Violin hips, hip dips, BBL, Lipomodelling, Fat Grafts, hyperdilute Radiesse, Sculptra, Lanluma
While an hourglass shape of the female waist line has always been a marker of beauty, there are normal variation of the fat distribution around the hips and some women have a particularly hollow region around the trochanter (a deep part of your hip bone) this is described as the hip dip.
The hip dip disturbs the streamlined, half-circle profile that curves out at the hip then curving back to the thighs, due to the strong attachment of the skin to the trochanteric area.
There are multiple options for patients desiring to reduce the hip dips from using your own fat cells to lift up this area, or to use Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal fillers like Hyacorp to fill this area. The use of fillers like Radiesse, Sculptra or Lanluma is also described for this area; finally Silicone implants have also been designed for this area, but need to be inserted under general anesthesia, while all the other options can be offered under local anesthesia.
The best treatment is Lipomodelling with fat transfer.
