Improve your body shape
If that volume on your sides is pure skin, you would probably need a vertical skin resection through a Fleur de Lis incision (And may take advantage of the incision and perform during the same procedure a tight muscle repair in order to achieve a more curvaceous waist line) or lateral incision (which I personally do not like because both are scars very visible).
Be encouraged, whichever you chose for you, will achieve a good result.
Have a great journey.

In addition, I would suggest high def VASER liposuction to your anterior abdominal wall or six pack. High def VASER liposuction will sculpt your sixpack and define your torso.
If however, you are left with excess skin after lateral torso liposuction and your skin does not shrink wrap, then I would suggest skin excision. This can be accomplished by making an incision from the armpit to the upper hip. This will help to accentuate your hourglass figure.
Hope this helps in your making process. Good luck.
