What Type of Liposuction Procedure Is Used for Leg Fat?

What Type of Liposuction Procedure Is Used for Leg Fat?

The most common technique for leg liposuction is Vaser 360 Leg Contouring. The legs can be a very delicate area, so Vaser is a lot more beneficial than the traditional liposuction techniques. With Vaser 360 Leg Contouring, the surgeon can treat the legs circumferentially, meaning it can treat the leg with a full 360-degree rotation. Most patients who come to the clinic for leg liposuction will be treated with the Vaser 360 Leg Contouring technique since it is less invasive than other cosmetic surgery procedures.

    Why Can Leg Fat Be So Difficult to Remove Through Diet and Exercise?

    Leg fat can be very persistent, this is something that most people are very familiar with. The amount of localised fat in the legs can be determined by your genes, so the accumulation of fat in the legs can also be caused by a genetic predisposition as well as being overweight.

    Another problem with leg fat is the fact that it is mainly superficial. The legs do not have deep compartments where excess fat can be stored, leading to the fat coming to the surface quite quickly.

    Diet and exercise can certainly help to reduce the amount of fat on the legs; however, it depends on your body type. Patients who already have a predisposition for leg fat will find it a lot more difficult to remove excess fat through exercise and diet. Leg liposuction can provide the solution for
    persistent, localised leg fat.

    Certain areas are more prone to the accumulation of fat than others. The inner thighs and outer thighs are especially prone, and often remarkably resistant to weight loss and exercise. Therefore, many patients seek liposuction surgery to remove the fat deposits from these areas of the body.

    What happens During a Leg Liposuction Procedure?

    A liposuction procedure can be executed under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic. The type of anaesthetic used heavily depends on the surgical procedure and the amount of fat that needs to be removed.

    Before the procedure

    Before the procedure

    Before a leg liposuction procedure, it is important to speak to the cosmetic surgeon about whether you are a good candidate for the procedure. Patients who store a considerable amount of fat on their thighs and have been trying to eliminate the fat with diet and exercise without great success are good candidates for the leg liposuction procedure. Many patients who seek surgical fat removal often attempted losing the fat with diet and exercise first but found that the fat was too persistent.

    Leg liposuction can also be a good procedure for patients who have been working to get toned legs but had little success in doing so. Some fats can be very stubborn, even with a good diet and regular exercise. Leg liposuction is therefore also a good option for patients in good physical condition but with a stubborn leg fat problem. If there is cellulite, then your surgeon may recommend the Cellulaze device.

    During the procedure

    During the procedure

    Vaser 360 Leg Contouring can be executed on the inner, outer, front and back thighs. During the procedure, the surgeon will use special ultrasound technology, which is meant to break down the persistent fat cells in the subcutaneous layer of the skin. Once the fat has been broken down, the surgeon can remove it from the leg in liquid form.

    To remove the fat from the leg, the surgeon needs to insert a small tube in the area containing the localised fat. The small tube used in the procedure is often referred to as a cannula, an advanced tool that enables the surgeon to remove the fat from the leg with a minimum amount of disruption.

    Once the cannula is inserted into the target area, it will emit energy pulses that target the fat cells specifically. The breakdown of the fat cells will effectively separate them from important tissue, such as nerves and blood vessels. Once the fat has completely broken down, the surgeon will remove the fat through gentle suction.

    After the procedure

    After the procedure

    As mentioned before, most patients will experience a slight level of discomfort after the procedure. There may also be some slight bruising, which usually subsides a few weeks after the procedure. Most patients are required to wear a special compression garment to reduce some of the bruising and swelling coming from the procedure, but also to help the area conform to its new shape after the sculpting procedure.

    Most patients can leave the clinic immediately after the Vaser procedure. However, before you can leave you will be evaluated by your surgeon and the medical staff. You will also get plenty of information concerning the aftercare before and after the procedure, so you will be fully aware of what to expect once you had the procedure done.

    Most patients who had Vaser 360 Leg Contouring only experience a small amount of pain, which can be treated effectively with over-the-counter painkillers. Your surgeon can also prescribe you some pain medication or antibiotics depending on your situation.
