Why Can't I Get Rid of Hip Fat?

The fat on the hips is largely controlled by genetics, making it harder to lose. If you’ve done every workout technique to make them slimmer, then it’s about time that you try laser liposuction, also called SmartLipo. Aside from reducing fat deposits, this procedure will also help you achieve tighter and firmer skin and eliminate most of the cellulite.

Dr. Tirgari is experienced in performing laser liposuction, delivering results that improve upon those that can be accomplished with a more traditional liposuction procedure. He also uses the tumescent liposuction technique to lessen the recovery time and minimize the risks and complications after liposuction surgery. To learn more about how Dr. Tirgari can help you, reach out to our San Diego office and speak with a helpful member of our team to set up your initial consultation today.

The Ideal Candidate

Hip liposuction is recommended for clients who are close to their ideal body weight but are having difficulty targeting those frustrating fat deposits that can develop on the hips via exercising or dieting. If you’re obese, have a serious medical condition, or have clotting problems, we might advise that you avoid this procedure due to an increased risk for complications.

Your safety is of utmost importance, so please be sure to disclose your medical history at the time of your consultation. We want to make sure you qualify for this surgery. If you are not deemed a candidate, we can help you by guiding you to a procedure that might be better suited to your lifestyle and your goals.

The Hip Liposuction Procedure

Once you’ve been cleared to undergo the procedure, you can ask one companion to be with you during the day of the surgery. You will be conscious during the whole procedure, but you will be given a sedative to help you feel more relaxed while it is being performed. Our goal is your total comfort, at all times.

Dr. Tirgari will administer the local anesthesia on the areas to be treated through small incisions. Once the area is numb, he will start using the cannula with the laser tip to melt the fat deposits by moving the instrument back and forth under the top layers of your skin. The fatty oil will then be suctioned out of your body.

Any remaining fat will be processed through the body’s natural detoxification system through the liver. The liposuction of the hips surgery is completed in less than an hour, at which time you are able to have someone take you home. Before your procedure, we’ll give you a clear idea of what you can expect to experience.

What to Expect from Your Recovery Period

You may feel some minimal discomfort immediately after your procedure, and Dr. Tirgari can prescribe you some pain medications to help ease any discomfort. Although most of our patients are able to ease any discomfort with over-the-counter pain medicine, we understand that everyone’s tolerance for pain is different, and we are here to serve your needs. You’ll have a mild amount of swelling, which will subside within a few days. To ease swelling, you will be asked to rest, take your meds and wear a post-operative garment, which will also protect the treatment area.

Getting Back to Normal

You can perform your daily tasks easily, but it is advised that you rest for one to two days and refrain from any vigorous physical activities. In the days after your hips liposuction, we will see you on a regular basis and continue to advise you on the post-operative and after care instructions. If you are concerned with maintaining your stunning results, please don’t hesitate to talk to us about healthy lifestyle choices.
