The Thigh Liposuction Procedure

Once the surgeon has finalized the area from where fat is to be removed and the sight for the incisions, then anesthesia, local or general is provided. Incisions are made and cannulas inserted in the fat that lies between the skin and the muscle. The cannulas break through the fat and allow it to be vacuumed out. Thereafter the incisions may or may not be closed with sutures, depending on how big they are, as also the technique used in thigh liposuction. At the hands of a competent and experienced surgeon such as Dr. Michael Pasquale there is little risk associated with the thigh liposuction procedure.

The time for the thigh liposuction procedure would depend on the amount of fat removal, type of fat and the technique used. In men the procedure is slightly more complicated because the fat is more fibrous and thus takes longer to break and remove.

Recovery from Thigh Liposuction

Depending on whether you have had general or local anesthesia for the surgery you may require pain medication for the discomfort after thigh liposuction. In case of local anesthesia the effect remains for over 12 hours and thus medication may not be required. Most surgeons prefer open drainage these days as it reduces the tendency for swelling and pain. Also the use of micro-cannulas does away with the need for stitches at the incisions. The patient can start moving a few hours after the surgery but should take it easy for a few days; it is crucial to adhere to the surgeons postoperative care instructions.
