Everything You Need To Know About Your Thigh Liposuction Procedure In Perth

Request Consultation

Thigh liposuction is a procedure aimed at the removal of unwanted fat deposits in the thighs. Those fat deposits are often persistent, as most patients will attempt to remove these fat deposits through diet and exercise before they come in for a thigh liposuction.

Even though thigh liposuction is a common procedure, most patients will require more information about the inner workings of this treatment. If you require more info on thigh liposuction, be sure to read the information provided by The Dr Lanzer team below.

Is Thigh Liposuction A Painful Procedure?

Thigh liposuction is usually performed under a local anaesthetic or a general anaesthetic; this means that patients will not experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure itself.

Once the anaesthetic wears off, patients can manage their discomfort by over-the-counter medication or through the medication provided by your cosmetic surgeon.

It is common for patients to experience some discomfort after this procedure; this includes some stiffness and soreness around the treatment area. In some cases, patients can also experience some temporary numbness.

Which Patients Benefit Most From Thigh Liposuction?

Most patients who choose thigh liposuction have a relatively normal weight, but still struggle with persistent fat deposits on their thighs. Patients who have this procedure should also have a relatively elastic skin; this allows the skin to conform to its new shape better and generally yields better results.

Is Thigh Liposuction Suitable For Cellulite On The Thighs?

Thigh liposuction is not a suitable treatment for cellulite. There are other treatments available at The Dr Lanzer Clinic that are aimed at cellulite and can tackle this problem more effectively.

What Does The Surgeon Do During A Thigh Liposuction?

Cosmetic surgeons use a small cannula during a thigh liposuction; this to remove excess fat from the thigh area with a gentle suction process. To exercise the suction, the cannula is connected to a special vacuum pump.

To remove the fat from the thighs, the cannula is inserted underneath the skin. To gain access to this area, the surgeon must make a small incision. The surgeon can also fill the area with so-called tumescent fluid, which numbs the area, reduces bleeding, and prepares the fat further before removal.

Tumescent fluid is usually a combination of anaesthetic and adrenaline; this is introduced into the treatment area for the reasons we mentioned in the previous paragraph. However, it does have an additional purpose. When the fat is removed through the cannula, the saline solution is removed with the fat; this often leaves a smoother contour after the procedure.

Does Thigh Liposuction Have Risks?

Any surgical procedure is accompanied by risks; this does not only include during the procedure, but also after the treatment. When not performed by an experienced surgeon, a patient could experience poor skin contraction, patchy skin, or uneven skin pigmentation.

Please note that the higher the amount of fat removed during a thigh liposuction, the more risk is usually involved with the procedure. Therefore, it is important to choose a cosmetic surgeon who can determine how much fat is safe to remove.

Will There Be Any Scars After Thigh Liposuction?

The cosmetic surgeon only makes a couple of small incisions to gain access to the thigh area; this means that any remaining scars will be relatively small and easily hidden.

How Long Will The Results From Thigh Liposuction Last?

Patients will notice the results from their thigh liposuction shortly after their procedure. Once the body had a couple of months to recover, the results will become even more visible.

The cosmetic surgeon removes fat cells during this procedure; this means that the fat will not return unless the patient gains a significant amount of weight. Weight gain causes remaining fat cells to swell, so the maintenance of results will be subject to the patient maintaining a healthy diet and plenty of exercise.

How Long Do I Need To Recover From Thigh Liposuction?

Recovery time after thigh liposuction can be different from patient to patient. Some patients experience a rather quick decrease of swelling and bruising after the procedure, while others require several months to fully recover from the treatment. Since the recovery can be quite unique to the individual, patients should always listen to their own body where recovery is concerned.
