Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have thighs with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. This may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness.

Thigh liposculpture permanently removes inner and outer thigh fat and helps stimulate skin tightening, giving the appearance of younger and tighter legs. Liposculpture of the inner thighs results in reduced rubbing and chafing and a visible gap between the thighs. After the procedure, the thighs are smaller, clothing fits better, and the thighs are in proportion to the overall body contour.


The procedure on the target treatment areas can be performed either under local anaesthetic, or with epidural anaesthesia (from the waist down).

There are three common variations to the procedure:

  • Traditional liposuction is surgical suctioning of excess fat deposits
  • The tumescent or super-wet technique requires an infusion of saline solution with adrenaline and possibly anesthetic prior to removal of excess fat
  • Ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty uses ultrasonic energy to liquefy excess fat prior to surgical suctioning


Once your procedure is completed, a compression garment or elastic bandages may cover treatment areas. These help to control swelling and compress the skin to your new body contours.

Recovery is usually quick, with patients returning to light to moderate activities the same day.


As swelling subsides, your new contours and enhanced self-image should continue to develop. The fulfillment you feel from the initial results of liposuction should continue as long as you control your weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

A significant weight gain can reverse your results. Following liposculpture, your slimmer and better-proportioned body should more accurately reflect the healthy and active life you lead.
