Hip liposuction is a surgical way of removing unwanted fat around the hip area. Hip liposuction is for men and women who struggle to shift unwanted fat from the hips through diet and exercise. Hip liposuction can reduce the size of hips by removing the excess fat.

How do I prepare for Hip Liposuction?

Even though hip liposuction is a straightforward surgical procedure, it is still a surgical procedure. Therefore you must prepare in the same way. You shouldn't consume any alcoholic beverages during the week prior to hip liposuction, and you should stop taking a medication which thins the blood, as this could cause severe blood loss during the hip liposuction surgery. Prior to any liposuction you should talk to your consultant about how to prepare for the hip liposuction.

During Hip Liposuction

Hip lipo is performed under local, or general anesthetic depending on how extreme the liposuction is. Once the area is numb the liposuction surgeon will normally inject the hip area with a formula which will turn the fat into liquid. An incision will then be made for the hollow tube which will vacuum out the liquefied fat. After all the unwanted fat from the hip area is removed a compression garment, i.e a bandage will be applied to the hip to aid the healing process. Because the area has been numbed you cannot drive after hip liposuction surgery.

After Hip Liposuction

Even though all the unwanted fat from the hips has been removed, there will be swelling and bruising which might make you look bigger than you actually are. But once the swelling has gone down then you will see a noticeable difference. With the bruising and swelling will come some discomfort and pain, so you may need to painkillers for the first few days after the hip lipo.

For a full list of side effects from hip liposuction it is best to talk to your hip liposuction consultant. Hip liposuction is a great way of reducing your hip size to make you more in proportion, and slimmer.
