Although people typically associate lipo with the stomach area, liposuction for the inner thighs is also an option. There is a tendency for fat cells to accumulate in specific areas of the body. The thighs are one such area. Therefore, more people are beginning to seek thigh liposuction to restore their body’s attractive proportions. With inner thigh liposuction, patients can enjoy better comfort and better body aesthetics.
Should I Have Lipo On My Thighs?
If you have excess fat on your outer thighs, lipo could be an ideal solution. Sometimes known as saddlebags, these deposits can be distressing since they can negatively affect your appearance. Wearing pants or tight skirts can feel out of the question since your silhouette may be a V-shape or figure 8.
Can I Achieve A Thigh Gap Through Lipo?
Although you can have liposuction on your outer thighs, the inner thighs are also a popular choice. It’s important to note there’s no guarantee you can achieve a thigh gap. Many women are keen to have inner thigh lipo to make their thighs no longer touch. This makes it easier to run or walk without discomfort. While liposuction can improve this problem significantly, sometimes, the muscles will be diagonal in shape. This means the sides will always touch regardless of how much fat a surgeon removes.
How Long Will It Take to Recover from Thigh Lipo?
It’s impossible to determine how long a person’s recovery will be after thigh lipo. This is because all patients heal at a different rate. To shorten your recovery time, you should avoid taking hot showers for a couple of days after your procedure. You should also wear your compression garment after surgery as advised by your surgeon. Attending your follow-up appointment is also essential.
Will the Surgeon Perform Liposuction on My Thighs While I’m Asleep?
Here at Artistic Lipo and Plastic Surgery, we carry out our liposuction procedures while patients are awake. You’ll experience no pain but will be alert throughout the process. This allows Dr. Su to achieve a complete result. He will ask you to tense your muscles and move into different positions during the procedure. As a result, he can sculpt the fat more effectively to achieve the result you desire.
Is the Fat on My Thighs Genetic?
Your genes often determine thigh fat. If others in your family have a similar problem, there is a chance you will, too. This applies even if those in your family are a different height and weight. They may have the genetic tendency to carry weight on their thighs.
Can I Have Liposuction on the Rest of My Legs at the Same Time as Thigh Lipo?
Some patients want the calf and ankle treated with liposuction at the same time as their thighs. Whether this is necessary will depend on your body shape. For some people, it’s a good idea and can restore the beauty of the full leg.
