Exploring Thigh Liposuction Procedure

     Not all body fat is easy to lose, even with cosmetic procedures. In fact, one of the hardest places to lose fat in your body and to change its shape is the legs, especially in the thighs. Diet and exercise doesn't always do the trick, as many of us have discovered over the years. We may lose some mass in the thigh area but we may not get the shape we're looking for. It's those cases in which people look to other solutions for their fatty thighs. Many people turn to thigh liposuction as the answer to this problem.

The name says it all. Inner thigh liposuction is meant to remove all extra fat in your thighs and reshape your legs in that area to give you a more attractive body shape. These types of procedures have evolved over the years and have become less dangerous than they used to be, but you should keep in mind that they are still serious and may have a relatively long recovery period. Make sure you explore all of your options before you decide which fat-removing treatment is best suited to your needs.

First, you should decide whether this is the procedure you want, and then you must decide on the doctor who will perform the work. Have a lengthy discussion about the procedure with your doctor. Make sure you get all the details worked out, and that means everything - cost, pre-procedure preparations, post-procedure, who will take you home, the recovery period, etc. You'll be thankful you were prepared before you get the thigh liposuction done, if nothing else than for your own peace of mind. You won't feel as nervous about the cosmetic procedure if you've educated yourself about it first and made plans for your recovery period.

Most of these procedures can be done with a local anesthetic, which will numb the thighs but you will be awake during the treatment. This is done to reduce the risk of anesthesia, although some of the liposuction may require full anesthesia. It just depends on the individual situation.

Anesthesia is needed because thigh liposuction involves the doctor making small incisions into the inner thighs and sucking out the excess fat. The doctor will use a tiny device called a cannula to remove the fat, which had been loosened before being sucked out. The incisions will be stitched up in a way that will produce the least obvious scars. Recovery can be lengthy, so don't plan on any hiking trips in the near future.

Those are the basics of a thigh liposuction. Each procedure, however, can be a little different. Some doctors, for example, prefer different methods for loosening up fat before it's removed. Detailed information should be discussed with your doctor before you schedule the procedure. And remember that nearly all cosmetic procedures usually require multiple treatments, so don't be disappointed if you don't have the perfect look after just one procedure. But you will have much less fat in your thighs and, just maybe, a boost in your self-confidence.
