The hips are one of the most difficult areas of the body to lose weight, and many women tend to retain excess fat in this area. This can often make clothing look awkward and ill fitting, causing low self-esteem.

Hip liposuction provides a very effective solution, helping patients to lose a significant amount of inches and achieve beautifully natural-looking results. The hips respond very well to liposuction, and are in fact one of the most successful areas when it comes to showing visible improvement after the procedure.

Hip Liposuction Candidates

If you’re interested in a Richmond hip liposuction treatment, you may be an ideal candidate. The best candidates for hip liposuction are those who are near their ideal weight, but who are having difficulty getting rid of the excess fat around their hips.

Those who are considering hip liposuction should understand that it is not a substitute for diet and exercise, nor is it a cure for cellulite. Maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise are required to help keep liposuction results at their optimal appearance.

Good candidates for hip liposuction are those who:

  • Are near their goal weight but have excess fat in their hips
  • Have good skin elasticity
  • Have good physical, mental, and emotional health
  • Do not have any active diseases
  • Have realistic expectations about what hip liposuction can achieve
