Hip dips are prominent indentations along the side of your body just beneath the hip bone. They look like an inward curve along the side of your hips. Also called hip dents or violin hips, many women feel self-conscious about this seemingly abnormal curvature.

So, are hip dips bad? Even though hip dips are caused by genetics and don’t pose a threat to your health, you can still feel embarrassed when showing off your body. That's why The Kaplan Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery offers hip dips surgery in Edgewater, NJ.

Hip dips surgery reduces or reshapes the fat deposits in your hips. It's designed to help women who want to feel better about their appearance and natural curves. It may involve advanced liposuction or fat transfer techniques.

Are hip dips bad?

So, are hip dips bad? Hip dips are actually a physical characteristic you inherit from your family. Hip dips causes involve genetics and the amount and distribution of fat in your hips. These dents can make your hips look as if they curve inward, which seems unnatural. There's really nothing wrong with hip dips – you're just genetically predisposed to have them. As a result of this issue, some women have a hard time feeling confident in their bodies. Hip dips surgery can help with that.

What are the benefits of hip dips surgery?

Hip dips surgery is designed to remove or redistribute excess fat from your hips. Procedures like liposuction reduce the appearance of hip dips, while fat transfer could add volume to smooth out uneven curves. Some benefits of surgery include:

  • Improved self-confidence from seeing a slimmer appearance

  • More options when it comes to clothing and swimwear

  • Smooth, natural-looking curves

How do you create a treatment plan?

At The Kaplan Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we personalize hip dips surgery based on your body fat and cosmetic goals. Dr. Kaplan may recommend liposuction, where we break up and remove excess fat using a special tool called a cannula. The process is performed while minimizing damage to the surrounding tissue. During a fat transfer, fat is added to the area according to your needs.

Hip dips surgery recovery and results

Both procedures for hip dips treatment involve minimal discomfort, especially when compared with other cosmetic surgeries. Dr. Kaplan can provide pain medication to keep you comfortable, as well as easy-to-follow guidelines. You can expect some bruising and swelling, which will go down in the following days and weeks. These symptoms are normal, and they don't mean you're not healing properly.

Once the swelling goes down, you can enjoy your newly shaped, slender hips. The removed fat should not return as long as you continue to maintain a consistent weight.
