The outer thighs have a tendency to accumulate incredibly stubborn excess fat. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to get rid of fat in the outer thigh area. This causes body-image issues and can make it uncomfortable to wear certain types of clothing. At Downsize! Lipo Center of Houston, we offer liposuction for the outer thighs for our Houston patients.
What Is Outer Thigh Liposuction?
Fat buildup in the outer thighs can occur due to aging, lifestyle, pregnancy, the side effects of certain medications, and weight gain. While both the inner thighs and outer thighs can develop excess fat, fat buildup is more noticeable in the outer thigh area. Liposuction is the perfect solution for removing excess fat from the outer thighs.
We offer a customized liposuction procedure specifically designed to remove unwanted fat in the outer thighs. This can be performed together with inner thigh liposuction. By removing stubborn excess fat, it is possible for our patients to achieve their ideal body contours.
Am I a Good Candidate for Outer Thigh Liposuction?
Patients who are bothered by the excess fat in their outer thighs are ideal candidates for outer thigh liposuction. The best candidates have not been able to achieve results from their weight-loss program, diet, or exercise. Healthy patients with realistic goals are excellent candidates for outer thigh liposuction.
During your consultation, we will discuss your body-contouring goals and examine your thighs. We will also evaluate your medical history before presenting a personalized liposuction treatment plan for your outer thighs. We will discuss every detail of the treatment plan with you. You can ask questions at any point during our consultation.
The Outer Thigh Liposuction Procedure
The outer thigh liposuction procedure can last around one to three hours depending on the treatment areas, techniques used, and amount of fat removed.
The outer thigh liposuction procedure will be performed while the patient is awake. General anesthesia will not be administered to the patient to avoid the risk factors associated with it. Because of this, recovery time is shorter, typically only 48 hours.
During treatment, a very small incision is created in the outer thigh. A tool called a cannula is inserted, and then the excess fat is removed through the cannula.
The Recovery Process
The patient can go home right after the outer thigh liposuction procedure with some assistance. A compression garment must be worn to help deal with the swelling during the recovery process. Bruising will also be present for a time but will fade shortly.
The patient will be provided with recovery instructions. The patient can go back to normal activities after 48 hours of recovery. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled to ensure ideal results and to address any complications.
The results will fully appear once all swelling has gone. It is important for the patient to follow our lifestyle recommendations to maintain the results of the liposuction procedure for years to come.
How Much Does Outer Thigh Liposuction Cost?
The cost of outer thigh liposuction will depend on the total time required to perform the procedure and the amount of fat removed. The liposuction techniques used will also contribute to the overall price of the treatment.
