Liposuction of the Legs and Hips

Liposuction of the legs and thighs is one of the few really effective methods for removing excess fat from this part of the body and restoring their aesthetic appeal. Excess fat on the hips and legs is a very serious problem. It makes one refuse to go to the beach and wear short clothes, have complexes and feel uncomfortable, as if being in someone else’s body. Even more, the emotional and psychological state is affected by the fact that coping with “fat traps” using physical training and diets does not work. Do not reproach yourselves – the appearance of “fat traps” is associated with the genetic predisposition of the body, and the right decision is to turn to a plastic surgeon.

At present, aesthetic cosmetology offers various methods of non-surgical fat removal, and medical centers offer various methods of liposuction: vibrational, laser, radio-frequency, ultrasound. But the medical scientific community recommends classical surgical liposuction. It has the following advantages:

6 Steps: How is the Surgery for Removing Fat from the Legs Performed

In the surgery for removing fat from the legs and thighs, 6 main steps can be distinguished:

  1. Preliminary consultation and preparation for the surgery;
  2. Marking the areas to be corrected during the surgery – the surgeon virtually puts marks on the body with a marker, on which he will work;
  3. Treating the skin with an anesthetic and introducing anesthesia. The type of anesthesia is selected with the participation of a professional anesthesiologist, typically it is local anesthesia;
  4. Introducing a liquid that will soften the fat tissue and facilitate the surgery;
  5. Making incisions, entering cannulas, special surgical tubes, in them. They are connected to a vacuum suction, using which fat is removed;
  6. Closing the incisions using self-absorbable sutures.

The duration of the surgery depends on the number and size of areas that require correction, and the volumes of fat deposits.

Rehabilitation and Postoperative Care

You can go home immediately after the surgery, although we recommend staying one night in a comfortable hospital for observation. Then there are restrictions on food and bad habits, certain activities (you cannot visit the sauna, swimming pool, take hot bath). In the third day it is necessary to start physical activity. It is recommended to wear, during the entire rehabilitation period, compression underwear. Your surgeon will tell you more about the features of recovery.
