The Manhattan, NY plastic surgeon routinely performs fat transfer to the hips plastic surgery. Fat transfer to the hips, also known as a “hip flip”, is a plastic surgery commonly performed by our board certified plastic surgeon of the Body Sculpting Center of NYC. Hip flips are most common among young and middle-aged women who desire a natural-looking “hourglass” body shape. This can be achieved through the use of donor fat from a problem area (such as the thighs and abdomen) instead of implants. The amount of fat transferred to the hips depends on the amount of fat the patient has to transfer and the patient’s aesthetic goals.
I had a great experience with Dr. DelMauro. He is extremely thorough and pays attention to details. He is an excellent physician and surgeon and take a lot of pride in his work.
I mostly appreciate the fact that he talks to and listens to his patients. ~ RealSelf
Women frequently seek hip flip surgery to create a more curvy silhouette, a more defined midsection, and a more fit and feminine appearance. However, this procedure isn’t limited to women only. Many men feel insecure about their naturally-occurring “hip dips” (aka, the depressions or dimples on the sides of the hips and buttocks) and desire a more filled out look. Hip flip surgery aims to naturally reduce or diminish hip dips using a patient’s own body fat. Our board certified aesthetic plastic surgeon and his highly trained team use the latest in fat transfer techniques to deliver beautiful results to patients. Our top rated plastic surgeon at the Body Sculpting Center of NYC uses the latest in liposuction and fat transfer technology to gently remove unwanted fat cells from one (or more) area(s) of the body and enhance other areas (where volume is lacking) with those very same fat cells, creating symmetrical, natural-looking aesthetic results.
Where can fat be removed from? At the Body Sculpting Center of NYC, we tell our patients that any area with excess fat can be suctioned and harvested. Most commonly patients request:
- Stomach (belly)
- Inner thighs and Outer thighs (saddlebags and banana rolls)
- Flanks (love handles)
- Lower back (muffin top)
- Arms (batwings)
- Submental (double chin)
Your initial hip flip consultation consists of talking with the plastic surgeon about your post-treatment aesthetic goals. A medical exam is performed to determine your eligibility. He will explain the procedure in full, and you will have the opportunity to speak with your Manhattan plastic surgeon about any questions or concerns you may have regarding fat transfer to the hips. Individuals who are healthy and desire to reduce fat in one (or more) area(s) and transfer it to their hips (and possibly buttocks) are candidates for a hip flip procedure with our New York plastic surgeon. During the procedure, our New York plastic surgeon extracts fat out of a problem area (commonly the stomach, waist, back, or inner thighs) through a small incision using liposuction. The donor fat is purified and then injected into the hips to create a smoother transition between the waist, buttocks, hips, and thighs. Because the hip flip procedure involves removing excess fat from one area (or more) and re-injecting that same fat into an area with inadequate fat, patients can treat two (or more) of their problems areas at the same time!
