Plastic surgery should look natural.

Thigh Liposuction San Antonio, TX

Thigh liposuction can get rid of those deposits of fat on your thighs that never seem to go away.

Whether you’ve gone to a lot of work recently to lose a significant amount of weight or whether you’ve always been diligent about staying in shape, you may be familiar with the problem of the thighs.

It’s simple: the thighs are among the most fat-concentrated parts of your body. A cushion of fat is designed to protect the all-important muscles and bones that help you walk. But sometimes that cushion of fat becomes unsightly (as in the ever unpopular saddlebags).

  • Side effects and recovery
  • Cost

Thigh Liposuction Procedure

Depending on the volume to be removed from your thighs and the amount of fat versus loose skin, your surgeon may opt to treat the thigh area with tumescent liposuction alone or in combination with laser liposuction. Inserting a cannula of about 5-6 mm into a small incision, then any skin around the incision can be tightened before sutures are applied.

The whole thigh liposuction procedure generally takes between 1 and 4 hours depending on the size of the area. It can be done under a local or general anesthesia.

Thigh Liposuction Recovery

Patients can expect a recovery within a day with some minimal pain and bruising. Liposuction patients should schedule a day off of work or school the day following the procedure.

Thigh Liposuction Cost

The cost of thigh liposuction will vary between every patient and the extent of fat that will be removed. Specific aesthetic looks or sculpting may cost more or less than others. Dr. Elizabeth Harris will discuss pricing during your evaluation.
