For many women, the thought of having slimmer, more defined thighs is very enticing. The thighs can be a real problem area for many women, who find that fat can bulk up on the legs causing an imbalanced body shape. This is especially true for women who suffer from fat disorders like Lipoedema.
That’s where thigh liposuction comes in. Removing the fat from the thighs via liposuction can have benefits way beyond the aesthetic appearance. In taking away bulky fat from the legs, often women feel more confident, able to more freely and more motivated to exercise.
As the thigh area is such a large zone, it is broken down into sections. You can have thigh liposuction on the following areas:
Answer: If you are looking for slimmer, more defined legs then liposuction can help. Often, thigh fat can be stubborn and non-responsive to exercise and dietary changes, whereas liposuction is able to remove it straight from the source.
Answer: It is actually very straight forward. Your mobility is really not that impaceted at all. Liposuction on the thigh area is treated as a day case, meaning that you can walk in and out on the same day all going well. MLD massage and compression garments will aid the recovery process however you may still see swelling and bruising for a few weeks. We encourage walking immediately the next day and generally people can expect to be back to their day to day life within a week. Full recovery can be expected after about 4 weeks.
Answer: Yes! VASER Liposuction is perfect at targeting pockets of fat and sculpting around the muscle in order to give a toned look. By removing the outer fat layer it can also improve function and mobility especially with Lipoedema.
Answer: You can exercise more and target the inner thigh area if you are looking to lose inner thigh fat, however some people may find that their body naturally stores fat in the inner thigh. Often excess bulk in this area can result in friction and chafing which is uncomfortable. This area can be very hard to combat, and therefore liposuction is a great choice for those people.
Answer: During the procedure, you shouldn’t experience pain since the area is numbed with local anaesthetic. You will also be under twilight sedation during the procedure, so you should be very comfortable. However, you may experience discomfort in the recovery period following thigh liposuction and painkillers are recommended to combat this.
