Will Hip Implants Be Successful If I Gain Weight?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I  plan on gaining weight as I’m not very comfortable with my current weight, I think I’m too skinny. So if i gain weight for the hip implant surgery id maintain that weight and then some probably, i don’t plan on staying this weight or getting any skinnier. Do you think hip implants are good idea of I gain weight?

A:I think even with any weight gain it will never be enough to significantly reduce your risk of hip implant complications.
