Inner Thigh Liposuction

Inner Thigh Liposuction

A frequent complaint of patients seeking inner thigh liposuction is that the thighs rub together or are too bulky.

Inner thigh smart liposuction is a useful tool to remedie that problem.

Incisions of Inner thigh Liposuction:

Two to Three incisions  are typically required for inner thigh liposuction.  One will be in the groin area, one in the posterior gluteal fold, and the third incision is optional in some cases but goes down below the knee area.

I subdivide my approach to the inner thigh region into what i consider “mild to moderate upper thigh lipo only” versus
more agressive medial inner thigh down to medial knee” approach.  The approaches each has advantages and disadvantages.

in the first case (“mild to moderate”), I am seeking to eliminate a specific bulge, but not thin out the inner thigh beyond the thickness of of the whole thigh.  In this case, the top two incisions suffice, and the advantages is that it will not be a major fat redistribution compared to the second case, ie, the volumes are smaller.  In the second case, the patient is trying to slim the whole leg.  I find that unless I treat the medial knee region, I will get a “step off” where the upper inner thigh becomes smaller than the medial knee.  This is specially true if the patient starts regaining the weight, and the body starts putting it right below where the surgeon stopped.

Pricing of the inner Thigh Liposuction:

Typically we run specials, which can be found by clicking here.  The cost depends on the areas being treated and the size of the patient.  We find that our costs end up being very competitive when compared to other centers that employ non-board certified patients .  CLICK HERE to see our brand new Price Match Guarantee!

In most patients (other than extreme sizes) I typically will treat the inner thigh region from the groin to the knee and include the infragluteal fold area as well. This is the “agressive” approach described above, which most of my patients choose.   Therefore, my “one area” price is as much as other surgeons charge for “three areas”.  My goal always is to obtain the best results possible.  I treat laser liposuction as an artistic endeavor and my aim is to offer you a treatment that will maximize the aesthetic results. The fee includes a garment that you will need to wear to maximize results.

Recovery Period:

People return to work in 24-48 hours.  people return to exercise in 4-5 days, consisting of mainly walking.

results can be seen in two weeks, but I tell my patients to give their bodies about six weeks of healing time before any major vacations or occasions.  Out of all areas we treat, smartlipo of the inner thighs is one region where the swelling persists more than other regions.  This is because both of the volumes aspirated, and the dependent (ie, hanging) position of the leg.  For a generalized recovery timeline, click here

Skin Retraction of the Inner thighs:

The skin in the inner thigh is sometimes loose.  This is because this region in most people bounces up and down with weight gain and weight loss.  I will give you my opinion on how the skin quality will react.  paradoxically, conservative laser lipo treatment will often lead to better results  than full out aggressive treatment in the inner thighs.  This is the main reason I will sometime recomend my “mild” approach.  This way we can change shape without getting into skin retraction issues.  A bit of fat left beneath the inner thigh region contributes to a youthful look.

The one mistake my patients make when self-evaluating for inner thigh liposuction is they place their hand beneath their buttocks and pull upwards on the skin to show me the results they desire.  Unfortunately, this mimmicks a thigh lift, and overestimates the degree of skin smoothness and thightness that is possible with smartlipo.  Therefore, meeting with a physician that performs a lot of these will be your best way to estimate what kinds of results you would get.   You will get more change in shape than you will get tightening of the skin.
