So many people understandably hate their inner thighs and wish they were smaller. Aside from just not liking the way their inner thighs look, for some, the constant friction from their thighs rubbing together can be very uncomfortable.
When your thighs constantly eat your shorts while running or even just walking, nonstop tugging and chafing can be both annoying and irritating. Not to mention the wear and tear on your favorite jeans from your inner thighs rubbing together so much, it really does thin the fabric. For these reasons, Smartlipo to the inner thigh area is hugely popular as an effective and minimally invasive way to reduce the size of the inner thighs.
What is Smartlipo?
Smartlipo is a great option for getting rid of those pesky inner thighs, which are often hard to reduce with diet and exercise alone. Unlike traditional liposuction of the inner thighs, which leaves lots of bruising and weeks of downtime, Smartlipo is laser-assisted liposuction and is minimally invasive. This means Smartlipo offers great reduction like traditional liposuction with virtually no downtime.
During the procedure, one tiny puncture is placed in the skin in the upper groin area on both thighs, this is typically the only entry point needed to treat the area. The entire procedure is done under local anesthesia (a lidocaine fluid infused under the skin is used to numb the area).
Through the tiny opening, a thin laser cannula is inserted, and the laser melts and liquifies the fat. At the same time, the skin tissue absorbs the heat from the laser, causing the skin to tighten. Once the fat in the inner thighs is melted, aspiration or suction is applied, and the fat is removed.
Inner Thigh Smartlipo Recovery
Though Smartlipo is minimally invasive and will not require the kind of downtime you would expect with traditional liposuction, you will have swelling and tenderness in the inner thigh area, and we do ask that you wear a compression garment for 3 weeks following your Smartlipo procedure. Bruising should be minimal, and many patients don’t experience any at all. You can expect to be up and moving the same day as your Smartlipo procedure. You will be numb for several hours afterward. Once that numbing fluid wears off you should anticipate feeling very sore—like you did one heck of a workout. The best part is, though, you will not be stuck in bed following this procedure, it is really quite easy.
Most patients want to know about inner thigh Smartlipo recovery time and when they will see full results. The time it takes to fully heal can vary from person to person. Typically, most of the swelling is gone at about the one-month mark, and you will notice your inner thighs shrinking.
After your Smartlipo procedure, you should expect to see full results and shapelier inner thighs after 3 to 6 months. You will happily notice a significant reduction in the circumference of your thighs after laser liposuction treatment. Imagine wearing shorts and not having to worry about them riding up in the middle or your inner thighs chafing after a long day! Imagine your jeans fitting looser and more comfortably around the thighs! You will be so happy with your results.
