Thigh Liposuction in Connecticut
Thin and toned thighs are a sign of beauty, femininity, and athletic appeal. Some women are blessed with genes for beautiful thighs where some women need to exercise in order to obtain the thighs they desire.
Stubborn Thigh Fat
Even with exercise, sometimes there are stubborn areas of fat that just don’t disappear. Two of the most common areas where women want improvement in the shape of their thighs are the saddlebags and the upper inner thighs.
Liposuction of the Saddlebags and Inner Thighs
The saddlebags are the upper outer thigh areas which cause the sides of the pants below the waist to bulge. The upper inner thighs are an area where the thighs tend to rub against each other, and women often desire some space between the inner thighs when standing straight. If this can’t be achieved with exercise and dieting, and if there is sufficient skin tone, liposuction is a good option for contour improvement. Liposuction of these areas permanently removes the fat and gives a more athletic and slim contour to the outer and inner thighs.
Recovery after Thigh Liposuction
Liposuction of the thighs is performed as an outpatient surgery. It can often be combined with liposuction of other areas of the body if needed. There is minimal pain with the surgery and a compression garment is worn for about 3-4 weeks afterwards to help with swelling and contouring of the skin.
Thigh Liposuction vs Thigh Lift
If there is excess loose skin in either the outer or inner thighs, a thigh lift may be a better operation in order to avoid having sagging skin if only liposuction is performed. Patients that have lost a significant amount of weight or have stretch marks on the thighs are usually better candidates for a thigh lift instead of liposuction.
