Medial Thigh Liposuction: Liposuction of the inner thighs

Posted By

Dr Dass describes Inner Thighs Los Angeles
The inner thigh is a common area of concern for women in Los Angeles. Women often complain of the inner thighs rubbing together when walking, which can cause discomfort, irritation, and an unpleasant sound when the clothes rub together. Larger thighs can also make it difficult to find pants or jeans that fit well. Liposuction of the inner thighs is an excellent way to sculpt the inner thighs.

Good candidates for inner thigh liposuction have excess fat localized to the inner thighs and have good quality skin. Women who have loose skin, or have lost a lot of weight might be better candidates for a medial thigh lift, but this can only be determined by a consultation with a plastic surgeon.

Surgery requires just one small 2mm incision in the groin that hides very well. This incision allows the surgeon to remove the fat from the anterior (front aspect) of the inner thigh. Additionally, a small incision will often need to be placed on the back, in the buttock crease, which allows liposuction of the posterior (back aspect) of the inner thigh. Performing liposuction from the front and the back allows complete treatment of this difficult area.

Women, who get liposuction to treat the inner thighs, often also get liposuction of the inner knees. This improves the overall contour of the legs and creates a very smooth transition. During the recovery, you will need to wear a garment that applies compression to the legs. This is worn all the time, preferably for about four to six weeks. The compression garment helps to limit the swelling and also improve the way the skin looks on the medial thighs. Since the legs are nearly always in the dependent position, it is important to keep your legs elevated whenever you are not standing, to reduce the amount of swelling in the legs. There is minimal discomfort after liposuction of the inner thighs.

Dr. Dennis Dass is a board certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, that specializes in liposuction.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
