Contour your hips and get a new shape
Excess hip fat is a common problem in today's society. Your hips are one of the first places on your body to accumulate fat cells. Your body naturally stores fat on your hips to use as energy in case you run out of food. This primal function stems from prehistoric times when humans would go days or longer without a food source. Prehistoric humans needed their hip fat to survive, but now, excess hip weight is nothing but a hindrance and an embarrassment.
lipo of the hips can help smooth your body's contours. It acts to lift, firm, and reduce hips. Hip lipo can help keep your curves in check, make it easier for you to buy clothes, boost your self confidence, and give you a younger-looking backside. Forget all those diets that don't work: tumescent liposuction of the hips is the easiest way to get the contours of your dreams.
Having a lipo surgeon eliminate your hip fat with liposculpture is much easier and safer than undergoing traditional liposuction. The process is simple:
- You are given a local anesthetic to numb the area.
- Your liposculpture surgeon uses a laser to gently melt the fat directly under the skin and to encourage skin tightening.
- Your surgeon then places small incisions to begin the suctioning process with a cannula, which is only about 3mm wide.
- Your lipo surgeon uses slow, gentle movements to remove the fat, meaning limited pain, fewer bruises, and a rapid recovery for you.
The entire tumescent liposculpture procedure usually lasts only an hour or two and acts to reduce fat and tighten skin. lipo patients need only light sedation, and most patients are back at work in one or two days.
- lipo is permanent. Once fat cells are removed from the body, they do not grow back.
- lipo produces noticeable results, leaving you with sculpted, contoured, and slimmer hips.
Hip Lipo Before and After Photos
Why choose hip lipo?
lipo reduces fatty deposits along the hips, restoring proportion to the body. Since moderate amounts of fat can be removed, patients see a marked difference in the weeks after surgery. With lipo, recovery is quick and post-op bruising and pain is minimal. Results are permanent, so you never have to worry about those hips again.
What is the hip lipo like?
Liposculpture is usually performed in an office or clinic setting under local anesthesia. Patients remain awake and alert during the entire procedure. First, the surgeon numbs the skin and places small incisions in the area. Using gentle suction, excess fat is removed with a small vibrating cannula, or straw-like instrument. The cannula is only 3mm-about the size of a cooked spaghetti noodle-and leaves no unsightly scars. The procedure lasts for about one to two hours, and patients walk out of the office with their new, sculpted bodies.
Am I a good candidate for hip lipo?
lipo of the hips is a safe procedure for most patients who have a high accumulation of fatty deposits on the hips. Anyone who has had a gastric bypass, or has lost over 100 pounds might need to take extra precautions and might want to consider further skin-tightening procedures for loose skin. A consultation with the lipo doctor can help address these issues.
Can hip lipo be combined with other procedures?
Yes. Many patients choose to have their hip liposculpture procedure performed in conjunction with other procedures, especially buttock Lipo and thigh Lipo. When hip lipo and other procedures are combined, the laser surgeon can sculpt and slim the entire posterior. Of course, not all patients need lipo on their buttocks, thighs, or other areas, so your surgeon can target the hips alone and perform this procedure by itself if you prefer.
Will I have any scars or sagging skin after hip lipo?
Tumescent lipo of the hips leaves only a couple of small incision sites, each only about 3mm wide. The puncture sites naturally close within a day or two, fading into the natural color of the surrounding skin. Scarring does not usually occur.
lipo is designed to promote skin tightening and to restore collagen. Anyone under the age of 60 with good skin tone will generally not have sagging skin and will instead see an improvement in skin tone and firmness. lipo is specifically designed to promote skin tightening as the fat is removed. However, older patients or those who have experienced dramatic weight loss may still experience sagging or lax skin.
What are the post-op procedures for hip lipo?
Patients generally experience only mild discomfort after the procedure. You can walk immediately afterward, enjoy light to medium activities, and return to work in a day or two. Some, but not all, patients experience mild bruising. A compression garment similar to bike shorts is worn for three days and nights and then for at least eight hours a day for two weeks.
Some patients might experience swelling after the procedure. It might take up to two months to see permanent results from lipo. While it does take a while for the swelling to subside, there is minimal to no pain involved. With lipo of the hips, there are no stitches, and the tiny puncture wounds naturally close within two days. The most common discomfort patients experience is mild soreness, similar to the muscle ache that accompanies strenuous exercise.
