Thigh Liposculpting

Home | Liposculpting | Thigh Liposculpting

Thigh liposculpting is a cosmetic procedure designed to contour and shape the thighs by targeting localized fat deposits. Dr. Lalezar offers this ultra-precise, high-definition liposculpting technique to remove excess fat, creating a smoother and more defined thigh appearance. By enhancing the contours of the thighs, you can achieve a balanced and proportionate silhouette.

Ultra-Precise Thigh Contouring

Thigh liposculpting is a surgical procedure to selectively remove excess fat from the thighs to enhance their appearance. During the procedure, a small incision is made, and a thin tube, called a cannula, is inserted beneath the skin. Through controlled suction, fat cells are extracted, reshaping the thigh contours. In addition to removing excess fat, high-definition liposculpting also includes ultrasound energy, which can trigger collagen production to tighten the remaining skin, thus helping you achieve firm, contoured thighs.

The Goals of Thigh Liposculpting:

  • Removing excess fat deposits from the thighs
  • Revealing underlying thigh muscle definition, including quadriceps
  • Improving the overall tightness and firmness of the inner and outer thighs
  • Using harvested fat cells to augment other areas, such as the breast or buttocks
  • Helping you better appreciate the results of your workouts

Traditional Liposuction vs. High-Definition Liposculpting

Traditional liposuction and high-definition liposculpting represent two distinct approaches to body contouring. In traditional liposuction, excess fat is suctioned out to create general improvements in body shape. High-definition liposculpting also incorporates advanced ultrasound techniques to target specific fat layers around the thigh muscles, thus revealing and highlighting the underlying muscles. This method also stimulates collagen production, tightening skin and creating a more sculpted and toned appearance.

Achieve Toned & Defined Quadriceps & Hamstrings

With high-definition liposculpting, you can achieve well-defined quadriceps and hamstrings. By precisely targeting and removing excess fat deposits around these muscle groups, the contours of the thighs can be enhanced. Through the combination of fat removal and ultrasound energy, the underlying musculature becomes more visible. This results in a toned, defined, sculpted look that exercise and diet alone may not fully provide.

Unique Benefits of Thigh Liposculpting:

  • Removes extremely targeted fat cells from the thighs
  • Removes fat cells around the musculature to make them look more defined
  • Stimulates collagen production to tighten thigh skin
  • Makes your thighs look firm, tight, and contoured
  • Improves the overall shape of the thighs

Combat Loose & Sagging Skin On The Thighs

High-definition liposculpting not only removes excess thigh fat but also addresses loose and sagging skin. Using ultrasound energy, a process known as neocollagenesis is triggered. This prompts the body to produce new collagen, a protein essential for skin elasticity and firmness. Consequently, the skin tightens over time, diminishing sagging. In contrast, traditional liposuction can result in skin laxity due to the removal of fat without stimulating collagen production, often necessitating additional procedures to address this concern.

Your Recovery Journey

Following thigh liposculpting, you might experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort, which is normal and temporary. Dr. Lalezar’s post-operative guidance includes wearing compression garments to minimize swelling. As your body heals, you’ll notice gradual improvements in your thigh contours, with skin tightening becoming more apparent over time. You can resume most of your daily activities within a few days, but avoid strenuous workouts and heavy lifting for 4 to 6 weeks.

Dr. Lalezar’s Surgical Technique

Your thigh liposculpting experience starts with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Lalezar, during which you’ll discuss your desired outcomes. Dr. Lalezar evaluates your thigh structure and skin elasticity, considering factors like muscle tone and fat distribution. With this in-depth assessment, he curates a surgical plan that may involve high-definition liposculpting, 360 liposuction, and ultrasound-assisted liposuction.

Your thigh liposculpting procedure begins with small incisions placed in the treatment area on the thighs. These incisions allow Dr. Lalezar to insert a thin tube called a cannula beneath the skin. Through controlled movements, the cannula suctions out excess fat, sculpting the thighs’ contours. Furthermore, ultrasound energy is used to heat the underlying tissues and trigger collagen production, helping you achieve firm, taut skin.

Thigh Liposculpting FAQs

Who is an ideal candidate for thigh liposculpting?

The ideal candidate for thigh liposculpting is someone with localized fat deposits in the thighs, good skin elasticity, and realistic expectations about the procedure. They should be in good health and want to enhance the contour and shape of their thighs.

Are there any age restrictions for undergoing thigh liposculpting?

There’s no specific age restriction for thigh liposculpting. However, the candidates should have good skin elasticity and be in good health. Please consult Dr. Lalezar to determine your suitability based on your health, goals, and skin condition.

Can thigh liposculpting be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a thigh lift?

Yes, thigh liposculpting can be combined with other procedures like a thigh lift. This combination can provide enhanced results, addressing both excess fat and sagging skin, leading to a more contoured and toned thigh appearance.

How long can I expect the results of thigh liposculpting to last?

The results of thigh liposculpting are long-lasting, as the removed fat cells don’t regenerate. However, maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle is crucial to preserving the sculpted appearance and preventing the remaining fat deposits from expanding.

What should I expect during the initial consultation for thigh liposculpting?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Lalezar will evaluate your thigh structure, discuss your aesthetic goals, and provide a personalized treatment plan. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions and understand the procedure, recovery, and expected outcomes.
