Can I get liposuction to get rid of thigh fat?

Liposuction is an excellent way to lose thigh fat! This procedure can help reduce fat while sculpting the legs for slim, sexy results. Laser Liposuction is safe, highly effective, and can be performed almost anywhere on the body to achieve the appearance our patients desire.

Whether you have lost significant weight or are trying to achieve a thigh gap, leg liposuction can help you achieve the appearance you desire!

Liposuction is a form of fat reduction surgery. This treatment is not meant as a weight loss solution but instead as a body contouring tool for otherwise healthy and active people seeking to make cosmetic improvements.

What are the benefits of Laser Liposuction?

Once laser liposuction eliminates your subcutaneous fat, the cells cannot regrow.

Laser Liposuction will eliminate fat and sculpt the thighs in a safe, comfortable procedure. The procedure is targeted and gentle: patients only need local anesthetic and an oral sedative like valium to be kept comfortable during the procedure. This will majorly reduce post-procedure downtime and enable patients to return home clear-headed, not groggy, as is typical with general anesthesia. During Laser Lipo, tumescent fluid is first injected into the treatment area. Tumescent fluid is composed of saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine. This solution helps remove the need for general anesthesia. Local anesthesia and sedation will allow you to stay awake but completely comfortable during the procedure.

Results achieved with liposuction are impressive and long-lasting.

Epinephrine additionally helps to constrict blood vessels, reducing blood loss and shortening the recovery period. Together, the ingredients of the tumescent fluid help firm and swell the treatment area, allowing for the surgeon to strategically remove fat from the thighs without causing trauma to surrounding tissues.

The procedure requires only small incisions to perform. Depending on the intended results, the incisions will be made along the buttocks crease, the inner, or the outer thigh. The thighs will be sculpted into their ideal contour. Your thigh liposuction procedure will be performed within thirty to ninety minutes.

Keeping a healthy lifestyle and stable weight will help you maintain the slim, sculpted contour of your thighs for years!

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a highly popular non-surgical method of eliminating fat almost anywhere on the body, including the thighs, chin, and abdomen. The procedure applies controlled cool temperatures to stubborn fat deposits, in a process known as cryolipolysis. Fat cells, when exposed to extreme cold, break down. CoolSculpting keeps the surrounding tissues warm while the unwanted fat is subjected to temperatures between 39 and 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Some patients describe a slight stinging sensation but say that the treatment overall is comfortable. The fat cells in the treated area will break down and be naturally eliminated from the body over the weeks following the CoolSculpting treatment.

CoolSculpting for Thighs can be completed in under 45 minutes.

The procedure is completely non-invasive and requires no downtime. You can return to your day immediately after!

Why Should I get CoolSculpting for my Thighs?

Do you want to reduce the fat on your thighs, but don’t want to go through a surgical procedure? CoolSculpting is a safe, convenient fat elimination method that requires no incisions or downtime. If you do not want to take time off work, consider fighting your unwanted thigh fat with CoolSculpting!

Address saddlebags with Outer Thigh CoolSculpting, achieve the desired thigh gap with Inner Thigh CoolSculpting, or combine both treatments for a quick, comprehensive fat elimination solution. You can receive Thigh CoolSculpting and be back to your day within an hour!

Your body will naturally dispose of your destroyed fat cells over the weeks following your CoolSculpting. A single CoolSculpting treatment can reduce fat in your thighs by 20-25%. Patients will notice a reduction in their fat within three to four weeks. Outcomes can be improved with subsequent CoolSculpting sessions.

What is the recovery time for liposuction on thighs?

We perform Thigh Liposuction with tumescent liposuction and local anesthetic. This keeps patients comfortable and enables them to return to their day feeling alert following treatment. Our gentle fat removal methods reduce bleeding and post-procedure swelling.

  • Any swelling and sensitivity is normal and will diminish within the first weeks of recovery. We will discuss methods of relieving post-procedure discomfort with you.
  • You will be able to return to work within a few days. Low impact exercise can be resumed within a week, but high impact exercises like running should be avoided until two to three weeks following thigh liposuction.
  • As a precaution, patients should not drive themselves home following thigh liposuction. We recommend that you ask a friend or family member to drive you home after your procedure.
  • You will immediately notice an improvement in the shape and size of your thighs following your procedure. A compression garment will need to be worn to help control swelling and help your thighs take shape to their new contours. Results will continue to improve as swelling diminishes.

Once recovered, you will be able to wear whatever you want and show off your thigh gap!

What is the recovery like after CoolSculpting?

No downtime is required after CoolSculpting! There are no restrictions following CoolSculpting for Thighs: you will be able to return comfortably to work immediately after your treatment.

Patients may experience soreness or numbness in the treated area. Some patients experience delayed onset pain three to four days after receiving CoolSculpting, but this is rare. If this occurs call your provider for treatment recommendations.

Is CoolSculpting or Liposuction better for getting rid of thigh fat?

The type of treatment you choose to lose thigh fat will depend on your body and your goals. We achieve slim, sculpted thighs with both procedures. The method you receive will reflect the needs of your unique thighs and your personal preferences!

Thigh liposuction has the benefit of only requiring one treatment. You will notice significant results right away. Houston Lipo Center’s Laser Liposuction techniques will dramatically reduce recovery times. You will be back to work in a few days!

CoolSculpting will help you lose thigh fat, without a single incision. Get slimmer, sexier thighs, while your body gets rid of your fat for you! CoolSculpting can require multiple sessions to achieve desired results but can be a convenient, welcome option for patients with busy schedules.
