Thighs Liposuction

Thighs Liposuction can stop the torment of thunder thighs!

Liposuction of the Thighs is a common area in women and helps to tone and shape the thighs. Many women have a genetic predisposition to store fat in their thighs due to high oestrogen levels. Because it is predominantly due to hormone function, the area can be very resistant to diet and exercise.

“My thighs are such an area of shame for me. I hate that my inner thighs touch, and it causes me so much pain from friction especially in summer. What is frustrating is that I’ve done so many squats, lunges and any leg exercise you can think of, but my thighs just wont get any smaller”


“Two-Body Syndrome”, refers to the mismatch in size between the upper and lower half of the body. Not noticeable when seated, however when standing, the whole body is revealed and the difference becomes prominent. This can cause a lot of women anguish and distress.

Thighs can be broken down into three main sections; Inner, Outer (Posterior) and Frontal (Anterior).

Both inner and outer thighs carry the most amount of fat in the thigh region. Liposuction will help to make legs look slimmer as well as improving the silhouette of the thigh.

Liposuction of the Inner Thighs

Liposuction of the Inner Thighs is the most common area of the thighs requested in women. As well as shaping and reducing the size of the thigh, it can also help in stopping friction pain that women experience in summer. Looking in proportion and body contouring is the ultimate goal of the surgeon, so will remove the fat that is needed to provide a more balanced look. Liposuction is not a tool to remove all the fat that exists in the area.

Liposuction of the Outer Thighs

Liposuction of the Outer Thighs helps to reshape that outer bulge of fat, known as the “saddlebag”. It has a high level of patient satisfaction, and after the procedure, it is evident that  that extra bulge just seems to disappear!

Liposuction of the Frontal Thighs

The frontal thighs generally carry less fat that inner and outer and the goal of the surgeon is to achieve smooth results rather than removing the most amount of fat.

Thigh Extensions

Some patients find that their fat extends to their knee area, particularly from the inner thighs. This area can be treated also and is know as the inner/outer thigh extension. Both the inner and outer thigh extenders can be treated. This can help with the overall circumferential look of the area.

I have cellulite on my thighs. Will Liposuction make it worse?

For most women with adequate skin tone, liposuction will not worsen cellulite. Generally the benefit of removing and sculpting the area outweighs the possibility of cellulite looking any worse. However Liposuction can be combined with Laser Skin Tightening to help the appearance of cellulite. This can be done standalone also (if cellulite is your only problem). Laser skin tightening works be heating up the collagen fibres underneath the skin which stimulates new collagen growth. This thickens and improves the quality of the skin, thus the cellulite appearance reduces. In a study reported  in the US in  2008 found that 85 % of patients rated their Laser Liposuction Cellulite Treatment results as “good” or “excellent” after almost 3 years.
