We are lucky to have the sun shining and warm temperatures for much of the year in a beach town such as our beautiful Santa Barbara. Given this climate, many of us find ourselves wearing shorts, skirts, or bathing suits for a good portion of the year that ultimately shows off our legs. While some people have fantastic legs – whether it is genetic or hard-earned – many others struggle with the thigh area. In fact, Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins sees many patients who consistently exercise, are within their goal weight, and, yet, cannot shed the extra baggage on their inner or outer thighs (or both). This can be very frustrating!
Fortunately, there is a safe and effective solution to reduce the thigh area and it can be done at Cosmetic Surgery Center in Santa Barbara by Dr. Perkins. The overall goal for thigh liposuction is to decrease the bulkiness of the thighs along with creating a uniform thin fatty layer so your new svelte legs will not have lumps and bumps. Dr. Perkins creates smoothness by doing a crisscross pattern of fat removal during the liposuction procedure. If excess skin removal is necessary, the incision line is done between the upper thigh and groin area where it can easily be hidden by underwear or bathing suits.
Dr. Perkins can also contour the knees, calves, and ankles. This specialty liposuction should not be done by an inexperienced surgeon because these areas are tricky and there is a fine line between maintaining natural contours of the body and removing enough fat.
