Liposuction for Hips and Saddlebags – –
Any woman with “big hips” will tell you that the hips are one of the hardest places to lose fat. Often times all of the diet and exercise in the world won’t reduce (or change the shape of) stubborn hip fat. This is because a person’s hip shape is primarily the result of heredity. Our DNA tells our body where to store fat – and if it’s on the hips it can be very stubborn.
But the good news is that liposuction can be done to the hips to dramatically help lose inches and contour the hips into a more attractive shape. In fact, the hips are one of the most successful areas to show visible improvement with tumescent liposuction!
Dr. Ali is an Oakland County board certified plastic surgeon who has helped hundreds of women and men in Oakland County get the appearance they want with tumescent liposuction of the hips. With tumescent liposuction of the hips, patients can drop several dress or pant sizes – and get slimmer, smoother, sexier hip contours..
How Hip Liposuction is Performed
The hips sit just below the flanks (“lovehandles” or “muffin tops”) on either side of the body. Because the flanks and hips are joined, these areas are often (but not always) treated together during liposuction to achieve the most effective results and smoothest contours.
A very thin tube called a micro-cannula is gently inserted into the fatty area. The surgeon carefully moves the cannula slowly back and forth to break up the fat cells. Then a suction-syringe or mild pump is used to suck the fat cells through the cannula and out of the body.
Hip liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure. So only local anesthetic is used, and you go home shortly after the procedure. There are no scars, and very minimal downtime. You will be given specific instructions about wearing a compression garment afterwards – as well as what medications you can take for any pain. However, many women find that the discomfort is minimal and pain medication is not even needed.
Although the results are “immediate” (because the fat has been sucked out) you may not be able to see the complete results until the swelling gradually subsides (in few days to 4 to 6 weeks)..
Hip Liposuction Benefits
During hip and/or flank liposuction, a skilled surgeon like Dr. Ali can restore attractive and feminine proportions to your body. Hip and flank liposuction can create curves by re-defining the waist and removing the excess fatty tissue that creates a “boxy” look in the mid-section.
Hip liposuction can also remove “bulges” or “saddlebags” where fat is deposited in the wrong places. Giving hips the proper contour with liposuction, actually also helps the butt look plumper and more defined, while making the waist look smaller.
And, for those patients who have unwanted fat in the abdomen or thighs, liposuction can be performed on the hips, belly, and thighs all during the same procedure!
