Surgical procedures for improving the form and function of the human body are evolving as medical science advances. Techniques for modifying the body through surgery – including the hips – are being improved as the demand for more procedures increases.
Candidates for Hip Augmentation
If you are not satisfied with the size, contour, or proportion of your hips – or are looking to enhance their shape – a Hip Augmentation procedure may be the answer for you.
There are two basic procedures for Hip Augmentation, implants and fat grafting. Implants come in various shapes and sizes to suit the body type of the patient. Fat grafting is just that; fat is harvested from the patient’s body, processed and purified, and then strategically re-injected into the hip area. Sometimes hip implants are paired with Liposuction of the lower back for a more balanced result.
Hip Augmentation can increase the width of your hip span, improve the look of your legs, and provide a more pleasing shape to your entire body.
