Thighs can be divided into the outer (saddle bags), inner thighs and front (anterior) thighs.
The outer thighs determine in part the waist to hip ratio. The larger the bulk on the outer thighs is the more prominent the hips appear.
Reducing the pocket will still maintain the curvature on the outer thighs, but reduce the waist to hip ratio.
The inner thighs can often rub together and cause discomfort and clothing limitations. Whether a thigh gap is achieved is dependent on the underlying anatomy.
VASER is a perfect tool to reduce these pockets. The procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic or twilight sedation. This can be done in combination with the knees.
