How Do You Get Rid of Hip Dips?
No treatments will actually get rid of hip dips. However, treatment can dramatically reduce their appearance and give you smooth, symmetrical curves. The following list covers a range of available treatments. We recommend a consultation to determine which ones we offer and which are right for you.
Hip dips are caused by bone structure, so exercise cannot change them. However, exercises that strengthen and enhance the muscles of the hips and buttocks may help reduce their appearance. A trainer can help you develop a safe workout routine.
Dermal fillers can be used to add volume and minimize the appearance of hip dips. Fillers used for hip dips are often the same for adding volume to the cheeks or filling deep lines and wrinkles. Fillers are safe and widely used for aesthetic purposes.
Fat transfer is more technologically advanced than dermal fillers but results last much longer. BeautiFill™ fat transfer removes fat from a donor area and injects it into the hip dips. The fat cells will integrate and remain in place, adding natural-looking volume to soften your hip dips. These transferred fat cells can last the rest of your life, although they will change if your weight fluctuates. This is the most popular method for treating hip dips among our patients.
Hip implants may be used to fill hip dips. These implants are typically made of body-safe silicone. While implants are intended to be permanent, they may have to be removed due to side effects. They may not look as natural as other methods.
Body contouring with truSculpt® iD can contour the area to reduce the appearance of hip dips. Smoothing the hips and thighs can create a smoother contour, making hip dips less noticeable. This treatment is non-invasive and safe for almost anyone.
What Results Will I See From Hip Dip Treatments?
All of these treatments make hip dips less noticeable, but none will eliminate them. However, you may notice that you feel more confident and that your clothes fit better.
The results of dermal fillers become visible immediately. Fat transfer results will fully develop over a few weeks, and the results of truSculpt® iD become visible after about three months. You will see improvements in the contour between your hips and thighs, giving you a more sculpted appearance.
