Can I Get Big Hip Implants To Look Like Kylie Jenner?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in hip silicone augmentation as I have no fat and my hips are kind of narrow I would say. What is the largest hip implant you have/can make for me and what is the price? I want big hips like Kylie Jenner. Do you do silicone injections maybe? Thank you
A: Thank you for your inquiry. I do not do silicone injections as they are fraught with potential problems and silicone oil is not an FDA-approved material for any form of body augmentation. I also do not do ‘big’ hip implants as that is just a complication waiting to happen. Hip implants are placed on top the muscle fascia and as a result have a higher incidence of complications than other body implants. Thus it is best to have only moderately sized implant to lower the risk of potential problems. A good concept to remember in that regard is ‘it is better to have 50% of the result you want with no complications than 100% of the result you want with complications’.
