Liposuction of the outer thighs

Outer Thigh Liposuction, Dennis Dass, MD
The outer thigh is a common area of concern for women in Los Angeles. Women often complain of the outer thighs being too large. This results in a not so flattering figure when wearing certain dresses and form-fitting clothes. Larger thighs can also make it difficult to find pants or jeans that fit well. Liposuction is an excellent way to sculpt the outer thighs. This is when patients may consider outer thighs liposuction in Beverly Hills.

Who is a candidate for outer thigh liposuction?

  • Good candidates for outer thigh liposuction have excess fat localized to the outer thighs and have good skin without irregularities.
  • Men and women who are unhappy with the appearance of their thighs and hips may find this procedure beneficial.
  • Women who have loose skin, or have lost a lot of weight might be better candidates for a lower body lift in which a tummy tuck incision is extended circumferentially resulting in a lift to the outer thighs.

What is involved in outer thighs and hips liposuction?

Surgery requires just a couple of small 3mm incisions that hide very well and tend to be unnoticeable. Multiple incisions are usually necessary to create an even result.

Women who get liposuction to treat the outer thighs, often also get liposuction of the inner thighs, banana rolls (area under the buttock) and 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 improve the way the skin looks. Since the legs are nearly always below the level of your heart, it is important to keep your legs elevated whenever you are not standing, to reduce the amount of swelling in the legs during the recovery period. There is minimal discomfort after liposuction of the outer thighs.

    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.*
