Thigh Liposuction

Fat located in the thighs is oftentimes the most difficult to get rid of with conventional diet and exercise. The fat cells in the thighs are usually the most stubborn part of the body and tend to take longer than other parts to burn away.

These fatty parts might be less visible than other parts of the body, but after the liposuction you will be able to see a very satisfactory difference as the thighs will appear way more attractive.

Reasons for Revision Liposuction

Failure to distribute fat evenly

If liposuction is not performed correctly on your skin, some areas on your skin may either shrivel up or get swollen. Areas with less fat can always be treated with additional fat transfers, and areas with extra fat can be treated with more liposuction.

No size change after liposuction

After the initial surgery, if liposuction was not performed correctly, a small amount of fat may reaccumulate at the liposuctioned area. The area where the medical cannula was present during the first surgery often goes through the process of fibrosis. As a result, an extra removal of fat in the same area may be recommended during the revision surgery.

If there is a dent present in the surgical site

After liposuction, minor adhesions between the skin and muscles may be formed, creating a dent on skin. Depending on the intensity of adhesion, it is important to prevent side effects such as inflammation, which can always be improved through a small correction surgery.

Skin sagging or stretching after the surgery

Failure to consider skin shrinkage may lead to sagging skin. It is important to perform liposuction carefully, taking into account the superficial fat right under the skin. If the patient has thin and nonelastic skin, additional lifting procedures may help improve the condition.

Precautions After Liposuction Surgery

  • Avoid alcohol and cigarettes for a month.
  • Make sure to wear a compression suit for a month around the liposuctioned area.
  • Light workouts are possible after one week, but visiting a sauna is only possible after about 2 weeks.
  • Swollen and bruised areas will be recovered by 50-80% in about 2 weeks; however, it may take them up to 3-6 months to disappear completely.
  • The sensation at the surgical site varies from person to person, but it recovers quickly and gradually.
