Treatment of Hip Dips with Fat Transfer

Treatment Of Hip Dips With Fat Transfer from Dr. Dass in In Los Angeles, CA
In pursuit of the best body contour, women often desire correction of hip dips, also described as hip dents, hip divots, or violin hips. The hip dip is a normal contour depression of the hip, located between the love-handles and the outer thighs, anatomically known as the trochanteric depression. It is normal for this region to be flat, because there is essentially no muscle located here, so exercise cannot improve the depression. Some women are genetically predispositioned to store more fat in this region, creating a more smooth (convex) contour, and this can be desirable, because it appears more feminine.

The appearance of hip dips can be accentuated with weight gain, because added fat deposition along the flanks (love-handles) makes the flanks protrude more than the hip. Performing liposuction of the regions above and below the depression (ie, the flanks or love-handles, and the outer thighs) certainly improves overall silhouette, because the depression appears less severe. Additionally, fat transfer to this region can improve the overall contour, and drastically improve the hip dent. Unfortunately, only a small volume of fat can be injected directly into this region, because it is so thin. Furthermore, since there is no muscle, a small percentage of fat survives. Hence, fat injection is also added progressively more posteriorly (toward the back) allowing added volume restoration by injecting into a larger more distensible region, and also into the gluteus medius muscle. This is why successful correction of the hip dip involves not only fat transfer, but also liposuction of the region above (flanks), and possibly the region below (outer thighs).

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
