The Art and Science of Thigh Liposuction: A Surgeon’s Perspective

Dr.An is here to share his insights on the intricacies of fat loss, the ideal thigh shape, and the artistry involved in thigh liposuction.

The Journey of Fat Loss

“When you go on a diet, what is the last part of your body to lose weight? It might vary from person to person, but there is actually an order in which fat is lost: face, chest, belly, arms, buttocks, thighs, and calves,” he explains. This is due to the fact that the lower body has poorer blood circulation and metabolism than the upper body. Also, the face and upper body have more densely packed muscles than fat.

The Quest for the Ideal Thigh Shape

“Most people prefer the shape of Type B, where the inner thighs do not touch,” he says. However, if you’ve tried dieting, you’ll know that it’s not easy to lose fat from the inner thighs. This is the last area to lose weight after all other areas have slimmed down.

The Limitations of Exercise

While exercise can make your thighs overall more muscular and firm, our expert can’t agree that it will specifically make you lose fat. This is where the science of liposuction comes into play.

The Art of Thigh Liposuction

Thigh liposuction is not just a medical procedure, it’s an art form. It requires a keen eye for aesthetics, a steady hand, and a deep understanding of the human body.


“Typically, when you get thigh liposuction, you have to make at least two holes in the upper thigh. But if you do it this way, you will have visible scars, and it will be obvious that you had surgery, which can be upsetting,” he explains. However, surgery scars cannot be avoided. But if there is only one scar in a place where it’s not visible, it would be dramatically better. Where is that place? Try to guess. The answer is the tailbone area or the navel.

“The skin on the inner thighs is very thin, similar to the thickness of facial skin. So if unevenness occurs, it shows up very well compared to other parts,” he warns. This really depends on the skill of the surgeon who performs the surgery.

Skin Elasticity

“Even if the skin elasticity decreases, it is difficult for the line to become smooth,” he says. Especially in the case of severe obesity, after liposuction on the inner thigh, there may be sagging in that area, so you may need to have surgery that pulls the skin like this.

Design Aesthetic

“The beauty in thigh liposuction is this overall lower body line,” he shares. To create such a beautiful line, you really need to create a line like this softly, like a pose. You need a detail that considers up to this part. You need an artistic sense.

In conclusion, thigh liposuction is a complex procedure that requires both medical expertise and artistic sensibility. It’s not just about removing fat, but sculpting the body to achieve a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing shape.
