Thigh liposuction is great option for women who want slimmer, well-shaped thighs that they could not achieve with diets and workouts. Thigh liposuction in Manhattan is performed using Smartlipo laser-assisted technology. The procedure removes fat and tightens the skin, but many patients want to know if the treatment can remove cellulite.
Why Conventional Liposuction is Not a Solution for Cellulite
Cellulite is the uneven, dimpled skin that develops on the hips, thighs, and buttocks. It is a common concern for people who battle with excess fat on the inner and outer thighs.
Liposuction is a body reshaping procedure that gets rid of localized pockets of fat that are difficult to lose through diet and exercise alone. It is not recommended for getting rid of cellulite.
The thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen can develop lumpy, dimpled flesh due to cellulite, a relatively common, mild skin condition. Women are more prone to this problem. Cellulite can appear worse if there is too much fat, although that is not the real cause. As a result, cellulite on the thighs and buttocks can only be slightly reduced by liposuction. On the other hand, if you have thin skin on the thighs and buttocks, it can make the dimpling more noticeable. Due to the nature of their skin, the problem can affect older women to a greater extent.
However, adding a laser treatment to liposuction may help get rid of cellulite, according to the American Academy of Dermatology Association.
Conventional thigh liposuction leaves behind sagging skin and also cannot decrease the appearance of cellulite on your thighs. However, liposuction with Smartlipo Triplex can help in minimizing the appearance of cellulite and also tighten the skin.
The main purpose of Smartlipo is to remove fat, but the procedure’s cutting-edge technology actually motivates the body to increase collagen production which promotes the growth of healthy cells and can make the skin appear tighter, smoother, and more toned and youthful. However, Smartlipo is not designed to address cellulite directly.
How Does Smartlipo Triplex Work?
The minimally invasive FDA approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation uses three laser wavelengths (1064 nm, 1320 nm, and 1440 nm) to liquefy fat, coagulate tissues, reduce bleeding, and tighten skin. The plastic surgeon will first use local anesthetic to numb the treatment area before creating minute incisions to insert the device’s tiny cannula. The fat cells are directly exposed to laser radiation, which causes them to liquefy so that they can be gently suctioned off. The procedure also promotes the formation of collagen by directing the energy to the area below the skin’s surface, which leads to an overall appearance that is tighter and more toned.
Key advantages of thigh liposuction:
- enhances the shape and proportion of the thighs
- allows you to wear the clothing you want
- makes you appear more youthful and fit
Female thigh liposuction using Smartlipo Triplex has numerous advantages over conventional liposuction surgery, such as minimal scarring, reduced swelling, bleeding, bruising, and pain, short recovery period, and quicker healing and recovery.
The quantity of fat removed and the time taken to perform the procedure will determine how long it takes to re cove and heal. Following the treatment, plastic surgeons will advise wearing a compression garment for a few weeks. Within two to three days of treatment, most patients are able to resume their regular routines. It could take anywhere between 6 and 8 weeks to fully heal.
