1. When do you need thigh Liposuction?

Liposuction is a procedure for removing fat from areas of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. The fat in the thighs tends to have the most localized deposits of fat, and those are usually inherited.

2. What is the Procedure for Thigh Liposuctions?

The following are different types of liposuction of the thighs in India:

  • Fluid injection or tumescent liposuction: This is the classic liposuction method. Several large volumes of a medicated solution containing anesthesia, epinephrine, and a salt solution are injected before the fat is removed.
  • Super-wet technique: It is similar to the fluid injection technique. The difference lies in the amount of fluid to inject, which is the same as the fat to be removed.
  • Ultrasonic liposuction and external ultrasonic liposuction: VASER technology is one of the developments in ultrasound-assisted liposuction, which uses low-power ultrasound to create precise cavitation of fat cells with little risk of damaging nearby tissue.
  • Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL): It uses laser energy to induce lipolysis (liquify fat) and stimulate new collagen formation. 
  • Power-assisted liposuction (PAL): This method uses a controlled cannula to create small, rapid movements that loosen and break up fat cells, which makes it easier to remove fat while causing less pain and bleeding.

3. What is the recovery time for liposuction on thighs?

Post-operative Care: 

  • Unless extremely large volumes of fat need to be removed, liposuction does not require an overnight stay in the hospital.

Recovery: 

  • Your results of liposuction in thighs can be seen after the swelling subsides.
  • In the area treated with liposuction, you may also notice some loose skin. Over time, loose skin will get tighter.
  • In some cases, surgical intervention may be needed to tighten up the skin, depending on age or how much fat was removed. 
  • After the procedure, you might not see the results you want right away. It may take 1-3 months for you to see final results depending on how much fat was removed.
  • Most people return to work within a few days and can resume their normal routines within two weeks. It varies from person to person, however.
