Hip dips are naturally occurring indentations just below your hips that create dips in your silhouette – for this reason they are sometimes known as ‘violin hips’. HYAcorp filler can be used to address hip dips, filling up the indentations and restoring a smooth, hourglass silhouette.

What Are Hip Dip Fillers?

Hip dip fillers, sometimes called bum filler injections, refers to the non surgical method of reducing hip depressions by using dermal fillers. At the CREO Clinic this involves injecting HYAcorp dermal fillers into the depressions at your hips to add volume and reduce their prominence. HYAcorp fillers are the highest quality dermal fillers available on the market, so you can feel confident in their safety and the results they provide.

What Are Hip Dips?

Hip dips are gentle inward curves or depressions that present just below the hips – between the ilium bone in the upper hip and the hip socket. How prominent your hip dips are will depend on variations in your skeletal structure and muscle mass. 

The larger the gap between the ilium and hip socket, the deeper and more visible your hip dips will be. People with a shorter gap will find their hip dips are less prominent.

What Causes Hip Dips?

Women experience hip dips more frequently due to differences in skeletal structure – women have wider hips than men in order to accommodate childbirth. Genetics plays the biggest role in determining whether or not you develop hip dips, but the ratio of muscle and fat distribution around the body can also affect how pronounced they are. 

Are Hip Dips Normal?

Hip dips are a completely normal and naturally occurring feature of the physique. The depressions in the skin below the hip bone occur because of variations in a gap between two bones – the ilium and the trochanter. Everybody has some variation of gap between these bones, which is why it is not at all unusual to experience hip dips. 

How To Get Rid Of Hip Dips Naturally

Sadly, there is no long-term natural solution to hip dips, but there are some exercises that can build muscle around your hips and help to reduce the appearance of the depressions in the skin. 

Glute bridges, lunges and squats can all strengthen the muscles around the hips and help mask your hip dips, but this muscle growth must be maintained with consistent exercise and a healthy diet, because reduction in muscle volume will cause your hip dips to reappear.

The use of fat transfer to treat hip dips does require surgery, however, the fat used is autologous (i.e. native to the body) and extracted from areas where it is in excess around the body.

How Do Hip Dip Fillers Work?

Hip dip fillers are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that works by adding volume where indents are present in the hips, filling out the depressions, and creating a smooth contour from hips to thighs. HYAcorp fillers are at the forefront of dermal filler technology – cross-linked hyaluronic acid filler of non-animal origin, making it safe and highly effective at contouring and resculpting the body.

HYAcorp filler produces long term enhancements to volume and shape, can be targeted precisely to the hips via a series of injections. 

What Are Hip Dip Fillers Made From?

Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a glycosaminoglycan (GAG) that occurs naturally in the body and works to attract and retain water. Being native to the body means the risk of an allergic reaction to HA is exceptionally low, and its ability to attract water makes it ideal for providing hydration as well as volume and high definition.

The CREO Clinic only uses HYAcorp filler, due to our doctors valuing its high quality and consistent long-term results. This filler is made using cross-linked hyaluronic acid, which means it is harder for the body to break down and will help your results last longer. In general, HYAcorp body filler lasts up to 12 months, after which a ‘top up’ treatment may be required to maintain your hip dip improvements.

Another key advantage of HA as a filler is that its effects can be easily reversed, as a substance called hyaluronidase can be injected to quickly break HA down when needed.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA)-based fillers can be used to increase volume by encouraging production of collagen in the target areas, creating effects that last between 12-18 months. The CREO Clinic does not currently use CaHA-based fillers for hip dips or for any other cosmetic concern – this is because CaHA cannot be dissolved should the need arise. 

Poly-L-lactic Acid (PLLA)

Polylactic acid (PLLA) fillers are injected at target sites to increase volume through increased collagen production. They can add long-term volume to the hips for up to 2 years, but, unfortunately, PLLA fillers such as Sculptra cannot be reversed at this time if complications arise – this is why the CREO Clinic does not use PLLA fillers for its hip dips treatments.

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)

PMMA fillers have the appearance of tiny balls that can be injected into the body to create a long-term enhancement to volume. The results of PMMA fillers such as Bellafill are extremely long lasting (8-10 years) because they do not break down in the body. 

The semi-permanent nature of PMMA microspheres is one of the main reasons that the CREO Clinic does not use them for hip dips filler treatments, but it should also be noted that PMMA fillers leave patients open to higher risks of allergic reactions because they are sourced from bovine animals.

Benefits Of Hip Dip Fillers

Enhanced Body Proportions

One of the most important benefits of hip dips fillers is their ability to add curves to your silhouette and create a highly desirable hourglass figure. The additional volume offered by hip dips fillers boost the appearance of these areas in unison, creating improved body proportions and smoothing out any depressions in the skin. Though hip dip fillers are a more modest enhancement than fat transfer, for many patients, the amount of volume added by butt filler is more than sufficient to achieve your body goals.

Increased Self-Confidence

Enhancing your silhouette with hip dips fillers can often provide a boost to confidence by opening up new clothing options. People who feel conscious of their hip area may avoid clothing that clings to the hips. By reducing your hip dips, you may feel more comfortable wearing skinny jeans, swimwear or any clothes that show the outline of your hips.

Long Lasting Results With Little Downtime

Hip dips filler treatment is a short, nonsurgical procedure that requires very little downtime and offer natural results. This means you can undergo your hip dip treatment whilst maintaining your work and social life, unlike more invasive procedures that can require weeks of recovery. The effects of hip dip filler are long lasting, but may require maintenance treatments after 12 months. It should be noted that the effects of fat transfer are typically longer lasting than hip dip filler.

    How To Prepare For Hip Dips Filler

    Before your treatment at the CREO Clinic, you will have a thorough consultation to determine your cosmetic goals and formulate a treatment plan accordingly. Our Medical Director and experienced body contouring surgeon, Dr. Omar Tillo, will speak with you about your medical history and make assessments of your hip dips.

    Our team advises all patients to take the following preparation before their hip dip fillers treatment:

    • Try to ensure you do not have any demanding social events in the two weeks following your hip dip filler treatment. This is to give your body the best conditions to fully recover.
    • Avoid alcohol or ibuprofen for 48 hours before your hip dips fillers to help keep bruising and swelling to a minimum.

    Hip Dips Filler Procedure Overview

    Initial Consultation

    Your initial consultation will consist of a discussion regarding your hip dips concerns and the results you wish to achieve through the targeted application of dermal fillers. Our team of doctor-led aesthetic specialists will make an assessment of your suitability for hip dips fillers – this is to ensure your safety and to help ensure the treatment is best suited to your aesthetic goals.

    Our team will formulate a bespoke treatment plan and help you understand the kind of results you can expect after your hip dips filler treatment.

    Hip Dips Filler Procedure

    First, your surgeon marks the area that needs to be filled then cleans it using full aseptic protocols. 2-3 tiny holes are made in the skin then the cannula is inserted. To ensure the correct position and depth of the cannula, an ultrasound scan is made – this allows the tip of the cannula to go as deep as possible in the fat without entering further into the muscle than is needed. The fat must be injected between the muscle and a thin layer of tissue called the superficial fascia.

    The injections should not be painful, but you may experience a ‘pinching’ feeling similar to any other injection. Numbing cream or local anaesthetic can be applied to the skin before your treatment, if necessary.

    Recovery & Aftercare Process

    Recovery from dermal fillers is usually short and most patients find themselves able to return to work immediately. You may experience a degree of bruising, bleeding, and/or swelling from the treatment sites.  Bruising can be non-existent (in 50% of patients), mild but resolving in a few days (45% of patients) or severe and lasting for 2-3 weeks (5% of all patients).

    Our team of specialists following a few important after-care instructions to make your recovery as smooth as possible:

    • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours to minimise the risk of bruising/bleeding
    • No exercise or exposure to excessive levels of heat for 48 hours – this will keep swelling risk to a minimum
    • Avoid any excess pressure on the areas around your hips for at least two weeks. Try to sleep on your back as much as possible to avoid putting pressure on your sides.

    When To Expect Results From Hip Dips Filler

    Results of your hip dip filler procedure can be seen immediately after the filling, although it may look and feel lumpy and bumpy at first. Over the week that follows, the filler begins to absorb water and grow in size – the full enhancement is then seen around two weeks after treatment.

    Hip Dips Filler FAQs

    Do hip dip fillers hurt?

    The application of hip dips fillers should not be painful. You may feel a small pinch from the injections – this will be no different to the level of pain you feel when receiving a vaccination or giving blood.

    Will hip dip fillers drastically change my body’s appearance?

    The addition of hip dip filler is often a noticeable change, but the change is likely not to be as drastic as those made using fat transfer. The extent of the volume created by the filler will depend on our aesthetic team’s assessment of your needs and aesthetic goals.

    Are there any risks associated with hip dips filler?

    The most notable risks of dermal fillers for hip dips are bruising, swelling, and redness at the site of your injections. Far more unusual risks are infections, vascular occlusion and nodules, but these are extremely rare and are very unlikely when an experienced Aesthetic Doctor is performing the treatment. The risk of poor outcomes or complications such as vascular occlusion is greatly reduced by the assistance of ultrasound during application.

    How many hip dips filler treatments will I need?

    The majority of patients will only need one session of hip dips filler treatment to achieve their cosmetic goals, but may require a top up session when the body has begun to break down your filler.

    What if I don’t like the results of my hip dips filler?

    Fortunately, hip dip fillers are reversible. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be quickly revised if necessary using <a href="https://creoclinic.com/treatment/hyaluronidase/">hyaluronidase</a>. If complications arise with your fillers, or you change your mind about the shape or volume of your fillers, you can have the filler removed or adjusted.

    Can I get permanent hip dips filler in London?

    A permanent solution to hip dips is a <a href="https://creoclinic.com/treatment/brazilian-butt-lift/">Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)</a>, which is a <a href="https://creoclinic.com/treatment/fat-transfer/">fat transfer</a> procedure that extracts fat from areas where it is in excess and transfers it  to the hips and butt to improve volume and shape. A BBL can smooth out hip dips permanently but is a more invasive treatment than hip dip fillers. Nevertheless, a BBL can still be reversed via <a href="https://creoclinic.com/treatment/liposuction-london/#mobile-widget">liposuction</a>.

    What’s the difference between hip dips filler and traditional dermal fillers?

    There are important differences between hip dip fillers and traditional dermal fillers. The filler used to fill hip dips at the CREO Clinic are HYAcorp – these are one of the highest quality dermal fillers on the market designed with cross-linked hyaluronic acid filler which means its effects are longer lasting. The HYAcorp filler used to hip dips has a higher viscosity than dermal fillers used to adjust facial concerns, this is because a higher viscosity is needed to create extra volume and natural-looking shape.
