Frequently Asked Questions
Will A BBL Fix Hip Dips?
Yes, in many cases, Dr. Jonov can address the hip dips during a Brazilian butt lift surgery. Augmenting the buttocks can also further improve the contours of the body and improve the appearance of the hip and butt area.
Are There At-Home Ways To Get Rid Of Hip Dips?
Technically, there are some ways to potentially influence the look of your hip dips from home. Usually, this includes building muscle in the area through exercise. However, this is unlikely to make a significant difference that most patients want to see. It rarely—if ever—fully gets rid of hip dips.
This is especially true since hip dips often form due to our bone structure and not our fat or muscle composition. These structures can simply accentuate the existing dip. Using fat to fill this in can disguise the natural anatomy instead of trying to change it completely.
Can I Use Someone Else’s Fat?
No, fat grafting procedures of any kind are safest and only performed when using the patient’s own fat. Unlike your fat, your body can reject the fat which leads to major problems. If a patient is too thin for liposuction, Sculptra is the best alternative. While it does still carry a rejection risk, it is much less than someone else’s fat.
Is It Permanent?
Once healed, the transferred fat will have created a healthy blood supply and will act like all other fat on your body. Thus, you can technically lose it or gain more with major weight fluctuations. However, if you maintain a relatively stable weight, you can expect your results to remain permanent.
