The female body has curvy and round lines while the male body has straight and angular lines. The breasts and hips with pronounced volume are the characteristics of the female body. Excess fat deposits and loosening in the hip region, sacral region where the hip intersects with the waist caused by weight gain and loss result in a deterioration in the aesthetic appearance of the hip.
- Providing volume and contour to the hip with fat injection,
- Hip contouring with silicone prosthesis,
- Hip lift,
- Surgical interventions for eliminating collapses in the hip are the methods that can be used in hip contouring, in addition to that, procedures are performed in accordance with patient’s needs.
In practice, the most common method used is hip contouring with liposuction and fat injection. Fat is taken by liposuction from excess fat areas, and these fats are given to the collapsed area after being subjected to a special process.
However, hip lift surgery is inevitable in patients with too much sagging.
A volume and shape is given to the hip with silicone prosthesis in patients who do not have enough fat in their bodies or whose hip is not curvy and not pronounced as much as in Latin race. Silicone hip implant surgery is performed through an incision of about 7 cm made in the curvature between the right and left hips. Silicone prosthesis can be implanted under the skin, under the muscle membrane (the fascia) or intramuscularly. However, intramuscular applications are preferred in suitable cases for good results and to protect patient from undesirable consequences. After the surgery, a special bandage is applied and it is recommended to lie flat while patient’s legs are slightly curled from the waist and knee or to lie on the side.Lying face downwards is not recommended a lot. Because the oedema accumulated around the nerves may cause compression on the nerves, leading to pain. At the end of surgery, a silicone drain (tube) is used to drain the blood and fluid that may accumulate inside. A few days later, this drain is pulled out. Patient can start walking on the second day. Although undesirable results, such as blood or fluid accumulation, infection, wound dehiscence, may occur in the early postoperative period or undesirable results, such as discomfort and tension feeling in the hip, stretch marks, recognition of the implant from the outside, may occur in the late postoperative period, these complications occur very rarely if very large implants are not used, drain is applied and the surgery is carried with a very attentive surgical technique.
