Can A Small Buttock Implant Be Used For The Hip Dips?

Q: Dr. Eppley, For hip augmentation surgery for hip dips for fuller looking hips would you be able to use a standard buttock implant small one so I could have curvier hips? Please do let me know thanks

A: The question is not whether you can take a small buttock implant and place it in the hip dips….as you can. The real question whether it would have a smooth look and blend in to not look like there is an implant bump there. That has been my experience in doing so. It seems like the implant has a good shape until the swelling goes down and the soft tissue shrink down  around it and then instead of a dip there is now a bump.
