Thighs – Liposuction

Many women tend to accumulate excess fat around the hips, thighs and buttocks. This occurs as they age and in some cases is an inherited trait that begins to show up at puberty. Diet and exercise can reduce the overall size of this inter-connected area, but the proportion of fat distribution remains in place. Board certified plastic surgeon and liposuction specialist, Dr. Sean Younai sees hundreds of women each year who have decided to finally rid themselves of the bottom heavy image this problem creates, with effective and beautiful thigh liposuction in Beverly Hills.

Things to Know About Thigh Liposuction

The thighs, along with the hips and buttocks, define the feminine form. It isn’t possible to have a smooth sexy profile by spot treating only one area of the thighs. This area must be treated by a top liposuction surgeon in Beverly Hills or Los Angeles, who can seamlessly treat the correct combination of areas to attain the feminine shape.

The thighs are most successfully treated in relation to the adjacent area. The outer thighs should be treated with the hips to blend those two areas properly. The inner thighs should be treated with the anterior or front area of the thighs and if necessary, the inner portion of the knees. These procedures should be performed at least a month apart to allow the first stage to fully settle. This avoids under or over treating an area which results in very unsatisfactory results. In fact, Dr. Younai is very often consulted by patients who wish him to perform revision liposuction surgery. His technical skill, along with this innate artistic sense allows him to visualize the final outcome, flawlessly blending one body area into the next.

Best Candidates for Thigh Liposuction

It is important that women wishing to reduce the size of their thighs have stabilized their weight to ensure long lasting results. As in any elective surgery, candidates should be in good health with no uncontrolled medical conditions. Good skin elasticity is important to avoid the wrinkling that can occur when fat is removed from the inner thighs and knees. A vital component to successful cosmetic surgery is the communication between doctor and patient. Dr. Younai’s philosophy is that his ears are almost as important as his hands. He places much emphasis on truly understanding his patient’s image goals and offers recommendations based on their goals and his technical expertise. The result is thousands of delighted patients who have moved forward with their lives with renewed confidence and self respect due to receiving top-of-the-line thigh liposuction in Los Angeles.

Procedure & Recovery

Dr. Younai uses the tumescent liposuction surgery method. This method is preferred among board certified plastic surgeons due to its safety record and ability to provide profound anesthesia for patients lasting up to 24 hours. The method allows for local anesthetic to be used, making patient recovery easier and removing one of the risks of surgery; general anesthesia.

Once the patient is comfortable and the local anesthetic has taken effect, tiny micro incisions are made into strategic areas and the special fluid is injected. The area becomes tumescent, or swollen, and the work begins.

The use of a micro cannula is important in sculpting the thighs so they blend perfectly with the hips and lower leg. The cannula is the steel tube used to break up and remove the fat. A large cannula does not provide the ability to micro manage the removal of fat which can result in irregularities in skin texture. The tiny entry points are left open so that the blood tinged fluid can drain over the next few days. There is very little blood loss with the tumescent method and leaving the area open to drain, ensures that there is much less bruising and swelling for patients to contend with. At the conclusion of surgery, absorbent pads are place on the incision sites and a compression garment is placed over the area. This is a vital part of the process in that it helps the skin to reconnect with the new contours formed by Dr. Younai during the thigh liposuction surgery in Los Angeles.

Following thigh liposuction, patients may be groggy until the next day and will feel more tired than usual for several days. The compression garment can be removed after two days to allow showering but must be worn constantly per Dr. Younai’s instructions. Vaseline or other heavy skin cream must be applied to the liposuctioned area to relieve itching. Massage is important to the final outcome and patients are encouraged to deeply massage the area 3 times a day for 5 to 6 weeks. Full instructions are provided upon discharge and Dr. Younai’s staff is always available to answer questions and help patients through the recovery period.
