A 40-year-old member asked:

Can plastic surgery make hip bones smaller?

No: But liposuction can alter the soft tissue in this area.
Dr. Gregory Surfield
Plastic Surgery 20 years experience
No: It won't change the underlying bones but the fat overlying the hips can be treated with liposuction.
Dr. Thomas Fiala
Plastic Surgery 33 years experience
Making hips smaller: No, we can not change the structure of your bony pelvis or leg bones. All we can do is remove overlying fat (with liposuction), or perhaps tighten up loose skin (with a surgical thigh lift operation).
Dr. Daniel Careaga
Plastic Surgery 18 years experience
Not the bones: Only the fat overlying tem in your hips... That is commonly reduced through liposuction.
