What Patients Need to Know About Inner Thigh Liposuction
One of the more popular areas our Atlanta patients want Smartlipo for is the inner thigh area. Smartlipo for the inner thigh area is ideal for patients who are healthy, within 20-25 pounds of their ideal body weight, and have not been able to achieve the results they desire with regular diet and exercise.
Top Reasons to Get Inner Thigh Lipo
One of the primary complaints we hear from patients who schedule consultations for inner thigh liposuction is the uncomfortable chafing that results from the thighs rubbing together while they walk.
One of the primary benefits of Smartlipo for the inner thighs is that the laser melts and liquifies the fat cells (adipose). During this process, the laser also creates enough heat that is absorbed by the skin, causing the skin to tighten. This added benefit of skin tightening also helps reduce the amount of cellulite around the treated area.
Improved Body Shape
The removal of excess fat from the inner thigh area with Smartlipo can greatly improve the cosmetic appearance of the shape of the thighs. The inner thigh fat removal also has additional body shape benefits including improving the way clothes fit, accentuating other curvy areas of the body, as well as providing a more balanced body silhouette.
Why Smartlipo is the #1 Choice for Inner Thigh Lipo in Atlanta
There are numerous benefits for choosing Smartlipo for inner thigh liposuction versus more traditional liposuction methods.
It’s Minimally Invasive
During a Smartlipo inner thigh procedure a small access puncture about 1/8″ wide through the skin on both sides of patient’s upper groin area. This access puncture allows a thin 1mm cannula that contains the laser fiber to be inserted into the treatment area. The laser then melts the fat before it is vacuumed out.
For comparison, a traditional liposuction procedure of the inner thighs requires a larger incision that allows a 3mm to 5mm tube to be inserted to suction out the fat. This process causes the patient to have greater levels of tissue trauma and pain.
Local Anesthesia Reduces Risks
One of the largest risk factors involved in liposuction procedures is the type of anesthesia that is used. With traditional liposuction, the patient is put to sleep for the duration of the procedure with General Anesthesia. This type of anesthesia carries a greater risk of complication.
With Smartlipo for inner thigh liposuction, the patient receives a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area and is awake and comfortable throughout the entire procedure. The use of local anesthesia greatly reduces the risks of the treatment.
Get a Faster Recovery
Because Smartlipo is minimally invasive, it requires significantly less down time than a traditional liposuction procedure. Patients will still experience swelling and tenderness in the inner thigh area, and a compression garment will need to be worn for 3 weeks post-procedure. Patients may also experience some mild bruising, but the swelling, soreness, and tenderness should resolve fully in about 1 month.
Patients will be able to resume normal activities within 1-2 days, and light exercise 3-5 days post-procedure.
Proven Results for Inner Thighs
Once the initial swelling and inflammation from the procedure begins to subside, patients typically begin to see a noticeable reduction in the size of the inner thigh area. While results vary from patient-to-patient, final results are expected 4 to 6 months following surgery.
Smartlipo is Affordable
The cost of the Smartlipo procedure for the inner thighs will vary based on where the patient undergoes the procedure. A typical price range for Smartlipo to the inner thighs is between $3,600 and $4,600. There are also financing options available to patients who qualify.
