Liposuction Surgery For The Thighs (Saddlebags)

Get rid of Unwanted Fat on Your Thighs (Saddlebags) with Liposuction

Liposuction Surgery For The Thighs (Saddlebags)One of the foremost cosmetic concerns among women is the presence of stubborn “saddlebags” and fat pockets that make the inner thighs rub against each other.

Liposuction cosmetic surgery of the thighs can effectively remove this excess fat providing the hips, thighs, and legs with a more proportional and sculpted appearance.

In comparison to other body areas, the thighs are more responsive to liposuction. Thigh fat has two layers, unlike three in the back and trunk. This makes the thighs a suitable area for liposuction treatment.

Thigh liposuction offers dramatic results for patients with sufficient skin elasticity to adapt to the new thigh contours after the procedure without giving a crepey or loose appearance.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides liposuction body sculpting to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding locations.

Inner Thigh Liposuction

Most women considering this procedure seek sleeker thighs that do not rub against each other. In such cases, liposuction cosmetic surgery can be used to treat the inner thigh’s entire length. This offers the patient with a uniform, proportional, and natural shape in the whole thigh region.

Outer Thigh Liposuction

If excess fat develops on the outer thighs, also known as “saddlebags,” the thighs give the illusion of a low gravity center. This causes the legs to appear short and disproportionate to the rest of the body.

Outer thigh liposuction cosmetic surgery helps reduce this effect as well as restore a contoured and proportionate appearance.

Frontal Thigh Liposuction

The frontal portion of the thighs is treated less often than the inner and outer thighs. In fact, most surgeons will refuse to perform anterior thigh liposuction as it can lead to skin aberrations and create a high rate of patient dissatisfaction.

However, in some cases, a cosmetic surgeon may undertake frontal thigh liposuction to maintain balance and symmetry with the full leg and thigh. But the front portion of the thigh has a different density of fat. It will need to be suctioned in the deeper plane to prevent any aberrations in the contours.

Combined Procedure

The thighs usually undergo liposuction with the hips and flanks to improve the shape of the buttock. The knee region also undergoes liposuction to enhance the lower thigh shape. In addition, the surgeon may harvest and inject the fat into the butt to improve the buttock shape and projection.

It is important to limit the amount of fluid and fat that is eliminated in one session while undertaking liposuction in multiple areas. This is particularly vital if the liposuction is undertaken as an outpatient procedure. It is possible to perform large volume liposuction. However, it may require overnight monitoring of the patient in the hospital.

Recovery and Results

The healing period varies among patients. Patients may perform specific cardio exercises in around three weeks after the procedure. But the patient will need to wear a compression garment to reduce the swelling and bruising. Certain results will be noticeable instantly, but the results will not establish for nearly three months following the liposuction procedure.
