Corset As Compression Garment, Will It Give Me the Waist I Want?

I want an very small waist with a certain shape. I would like a combination of the "conical" and "s-bend"(for the profile, refined back with larger bottom) shapes. If I had lipo/cool sculpting, and then wore a special smooth-interiored corset with a lighter compression garment, could I get this shape? Or, alternatively, would a surgeon be able to give me this ratio of waist to hips? I have a lot of extra fat on the waist but not so much on this hips, so I figure it could be possible.

Sculpting the waist and compression garments

Thanks for the question. In our San Francisco area practice we perform a great deal of liposuction. It is a fantastic way remove fat in a targeted way. It can definitely help shape the waist line. But don't forget - your waist line is produced by more than just fat. Your waist shape is also determined by the integrity and position abdominal wall muscles and your abdominal skin. Liposuction isn't great at managing either one of those and procedures like tummy tucks can help there. The compression garment helps with skin retraction and minimizes swelling. It, however, can't put curves where you didn't have them before or where the surgeon didn't perform work. Make sure you consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss all the options possible. I hope this helps.
