Best Hip Replacement Surgery To Minimize Scarring: Top London Bikini Surgeon

Nov 15, 2023

Did you know there’s not just one option for hip replacement surgery? There are several – and they’re all quite different. Prof. Lee at MSK Doctors is an expert on all your options and can walk you through them with no wait-list, and no referral.

When we talk about surgery or medicine, we often talk as if there's only one, best option - but that's not always true.

There are lots of reasons why the best option for someone else, may not be the best option for you.

Maybe you have slightly different anatomy, slightly different issues, or even different priorities.

Regardless of which option you choose though, you should still be able to receive your care from the best experts in the field, every time.

That's why it's exciting to see that MSK Doctors in London is offering both the Bikini and SPAIRE techniques for hip replacement - because what works best for one person, may not be best for all.

They don't just "offer it as an option" though, they have a dedicated hip specialist who's thoroughly trained in both techniques, so they can maximize the benefits that make these advanced surgical strategies so amazing.

While both of these advanced surgical techniques offer several improvements over a traditional total hip replacement, they each focus on a very different issue.

The SPAIRE technique is known primarily for eliminating post-operative mobility restrictions and reducing recovery times, meaning that you can go home right away, and bend any way you want.

The Bikini technique also helps to reduce recovery times, but it mostly focuses on reducing the scar tissue caused by the procedure.

Using either of these advanced techniques allows the surgical team to significantly reduce the trauma caused during surgery, and that can drastically cut your recovery time - but there's more to it than that.

If you choose the SPAIRE technique, you can recover faster with fewer complications, but this surgery was not designed with aesthetics in mind, and it could leave a quite visible scar.

With the Bikini technique, the MSK Doctors team can make an incision along your bikini line, making it easier to conceal after the healing process. While this technique does not guarantee an invisible scar, it can definitely make it a lot less noticeable, especially if it's performed by an experienced specialist.

Speaking of specialists, here's what I suggest, personally: Talk to one first.

It's easy, you can schedule a consultation with the MSK Doctors Bikini and SPAIRE specialist, Prof. Paul Lee, to learn more about your surgical options, and which one might best suit your individual needs. Prof. Lee is the founder of the MSK Doctors clinic, and a double board-certified surgeon with 5 international fellowships, specializing in conditions of the hip and knee - so he's the guy to talk to if you have any questions or concerns.

Here's a slightly more technical explanation, which I admit, I stole from the MSK Doctors website, “Both the SPAIRE and Bikini Hip Replacement techniques are advancements that reflect a patient-centric approach in orthopaedic surgery, focusing on minimizing tissue damage, accelerating recovery, and in the case of the Bikini technique, improving aesthetic outcomes. The choice between the two may depend on various factors, including the specific anatomical, functional, and aesthetic concerns of the patient, as well as the surgeon’s expertise with either technique.”
