Cosmetic Surgery Of The Waistline – Your Frequently Asked Questions Answered!
One of the areas that is commonly addressed in cosmetic surgery is the waistline. Naturally, this also means that a lot of patients often have questions about these procedures and why they are obtained. For patients who are interested in cosmetic surgery of the waistline specifically, we recommend reading the information below.
Why Is The Waistline Often Targeted In Cosmetic Surgery?
Generally speaking, once we have created a curvature in the waist, the patient looks slimmer, fitter and healthier. It is much easier to find clothes that are more attractive, and the body develops more of a feminine look. If one looks at the difference between the classic male shape and the female, one will notice that the feminine shape has more curvature.
Should The Waistline Be As Flat As Possible?
No. Being too flat is not good, as that will mean that there is no shape and no femininity to the body. Therefore, we perform liposculpture which selectively removes fat from different areas to create the curvature that is required.
How Does One Decide Which Areas To Remove Fat From?
This comes with experience and often is determined by the patient’s own shape and where they have fat. In the assessment, the first thing I do is have a look at the patient standing, so that I can assess what would be the ideal shape. I then feel the fat to see where I can remove fat from. I generally take the maximum amount of fat from the waist line and hips to give the curvature before the hips bone and outer thighs. The fat is removed in layers and also in a gradual sloping process so that there is no dent but rather a natural curve.
Are Fat Injections Used To Create A More Feminine Shape?
Yes. Many women today are seeking fat injection of the buttocks to give more of a voluminous appearance in this area, which will enhance the curvature; this has been classically known as the Brazilian buttock. Fat is taken and treated with stem cells, so that it will hopefully last longer and the fat is also stored in our specialised fat bank.
Patients who have a liposuction procedure get the opportunity to store the harvested fat in our dedicated fat bank. If the patient should decide to require a fat transfer in the future, they can call upon this stored fat in our fat bank.
Can Breast Enlargement Be Performed At The Same Time For Further Curvature?
Yes, breast enlargement can be done at the same time and is usually placed under the muscle to enhance the volume of the upper body. This works well with curvature of the chest followed by the natural concavity of the waist and the convexity of the thighs.
Is There An Age Limit Required For This Procedure?
No. We perform this procedure on all patients of all different ages. I think patients can get equally nice results regardless of their age.
Naturally, before a patient can obtain any procedure, the patient must be in good general health; this means the patient must be able to recover from the procedure they are having. So, before you have a treatment, Dr Lanzer will determine your suitability for that procedure.
Can There Be Skin Wrinkling In That Area?
Actually, this is one of the areas which tends to be less common to have wrinkling as opposed to very large drooping stomachs. The skin tends to contract very well in this area and is lays itself nicely down on the underlying muscle.
