What is Hip Dip Surgery?

Published by Webmaster

Hip dips, also known as violin hips or hip divots, are the inward curves or indentations along the side of your body, below the hip bone. While many embrace these natural curves, others may desire a more sculpted, streamlined look. If this sounds familiar, you might benefit from working with a plastic surgeon. Read on to learn more about hip dips and the kinds of procedures used to eliminate them.

Hip Dip Surgery: What to Expect 

Hip dip surgery involves either the removal or redistribution of fat to enhance the contour of your hips. Fat can be transferred from other areas of the body to fill in the hip dips, or excess fat can be removed from around the hip area to create a more defined shape. In some cases, solid silicone implants may be used to achieve the desired contour. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Recovering from Hip Dip Surgery

Recovery involves some pain and bruising at the treatment sites, and it may take up to six months to see the full effects of the surgery. You’ll need someone to drive you home post-procedure and should wear a compression garment as advised by your surgeon to aid healing.

Good Candidates for Hip Dip Surgery

Ideal candidates are non-smokers, within 30 percent of their ideal body weight, have skin with good elasticity, and do not have conditions that impair healing. Those with significant recent weight loss, autoimmune disorders, or on blood-thinning medication may not be suitable candidates.

Is Hip Dip Surgery Safe?

While generally safe, liposuction procedures like hip augmentation can have risks such as pain, bruising, swelling, and, more rarely, fat migration or infection. Carefully following your surgeon’s post-operative instructions will help minimize these risks.
