Creating Slim, Toned Thighs for You

The thighs are one of the most common fat storage areas of the body, especially among women. This happens because the body is storing fat on the thighs for added support during pregnancy. Whether you just have given birth or you are having difficulty losing the extra deposits of fat on your outer, inner and anterior thighs, Dr. Tirgari can help you. Thigh liposuction can help you enjoy a boosted sense of self-confidence, giving you the ability to show off your thin frame in the outfits and clothes of your choice. Ready to learn more?

What is Thigh Liposuction?

Once you’ve consulted with Dr. Tirgari, he will assess the amount of fat that can be reduced from the different regions of your thighs. For instance, it is important to ensure that the anterior part of the thighs remains smooth, to enhance the contour of the legs. On the other hand, performing liposuction on the inner thighs can lessen the friction between these surfaces when you are walking, thus providing more comfort.

Lastly, liposuction is done on the outer thighs because they appear to be the most resistant to dieting and exercise. To perform liposuction on any part of the thighs, we use the most advanced SmartLipo technique in combination with tumescent liposuction. Please read the paragraphs below to learn more about this body contouring treatment.

Thighs Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction of the thighs can be done in one to three hours depending on the amount of fat that needs to be reduced. Dr. Tirgari will be giving you a sedative to help you feel relaxed throughout the surgery. He will also be using a local anesthetic on the areas that will be treated, this is known as tumescent liposuction. Dr. Tirgari has trained under the founder of this liposuction technique so you can rest assured you are in good hands.

After that, Dr. Tirgari will start inserting the laser cannula into the incision sites and move the instrument back and forth. The laser aids in breaking up the fat for easy removal. Once the fat deposits are melted, they will be suctioned out from the subcutaneous layer of the skin using the same hand-held suctioning device. You will be given in-office recovery time before you are sent home with your home care regimen plan and post-surgery medications.
