Hip Implants in Houston, TX
If your figure tends to be thin and angular, and you long to see some feminine curves, a cosmetic hip implant procedure may be just the solution you seek. Cosmetic hip implants can add sensuous curves to your figure where nature gave you only flat, straight lines.
For residents of Houston, Bellaire, West University Center, Sugar Land, and surrounding communities in the greater Houston area, cosmetic hip implants, along with other advanced cosmetic procedures, are provided at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa by Dr. Olga Bachilo, one of Houston’s most trusted and best plastic surgeons.
What are Hip Implants Used For?
Hip implants are used in reconstructive surgeries to replace any area of the hip or pelvis that has been damaged or injured. In cosmetic procedures, hip implants are used to enhance the curve of the hip by adding padding over the natural hipbone.
What Are Hip Implants Made out Of?
Typically, most hip implants are made out of solid silicone gel, molded into a long slice that can be easily positioned over the natural hip bone in order to add padding and enhance the curve of the hip.
What Results Can I Expect From a Hip Implant Procedure?
A cosmetic hip implant will produce a rounder, more curved silhouette in the hip, depending on the size and shape of implant that you and your surgeon decide on. Dr. Bachilo can help you pick the right implant to give you the most natural-looking enhancement for your natural body type.
How Long Do Results Last?
Most silicone hip implants are designed to last a lifetime. If, after some years, your body has changed and your hip implants don’t look as good as they did when you first got them, you may consider a revision procedure to replace the implants with new ones. However, if you continue to feel satisfied with the way your hip implants fit and look, there is no reason why you cannot enjoy them for the rest of your life.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Hip Implant Procedure?
Candidates must be healthy adults over age 21 and preferably they should also be non-smokers. Ideally, a cosmetic hip implant is most suited to women who have very angular figures and whose hips are extremely narrow, making their body look imbalanced and detracting from the fit of certain garments. If you have a naturally boyish shape, with hips that are basically nonexistent, you may be an excellent candidate for a cosmetic hip implant.
How Long Does Recovery Take?
Recovery after a hip implant may take about one to two weeks, although it may be uncomfortable to sit for long periods, or to perform certain activities, such as climbing stairs, for several weeks following the procedure. Most discomfort can be easily managed with pain medication and ice packs, and the majority of patients are able to return to office work and light daily activities about one or two weeks after surgery. Full recovery may take as long as three to four months, during which the swelling from the procedure gradually subsides naturally.

Can a Hip Implant Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Yes, our patients at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa frequently choose to have several cosmetic procedures performed during a single session, in order to save time and money, as well as reducing exposure to anesthesia, and having to recover only once from various surgeries. By combining your hip implant procedure with another procedure, such as breast implants, gluteal augmentation, or a tummy tuck, you can achieve a more comprehensive makeover and be even happier with your new appearance.
What if I Change My Mind?
If at any point you desire to have your hip implants removed or replaced, you may undergo a revision surgery to achieve this. In some cases, a patient may choose to have their hip implants replaced with a fat transfer or fat grafting procedure that uses fat from their own body.
