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.
