Could a fat transfer give me the hourglass shape?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 21 April 2012


My waist goes in, then my hips go out but in-between the top and bottom bit of my hips they go in again. It is frustrating because I almost have an hourglass figure, it's just this gap that is preventing me from accomplishing it.

I have done research and was wondering if a fat transfer could be done to fill in the 'gap' in my hips so I could have the perfect hourglass figure and also how much the cost would be?


Typically, the fat transfer to the hips would be sourced from the waistline to create a more defined appearance.

From your description, that may not be possible if the waistline is already well-defined. In order to have sufficient volume for the transfer, it would be necessary to identify a suitable donor region.

This would be classified as large area fat transfer, since the volume of treatment is likely to be 250 to 300 cc each side.
