4 Things to Know About Thigh Liposuction


thigh liposuction

Thigh liposuction is a treatment offered by Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and it’s one of our most common types of liposuction given. Our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John J. Corey understands the importance of feeling and looking good, as our bodies are constantly changing, and we’re constantly looking for ways to enhance our appearance. 

What is Thigh Liposuction?

Thigh liposuction targets your stubborn fat on your thighs that don’t respond to dieting and exercising. This treatment is designed to contour your inner thighs and create a thigh gap. Thigh liposuction can also get rid of any chafing that you may be experiencing in the inner thighs. With outer thigh liposuction, it treats those stubborn "saddle bag" areas that can be seen through clothing. Many patients may even need to wear a larger size pant just to fit over the problem areas in their thighs.

1. To Receive Thigh Liposuction, You Need To Be the Right Candidate

To be considered an excellent candidate for liposuction on your thighs, you should be considered generally healthy. You should also be a non-smoker, understand the realistic outcomes, and be ready to follow Dr. John J. Corey's advice, be around the correct weight for your height, and have fat pockets on your inner or outer thighs that you aren't able to get rid of with dieting and exercising. 

2. Results Aren’t Immediate

When you receive thigh liposuction from Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it’s important to understand that results aren’t always immediate. While you may start seeing a difference right after your treatment, it could take two weeks to three months for full results to appear. 

3. Thigh Liposuction Is Not a Weight Loss Solution

While you may lose some weight from thigh liposuction, this type of treatment is not a solution for weight loss. Thigh liposuction works to give your thighs a more defined and contoured look.

4. There Are Many Benefits to Thigh Liposuction

At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we can assure you there are significant benefits to receiving liposuction in the thighs, including:

  • Your body will appear more balanced
  • You will have better clothing options
  • You will experience less chafing and discomfort in the inner thighs
  • These stubborn areas will be less likely to show weight gain in the future
