The thighs are one of the most common areas that are a cause of aesthetic concern in women, the reason being that fat easily accumulates here. Though diet and exercise can reduce thigh fat to a certain extent, most women retain pockets of fat that do not respond to conventional fat reduction methods. Female thigh liposuction in Manhattan is an ideal option to address the concern. The procedure can safely remove unwanted fat to result in slimmer, shapelier thighs.
Traditional thigh liposuction can remove unwanted fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, but the procedure is invasive and requires longer recovery time. Moreover, as it does not provide any skin tightening benefits, and there is an increased possibility of dimpling or sagging after the procedure, particularly in older patients who have lost skin elasticity. Conventional liposuction also involves surgical trauma and longer downtime and recovery. In leading AAAASF accredited plastic surgery practices in NYC, surgeons utilize the minimally-invasive FDA approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation to perform liposuction on thighs. Laser energy is used to liquefy fat in the problem area. The fat is removed through a cannula (thin tube). This procedure requires only local anesthesia and not general anesthesia which is required for traditional liposuction. The laser causes the collagen to contract, which tightens the skin, and addresses concerns of skin sagging.
To create the best results in the thighs, thigh liposuction is performed on three separate treatment areas: the inner thighs, the outer thighs, and the anterior thighs.
- Inner thighs: Inner thigh liposuction in Manhattan addresses a woman’s common aesthetic concerns as well as issues such thigh chafing which occurs due to excess fat accumulation in the inner thighs. While performing inner thigh liposuction, expert surgeons usually the entire area down to the inner knee. This will provide better proportioned thighs and knees with more natural looking outcomes.
- Outer thighs: Also known as saddle bags, stubborn fat stored in the hips and outer thighs can make you look awkward, especially in clothes that fit well. Outer thigh liposuction using Smartlipo Triplex, an advanced FDA-approved laser-assisted device, can provide the solution to this aesthetic issue.
- Anterior (frontal) thighs: The front area of thighs can protrude forward, causing the body to look disproportionate or bottom heavy. Liposuction in this area of thigh will maintain balance and proportion throughout the entire leg. One of the key considerations in anterior thigh liposuction is the fact that the front of the thigh has a unique, feminine curvature. To restore this natural shape, expert plastic surgeons address the anterior thigh from four different directions.
Thigh liposuction using the Smartlipo device begins with making a tiny incision at the treatment site to insert the small laser-assisted cannula. Laser energy is directly delivered to the fat cells, which liquefies them. The fat is then sucked out from the body. By directing the energy to the area beneath the surface of the skin, the technique also encourages the development of collagen, which results in a tighter, more toned appearance overall.
One of the major advantages of laser liposuction in Manhattan is that it encourages the production of collagen, which produces excellent skin tightening effects. Other benefits of laser liposuction include minimal scarring, swelling, bleeding, bruising and pain as well as short treatment time and downtime, faster healing, and speedy recovery. The procedure can be performed on an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia.
