Hip Dips Surgery – is it Worth It?
Hip dips are also known as the trochanteric depression. They can be problem areas for many women who want a smoother hip shape and an hourglass figure.

Hip dips surgery is done with liposuction and fat transfer. The surgery can be done alone or paired with other procedures such as a Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBLs) and Lipo 360. For women considering the procedure on its own, many wonder if the surgery is worth the time and recovery and how long the results will last.

Hip dips surgery is done with liposculpting and fat grafting. Surgeons suction fat from other areas of the body, such as stomach flanks, buttocks, thighs or back and inject it into the trochanter area to sculpt a smoother hip curve. Patients are typically placed under general anesthesia and released to go home the same day. After the surgery patients may have mild pain at the injection sites and the areas where fat was suctioned. For two (2) weeks after surgery patients may experience swelling, bruising and pain. It may take up to three (3) months to see results from the fat graft.
