Tighten, Contour, & Lift

As we age, maintaining a toned lower back and abdomen can seem nearly impossible. When all the diet and exercise just won’t yield results, consider a hip lift at The Piazza Center in Austin, Texas. Board-certified surgeon Dr. Rocco Piazza can contour the lower torso into a sleek, attractive silhouette.

What Exactly Is A Hip Lift?

This procedure removes excess skin and fat from the hips and upper thighs, and lifts and tightens the remaining muscle and skin tissue to create a more sculpted, fit appearance that will make you look more youthful and attractive. 

A hip lift is commonly performed on those who have lost significant weight, or who have excess skin in the hip and buttock area due to aging or genetics. A hip lift not only sculpts the hips, lower back, and thighs, it can create thigh gaps and correct ‘hip dips.’

Is A Hip Lift Right For Me?

The best way to learn if a hip lift can remedy your aesthetic concerns is to have an in-depth consultation with one of our board-certified surgeons. During this dedicated time, your surgeon will listen with empathy and patience as you describe your body goals, and any insecurities. After that, a comprehensive review of your medical history is done, along with a physical exam.

If your surgeon discerns that a hip lift is indeed right for you, they will discuss the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have. No question is too big or too small; your surgeon’s goal is to make sure you can make a confident and informed decision.

Common Reasons To Pursue A Hip Lift

Every patient has a unique body that comes with its own particular needs. However, there are some common experiences among patients who explore hip lifts. Some of them are listed below. Each patient should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations.

  • Excess fat in hips, buttocks, and thighs
  • Genetically predisposed to uncommonly large hips, thighs, or buttocks
  • Sagging or drooping skin or muscles in the hip, thigh, buttocks
  • Age has caused a decline in skin elasticity and muscle strength

Recovery From A Hip Lift

Patients are typically advised to plan for 1-2 weeks off of work and social activities to properly rest and start the recovery journey. With every surgery, bruising and swelling are normal and should subside over the next few weeks. Discomfort is usually managed by prescription pain medication for the first few days, and over-the-counter medications after. 

A High-Touch Recovery Experience

The Piazza Center is known for its high-touch recovery experience. Piazza Center doctors spend much more time with post-op patients than the average plastic surgeon, carefully tracking their recovery and results to make sure everything goes smoothly. Our surgeons conduct many more follow-ups too, even checking in long after healing has finished to ensure patients are pleased with their new hips.

A Premium Surgical Experience

The Piazza Center performs hip lifts in the surgical suites at the exclusive INSPIRE Surgical Centre in Austin, Texas. INSPIRE was deliberately designed to maintain the safety, privacy, and comfort of every patient.
