From a  post by u/sopcol:


Korean Biomedical Review: ‘Pelvic beauty’ becomes achievable, Harvard professor says

Biomedical Review/by Constance Williams  10/2018

Gender Analysis: A new plastic surgery technique for hip widening

Keypoints:

Implants are used to extend the hips.
Launches for clinical use in March.
Currently a large waiting list to be the first patiant.
Surgery takes less than an hour, can be discharged in after 2 hours and can walk and run immediatly after, but no swimming or baths for a week
The cost for the implant is $4,500, and hospital fee is $10,000, including anesthesia and other supplies.
From the Korean Biomedical Review article:

To widen the pelvic bone, Wu started the process with a 3D printer to create the “pelvic osteoplasty” – the first skeletal aesthetic technique used to create a customized hourglass figure. Small incisions will be made on the lower back (posterior superior iliac spine) to hide the scars with clothes, undermining the muscles to create a tunnel for the implant. The implants will be drilled with 3.5-mm cancellous screw fixations onto the surface of the iliac crest- the curved ridge at the top of the pelvic bone.

“We call this the Minimal Invasive Plate Osteosynthesis (MIPO) to extend the pelvic width,” Wu said. “The only incision we must be careful is to avoid the superior cluneal nerves.”

Asked if the procedure is available to the public at the moment, Wu confirmed that it is still experimental. “Our commercialized implant is almost ready for the clinical use, and the review of the regulations is done. We will officially launch the procedure next March, and we have a waiting list for a lot of patients willing to be the first subject,” he said.

Wu noted that one of the good indications for this technique is the male-to-female transgender who have the desire to have a female figure, but his ideal target market is for anyone who wants an ideal hip/waist ratio.

The procedure takes less than an hour under general anesthesia, and patients can be discharged after a few hours. Side effects of this surgery would be minor common surgical complications, including pain, infection, loosing of the implant and minimal decrease of the sensation of surgical site which usually recovers. The cost for the implant is $4,500, and hospital fee is $10,000, including anesthesia and other supplies.

“After surgery, you can immediately walk, or even run,” Wu said. “But we advise staying away from the water by avoiding swimming or taking baths for a week. Patients don’t even need to worry about pregnancy affected by the procedure.”

For real?? Who on earth would want to do that? Hrt does a good job adding to your hips. I think some procedures are necessary for some transwomen but I think they are taking it a little too far.

Hi Julia,

I think what you're saying about HRT doing a good job on your hips is more likely with woman who start HRT young like you.  I don't believe the bones after the age of 25 respond to HRT.  I'm guessing your bone structure has been altered by HRT.   Granted fat distribution alone will help many transgender women but many seem unsatisfied by their hips.

I can see why someone would try this.  It sounds way safer than putting silicone in your butt.

Take care,
Paige :)

Oh wow, I'm gonna put this on my list of crazy-ass surgeries, along with shoulder reductions. I understand body dysphoria, but mounting hunks of metal of the outer edges of your hips seems a little insane.

This is not medical advice. Always consult your doctor.

Tempting, but looks like this is going to make airports even more of a hassle.

Heck, they keep this up and all you'll have to do is lay on a 3D printer while the tech erases what you original had and programs a rebuild.

Think I'll wait for an alien abduction.  Heard there's someone on this site from the planet Pandora :)

Or God forbid if I need a hip replacement I'll ask for the Trans Model :)

I have a titanium hip replacement which is screwed in place. I had arthritis so bad the femur was almost about to grind through the hip bone. I needed it to be able to walk again. It works just fine.

Exactly!   However with that said.   I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.   No need becoming a guinea pig for dr. Frankenstein.   Wait for 1,000 successful stories and 5 years of testing and then maybe.

That sounds like an incredible recovery time. Even minor implants seem to be more debilitating, and this is bonescrew surgery? I don't quite believe you could run after being discharged, lol. It wouldn't be advisable, surely.

Honestly, doesn't sound that extreme. Plenty of women, cis and trans, go for stuff like butt implants. The only real difference here is that its mounted so its probably far less complications with sliding around or potential injuries. Certainly many people have grafts. I mean, also a lot of us go in to have our face peeled back and bones ground down as a standard procedure, this seems lightweight in comparison.

Provided that the implants are titanium, osseointegration should eventually occur. This means that if all goes well they will in effect fuse to the bone. I expect that the screws are there just to ensure there is no movement until this happens.

I really like Korea, and admire the courage with which they explore the bounds of cosmetic and other medicine. That said, I myself would not want to undergo this procedure. Once proven, it may be a boon for people whose hip width really bothers them, but I personally hate even the thought of having anything artificial implanted into me.

(Modified for grammar.)

Besides that, the number of metal detector you can set off at security check points.

As long as I don't get rheumatism, due to having a metal object in my body, like I hear some coworkers agonize when the weather shifts to more humid climates.

I have been through several metal detectors at airports since getting my titanium hip implant five years ago.

Yes, I do set off the metal detectors, but I just tell the security people that I have a hip implant and they pat me down and I am good to go.

Not any problem at all.

Medically speaking, this looks to be safe for the long term.  Let's hope the trials and success rates go really well!   :)

     Bone only accepts Titanium as a permanent implant, it even tries to grow around it and absorb it! Everything else will loosen up much faster.
