The procedure improves the silhouette of the thigh which targets and removes the soft fat tissue, or excess fat of the inner thighs. It will improve the appearance of the thigh gap and can often eliminate the chaffing effect between the thighs, by removing the fat that creates heaviness around the area. If the patient’s overall goal is to not have their thighs touch, then the entire length of the inner thighs will be treated.
As with all liposuction procedures, if the patient desires, we can combine liposuction of the inner thighs with other areas, and is often combined with liposuction of the inner knees to give your legs an overall slimness.
The response of the inner thighs to liposuction is better than in some of the other areas of the body. As there are two layers of fat in the thighs, as opposed to the three layers in other areas. This is why the recovery process and the procedure overall is easier than other areas and is considered an excellent place for liposuction.
It is important to remember that liposuction is not a quick fix to losing weight, but the ideal candidate is someone who is close to their desired weight and maintains a healthy diet and exercising regularly. It is also recommended for those who have greater skin elasticity so that they will not be left with excess skin following the procedure.
