Most of us have dreamed of having legs like a supermodel, but, unfortunately, achieving these results on your own through exercise and diet alone is nearly impossible. This is where liposuction comes into play. With the help of Dr. Nir and his staff at Palms Wellington Plastic Surgery in the West Palm Beach area, you too can have the legs you have always wanted.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Leg Liposuction?
The ideal candidates for liposuction on the legs are those in good health whose skin has enough elasticity to take on the new leg shape without appearing loose. Those with poor blood circulation, diabetes or a weakened immune system should generally not undergo this procedure.
Types of Leg Lipo
The most common spot on the legs where the procedure is requested is on the thigh. The thigh is broken down into three sections:
- Inner thighs
- Outer thighs
- Anterior (frontal) thighs
Many patients will only require liposuction on one of these sections. Before your surgery, you will meet with our doctor for a complete physical. During this appointment, he can determine what must be done in order to achieve your desired results. If needed, more than one section on your thigh can be worked on during the procedure. It all depends on the unique case.
Again, you will meet with our surgeon to come up with a plan for liposuction on your legs. This is when our doctor will determine which portion of your leg could benefit from the procedure. Often, liposuction on the legs will be combined with other procedures. Regardless of the techniques used, the procedure will be customized based on the patient’s wants and needs.
