The diameter and width of your thighs contours can project an attractive shape. However, even if you are an optimal weight, some patients, particularly women, may have thighs that are out of proportion with the rest of their body. They may have chafing of their inner thigh bulges when they walk or exercise, other patients may exhibit “saddle-bags “of the outer thighs that prevent them from fitting comfortably into their clothes. People often cannot reduce the width of their thighs despite vigorous exercise and dietary control. Doctor Kopelman offers a variety of treatment options for thigh contouring.There are surgical and non-surgical procedures at Kopelman Aesthetic Surgery that specifically target fat thighs.The goal is to restore your youthful contours and enable you to wear jeans, skirts, and bathing garments without being self-conscious.
Liposuction is the “gold standard” procedure to contour your thighs. If you have dieted and exercised and there are still stubborn areas of fat that will not go away then liposuction may be a good choice for you. It is not a weight loss program and is not a replacement for a balanced diet and a regular exercise program. In fact, liposuction can contour your thighs to allow you to look slimmer but if you want to maintain the beneficial effects of liposuction you must continue to exercise and eat a balanced diet.
Q: What liposuction technique does Doctor Kopelman use?
A: Dr.Kopelman uses “tumescent liposuction” contouring technique that utilizes a dilute mixture of water and salt to anesthetize the inner and outer thighs.This will ensure that you will have very little discomfort during or after your procedure and will facilitate the removal of fat. Dr. Kopelman will then gently extract unwanted fat cells from your thighs using small metal cannulas inserted through minute incisions.
Q: Who are the best candidates for tumescent liposuction of the thighs?
A: Ideal candidates for tumescent liposuction are people in good health, possess firm, elastic skin, are modestly overweight and have realistic expectations about the benefits of the procedure.
