Hip dips are quite a concern for many women who work hard to achieve an hourglass figure. You might sometimes feel self-conscious about your hips dips, but they are completely normal and there is a way to achieve to fill them out to give you the smooth and seamless look you’ve always dreamed of.
A Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that helps to lift and contour the buttocks. Not only will a BBL give you a perkier and more toned butt, but it also has the added benefit of contouring other areas of the body where the fat is taken from. Plus, who doesn’t want to feel more confident in a bikini or a pair of tight jeans? So why wait? You deserve to have the body you’ve always dreamed of, perfectly sculpted by the hands of Dr. Cat.
What are hip dips?
Hip dips, can be defined as a slight change in the hip bone shape. They might be more noticeable in some women and are formed by the pelvic anatomy. They are hollow or bone cavity that develops right above the thigh, on the exterior of the buttocks, and on the bottom pelvic bone. They are completely normal in our bodies and not a sign of any medical condition.
Hip dips can be more apparent in certain people depending on several factors like genes, bone structure, and muscle mass. For instance, those with a high body fat percentage could have more evident hip dips because that area lacks muscular development. It is also common in those who naturally have a wider pelvic bone structure.
Many people opt for a balanced diet and high-intensity workouts to reduce body fat and achieve a naturally curvy figure.
Hip dips vs love handle – know the difference
Love handles are the extra fat that sits on the sides of the waistline, also known as “muffin tops” or “spare tires.” They are a common problem area for many people and can be caused by a variety of factors such as genetics, poor diet, lack of exercise, and hormonal changes.
Love handles can be difficult to target and reduce through exercise and diet alone, as they are often composed of both subcutaneous fat (fat beneath the skin) and visceral fat (fat around the organs), which are more difficult to lose.
Dr. Cat explains that Liposuction 360 is great for reducing love handles, which includes the removal of fat surrounding your abdomen, back, and waist. But how does it help in enhancing your hip area?
How to fill hip dips? How does a Brazilian butt lift work?
Dr. Cat will perform two surgeries – fat grafting, commonly known as liposuction 360, and BBL. She will use liposuction to extract the unwanted fat from regions like the stomach, thigh, and back. She’ll make thin, barely visible incision cuts in those areas and use a thin tube (called a cannula) to remove the fat.
Once she has removes the fat, she’ll clean and process it to make sure it’s in the best possible state for injection. Then, she’ll carefully inject the fat into your hip dip area to create a curvy, natural-looking, and balanced shape. Dr. Cat further explains that it is like sculpting with clay – she is taking away from certain areas and adding to others to create a new, improved shape.
The entire process could take 1 hour or more to get desired results with little to no pain, and you’ll be under general anesthesia during the surgery. It’s important to note that your surgeon will be super careful and precise during the procedure to avoid any bumps, asymmetric shapes, or complications like skin and tissue injuries.
“I have developed a gentle, multi-phase, liposuction and fat transfer technique that has very high-fat survival and minimizes complications,” says Dr. Cat.
Can anyone get a Brazilian Butt Lift?
It depends on your body structure and the fat percentage required for liposuction to fill inside your buttocks. In case you have less fat around your stomach areas, then your surgeon will take out excess fat from other regions like your arms, thighs, neck, legs, etc.
Dr. Cat will thoroughly analyze your body and the ideas you have in your mind and provide you with a realistic approach to achieving them and what outcome you can expect.
How to prepare yourself for this procedure?
If you’re on a weight-loss journey, it is advised to achieve your goals before starting this procedure, as it gives you more accurate, long-term results with a quick healing process.
The next thing is to quit your smoking habits for 2 months up to a year to avoid reducing blood circulation to the skin and further complications.
Blood-thinning meds such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and other health supplements might increase the chances of bleeding after this cosmetic surgery. It is best to stop taking such medications and discuss your medical history, which includes your allergies, dietary habits, etc., with your surgeon.
Now you know that it is possible to get rid of hip dips with the help of a surgical procedure like BBL. It is better to avoid any risks and go for the best plastic surgeon who will not only listen to your concerns but help you achieve your desired body shape.
