Summer is here and, with it, appreciably warm weather. In other words, it’s time for shorts and bikini bottoms. However, if you’re not comfortable with the appearance or shape of your thighs, you may shy away from wearing clothing that draws attention to your thighs. Luckily, unsightly thighs don’t have to ruin your summer. You can get a thigh liposuction.
Is Thigh Liposuction Different From Liposuction?
Thigh liposuction is a specific type of liposuction. A plastic surgeon will perform thigh liposuction in the same manner she or he performs standard liposuction. The surgeon marks areas on your inner or outer thighs, or both. Then, the surgeon injects a cannula needle into the marked areas. The excess fat is suctioned away, leaving you with a contoured body. You’ll need two to four weeks to recover as you would for typical liposuction.
Reasons to Get Thigh Liposuction
The reasons you may want a thigh liposuction are unique to you. The following are merely commonly heard reasons for getting the surgery.
Inner-thigh rub, commonly referred to as “chub rub,” occurs when the skin of your inner thighs rub together, creating friction. This friction causes the skin of your inner thighs to burn, blister, and chaff. If you find yourself inconvenienced and uncomfortable by chub rub, then you can request liposuction on your inner thighs.
Your thighs are a defining part of your physique. The size of your thighs can significantly enhance the appearance of your buttocks and waistline or reduce them. In many cases, women and men will want thigh liposuction when they feel as though their thighs are not complementary to another part of their body, such as their waist. Sometimes, due to genetics, excess fat tissue will gather in a person’s thigh area disproportionately to the rest of their body, creating a peculiar frame. In this case, wanting thigh liposuction to even out your body is commonly desired.
Who Is a Candidate for Thigh Liposuction?
You may be a candidate for thigh liposuction if:
- You have excess inner or outer thigh fat.
- You are not pregnant.
- You are healthy.
- You are not taking blood thinners or anti-inflammatory medication.
