Bodies come in all shapes and sizes. However, there are four common body types, each with unique concerns.

Dr. Katzen is highly experienced in working with men and women to help them determine the best plastic surgery options for their body type. You may want to change some things about your body, but you need more information before deciding what to do.

Here, we want to discuss the four main body types in more detail. Additionally, we will discuss plastic surgery procedures that can enhance your body, and ideally, help you feel more comfortable, and give you more confidence.

The Hourglass Body Type

Women with hourglass figures have what most people consider the ideal body shape. These patients have a well-defined waistline with broader hips. Marilyn Monroe is known as one of the world’s most beautiful women and had an hourglass shape. She was 5’5”, 118 pounds, 36-24-36, and 36D breast size.

However, some patients with hourglass body types have breasts that are larger or smaller than what is considered typical for this shape. In addition, as time passes, women’s bodies change due to weight gain or loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or because of the natural aging process.

Plastic Surgery Options for Hourglass-Shaped Bodies

Dr. Katzen has performed many procedures on patients with hourglass body types. Breast lifts and breast augmentations are common, and some patients desire both procedures. Breast plastic surgery helps restore the curves patients with hourglass figures once had but have disappeared over time.

Many hourglass body type women undergo Mommy Makeover surgery. A Mommy Makeover is customized to address problem areas and may include a tummy tuck, breast lift, and liposuction of the lower back and flanks. Stretch marks may also be addressed during a Mommy Makeover procedure.

The Pear Body Type

Typically, pear-shaped bodies have smaller breasts and waists with average-sized shoulders. Patients with this body type are broader through the hips and buttocks. Many women with pear body types wear push-up bras or other clothing techniques to make themselves look fuller. Jennifer Lopez has a pear body shape. However, most people do not realize her pear shape body because of how she dresses.

Sometimes, it is impossible to conceal a pear body type with clothing, like during swimsuit season. Fortunately, some swimsuits offer support for the breasts. However, the pear body shape is not as noticeable when wearing a push-up bra compared to a swimsuit.

Plastic Surgery Procedures for Pear Body Types

Frequently, patients with pear body types come to Dr. Katzen for plastic surgery recommendations. They may feel self-conscious about their appearance and find it challenging to buy clothing that fits well.

Patients with pear-shaped figures may be interested in breast augmentation to increase bust volume. In addition, Dr. Katzen may recommend liposuction to remove unwanted fat from the flanks. Dr. Katzen may also discuss a saddlebag reduction or a 360 Lower Body Lift .

The Rectangle Body Type

Patients with rectangle body types have long and lean figures from top to bottom. Their shoulders, hips, and busts are the same width. Nicole Kidman and Taylor Swift are examples of celebrities with rectangle body types.

Often, women are envious of people with rectangular body types. However, rectangle body types may feel uncomfortable and self-conscious about how they look. Frequently, they desire a more shapely appearance because they find curves more attractive.

Rectangle Body Plastic Surgery Options

Women with rectangle body types may be excellent candidates for breast implants, liposuction, and fat transfer. Similarly, patients may consider buttock implants to enhance derriere volume.

If you have a rectangle body shape, talk with Dr. Katzen about your options for plastic surgery. He will perform an assessment and give you procedure recommendations to achieve your desired appearance.

The Apple Body Type

Patients with apple-shaped bodies carry most of their weight around their waistline. In addition, they may have slim arms and legs, which causes them to feel self-conscious about their bodies. Adele and Melissa McCarthy are two celebrities with apple body types.

There are many clothing options available to camouflage apple-shaped bodies. However, these patients often complain about how difficult it is to find flattering clothing that fits them well. In addition, they may have back pain from carrying excess weight around the middle and top of their bodies.

Apple Body Shape Plastic Surgery Procedures

There are several plastic surgery procedures apple body-shaped patients may find desirable. For example, liposuction is commonly requested to remove unwanted fat from the waistline, buttocks, and thighs. Additionally, some patients with larger breasts may benefit from breast reduction surgery .

Dr. Katzen may recommend a Brazilian butt lift because it involves transferring fat from an unwanted area to the buttocks. This procedure adds volume to the rear end, resulting in a curvier, flattering silhouette.

Male Body Concerns and Plastic Surgery Recommendations

Women are not the only patients desiring plastic surgery to enhance their appearance. Often, men contact us with concerns unique to them. For example:

  • Men with oval body types have thinner shoulders and hips and broader torsos. These patients may benefit from VASER liposuction and male breast reduction for gynecomastia .

  • Men with triangle body shapes have wider waists and hips and narrow shoulders. Dr. Katzen may recommend a 360 Lower Body Lift or fat transfer for these patients.

  • Men who have lost significant weight may be excellent candidates for torsoplasty , arm lift surgery , or another recommended procedure that addresses their needs.
