Are you bothered about your thighs or legs not being proportionate to the rest of your body? Is excessive fat in the thigh area causing physical discomfort? Has diet and exercise proved ineffective to get rid of the stubborn fat? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you could consider thigh liposuction.
The thighs are one of the areas where women’s bodies tend to store excess fat predominantly. When the body stores a significant amount of fat in the legs, you may look bottom-heavy. Too much fat in the knee area can also creates distortion, causing the legs to look disproportionate.
Besides affecting overall body contour and preventing you from finding clothes that fit the lower part of your body, thigh fat causes physical issues such as
- Rash and a burning sensation in the inner thighs due to chafing
- Darker areas on the inner thighs due to prolonged friction
- Stretch marks
Excessive thigh fat is not easy to get rid of with just conventional methods like diets and exercise. Laser liposuction can provide the solution. In established plastic surgery facilities, the procedure is performed using the Smartlipo Triplex workstation. You are a good candidate for the treatment if you have elastic skin, are healthy, and have realistic expectations.
This minimally invasive liposuction procedure can address stubborn, localized pockets of fat in almost any area of the body, and is ideal for difficult to treat areas like the thighs. The Smartlipo Triplex workstation uses three laser wavelengths (1064nm, 1320nm and 1440nm) for safe and effective fat removal and skin tightening. Just tiny incisions are needed to insert the laser-enabled cannula and liquefy the stubborn fat so that it can be easily removed. The benefits of this treatment include
- Needs only local anesthesia
- Short treatment time
- Minimal pain, discomfort and bruising
- Stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin
The contouring of the thighs can be combined with sculpting of the legs, ankles and knees to improve the outcome. Calf liposuction, another aesthetic procedure related to the leg aesthetics, is also quite popular. You can expect to see the complete results of your thigh lipo treatment within a few weeks, with even more improvements over time. In most cases, patients get back to their routine activities within a week after the procedure.
Choosing a plastic surgeon with expertise in performing SmartLipo laser liposuction is important for an optimal outcome – slimmer, attractive thighs and a well-shaped lower body.
