Tired of having “thunder thighs?” Fat thighs can look unflattering, especially in skinny jeans and tights. If the extra fat on your thighs is preventing you from looking your best in your fashionable outfits, then maybe it’s about time to think about liposuction with Avalon Lipo & Aesthetics.
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.
Please continue reading to learn more about each procedure or watch the video below in which Dr. Tirgari discusses liposuction of the thighs. You can also call our office in Carlsbad or San Diego with questions: 619-727-4495.
Getting Started with Thigh Contouring
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 remain smooth even after removing some fat deposits 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 on 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.
Recovery from Thigh Liposuction
Dr. Tirgari will be scheduling you for a follow-up visit to ensure that the incisions are healing normally, and there are no complications after the surgery. You can still perform your basic activities at home, but it is recommended that someone drive you home after leaving the clinic.
There will also be some minimal swelling on the thighs, but this will resolve after several days and the results will be noticeable right away. You will not have any large incisions or stitches; therefore, you will not have to worry about scaring. During your recovery, you may be asked to wear surgical garments that will help you heal faster and tighten the skin for even better post-treatment results. Our entire team will be standing by to assist you as you recover. In fact, our doctor will be available to you any time of the day should you feel the need to give him a call.
This procedure is recommended for clients who are close to their ideal body weight but are having difficulty in targeting the fat deposits on their thighs by exercising or dieting. It is not advisable for obese people and or those who are suffering from serious illnesses of the heart. You can inform Dr. Tirgari of all your health conditions during your initial consultation so he can further assess your qualification to undergo this procedure.
