A hip dip is the naturally-occurring concave shape or inward depression between the love-handles and the upper thighs. Hip dips appear because of factors like fat distribution and muscle mass, but they’re generally considered cosmetically undesirable.
Do you feel self-conscious about your hip dips during beach season? If so, Dr. Grover can fill these concave depressions to make your hips appear fuller and plumper. Dr. Grover provides two hip dip treatment options — both nonsurgical and surgical options: Sculptra and Fat Grafting, respectively.
Sculptra is generally the most popular treatment for hip dip treatment and hip augmentations amongst celebrities who want a more aesthetically pleasing figure and buttocks. It’s the ideal treatment for those who want a nicely feminine hour-glass figure without invasive and surgical procedures. Sculptra’s effects last for up to 2 years, making it one of the most effective and long-lasting non-surgical options for hip dip treatment.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved dermal filler that facilitates localized collagen production in the body, thus improving its plumpness. This dermal filler is composed of Poly-L-Lactic Acid, a synthetic sugar naturally found in the body.
Sculptra is a completely safe and fully biocompatible product that triggers collagen production within your body, rather than injecting fillers deep within the skin. During the procedure, our doctor injects Sculptra in carefully selected locations, restoring the youthful appearance of your hips and making them appear voluminous where they previously were not.
You’re a suitable candidate for Sculptra if you have deep indentations around your hips, making them look flattened from the sides. You’re the right candidate for Sculptra if you want to perfect an hour-glass figure with full and voluminous buttocks.
However, Sculptra may not be the ideal treatment for those who want immediate gratification. Sculptra works gradually, facilitating collagen production over several successive sessions, so patients see long term but not immediate results. While you may start seeing the results within 6 weeks, the full procedure may go on for as long as 6 months.
Fat grafting, also called liposculpting, is a surgical hip dip treatment in which fat is suctioned from one part of your body and injected into the hip dip area, filling it up to make them look round and voluminous. Alternatively, silicone implants or artificial fillers may also be used to fill up the hip dip instead of fat grafts.
Some people are scared of surgical procedures. However, fat grafting is a low-risk and simple surgical procedure with a negligible risk of side effects or complications. Some of the potential side effects of fat grafting are bruising and pain at the site of incisions, swelling, and scarring. However, in most cases, the side-effects dissipate gradually.
You’re a suitable candidate for fat grafting if you want immediate results and don’t mind going under the knife. During this procedure, the doctor surgically injects fat tissues into the targeted region from another part of your body, which produces immediate results. You don’t have to schedule several sessions over six months.
The ideal candidate for fat grafting should be within 30% of their ideal body weight with responsive and elastic skin. Your doctor may advise against this surgical treatment if you’ve got an auto-immune bleeding condition or take blood-thinning medications. However, Dr. Grover will carefully discuss your medical history and examine your body to ensure you’re suitable for fat grafting.
