Many women, no matter how much they exercise, retain fat in their lower body, such as their legs and thighs. A genetic predisposition to heavy thighs or lower legs can be a source of embarrassment or discomfort, and may discourage women from dressing in clothes they would like to wear. Liposuction is an effective solution to this problem.
Liposuction is procedure used to sculpt and remodel a patient’s body by getting rid of unwanted fat in specific areas. Liposuction on the legs and thighs is normally used to remove fat from the upper part of the legs in order to create a more slender, firm, and natural-looking result.
Depending on the amount of fat to be removed and the natural elasticity of the skin, a thigh lift to remove excess skin may be recommended as well.
Liposuction in additional areas, such as the hips, buttocks, lower back, abdomen, or lower legs (knees, calves, and ankles), is often combined with leg and thigh liposuction for an overall sculpted look.
Liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise, or a cure for cellulite. Liposuction, properly used, is a means of removing stubborn fat deposits from specific areas of the body, thus improving the contours of that particular body part.
