kalca1An aesthetic and attractive hip is the most important supplementary element in body lines and legs seen from behind and the side. An ideally aesthetic hip could be described as a hip that doesn’t protrude from the sides when seen from the front and back, with a mild curve towards outside and upside proportionate to the abdominal curve when seen from the side.

 

What Is Hip Aesthetics? What Are It’s Purposes?

The hip can be reshaped by removing fat excesses, absences and asymmetries through the use of fat-shaping in order to reach that appearance. Hip prosthesis could be used to obtain the desired hip shape in case not enough fat tissue is present. For patients with skin and tissue sagginess, lift operation could be performed in order to remove excessive and saggy tissue in a similar way to abdominal lift. It is important for the patients to take care of their weight and regularly exercise in order for the results obtained by hip aesthetics to be permanent.

Hip prosthesis is made of silicon gel just like breast prosthesis. The operation has similar features with the other prosthesis procedures.

How To Prepare Before The Surgery?

General rules apply for hip prosthesis as well such as cutting or regulating the use of aspirin and other blood diluents at least 1 week before the surgery, not consuming vitamins (such as vitamin e), herbal products (tomato seeds, cherry stalk etc) and herbal teas, not taking any alcohol before 24-48 hours before the surgery, quitting smoking 3 weeks before the surgery and not smoking in the remission period after the surgery.

How Is Hip Prosthesis Operation Performed and How Is The Period After The Surgery?

The body movements are not limited after hip prosthesis procedures except sitting position. The patient could return to normal work life after 10 days. Hip prosthesis operation is not a very painful operation; there could be tension and irritation for the first 48 hours. These could easily be dealt with painkillers. The patients could experience a mild difficulty in sitting after the operation. The patients have to use special support for the first 4 weeks. Heavy exercise, especially running should not be performed until the sixth week. The disappearance of edema and obtaining the final shape of the prosthesis after the operation could take 2-3 months.

How Are Scars In Hip Prosthesis Operation?

Hip prosthesis is placed at the proper place (under the muscle) by making a medium, even small cut, and the cut stays hidden under the underwear. The scares usually take an indistinctive form in time and they are hidden scars. Still, the healing of the wound is specific to the person in question. Very rarely, some patients may experience excessive scar healing (cheloid, hypertrophic scar).

Fat-Shaping

The excesses especially on the knee, ankle, inner thigh, basin region of the legs create a disproportioned appearance in the leg between the regions below and above the knee. These problems are resolved by liposuction and fat-graft procedures in which fat masses taken from the thick regions are injected to the thin regions. The procedure takes about 1-1.5 hours and it is performed under general or local anesthesia. The patient could return to work in 3-5 days although this period depends on the performed procedure.

Leg Prosthesis (Calf Prosthesis)

A deformity arises when the leg tissue is small in size and bandy in the region under the knee. There are implants (leg prosthesis) specifically designed for the calf of the leg today. Bowleg appearance could be removed by using these implants. In some cases, it could be necessary to combine liposuction and fat-graft together with leg prosthesis. This way, satisfaction of the person complaining of the appearance of his/her legs is provided.

Under general anesthesia, the folding area on the back of the knee of the patient is used to enter under the skin and the leg prosthesis is implanted at the proper location. The procedure takes about 1 hour. The patient may be dismissed from the hospital on the same day as the operation after 6-8 hours but sometimes he/she could stay in the hospital or 1 night.

Leg Lift

Weight gains and losses and increasing age causes the tissues in the inner legs to sag and loosen. The discomforts arising out of the sagging tissues become more prominent especially while walking. During leg lift operation, this sagginess and loosened tissue are removed and a more regular and tight appearance is obtained. Leg lift operation is performed under general anesthesia. The duration of the operation is about 1-2 hours. One night of stay in the hospital is enough. Operation is performed through a cut made to stay under the underwear, from inguinal region to posterior curve. The patient is able to return to normal work life after 7 days although this period depends on the performed procedure.

Again, patients have to use medium compression socks or special supports for 4 weeks after fat-shaping procedures and leg prosthesis under the knee. Edema and bruises could stay for a long period especially after fat-shaping procedure performed on the ankle below the knee. It is advised that patients don’t stay standing up as much as possible during the first weeks and hold their legs high. The movements should be limited during the first weeks after leg prosthesis procedure as well. Sports activities are allowed after the third week with the exception of running. All kind of activities are allowed after the sixth week. LPG, radio frequency and lymphatic drainage massages are beneficial starting from second week for faster shaping of the legs after the surgery. The most important problem that could arise after leg aesthetics operations is thrombolysis in venous blood vessels and dysfunction in lungs although this condition is very rare. The most common problem, on the other hand, is the irregularity and fluctuations forming at the liposuction areas. Problems such as noticeable prosthesis, asymmetries and capsule development could be encountered as these are common to all prosthesis operations. The risk of these problems could be minimized by the use of a good planning.
