Women who have gained weight often complain of chaffing in the thigh gap. It can be uncomfortable to walk, and the amount of fat can easily be removed by inner thigh liposuction.
Cosmetic surgery in this area is somewhat complicated because the thigh has four sides plus the area surrounding the knee. This requires the right touch from an experienced cosmetic surgeon to make the surgery look natural on all facets, including the inner knee for symmetry.
You may want to consider thigh lipo to reduce unwanted fat and give your legs a slimmer, more elegant look and stride.
Lets’ go over what the procedure entails.
There are four common areas of the thighs that can be targeted using liposuction:
The inner thighs are often resistant to dieting and exercise. Luckily this area of the body is easily targeted using Water Lipo. Women have a genetic predisposition to store fat and benefit immediately from inner thigh liposuction as it relieves chafing.
The Outer thigh liposuction has an immediate slimming effect on patients. The stubborn fat stored in the outer thighs tends to be globular and heavier than the fat that deposits in the inner thighs. While dieting and exercise can reduce fat deposits, patients with excess fat in areas such as the saddlebags may find lipo a more convenient alternative.
The banana fold, located just under the buttocks, is also considered part of the thigh. This area has a tendency to spread out. It really benefits from liposuction as it helps tightens the look of the butt cheek and its pleasing form fold.
The front of the thigh usually shows the muscle definition. In some instances, the surgeon can suggest a treatment to make the muscle tone more prevalent
During the initial consultation, the doctor will evaluate your leg’s shape to determine which areas would benefit the most from Waterlipo™ treatment.
Laser Liposuction, known as SmartLipo, can reduce the loose skin by producing new collagen during your recovery period.
To determine if you’re a good candidate for thigh liposuction, ask yourself these questions:
Louis D. Cole, M.D., is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the American Society of Liposuction Surgery. Dr. Cole has been trained and is certified to perform SmartLipo, tumescent liposuction, power-assisted liposuction, and fat transfer to the breast and buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift).

Due to Dr. Ball’s years of training in general surgery and plastic surgery, he has been sought out for his abilities to repair and revise cosmetic surgery problems and complications.
Most patients experience some discomfort to mild discomfort after the fat removal procedure for a few days. The numbness or pain usually decreases after the second or third day. We recommend that you rest at least two days following the procedure. You will be wearing a compression garment that will help the tissues to stabilize. You will have some drainage for the first 24-48 hours after the procedure, which is normal. The tiny incisions will heal and disappear in a few days.
Avoid any strenuous workout for at least three weeks.
Patients will need to take special care to follow the doctor’s instructions to get the best results in the thigh area. Below are some critical self-care guidelines that patients should follow to achieve the best results from their procedure:
Most patients are fully recovered and back to their regular routine within a few weeks after surgery.
Many patients have been asking if a Brazilian butt lift can be done with the extracted fat from their thighs. The answer is yes assuming there is enough fat to inject high up in your buttocks. This procedure will give you that dream heart-shape or bubble butt you have been dreaming off.
