How are the hips classified: The hips consist of muscle, fat, bones and the skin The shape and size is determined by genetics, yet the volume is determined by the fat cell amount and it’s even distribution is an important factor, along with the skin quality. The hip is divided into 3 segments
* Upper hip: The amount of fat in this part is crucial as it defines the hip curve. In cases needed, fat can be removed or added to ensure a correct shape and size to suit the patient’s body structure. If needed, silicone implants can be added to enhance its shape.
* Middle hip: If the central part of the hip is concave, a small injection of fat cells can easily correct this appearance.
* Lower hip: Excess fat in this area gives the appearance of a sagging bottom, or looking boxy. A simple liposuction procedure can be combined with excess skin removal if needed to correct this. The correction will not be apparent immediately due to swelling, but the results will show in time.

Silicone implants: In cases when the patient does not have enough fat cells to be harvested, a silicone implant may be inserted, either under the muscle or skin tissue, this will be determined after the consultation. The size is to be determined depending on the patient’s structural frame.
Sagging may occur with age or due to genetics and there are many methods to correct this occurrence. The method is to be selected based on the skin quality of the patient and the frame of the hips.In cases where needed, excess skin may be removed.
