Over the past few years, the waif look has waned in popularity as a more voluptuous figure has come to be considered en vogue. That may explain why I’ve recently had a few patients at my practice in Houston ask about plastic surgery procedures that enhance a woman’s curves. If you are naturally curvy (or you would like to be), here are 3 procedures that can help you enhance your assets.
- Breast Lift
Many women who are well-endowed are happy with the size of their breasts, but they aren’t happy with their breast shape. A breast lift can give your breasts a better shape and position without compromising size. This procedure is ideal for restoring a more youthful look, balancing asymmetry and improving the appearance of the breasts. During this procedure, Dr. Cash often uses a technique described as an “auto-augmentation” where she will use your own natural tissue to re-shape your breasts and use your own natural tissue to mimic the fullness of an implant.
Although many people think of liposuction as a fat removal procedure, it’s actually more accurately described as a body-shaping technique. Liposuction can improve your body proportions while maintaining your curves. For example, a woman who is full on top and bottom may choose to have liposuction of the abdomen to further emphasize her hourglass shape.
- Breast augmentation
Sometimes, women who are curvy on bottom may not be curvy on top. A breast augmentation can provide more balanced body proportions by adding volume to the breasts. This is a very popular option for women who are pear-shaped with full, curvy hips and a smaller chest.
