Some women complain about unsightly dents that have appeared in their hip area. What women often seek in the form of hip appearance is a smooth and shapely look. Dents don't provide that attractive look and can also cause embarrassment and lowered self esteem issues.
The bumpy indentations can make a person feel self conscious and to begin to avoid activities, such as swimming, where this area will be exposed. There are a few different types and causes of skin indentations, some more pronounced and noticeable than others.
At times, hip indentations might have resulted from a physical reaction to some sort of prescription drug injection, such as allergy medication. Injections are often administered in the hip or buttocks area. If this is your case, you may want to check with your physician who administered it to find out how long it will take to heal.
Another type of uneven skin surface is due to cellulite. Cellulite is basically fat. The uneven appearance is caused by the excess fatty tissue (also called adipose tissue), which is protruding through the connector tissue directly below the skin's surface. It is squishing up through the honeycomb type of connectors which end up giving a bumpy look of tiny indentations.
This is often hereditary and most often appears in the hip, thigh and butt area. Cellulite is difficult to get rid of once it appears, though a healthy low fat diet abundant in highly nutritious components and a strength building exercise routine will help to minimize it. The best way to deal with cellulite is to stay in good shape before it develops. Prevention is the key.
Another explanation for the appearance of indentations would be because of irregular fatty deposits in the area. These bulging areas protrude and cause the surrounding areas to appear caved in and unnatural. Cosmetic surgery can be of help in this case. You might want to make an appointment for a consultation with a reputable plastic surgeon to discuss a procedure called liposuction.
Liposuction is a surgical process where the plastic surgeon inserts a narrow tube called a "cannula" into the excess fatty deposits in your body via one or more incisions. The fat is melted into a liquid consistency that is more easily removable and is then suctioned away through a vacuuming device. In liposuction, the surgeon is able to sculpt the area into a smooth and shapely look, as desired.
