What is hip liposuction?
Hips liposuction is a gentle procedure that can precisely target and remove localized fat deposits to contour your figure.
Since this type of fat often simply doesn’t always respond well to exercise and diet, liposuction is a proven and safe method to get the shapely curves you want.
How does hip liposuction work?
The first step in a liposuction procedure is to make a few tiny incisions. These small, fast-healing incisions are all you need to get genuinely excellent results. Next, a small cannula (powered straw) is inserted, and a vacuum is used to suction out the fat deposits.
It’s also important to note that at Denver, we do not use general anesthesia due to its increased dangers. Instead, we employ the Awake Lipo method, where you are kept entirely comfortable using only local anesthesia and mild sedation.

Who is the suitable candidate for hip liposuction?

- You’re in good health
- You’re at or close to your ideal weight
- Your skin has good elasticity to help it bounce back after liposuction
- You have realistic expectations of the results you can expect to see when removing unwanted fat
What happens on the day of your surgery?
You have come in having organized a lift to take you home.
You will be meeting with your surgeon to review your pre-op tests, discuss the procedure, and answer any last-minute questions you may have.
The cosmetic surgeon might draw on your body the areas on which he will perform lipo
Tumescent liposuction does not require general anesthesia, which allows you to talk to your surgeon during the whole procedure.
You receive a mild oral sedative to make you relax.
The surgeon injects a saline solution of lidocaine as the local anesthetic, sodium bicarbonate, and epinephrine to minimize bleeding through small incisions. The area becomes completely numb within minutes.
The doctor will then use a cannula (sort of a powered straw) to access the fat deposits:
If you choose to have a fat transfer to other areas like the popular Brazilian butt lift, the fat cells will be extracted, cleaned, and immediately reinjected to increase their survival chance.
If you do not avail yourself of a fat transfer, the cannula is equipped with a laser fiber that will liquefy the fat. The fatty tissue will be sucked out. The body will expel the remaining dead tissue over time. The surgeon can utilize the SmartLipo Triplex laser during the surgery so he can achieve superior skin tightening. The body will create new collagen, and the skin will tighten a few weeks after the surgery.
As part of the surgery, the doctor may choose to perform body contouring, so the results look natural without bumps. These liposuction techniques are different for men and women. Men may go for six-pack abdominal muscles, and women prefer rounder and fitting curves. Body Sculpting is an art form.
After your surgery, you will receive a follow-up appointment and contact info.
Make sure you have a ride home.
A few days later, you will have a post-op check-up to see your progress.
