Thigh Liposuction in Santa Barbara at Cosmetic Surgery Center

As a cosmetic surgeon in Santa Barbara, I see many patients who dislike the appearance of their thighs. It is especially frustrating for those who are in good shape and lead healthy lifestyles, yet the fat on the thighs does not budge.

The proportion of fat in the inner and outer thigh area is known to be stubborn and, sometimes, resistant to any type of diet and exercising. For some women, this is a genetic predisposition while for others it may be linked to hormonal changes (such as menopause). Whatever the case, Thigh Liposuction is really a great option for exercise-resistant thighs.

At Cosmetic Surgery Center in Santa Barbara we treat fat accumulation on the outer and inner thighs with liposuction and skin removal (if necessary). Our goal is to decrease bulk and create a thin, fatty layer that is similar to other body regions. We do a crisscross pattern of fat removal to assure a smoother end result.  Incisions are hidden in the pubic hair and the buttock creases. If skin is removed, it is done in the inner thigh area where the incision line will lie in the groin and upper thigh area which can easily be hidden by underwear or a bathing suit.

In our experience, most thighs respond well to liposuction. Our patients are pleased with their thighs that are now more in proportion to the rest of their body.

Leg and Thigh Liposuction in Santa Barbara at Cosmetic Surgery Center

Most people have a love-hate relationship with their own thighs – they either love them or hate them. Some people are genetically “blessed” with slender and/or athletic thighs, others have to work very hard to maintain a svelte thigh while the rest of the population is left with thighs that they’d rather hide than reveal. Many women find that when they gain weight it goes straight to the thighs. It’s often the first place weight gain is seen and, unfortunately, the last place where the weight comes off, if it comes off at all.

Thigh fat is commonly referred to as “saddlebags” and the reason why fat deposits there is due to a combination of genetics, gender and age. As we age, fewer calories are burned and the fat that settles on the thighs is usually thicker in nature, making it all the more difficult to work off. Thigh Liposuction is a good choice for those who are in good shape but are not seeing any improvement in their thigh area despite a healthy diet and consistent exercise.

Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins can treat fat accumulation in the inner and outer thigh area through liposuction. The overall goal is to decrease bulk and create a thin fatty layer that is similar to other body regions. Dr. Perkins usually does a crisscross pattern of removal to help assure a smoother end result. Incisions are hidden in the pubic hair and the buttock creases. In some cases, skin removal is needed for the inner thigh. When this is done, the incision line should lie in the groin and upper thigh area so it is hidden by panties or a bathing suit.

Leg and Thigh Liposuction is often the best solution for eliminating stubborn thigh fat. When this is done successfully, it can make the buttocks look better because it creates a more proportionate look.
