Send your Saddlebags Packing, Permanently and Enjoy Slimmer Thighs
Thunder thighs always did have a negative connotation. Unfortunately, many people have extra saddlebags that swish and rub when walking. Thighs can be an embarrassing source for many woman – and men. Getting rid of the extra pockets of fat and dimpling in the thigh area can be impossible, even with diet and exercise.
A Tumescent Liposuction technique called Thigh Liposculpting is the answer to eliminate saddlebags, lose the thunder thighs and gain self confidence. Tumescent liposuction is a safe procedure the will permanently remove the fat from the inner and outer thighs and contour the upper legs and thigh area. This procedure produces optimum results – achieving smaller, more defined and shapely thighs and legs.
Thigh Liposculpture is the safest, fastest way to the appealing thighs and to a newly enhanced you! The Tumescent procedure only requires a localized anesthetic, used to numb the targeted area, so the patient is awake and coherent throughout the procedure, feeling no pain. Only two small incisions are made to insert the 3mm cannula laser instrument, which gently melts away and vacuums the fat, while tightening the skin around both thighs. Through the 3mm incisions, the surgeon slowly guides the cannula to the targeted areas to remove the excess fat with precision and resulting in less pain, bruising and downtime for the patient, after the surgery.
All procedures are performed on site at our state-of-the-art clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona. Again, Tumescent Liposuction is the safest alternative to traditional liposuction. Here are some other advantages to Thigh Liposuction/Liposculpting:
- This procedure is permanent. Once the surgery is completed, the fat in that area will not come back.
- Thigh Liposculpting produces noticeable and immediate results, especially since thighs are like a storage site for fatty deposits. The surgery leaves patients ecstatic because they trade in the jiggle for firmer thighs and better fitting clothes
- The surgery only lasts about one hour. Thigh Liposculpture removes the fat and tightens the skin in that area. Because the patient is awake, he or she can actually see the results of the surgery before leaving the office.
- This is the best part: Patients return to normal activities and work within 24 to 48 hours, because the recovery and healing process is quick and virtually pain-free.
- In addition, there is little chance for scarring. The incisions for the surgery also heal within a couple of days, then blend into the natural skin tone.
Why choose Thigh Liposculpting?
The answer is easy. If your self-image could be improved by removing unwanted saddlebags, then this elective surgery is right for you. You will experience better fitting clothes, improved confidence, tighter skin, and a more youthful shape. These are just some of the reasons our patients choose to undergo thigh reduction. The Tumescent Liposculpting reduces the circumference of the thighs, smoothes out lumps, and restores proportion to the body – best of all, the results are permanent.
What is the procedure like?
The safe, simple Liposculpture procedure is performed in our offices - under local anesthesia, and all patients remain awake and alert. First, the skin is numbed and two small incisions are placed on both the inner and outer thigh. Using gentle suction, fat is removed using a gently vibrating cannula, the straw-like vacuum instrument. The cannula itself is only 3mm wide. Because it is so small, scarring is not an issue. The procedure lasts about one hour, and patients walk out of the office with newfound confidence.
Am I a good candidate for Thigh Liposuction?
People that have had issues with bulging thighs are generally good candidates. Tumescent liposuction of the thigh is a safe procedure for people – mostly women, who have a high accumulation of fatty deposits in the thigh region. Women over the age of 60, or women who have had a gastric bypass or lost over 100 pounds may need to take extra precautions and may wish to consider further skin-tightening procedures for loose or lax skin. Men are rarely good candidates for this procedure since they don’t normally accumulate fat around the thighs. If you cannot comfortably pinch more than a quarter of an inch of fat from the thigh, you will not greatly benefit from this procedure. This procedure is recommended for people that have fatty deposits and flab that does not respond to exercise or diet.
Do I need to do both inner and outer thighs or can I choose only one?
You may choose to do either the inner or outer thighs, though most women choose to have both areas treated. Many women experience fat accumulation around the entire thigh.
Will a thigh reduction get rid of my cellulite?
Perhaps, in some cases cellulite will disappear. Cellulite deposits are determined by each person’s individual genetics – even young, thin women can have cellulite. Although some patients report an improvement in cellulite deposits, Liposculpture of the thigh will not always eliminate cellulite.
Will I have any scars or sagging skin?
Only one or two small incisions will be visible after Thigh Liposuction and each is only 3 mm wide. These incision marks heal very quickly after the surgery and scarring is usually not an issue, because they are so small and they fade to the blend into the natural color of the skin.
People below the age of 60 with good skin tone will not experience sagging skin after the surgery, which is another benefit of the Tumescent liposuction technique. This procedure is designed to promote skin tightening as the fat is removed. Unless your skin is already very thin, wrinkled, or lax due to aging or dramatic weight loss, you will usually see an improvement in skin tone and firmness. Older patients and people who experience considerable weight loss actually pursue Tumescent liposuction as a solution to sagging, flabby skin. Liposculpture is designed to promote skin-tightening and restore collagen. Unless your skin is already very thin, wrinkled, or lax due to aging or dramatic weight loss, you will usually see an improvement in skin tone and firmness.
What are the post-surgery expectations for recovery?
Because Tumescent Liposuction is such a safe and targeted procedure that utilizes refined instruments to perform the surgery, the side effects are minimal and any discomfort or mild soreness goes away within a day or two. There are no stitches and the tiny puncture wounds heal within two days. Patients may have mild discomfort and perhaps some light bruising, but they can walk, resume normal activities and return to work within 24 to 48 hours. Each patient is required to wear a compression, under garment around the surgical area for three days and nights, and for at least eight hours a day for two weeks. The garment is very similar to an Ace bandage and it is easy to wrap and unwrap and is not noticeable under clothing.
There may be some slight swelling in the area after the procedure, which will subside after the Tumescent solution is absorbed and eliminated through the body, but there is no pain associated with this healing process. Great results are visible within a month or two and all final results within six months.
