When it comes to a sleek, sculpted midsection, tummy tuck surgery has long been a go-to solution. Also known as abdominoplasty, this transformative procedure helps men and women alike reclaim their confidence and restore harmony in their body proportions. At Stoker Plastic Surgery, we offer our own signature enhancements to traditional abdominoplasty surgery. How does an ‘Hourglass Tummy Tuck’ work? Read on to find out!
The Art and Science of Tummy Tuck Surgery
A traditional tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area while tightening the underlying muscles. It is ideal for patients seeking a flatter and firmer abdomen after pregnancy or significant weight loss.
Technical skill and a keen aesthetic eye are equally important for successful outcomes. The best tummy tuck surgeons in Los Angeles can contour the body, restore muscular integrity, and create a natural-looking belly button—all without making it obvious that the patient has had work done.

Introducing the Hourglass Tuck Technique
Having performed hundreds of body contouring surgeries, I developed my signature Hourglass Tuck technique to provide patients with a comprehensive body rejuvenation solution. This approach incorporates additional tummy tuck refinements to sculpt the hips, flanks, and waistline. The result is a beautifully defined silhouette to complement the tightening effects of the tummy tuck.
The Hourglass Tuck Process
The Hourglass Tuck involves the following steps:
Extended Liposuction: Liposuction sculpts and contours the abdomen and surrounding areas for a more defined figure.
Muscle Tightening: Like in a traditional tummy tuck, the underlying muscles are tightened to restore a firmer and more toned appearance.
Excess Tissue Removal: Excess skin and fat are removed, and the remaining skin is meticulously repositioned to achieve a harmonious and balanced look.
Waist Sculpting: By strategically addressing the waist area, the Hourglass Tuck technique enhances the curves and proportions of the entire torso.
Pubic Lift: Skin laxity and fat around the mons pubis are also addressed with a pubic lift, leading to greater body confidence and a more comprehensive result.
Advantages of an Hourglass Tuck
The Hourglass Tuck offers a specialized approach for those who desire enhanced waist contouring and overall body rejuvenation. Some of its many benefits include:
- Enhanced Hourglass Figure: This technique is specifically designed to create a curvier waist and accentuated hips, providing a more feminine and youthful look.
- Comprehensive Body Contouring: The Hourglass Tuck extends beyond the abdomen to address the entire midsection, offering a more holistic approach to body contouring.
- Natural and Balanced Results: Stoker Plastic Surgery’s expertise ensures that the results of the Hourglass Tuck are harmonious with each patient’s unique body proportions, resulting in a balanced and natural appearance.
