The male body tends to have a narrow waist and hips, plus less fat in the lower body, so to make the body appear more feminine, male to female (MTF) body contouring surgery uses implants or autologous fat transfers to add volume to the hips and buttocks. In the initial consultation, Oklahoma City cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin will ask the patient about their body shape goals, assess the patient’s current body shape, and then develop a unique body contouring surgery plan to create a more feminine appearance. If the patient has enough excess fat to meet their needs, Drs. Nuveen and Caplin of Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates can perform an autologous fat transfer or Brazilian butt lift that takes fat from unwanted areas and grafts the purified fat to the hips or butt. If the patient does not have enough body fat, silicone implants can be used to enhance the curves of the hips and buttocks.

For body contouring using fat transfer, the surgeon will first use liposuction techniques to remove fat from the patient (typically in the abdomen and arms), which will be filtered and purified. Once the fat is prepared, the plastic surgeon will carefully inject the fat into the hips and/or buttocks to achieve the patient’s desired fullness and projection. The surgeon will typically overfill the area to account for the fat that will be reabsorbed by the body during recovery. For body contouring with silicone implants, the plastic surgeon will choose silicone implants that will meet the patient’s goals and securely place them in the hips and/or buttocks for the most natural appearance.
Body contouring surgery, whether the surgeon is using a fat transfer or implants, is usually performed with the patient under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery in an accredited surgical facility. After the surgery, the treated areas will be bandaged and put into compression garments to encourage blood flow. The patient is usually able to return home after the procedure to recover at home with aftercare instructions and tips from the plastic surgeon. Patients should schedule and attend any recommended follow-up appointments so the plastic surgeon can assess the patient’s healing and results.

MTF Body Contouring FAQs
Feminine Body Shapes?
Every female body is unique, but in general, most women fall into one of four classic body shapes: pear-shaped, banana, apple, shaped, and hourglass. The pear-shaped body carries more weight in the highs, butt, and thighs compared to the bust. The banana shape, which is the most common, has a fairly equal distribution of fat between the bust, waist, hips, butt, and thighs. The apple-shaped body has wider shoulders, a larger bust, a larger waist that is less defined, and thinner hips, butt, and thighs. The hourglass shape, which is considered usually considered the ideal female shape, has a narrow, well-defined waist and fat is equally distributed between the bust and lower body.
If the patient has enough excess body fat, an autologous fat transfer will usually produce the most natural-looking results. Fat transfer has the added benefit of removing fat from unwanted areas to further slim and improve the body contour. A fat transfer that adds volume to the buttocks is more commonly known as a Brazilian butt lift.
Silicone Body Implants?
For patients who have a low body fat percentage, the body shape can still be changed through silicone implants. The plastic surgeon will help the patient pick out the shape and size of the implant before the surgery based on the patient’s current body and cosmetic goals.
The waist-to-hip ratio is calculated by dividing the measurement of the waist in inches by the measurement of the hips in inches. Researchers have discovered that women who are considered more attractive have a 0.7 ratio, while males who are considered attractive have a 0.9 ratio. Patients should maintain realistic goals and expectations for their body contouring surgery since the patient’s current body shape may limit what the plastic surgeon can accomplish.
