When you have a slender or boxy shape, you tend to instinctively avoid clothes designed to show off your curves. Some people may love a skinny look but you may prefer a more curvaceous appearance. You might want to consider contacting a plastic surgery team to learn more about hip implants in Columbus.

Hip implants change your body image and can also change your life. They permanently modify your contours, giving your body the added curves that you desire. A skilled body sculpting surgeon like Dr. Brian Dorner accomplishes this by skillfully placing solid, custom-made silicone implants into the areas just below your hip bones. Schedule a consultation with us to learn how this could benefit you.

Are Hip Implants Right for You?

If your adult body has never developed the curves you desire, you have the option to make a change. When Dr. Brian Dorner, a highly skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon, performs your hip implants in Columbus, he focuses on helping you reach your aesthetic goals. Dr. Dorner and his team offer a variety of surgical and nonsurgical options to help you achieve the total transformation you envision. Hip implants give you these image benefits:

  • Enhanced body contours
  • Recontoured hip dips or depressions
  • Increased hip span or width
  • Improved body proportions
  • Improved hip definition
  • Transgender transformations

Some of our clients choose hip implants to complement their buttocks augmentation. The added curves help provide you with a transformation to an hourglass-shaped body.

Your Consultation and Medical History

Before we schedule your surgery for a hip implant, we spend time with you discussing the procedure. This is your opportunity to meet our surgeon, learn more about the procedure, and ask any questions you may have. We will ask a few questions as well.

We talk with you about your expectations for your hip implant surgery and your ultimate goals regarding your desired image. The information you provide helps us develop a personalized treatment plan. This includes your surgical follow-up visits as confirmation that you are recovering properly.

We also help you consider other surgical and nonsurgical procedures that might get you to your ideal proportions. During your consultation, we ask you to supply details about your medical history, which allows us to assess any health issues that might interfere with your anesthesia, surgery, or recovery.

Your Hip Implant Surgery and Recovery

To minimize scar visibility, Dr. Dorner makes a small incision (about 4 to 5 centimeters) just below your waist where your underwear will cover it. He positions each implant above the muscle, or in some cases, within the muscle fascia. He then closes each incision with sutures once he achieves the appropriate placement.

Typically, Dr. Dorner performs hip implants in Columbus as outpatient surgeries. We administer general anesthesia to ensure your comfort. To make sure you get home safely, you should arrange for transportation from our surgical facility.

Before your hip augmentation, we will talk to you about post-surgery care. This may include:

  • Taking pain medication as prescribed
  • Avoiding sleeping on your sides for at least three weeks
  • Wearing a compression garment for up to six weeks or as prescribed
  • Avoiding strenuous activities and heavy lifting
  • Returning for follow-up visits as recommended

You should arrange for at least two to four weeks of downtime following your hip implant surgery. Optimal recovery often requires six to eight weeks.
