What Are Hip Dips and Why Do I Have Them?

Get the dips out of your hips. Hip dips are the inward curve that occurs below the hips, on each side of the buttocks. Other names for hip dips include violin hips, shelf hips, or, if you want to get anatomical, trochanteric depressions.

What Causes Hip Dips?

There’s a common misconception that hip dips (or their absence) are a sign of your health and fitness levels. In reality, hip dips speak more to your genetics than to your overall health.

The shape of the hips reflects the shape of the pelvis.

Are There Any Special Exercises I Can Do to Get Rid of Hip Dips?

Diet and exercise won’t always eliminate hip dips. Dr. Ryan Stanton recommends all his patients each right and exercise for overall health and an optimized appearance. Still, if you’re genetically predisposed to hip dips, you may need plastic surgery to eliminate them permanently. Losing weight and building muscle can change the shape of your body, but your anatomy will determine your results. Just like chest exercises won’t turn A cup breasts into D cup breasts, exercises for hip dips won’t dramatically change the shape of your hips or buttocks.

Hip implants are one of the most effective options for getting rid of hip dips and creating a full and rounded hip appearance.

How Can I Get Rid of My Hip Dips?

Hip dips do not interfere with the function of the body. They are purely an aesthetic concern. If they do not bother you, you do not need to treat them. However, many women dislike the appearance of the inward curve on their sides and want to create a fuller, rounded hip. Treating hip dips helps many of our patients to feel more confident in the shape and appearance of their bodies.

Treating hip dips with hip implants and buttock implants can create highly desirable, full, and rounded buttocks. When paired with breast augmentation, these procedures can create an hourglass figure.

Tell Me More About Hip Implants

One of the most effective options for treating hip dips is a hip implant. This solid silicone implant is placed under the skin and supportive tissues in the hip area to add shape and volume to the sides of the hips.

Hip implants are permanent medical devices. They will provide shape to the hips as long as they remain in place, often for decades. Hip implants are one of the longest-lasting, most effective solutions for creating a fuller, rounded hip appearance.

Many surgeons are unfamiliar with hip implants and do not regularly perform hip augmentation procedures. Dr. Stanton specializes in body implants and performs hip and buttocks augmentation procedures almost every week. His patients are so delighted by their augmentation results that they’ve crowned him the “Butt King®.”
