Thigh
liposuction

Your excess thigh fat spoils body proportions and makes you feel insecure. We’re ready to fix the problem.

Sleek thighs from all sides, no ‘saddlebags’ and fat deposits, a single aesthetic thigh gap, and proportionally shaped thighs and shins—all of these nuances make your legs look skinnier and attractive. In practice, it’s extremely hard to achieve such results by sticking to healthy diets and working out, while it’s simply impossible in some cases. Thigh liposuction will help the most persistent patients make their legs beautiful.

Liposuction is a machine-assisted procedure which helps destroy and remove excess fat from problem areas using thin tubes (cannulas).

The classic machine-assisted tumescent liposuction technique is used to remove small and medium-sized fat deposits. If large fat deposits (more than 5 litres) need to be removed, surgeons more often use ultrasonic liposuction.

At the consultation, the surgeon diagnoses what areas require correction to make legs slimmer and more attractive:

  • • Inner thigh liposuction eliminates the uncomfortable friction while patients walk, thus saving their skin from abrasions;
  • • Saddlebag liposuction eliminates excess fat deposits on outer thighs, thereby making their lines long with a smoother waistline;
  • • Upper posterior thigh liposuction (usually requires simultaneous buttock liposuction) helps shape a fascinating gluteal crease and remove a double fold.

The procedure can be performed on a single area or several areas (in turn). The duration of surgery depends on the number of areas and the amount of fat to be removed. Patients rather quickly recover from thigh liposuction. The rehabilitation can take from 3 weeks to 2 months.

Our experience

Before

surgery

At the consultation, our expert examines the problem areas: your outer and inner thighs. Also, he/she determines the extent of liposuction. Our expert makes basic recommendations for preparations and orders the necessary tests. During the preoperative evaluation, you have medical tests and undergo various examinations.
During

surgery

Depending on the technique and extent of surgery, liposuction takes from one to three hours. You go under general anaesthesia before such surgery. The doctor makes incisions and removes excess fat deposits using a special liposuction machine.
After

surgery

After surgery, the doctor will put compression garments on you. You’ll spend the first day in a single suite under the constant care of our medical staff at Medical Club Grace. For one and a half to two months, you have to limit your physical activity.

Our approach to thigh liposuction

Excess fat deposits on your thighs most strongly make your body look disproportionate. You can do squats at the gym every day and eat well, but ‘saddlebags’ on your thighs won’t obey you and will keep making them asymmetrical. 

Thigh liposuction is the most efficient way to get rid of ‘saddlebags’. Our experts perform liposuction using various techniques and restore your body’s aesthetic appearance. To make sure you enjoy the best results, we can perform thigh liposuction in conjunction with other procedures.

Q&A

How many fat cells can be removed at a time?

Our experts recommend removing no more than three litres of fat within a single procedure. But it depends, as thigh liposuction takes into account your body fat, weight, and skin condition. If there is too much fat, you may be offered to undergo multistage thigh liposuction. At the consultation, our expert will answer this question in more detail with your body features in mind.

When can I evaluate the results of thigh liposuction?

If you stick to all of our experts’ recommendations, you’ll notice the first results in a month after surgery. You’ll see the final results after two to three months.

Will thigh liposuction help get rid of cellulite?

Our experts are sure that your skin will improve after the thigh liposuction procedure. However, liposuction won’t help get rid of cellulite. The procedure aims to remove traps which are full of adipose tissue. Besides, cellulite isn’t an indication for thigh liposuction.

What is included in the cost of the operation package?

The cost of the operation package includes:
• Preoperative consultations of doctors: anesthesiologist, gynecologist-endocrinologist, surgeon and therapist;
