If you are unhappy with the shape of your hips and desire a more voluminous shape, you may be a good candidate for a hip augmentation. Hip augmentation can sculpt the waist and hips and give you a curvier figure. Candidates should be in good general health, be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for surgery. If considering a fat grafting hip augmentation, patients should have adequate body fat.
A hip augmentation can involve implants or fat grafting. Implants are made from silicone, similar to breast implants. Implants can provide a natural look with minimal risk. An incision is made near the hips and implants are inserted under the muscle. Implants are recommended for patients with low body fat and is a more permanent solution than a fat grafting procedure. During a fat grafting procedure, fat is removed from another part of the body (typically the abdomen or thighs) and re-injected into the hips. This procedure is a good option for those who also want to improve the shape of another part of the body.
