About Thigh Liposuction in Philadelphia, PA
Many patients are frustrated by the lack of fat loss in their thighs. In most cases, fat stays in the body due to an unhealthy diet and a sedentary lifestyle. However, for some patients, despite regular exercise and consuming a healthy diet, the fat in their thighs simply will not budge.
This can be due to aging, hormones, or a genetic predisposition to store fat in the thigh area. This can also make it difficult to achieve slim and toned legs. Dr. Durvi Patel offers thigh liposuction in Philadelphia, PA for patients who need help getting rid of the excess fat in their thighs.
Why is Thigh Liposuction Necessary?
Liposuction on thigh is a popular procedure for many reasons. Patients seek out Dr. Patel’s help in removing fat from their inner and outer thigh to improve the shape of their thighs and permanently remove fat cells in that area.
Women who suffer from “chub rub” or “saddlebags” often seek out thigh liposuction. Chub rub is when the inner thighs rub together when you walk and saddlebags are fat deposits on the outer thighs. Dr. Patel can even create a thigh gap with thigh lipo.
It is important to note that liposuction on thigh is not a substitute for weight loss. If you are overweight and your goal is to be smaller overall, you should consider diet and exercise before this procedure.
Dr. Patel uses SmartLipo™ to remove fat from the inner and outer thighs. This type of liposuction offers patients a faster recovery, more precise fat targeting, less bleeding, and less bruising. To learn more about all of our SmartLipo services, see SmartLipo.
Inner Thigh Liposuction
Thigh liposuction on the inner thigh is on the rise because of the many benefits it offers patients. Dr. Patel can help patients achieve a thigh gap, a highly desired feature many women want. Inner thigh lipo will also help enhance the silhouette of the thigh, making the leg appear more toned.
Inner thigh liposuction is also popular because it can eliminate chub rub, a condition many people with large thighs often face. It leads to skin irritation and even open sores for some. Reducing this uncomfortable chafing and irritation can improve the lives of active people.
Excess fat on the inner thighs can also make it difficult to move comfortably, especially if you lead an active lifestyle. Liposuction on thigh can help to remove this excess fat and improve overall mobility and range of motion.
Outer Thigh Liposuction
Women often need liposuction on the outer thigh due to the pockets of stubborn fat that accumulate there. As women age, their saddlebags may get worse as their metabolism slows down. Even dieting and exercise isn’t guaranteed to reduce the amount of fat located here. Saddlebags can make it difficult to buy pants that fit right. Large outer thighs and clothing that does not fit can make it hard to feel confident in your own skin.
SmartLipo™ is a great procedure to address this problem area. It can trim down the hips and outer thighs to create a natural contour. The benefit of using laser lipo is that it will also tighten the skin as it removes the fat. This can help prevent sagging. Patients can have bodies that appear proportioned and are able to buy clothing that fits, especially pants.
