Thigh liposuction removes excess fat from the inner, frontal and outer thighs, giving you a more proportional and flattering contoured look. Women are more likely to seek thigh liposuction since they are anatomically disposed to having fat pockets around the pelvis and thighs. In addition, fat deposits often accumulate on the inner thighs, causing them to rub against each other, which can be pretty uncomfortable due to chafing. As such, the most common type of thigh liposuction is inner thigh liposuction.
Our liposuction team has been carrying out inner thigh procedures for several years, and we are well-equipped to give you the results you have been dreaming of. But, on the other hand, you should not mistake thigh liposuction for a quick fix to issues like cellulite or weight-related complications.
Are You An Ideal Candidate for Thigh Liposuction?
If you’re thinking about booking to have the thigh liposuction procedure at our clinic, there are some crucial facts you should be aware of. First, before anything else, we will evaluate your eligibility for the liposuction treatment on your current weight, health status, lifestyle habits, and skin elasticity.
Additionally, the patient needs to be as close to their ideal weight as possible for the treatment to be successful. An ideal candidate for the procedure also needs to have an excellent immune system, along with firm, elastic skin in the target area. Patients who smoke are not recommended for thigh liposuction because smoking slows down the recovery process. Conditions that lead to poor blood circulation will also be a hindrance for an interested client.
How We Conduct the Thigh Liposuction Procedure
The first step in the procedure is the administration of a tumescent local anaesthetic solution using a cannula. This method is effective as it reduces bleeding and makes the procedure less painful. Recovery is also accelerated when the tumescent technique is used. A vibrating micro-cannula attached to a vacuum pump is then inserted into small incisions made in the sedated area. The injected solution is then sucked out along with the fat. This is a very gentle process, and our surgeon will cautiously take out just enough fat to ensure that the natural body contours are maintained. If too much fat is removed, the patient may end up getting loose skin and stretch marks.
Things can get a little complicated in the case of saddlebags (dense fat in the inner thighs). And in such cases, we usually use ‘Tickle Lipo,’ which utilizes a special type of cannula. In this process, the fat deposits are liquefied via notational infrasonic vibrations before being suctioned out to minimize bruising and eventual scarring. This treatment method is minimally invasive, and so it is a safe procedure that does not interfere with the patient’s nerves, blood vessels, or surrounding tissue. After your procedure at our top-tier clinic, the final appearance is guaranteed to be smooth.
Recovery after A Thigh Lift
The improved look is evident immediately after treatment, and patients can even leave the facility on the same day. Patients will then receive compression garments to facilitate more effective skin contraction and help with the slight swelling after the procedure. You will be required to wear the compression garments for at least 4 weeks for the swelling to subside completely, but normal activities can resume as early as 2 weeks post-treatment. Full recovery takes about 3 to 6 months if no complications arise during healing.
