Liposuction of the thighs
One of the common complaints is the stubborn fat that can cause the inner thighs to rub against one another. Chafing can easily result from this fat, making it uncomfortable to walk and exercise. In general, women are more interested in liposuction of the thighs than men. Female hormones cause excess storage of fat around the inner thighs, knees, and on the outer thighs. The excess fat in men is stored in their abdominal area, not their thighs. At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin we remove excess thigh fat with VASER liposuction. This can provide your legs and hips with a better-proportioned contour.
For many, the answer to thigh fat problem is liposuction with VASER. The thighs response to fat removal with VASER is better than otherwise achieved with traditional liposuction. This is due of the ability of the VASER technology to tighten and contract the skin for an even contour.
The best results are seen in patients who are at or close to their correct body weight and in good overall health. This procedure should be avoided by people with a weakened immune system, diabetes, or poor blood circulation. Liposuction with VASER on the thighs is more effective for individuals with enough elasticity in their thighs to retract well after the procedure.
When excess fat is located on the outer thighs, it is referred to as saddlebags. Outer thigh saddlebags can cause the thighs to appear disproportionate or short. Liposuction of the outer thigh saddlebags result in the restoration of well-contoured and proportionate thighs.
When a a woman gets liposuction done, her skin should wrap around her leg in an even smooth contour. This feminine shape sculpting maintain your feminine leg shape and help to eliminate any unwanted bulges. Thigh liposuction VASER can be performed on the saddlebags, the inner thighs area, or a combination of both. Saddlebags are the outer area of the thighs. The use of liposuction on the thigh’s front region is usually avoided.

During your consultation with Dr Kahlout, he will explain in detail the thigh liposuction VASER procedure. He will also determine if you are the right candidate for liposuction of the thighs. The consultation includes a medical assessment, estimate of the amount of surplus fat, and evaluation of skin firmness, and elasticity, and elasticity.

The abdominal liposuction is performed under local anaesthesia using a wetting tumescent solution. “Tumescent” solution is a mix of local anaesthesia in buffered normal saline salt water. Its injected into fatty tissue areas under the skin. Our surgeon then targets the hydrated fat with the VASER ultrasonic energy which emulsifies hard fat into smoothie like consistency. This makes it ready for gentle removal with a straw like tube called a cannula which is attached to negative pressure suction canister. The doctor moves the cannula back and forth in gentle and calculated motion to uniformly suction out the fat. The procedure takes a couple of hours.
Safer Option to Traditional Liposuction
Typical liposuction aggressively removes fat, which can damage surrounding tissues and impose a longer recovery period. VASER Lipo is tissue-selective, meaning it can specifically target fat, while protecting nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues from damage. As a result, patients experience minimal pain and bruising and a quick return to normal activities.
Results & Recovery
Recovery vary with the extensiveness of the procedure. Everyone is different in their response to physical remval of fat. Age, health status as well as the amount of fat removed, and the number of sites treated, play a factor.
After the procedure, the tiny wounds are left open to leak out any excess fluid. Seepage of surplus fat and fluid continues for 2-3 days. Its a welcome phenomenon and considered healthy. After all we don’t want that unwanted exudate to stay in our bodies. The wounds are dressed with sterile gauze and patients wear a compression garment. Custom-made garments are worn for three to four weeks.
In the initial recovery period mild discomfort and bruising may be experienced. Its short lived for a few days and at most up to two weeks. Associated swelling sets in within a week and gradually decrease over the next four to six weeks.
We highly recommend working with a lymphatic massage therapist to help ensure the best possible outcome after surgery. This post-operative massage is valuable to maximise your results and will start on day three post-op.
Patients are advised to mobilise early and return to normal daily activity within a couple of days. In general the full effect of liposuction gets better over-time and is seen four months after the procedure is performed.
Most patients at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin report that they see results immediately after the procedure. Patients recovery continue to further improve, and skin tightens over the next 4-6 months later.
