London Bikini Hip Replacement Surgery With Minimal Scarring: Fast Appointments

Mar 27, 2024

Imagine getting a total hip replacement – and having no visible scarring. It sounds imaginary – but at MSK Doctors (0330 001 0048), they just call it the Bikini technique. Get back on your feet, fast, and without the scarring.

Did you ever hear the one about the lawyer who just woke up after surgery? He asked why all the blinds were shut, and the nurse replied, "There's a fire across the street, and we didn't want you to think the operation failed." I know, I know - it's lazy picking on lawyers, they're such easy targets, but I needed a quick joke to lead into today's topic, which is how to get a total hip replacement, without the slow and painful recovery process, or visible scarring.

Maybe you've heard of it before? I want to talk about something called the Bikini technique. If you're already aware of it and know all the benefits - then you can skip right ahead and book an appointment with a top London specialist, for consultation, diagnosis, or even treatment.

If you still want to know all the details, and how this technique is so improved, then stick around for a minute and I'll fill you in, fast.

Bikini Benefits, Briefly

In recent years, there have been a lot of improvements in the field of medicine, but one of my favourites is a total rethink of how we do total hip replacements.

In short - instead of doing a lot of damage while getting your new hip installed, these new techniques eliminate the worst of the surgical trauma, and make healing a breeze.

It works a little like this. Imagine your hip, and all the muscles, tendons, and blood vessels around it. There's a lot going on in there.

Traditionally, a surgeon would cut many of those muscles, tendons, and other important body parts, to get your hip installed... but what if they didn't?

To oversimplify, that's how the Bikini technique works - you get the same results, a brand new hip, without all the surgical trauma. That leads to a whole host of benefits, like faster recovery, less post-op pain, and a reduced risk of dislocations.

Scarring, It's Up To You

What if, hear me out - we could eliminate your visible scarring?

That's what the Bikini technique is all about - it's even why it's called the Bikini technique.

Unlike similar procedures, it's not some confusing acronym, the surgery got its name from how it lets the surgeon hide your scar, inside your bikini line.

Of course, it's not magic, it can't make the scarring disappear forever - but with a skilled surgeon, they can make it next to invisible. To do this, they just make the incision in such a way that the resulting scar hides neatly in your hip crease - and as an added bonus, it makes the healing faster.

How much faster?

I don't want to make any promises, but I can tell you what's "normal" after the Bikini procedure.

Most patients can go home right away, within 24 hours, with less pain, fewer mobility restrictions, and certainly less scarring than a traditional hip replacement.

With all the surgical trauma reduced, you should heal up quite fast, and be back to your daily activities in no time.

Just remember, if reducing your scarring is important to you - make sure that you get a surgeon experienced with this specific technique, like Prof. Paul Lee from MSK Doctors.

That's because while it's undeniably effective, this technique is still new - and of course, you'll always get the best results with someone who's already an expert.

As the full surgeon's report explains, “The Bikini Hip Replacement utilizes a minimally invasive anterior approach. The incision is made along the bikini line, thus earning its name. Unlike traditional anterior approaches, the Bikini incision avoids musculotendinous section, which helps in reducing the recovery time and the risk of dislocation of the prosthesis​.”

You don't need to be a top surgeon to know that faster recovery, less surgical trauma, less downtime, less scarring, and a reduced risk of dislocations are all good things.
