What is Thigh Liposuction?
Many individuals have a tough time getting rid of excess fat deposits that form on their thighs and refuse to leave despite dieting and exercising. Liposuction is a procedure that can remove stubborn thigh fat, create that much-coveted “gap” between the thighs and help achieve shapely more youthful-looking legs.
What Are the Benefits of Thigh Liposuction?
- Removal of “saddlebags”;
- Creation of thigh gap so no more rubbing together/chaffing;
- Smoother, shapelier legs;
- Smaller thighs will help clothing fit better.
Who Is a Candidate for Thigh Liposuction?
The best results from thigh liposuction are achieved by patients who:
- Are in good overall health;
- Are close to their ideal body weight;
- People with firm, elastic skin, and good muscle tone;
- Have adequate elasticity in their thighs;
- Do not have serious medical conditions.
Thigh Liposuction for Men
Women traditionally tend to store and carry fat in their thighs more than men but men are also beginning to recognize the benefits of thigh liposuction. As men age, some develop fat deposits in their thighs despite regular workouts and a healthy diet. Because most men generally do not have issues in this area, these men can be more sensitive to this imperfection and it can affect their self-esteem and confidence levels. Thigh liposuction offers them a fairly quick and minimally invasive option to address this unwanted fat.
What Should I Expect from My Thigh Liposuction?
Thigh liposuction is normally performed using local anesthesia. The surgeon will strategically place tiny incisions to ensure all fat deposit locations are targeted. The surgeon will take care to place the incisions in places where resulting scars will be less noticeable. A small instrument called a cannula is inserted into the incisions and using a back and forth motion, the fat is vacuumed out. The targeted locations to be liposuctioned are carefully chosen to ensure proportional and natural-looking results.
Following the liposuction procedure, patients need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks that will provide support, suppress swelling, control fluid buildup, and assist in achieving the new contoured look of their thighs. Many patients experience little or no downtime after thigh liposuction but recovery is dependent on the type of procedure performed. Patients are encouraged to walk immediately after the procedure to help speed up the healing process. Strenuous exercise and activity should be done only after being cleared by the surgeon.
How Long Do the Results Last?
After thigh liposuction, the fat cells that are removed do not come back but they can grow bigger if proper diet and exercise are not maintained. Your newly contoured thighs will naturally age with you.
