Liposuction of the outer thighs can give patients a slender and lean appearance, correcting the proportions of the body and giving them greater confidence to look and feel amazing. For some, the lack of improvement in shape and size of the thighs can be difficult and creates issues with self-confidence, as no matter how much exercise they continuously do, the results do not show.
Ageing can have a large effect on the change in the appearance of the outer thighs, and is often due to the loss of tissue elasticity and increased weight in the legs and glute muscles.
The ideal candidate for outer thigh liposuction is someone who has excess fat localised to the outer thighs, as well as good skin elasticity. Those who struggle with excess loose skin or who may have lost a large amount of weight may opt for a lower body lift instead of liposuction. Often patients wanting outer thighs liposuction will combine the inner thighs, as this will improve the overall contour of the legs.
