Thigh liposuction is just one of many options available to help get rid of unwanted fat from certain areas of your body. Whether you have an inner thigh problem area or the dreaded saddlebags that a lot of women carry around especially after having children there are procedures that can help you deal with these problem areas effectively.
Liposuction is geared to redefining specific body parts that are unresponsive to traditional methods of trying to thin down. New technologies and techniques allow for a more refined end result and faster recovery.
The first step is to find a physician who specializes in the area or areas you want worked on. Ask friends or family you know who have had work done who did their work and if they would recommend that physician. If they did not have the same procedure done that you want then find a physician that specializes in legs for your thigh liposuction procedure. Ask him how many surgeries of this type he has performed and request to see photos of previous patients’ results.
Ask your physician exactly what technique he will use for the surgery. There is the traditional liposuction method where an incision is made and the fat tissue is suctioned out, or laser liposuction which only requires a very small incision and ultrasound liposuction in which sound waves are used to dissolve large amounts of fatty tissue before it is removed.
Request a consultation and talk about the results you are looking for. Your doctor should then take some time and make a plan specific to you based on your consultation. After your initial consultation, your physician will tell you whether or not they think you are a good candidate to have the surgery.
Before your appointment make a list of questions you want to ask so you get the information you need to make an informed decision. Discuss things like what you expect from the physician, what procedures do they offer and what procedure is right for you.
You will then need to make an appointment to get a history and physical evaluation to make sure you are healthy enough to not only have the surgery but be put under anesthesia if it is called for. Bring a list of any and all medications with you to this appointment. Make sure to discuss all medical conditions, including allergies to medications, you have just in case one of them will affect the outcome of your surgery.
Liposuction techniques have evolved to become safer than they used to be. Though there still are risks involved they are minimal compared to what they were 30 years ago. Talk about the risk factors and if the benefits outweigh the risks then go ahead and have the surgery.
If you chose your physician well then you can feel confident that you can put your body in his hands and all will turn out well in the end. The results can be life-altering, giving you a new found confidence knowing that with the help of thigh liposuction you now look your best.
