Liposuction to Hips
Prominent hips often referred to as "muffins" can be reduced with liposculpture and you can be back at work in 3 days.
The hips in many women can make the body outline appear quite squarish and in some cases can make it seem as though you have no waist at all. Dresses tend to hang off the top of the hips and they can be much more difficult to hide under clothing than even the large saddlebags on the outer thigh. The so called muffins often bulge over the top of low cut jeans.
In older women liposculpture of the hips are often combined with removing fat from below the bra strap area to improve the waist. This is a difficult area to completely correct as the skin has often been stretched by the bra strap over many years.

Any women with fullness over the hip or any degree of squareness when looking in the mirror or when viewed from behind. If clothes tend to sit over the hips or ride up over this area, then liposculpture will be of help as well.

What support garments are required?
A special compression garment is worn for 3 days after the procedure.
What other areas are treated at the same time?
The waist and abdomen are often treated at the same session to give a balanced overall result and the most significant improvement to the torso, though liposculpture to the hips alone is not uncommonly performed.
