Liposuction on the legs is mainly performed on women. This may involve removing the excess fat in the inner and/or outer thigh, calf, and/or knee to create a straighter and more feminine leg contour. Our surgeon at Palms Wellington Plastic Surgery can use meticulous techniques to deliver natural-looking and smooth results.
During the consultation, you should be able to describe your goals in detail. At the same time, our doctor will conduct a physical exam to determine if your expectations are in line with what the surgery can realistically accomplish. Your skin elasticity, fat distribution, and other anatomies will determine the ideal techniques.
We will also ask you about your medical history, medications (including supplements and vitamins), previous surgeries, drug allergies, and tobacco/alcohol use. Never omit or hide such information to ensure the safety of your surgery.
Preparation for Liposuction
When you are deemed fit for liposuction on the legs, if necessary, our doctor may recommend complete smoking cessation and discontinuation of blood-thinners such as aspirin and ibuprofen for a few weeks before your surgery. The aim of preparation is to achieve your optimal health prior to surgery to enjoy a short recovery and the best aesthetic results possible.
During the Procedure
Liposuction on the legs may involve a number of different techniques. To promote gentle fat extraction, our doctor will utilize skillful measures to help you achieve your goals for your thighs.
Once the fatty tissue is fully removed, you can move forward with your recovery.
Newer liposuction techniques have significantly reduced the amount of surgical trauma. This has lessened the amount of downtime. Of course, recovery time varies from patient to patient based on a number of factors.
Once the fat has been removed, it will never come back provided that you’re able to maintain a healthy weight or at least avoid large weight gain through regular exercise and a healthy diet.
