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: Santa Barbara Cosmetic Surgery Highlight

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.

Dr. Perkins has performing liposuction for over 30 years. View before-and-after thigh liposuction pictures of patients of Dr. Perkins on our cosmetic surgery picture gallery.

Thigh Liposuction in Santa Barbara at Cosmetic Surgery Center

November’s Cosmetic Surgery Center highlight focuses on inner and outer Thigh Liposuction. Fat accumulation in the inner and outer (saddlebag area) thighs can almost always be treated with liposuction. The incisions are hidden in the pubic hair and in the buttock creases so that they cannot be seen even when you are wearing a bathing suit. The goals are decreased bulk and a uniform thin fatty layer.

Patients who are good candidates for this procedure are typically extremely happy with their results. View before-and-after pictures of thigh liposuction performed by Dr. Perkins at Cosmetic Surgery Center.

Santa Barbara Cosmetic Surgery Highlight: Slimming Thighs with Liposuction and Plastic Surgery

For many people, thighs are their biggest “problem” area. Thighs are one of the most fat-concentrated areas of the body and even when people are within their goal weight, and physically fit, they may still have extra “baggage” on the inner thighs or outer thighs (“saddlebags”), or both, that they cannot shed. At Santa Barbara Cosmetic Surgery Center, we understand that it can be very frustrating.

If one of your goals is to decrease bulk in your thighs, it can be done safely by Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Perkins. Liposuction of the thigh area is common, with Dr. Perkins usually doing a crisscross pattern of fat removal that helps assure a smoother end result. If skin removal is necessary, the incision line is done between the groin and upper thigh so it is easily hidden with underwear or bathing suits.

Liposuction contouring of the knees, calves and ankles can also be performed but these are tricky areas as there is a fine line between maintaining natural contours of the body and removing enough fat. This specialty liposuction should not be done by a novice surgeon. Dr. Perkins has been performing liposuction body contouring for over 30 years and some of his thigh lipo before-and-after pictures can be viewed on the Cosmetic Surgery Center website.
