10 Reasons Why The Hourglass Tummy Tuck is Superior to the Traditional Tummy Tuck
There are many celebrities that undergo cosmetic surgery procedures and weight loss surgery to achieve a tighter waist, get their nose done or even have a complete body makeover. Back in 2020 there was talk about ‘Adele’s weight loss secret’s’ because some people thought she had lost weight with exercise and dieting, but with some help from specific cosmetic surgery procedures. Regardless of what surgeries celebrities decide to do (or not to do), there is no secret when it comes to looking and feeling your best with cutting edge procedures like the Hourglass Tummy Tuck.
The Hourglass Tummy Tuck (HGTT) is a newer variation of the traditional tummy tuck surgery, also known as an abdominoplasty. In a regular tummy tuck, excess skin and fat are removed from the abdominal area and the muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened. While this can result in a flatter, more appealing appearance, it does not necessarily create an hourglass-shaped figure.
On the other hand, the hourglass tummy tuck surgery is specifically designed to create a more hourglass-shaped figure by closing the circumference of the abdominal girth creating a waistline that is smaller without the pain of a traditional tummy tuck. This is all achieved without the addition of liposuction and / or transferring fat to the back hips and outer thighs to “ fake “ the look. This procedure developed by Dr. Michael Gray ( West Bloomfield, Michigan) results in a more curvaceous and feminine silhouette, giving you the body most women want.
There are several reasons why the hourglass tummy tuck may be a better option than a regular tummy tuck for some patients.
One of the main advantages of the hourglass tummy tuck (HGTT) is that it produces a more natural-looking result. While a regular tummy tuck can give the appearance of a boxy look, traditional tummy tucks may not necessarily create a more feminine or curvaceous figure, says Dr. Michael Gray from Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa. The hourglass tummy tuck, on the other hand, can gives the flattest and tightest abdomen, smallest waist and a naturally hourglass-shaped figure, which may be more aesthetically pleasing for some patients.

Another benefit of the hourglass tummy tuck is that it can provide longer-lasting results. This is because it not only removes more excess skin and underlying fat, but also contours the waistline, which can help to maintain a more hourglass-shaped figure even with weight fluctuations. The HGTT according to his observations patients have continued to loose weight afterwards which Dr. Gray believes occurs decreasing the amount the stomach holds at any one time.
For patients with excess skin and fat in the flanks, an hourglass tummy tuck may be a better option than a regular tummy tuck. In a regular tummy tuck, this excess skin and fat is not addressed, while in an hourglass tummy tuck, it is specifically targeted through liposuction. This can result in a more dramatic improvement in the appearance of the flanks and a more hourglass-shaped figure.
An hourglass tummy tuck is also more versatile than a regular tummy tuck, as flattening and cinching can be adjusted more dramatically to the needs and limitations of the body. The traditional tuck does not approach the at all the maximal results that are possible with the abdominal wall or skin and underlying fat that is removed. Additionally the HGTT does not rely on liposuction surgery to create results.
An Hourglass Tummy Tuck (HGTT) can be also more beneficial for patients who have multiple concerns beyond just the tummy area, such as hips and back, as liposuction can be used to address these concerns as well, creating an all-over increased contoured look. Patients who are experiencing back pain due to abdominal wall laxity report increased core strength and improvements in pain.
An Hourglass tuck not only improves the appearance of the tummy area but also can enhance the overall proportion of the body by creating a more defined waistline and curvaceous figure. This can result in a more balanced and symmetric look, which can be more aesthetically pleasing for many patients.
For patients who have undergone significant weight loss, bariatric surgery or have a lot of loose skin and fat in the abdominal area, an Hourglass tummy tuck surgery may be a better option than a traditional tummy tuck. The HGTT scar is hidden typically much better than traditional tummy tuck scars which tend to be high. This allows the scar to be hidden much better in a bathing suit, underwear or clothing.
An Hourglass tummy tuck can be combined with other procedures such as liposuction, a breast augmentation or breast lift l, thigh tuck, arm tuck or others procedures desired to create a more harmonious and cohesive overall look. This is ideal for patients who have multiple concerns and want to achieve a more comprehensive body transformation.This is the perfect opportunity to schedule a consultation with Dr. Michael Gray, from West Bloomfield, Michigan to discuss your body goals.
