Excessive sagging of the skin accumulated around the hips irritates many people. A hip lift surgery is an operation designed to eliminate excess skin and tissue from the hips to provide a softer, more curvy transition from waist to thighs.
Ideal candidates for hip lifting should be in good health overall, with realistic expectations about their procedures. Patients considering hip lift surgery often complain of the appearance of their hips, although they lead a healthy lifestyle. People who want hip lift surgery may also experience:
Body contouring treatments have been done before,
Poor skin elasticity
Excessive tissue sagging in the hips, lower back and front upper thigh fat density
Discomfort due to excessive tissue in the hips can direct people to hip lift surgery.
Hip lift surgery is a treatment procedure performed in a fully-fledged hospital or clinic using general anesthesia. The length of the procedure may vary, but it takes approximately two hours on average.
Skilled plastic surgeons perform hip lift surgery along the lower part of the outer hips with a cut that they can easily hide with clothing or underwear. Liposuction can be used with hip lift surgery to remove excess fat and provide improved styling results. After the excess tissue is removed, the remaining skin is over the hips to emphasize the new contour.
Doctors keep patients undergoing hip lift surgery for the first two weeks after surgery, starting with the first two days after surgery. After this, follow-up care is performed at weekly and monthly intervals up to one year from the operation. After the operation, it is possible to experience some bruising, swelling and redness. It is necessary to wear a compression garment to help minimize swelling and facilitate healing. Most patients can return to work after a week, depending on the physical demands of the job. Your physical activities should be limited for the first two weeks. Patients can return to their normal exercise routine after three to four weeks.
The skin and fat are permanently eliminated from the hips, and the new hip contour should be long-lasting. To achieve the best possible results, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle that includes diet and exercise.
