Cinched Hourglass Waistline
Women who are not naturally fortunate to have a curvy body often turn to alternative methods to contour their waistline and enhance their curves. For centuries, a thin waist has been an admired aspect of the perfect female hourglass silhouette. Out with the old-fashioned corset, today we have a effective options to manage our midriff. At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin, VASER liposuction system is a minimally invasive waist circumference reduction solution. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez are legendary for their hourglass figure. Defined by measurements, this figure features a wider upper and lower half of the body, while the middle, or abdominal area, is narrow in shape, resembling an hourglass.
An “cinched” figure means you have a waist to hip ration of about 0.66. This is determined by taking the measurement of your waist at its narrowest point and your hips at its widest point. Other shapes include pear, apple and rectangle.
- Some people have a genetic predisposition to accumulate fat around the midriff and hips, the familiar pear versus apple shape scenario.
- Hormonal changes around menopause can also cause fat accumulation more centrally around the abdomen as well as shortening of the spine moving you further away from an hourglass figure and towards an apple figure.
- An accumulation of fat inside the abdomen around the organs or under the skin around the waist can also move you away from a small waist.
- The shape of your, rib cage, hip bones and your pelvic bone also affect the waist to hip ratio which is the most important factor in having an hourglass figure.
The aim of body contouring procedures is to address any excess fat or skin in areas that are excessive and add or restore volume to areas that are deficient. This is the most effective way to restore, enhance or create an “hour-glass” silhouette. Usually this is accomplished by performing liposuction of the fat under the skin of the love handles, muffin tops, abdomen, and bra rolls. In some people and fat is transferred to the hips and buttock, a lipofilling procedure widely known as Brazilian Buttock Lift (BBL).
Stomach liposuction with VASER is a lot less invasive than traditional liposuction. Fat removal of the abdomen by VASER liposuction is associated with minimal disruption to a busy schedule. The VASER Lipo procedure remove unwanted fat via tumescent local anaesthetic numbing, which is far less invasive than the old-fashioned liposuction procedures. Whether a lot or a little need to be removed, a dramatic aesthetic improvement can be achieved and return to normal daily activity within days.
The abdomen is a problem area for many women, particularly after childbirth and responds very well to liposuction.
Our surgeon will be able to remove some of your unwanted fat to permanently give you the smaller, sculpted waist you desire. The results are only permanent if you are committed to living a healthy lifestyle afterward. By eating right and staying active, you will be able to keep the fat off and enjoy your curvy, full-figured body for years to come.
The effectiveness of the cinched waist VASER body contouring is hampered by several factors. A wide chest/rib cage or a narrow pelvis/hips will reduce the aesthetic results of body contouring with VASER Liposuction. Excessive intra-abdominal fat will limit how flat we can make your tummy and how narrow we can make your waist. Despite these limitations, the VASER liposuction and waist cinching procedure is powerful in improving your waist to hip ratio and getting you closer to that “hour-glass” figure that you desire.

Post Tummy Tuck Dilemma
A tummy tuck will result in a flatter, firmer abdomen, but it does not address pockets of fat on the hips, sides or back. The most common complaint after abdominoplasty is a persistent wide and unappealing waistline. Patients in Dublin who underwent abdominoplasty come to Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic for hourglass liposuction to achieve a more sculpted and flowing waistline. Our surgeon uses VASER liposuction to create a defined and cinched waist, and may incorporate the procedure in other surrounding areas, to make your hips appear fuller, ultimately achieving an hourglass figure.
During your consultation with Dr Kahlout, he will explain in detail the body cinching technique used in VASER liposuction. He will also determine if you are the right candidate for liposuction, which includes a medical assessment, amount of surplus fat, and evaluation of skin firmness and elasticity.
Results & Recovery
Small incisions will be made into the skin, and a special fluid is injected into the fatty tissue to minimize pain and bleeding. A suction device, called a VASER disrupts the unwanted fat which is then removed using a tiny cannula.
After the procedure the patient must wear a compression garment for one to two weeks. Mild discomfort and bruising may last up to two weeks and swelling may last for two weeks to four weeks. During the post operative recovery patients are advised to mobilise early and return to normal daily activity within a couple of days. In general the full effect of liposuction gets better over-time and is seen four months after the procedure is performed.
