The thighs are an extremely popular area for liposuction, and anyone interested in contouring their body should give the area consideration.
But there are some things potential patients should watch out for to ensure a fully satisfying cosmetic experience.
It’s All About the Legs
Thigh liposuction may be even more popular than liposuction in the waist, just because slender legs are so highly valued by women.
As we age, it’s the contour and silhouette of many parts of our body can start to decline aesthetically, even if we live healthy lifestyles.
Hence we use fat reduction treatments such as liposuction to contour our body and improve the silhouette.
For the thighs, there are a few possible alternatives for liposuction: the inner thigh, the outer thigh, and even the anterior thigh.
Anterior thigh liposuction is generally the least common of these treatments. Those who have forward protruding thighs may consider this option.
If an individual’s outer thighs are disproportionate, it can give the legs a shorter appearance, which some patients may want to rectify.
The inner thigh is the most common of these areas for treatment, and an extremely common area of treatment for females in general. Many women try to achieve “thigh gap,” where the inner thighs don’t make contact.
Inner Thigh Prudence
Anyone interested in inner thigh liposuction should be aware that the inner knees should be treated at the same time. If the inner thighs are treated as an isolated body part, the legs from the waist down can look uneven.
Patients should look for doctors with high levels of precision, who use smaller cannulas to incrementally and precisely contour the legs–rather than using larger cannulas that can cause irregularities.
