Thigh fat is extra weight and loose skin on the thighs. Many people find it discomforting and want to get rid of it altogether or at least reduce the fat to achieve thigh contour in balance with other body features. In today’s time, it is a very common aesthetic issue due to more people having sedentary lifestyles.

Many women and men struggle with thigh fat. Fat tends to gather around their inner or outer thighs, making it difficult for them to wear certain outfits or even walk properly. To maintain their body shape, they must get their thigh fat removed or reduced. Thankfully, there are many options to eliminate or remove thigh fat in Hyderabad. The most popular minimally invasive approach is thigh liposuction offered by expert cosmetic surgeons at Eternelle Aesthetics.   

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a minimally invasive technique designed to remove extra, unsightly body fats that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is most commonly performed on the abdomen, thighs, hips, and buttocks. It is not a weight-loss procedure but can be used to treat obesity.

There are advanced liposuction options available nowadays like power-assisted liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction, or ultrasound-assisted liposuction.

What is Thigh Liposuction?

Thigh liposuction in Hyderabad is a popular cosmetic surgery performed at Eternelle Aesthetics for removing extra thigh fat. It is used to shape and contour the thighs, giving them a smoother and more sculpted appearance. It can also aid in the reduction of cellulite and stretch marks on the thighs, as well as the correction of any asymmetry in the thighs. This procedure is frequently performed to improve the appearance of the legs and even alleviate back pain.

Thigh liposuction is becoming increasingly popular nowadays among women since it allows them to remove extra fat from their thighs and legs without having to undergo expensive surgical procedures such as thigh lift surgery. Its benefits are often long-lasting and permanent, as long as the patient follows a proper diet and exercise regimen. 

Types of Thigh Liposuction

  • Inner thigh liposuction: This procedure removes the more jelly-like fat between the groyne and the knee. Since inner thigh fat is less dense or fibrous than fat found in other areas, liposuction is quite efficient in reducing rubbing between the thighs and generating a more defined thigh gap.
  • Outer thigh liposuction: This procedure tackles the less dense fat in the outer lateral thigh area from the hip bone to the outer knee and just below the bottom, which is commonly referred to as "saddlebags."

Both outer and inner thigh liposuction can be done at the same time for an immediate impact and noticeably slimmer-looking thighs or performed separately, as per the patient's needs.

Reasons to Get Thigh Liposuction

The reasons for wanting thigh liposuction are unique to everyone. The following are only some of the most popular reasons for people undergoing thigh liposuction:

  • Inner-thigh rub

Inner-thigh rub, also known as "chub rub," arises when the skin of the inner thighs rubs together, causing friction. This friction causes the inner thighs' skin to burn, blister, and chaff. If chub rub bothers an individual and makes them uncomfortable, they can get liposuction done on their inner thighs.

  • Disproportion

Thighs are a distinguishing feature of the shape of an individual’s body. The size of the thighs can either enhance or detract from the appearance of the buttocks and waistline. Heredity can lead to the accumulation of excess fat tissue in a person's thigh area, disproportionately to the rest of their body, resulting in an unusual frame. Many women and men seek thigh liposuction when they believe their thighs do not complement another portion of their body, such as their waist and so they need to balance out their figure.

What happens during a Thigh Liposuction?

Liposuction Surgery for Thighs is usually done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Depending on the amount of fat removed and the technique used, the procedure can take 1 to 3 hours.

There are different technologies available for thigh liposuction, these include:

  • Tumescent liposuction: This is the traditional approach to performing liposuction. In this technique, before removing fat cells, a significant amount of saline solution, local anesthesia, and a vasoconstrictor are injected into the treatment area for easy breakdown of fatty tissues, better comfort, and minimising bleeding.
  • Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL): In this form of liposuction, a laser is used as a source of heat to melt down fatty tissues. This allows for easier removal and even possibly helps in improving skin’s tightness.
  • Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL): This procedure uses ultrasonic energy to liquefy fat cells before removal.
  • VASER liposuction: This technology involves the use of high-frequency radiofrequency waves to heat up and melt down stubborn thigh fat.
  • Water jet assisted liposuction: In this liposuction technique, the thigh fat cells are dislodged using a stream of powerful water jet.

The procedure typically consists of the following steps, regardless of the method that has been used:

  1. The surgeon marks the treatment areas on the patient's thighs (inner and/or outer).
  2. Small skin incisions are made in the marked area of the thighs that need to be slimmed down.  
  3. Through the incision, a tiny thin tube called a cannula is inserted. The cannula is moved back and forth to dislodge the fat cells. Different methods can be used to break up and remove fatty tissue via vacuum suction.
  4. Sutures are used to close the incision wounds and a compression garment is provided to the patient to reduce post-treatment swelling and facilitate healing.

After Thigh Liposuction

The recovery time varies depending on the person and the size of the area being treated. Typically, the recovery period is short, with most patients able to resume their routine activities within a few days. Many patients can return to work or school within a week following the procedure.

One may need to wear special bandages or compression garments after thigh liposuction until the skin has stretched sufficiently to fit without restriction. It is recommended to stay off your feet as much as possible after thigh liposuction for a few weeks. Long periods of walking or standing should be avoided. Patients should also avoid going up and down stairs or running around constantly.

Thigh liposuction may be beneficial for people who want slimmer, better-sculpted legs. Patients can decide whether the treatment is right for them by learning about the procedure, recovery, advantages, and risks involved.

Liposuction results can be influenced by the surgeon's vision, expertise, and talent in executing the treatment, as well as the volume of fat and excess skin that must be removed from the patient. Following liposuction, the "excess" skin usually shrinks and becomes taut.

One will notice a healthier body shape once the swelling and fluid retention has subsided. It could take several months for it to disappear. Nonetheless, there are some cases where excision of excess skin is essential.
