What Patients Need to Know About Outer Thigh Lipo

Many people choose to have outer thigh liposuction because they struggle with extra fat that accumulates there. This extra fat is often simply caused by a person’s genetics, which means even though you might diet and exercise, the outer thigh fat just will not go away.

Also known as “saddlebags,” WIFH is able to treat this area of the body, reducing the excess fat deposits with the minimally invasive Smartlipo laser liposuction procedure.

Read on to learn more about why the Smartlipo Triplex device offers the ideal treatment for outer thigh liposuction in Atlanta!

Why Smartlipo is the Top Choice for Outer Thigh Liposuction in Atlanta

When researching options for outer thigh liposuction, there isn’t a shortage of methods that can be used to remove the unwanted fat. Those options include traditional liposuction and laser-assisted lipo treatments like Smartlipo. But why is Smartlipo superior to the other outer thigh liposuction options? Here’s why:

Smartlipo is Less Invasive

Smartlipo is a minimally-invasive, highly effective laser liposuction procedure to reduce saddlebags. Smartlipo works by gently melting fat tissue (adipose) before it is suctioned out from the body. The use of tiny instruments prevents excessive tissue trauma, and the heating and melting of fat prior to removal helps tighten the skin[51], unlike other liposuction techniques.

Smartlipo is done under local anesthesia and is also highly effective for other areas of the body, such as the inner thighs, chin, love handles and the abdominal area.

Smartlipo Offers a Faster Recovery

Smartlipo has very minimal downtime and minimal discomfort post-outer-thigh-liposuction procedure. In fact, 94% of WIFH patients don’t choose to take an oral sedative, allowing them to drive themselves home after their procedure. Most patients are able to return to work in 1-2 days, and are able to go back to light exercise within 3-5 days.

Patients should expect some tenderness and swelling that will dissipate over 2-3 weeks. Patients will need to wear a compression garment for about 3-4 weeks post-procedure. Most patients do not bruise as a result of Smartlipo, but it is a possibility. If bruising does occur, it will resolve quickly.

Smartlipo Delivers Results

After the post-operative swelling has diminished, outer thigh lipo patients will begin to see a noticeable difference in the size and shape of the treated area. Over time, patients will continue to see a continued contouring of the outer thigh, with final results expected about 4-6 months after the outer thigh liposuction procedure.
