, to eliminate those fat deposits that give rise to those annoying back rolls, and hip love handles. This fat is also transferred to the buttocks to provide them with greater volume and better shape.
The combination of this new procedure produces dramatic changes and allows a complete body sculpting and contouring.
This surgical procedure can be performed in 3 to 4 hours. And it can be done under local or general anesthesia. After this procedure, the patient should rest for at least two weeks.
During the first week, the patient may experience swelling and inflammation in the treated areas, especially under the abdomen and on the back. In the second week, the pain will decrease, and so will the inflammation. In the third week, patients can resume their daily routine, avoiding much effort.
The final results of an Hourglass Tummy Tuck can be seen from the 6th month after surgery. In the first few months, the body is inflamed, and the results may not be fully apparent. But as time goes by, the body will look better and better, and you will notice that hourglass shape that you have always desired to have.

If you are planning to have children, it is preferable to postpone your surgery until after you finish having children. Since pregnancies can alter the muscles of the abdomen, weaken them and cause separation. You would lose what was achieved with the surgery. That is why we recommend having surgery after having children.
After surgery, patients are taken to an observation room while the effects of anesthesia wear off. Patients also receive a compression garment for recovery days. Also, drains may be implemented to drain excess fluids. In the first two weeks, the back and abdomen are expected to be swollen and bruised.
With the traditional Tummy Tuck, the goal is only to remove excess fat and hanging skin on the abdomen and tighten the muscles of the abdomen to show a more toned and flatter stomach. Instead, with the hourglass Tummy Tuck, Liposuction is also performed on the entire circumference of the abdomen, including the back, to eliminate fat deposits and achieve a complete body contouring.
It is important that you give your body time to heal and fully recover. For this reason, we recommend resuming light exercises, from the third or fourth post-op week. For heavy and heavy exercises, it will be necessary to wait longer.
Our surgeons implement techniques during the Hourglass Tummy Tuck to minimize scarring. That is why we also recommend lymphatic drainage massages. We invite you to speak to your surgeon so that you can get more information.
In the hands of an experienced and certified surgeon, the procedure is quite safe. It is major surgery, and therefore it should be performed with surgeons who have experience and years of practice, as well as a good reputation. However, many patients experience minimal side effects such as inflammation, bruising, swelling, and numbness in certain areas near the incision.
If you maintain a healthy life, exercising frequently, and eating a balanced diet, your results can be permanent. However, with age, the skin loses its elasticity again, and the appearance of sagging skin may return.
This type of massage helps reduce recovery time, as these massages help drain excess fluids that accumulate from surgery. They also help decrease inflammation.
