Fat Transfer to Hips....

Fat Transfer to Hips....

Postby highcheekbones » Tue Apr 03, 2012 7:18 pm

Hello Ladies,

I really want to get the fat transferred from my abdomen and flanks and into my hips, to widen them. I don't actually want my butt to be larger but I do want wider hips. It's really important for me to find a surgeon that is highly skilled at this procedure. I would really like to get it done close to home (I live in Boston, MA), but I don't know if there are surgeons in my area that are highly skilled in this procedure.

I was looking at Dr. Ricardo Rodriguez in Baltimore, MD. He seems to be very skilled in this procedure: http://www.cosmeticsurg.net/blog/2007/06/26/solving-the-problem-of-narrow-hips-injecting-fat-into-the-hips/. But he's also very expensive.

I know the doctors in Mexico are doing this for a lot less. I'm just so apprehensive about leaving the country to do this. Am I crazy? Do you think I should get over it and go to Mexico to get this done if price is an issue?

Personal decision. I decided not to go to Mx. However, I live in FL where there are a lot of skilled PS for only a bit more than Mx prices. I know the BEST in your area is Markmann, but he is going to run you at least a good $15k. At least. Weigh your options. A lot of women go to Mx here, so I'm sure you would be able to find a travel buddy if that's what you are concerned about. They also have recovery houses which are designed to take care of ppl who go there for cosmetic sx. Good luck.

Well since you put it like that, if money is a factor you're crazy if you don't go to Mexico or DR...

Thanks for your response NinaBonita. I will definitely weigh my options. Getting a travel buddy sounds like a good idea though. Can you name any of those PS in Florida?

Lol, I feel you girl. In Fla Dr. Salama is great! That's Ninabonita's doc, there's also Dr. Salzhauer you can search Google for the both of them. Idk many US docs but if I did I probably wouldn't even bother because of the price and just in my opinion MX docs do a lot better so that along with the price is a plus you can't beat that. Also there's a Dr. Jimmerson in Atlanta and Yoho in Cali, those 4 are the best US docs I know of. I heard of Markman but idk why I thought he retired LOL. Well take your time and keep us posted.

Dr. Salama is my doc. He's amazing, he is running i think $6500 now. Id hop on him quick tho, bc his prices are going high fast bc he is so good. It has went up twice since i booked already. Look into also Dr. Azurin and Dr. pazmino. Dr. Ortega is at bal harbour ps and is great. . .but he runs starting 9.5k. Mendietta gives great hips, but at a "special" of 11k. Dr sakzhauer doesnt do bbls anymore unless u already scheduled a consult, u will see dr ortega. They are all in miami. There is also a Dr....Desi? Out of Jacksonville

@LELL ur thinking of dr. Roberts out of SC. He retired. He was the best. Markmann is def still practicing....wish i could afford him!

Wow Salz stopped doing bbls?? Yeah Dr. Roberts, I can't keep up with all these docs names I knew one of them retired LOL I wonder why Salz stopped tho, Nina do you know? Highcheecks there's all your info right there, and I forgot about.mandietta he's another good one, I haven't seen the others but Nina knows good work so you should check on them and let us know who you decide on.

I had fat grafting to my hips in January and they've turned out great! I went from having no shape to an hourglass. My dr was dr campos. I have seen a few of his patients who have had FG to the hips and his work in that area is very impressive. I would recommend him x

I have worked as a plastic surgery consultant for 5 years and I share with ladies that fat transfer to the hips is just as much work if not more as transferring fat to the buttocks. It involves lipo of the fatty areas, separating the fat and injecting it into the hips...on top of the fact the hip area is very fibrous, which makes it a tougher area to inject fat into and the hips area is tighter than the buttock area...meaning the skin could press down on the fat that has been injected and you might not get the look you envisioned. :cry:

Fat transfer to the hip is a great complimentary surgery with fat grafting to the buttocks...however fat grafting to the hips alone may not be worth your investment for the reasons stated above. Be sure to ask your surgeon his/her thoughts on this issue.

...also, lipo of the lovehandle area may increase your waist to hip ratio...making you look hippier. :D

Check out my book http://www.amazon.com/Answers-Common-Qu ... 780&sr=1-2. It provides ANSWERS to the TOP 25 questions I have been ask over the last 5 years about fat transfer to the buttocks. Please share with me if it helps.

Wow UKDolly, do you mind if I ask you how much your procedure cost you, including your travel expenses? I'll PM you if you prefer.

Thanks beautyconsultant. I understand what you're saying....that's why it's so important for me to get a PS that is highly skilled in this procedure. I was also thinking that lipo of my abdomen and flanks would be a big improvement alone. But I still want my wider hips!!! Lol. :mrgreen:
