Leg Liposuction

The first thing that comes into mind when we think of liposuction is the abdomen. Not many people know that there are other areas where liposuction can be performed, including the legs.  A skilled cosmetic surgeon can use meticulous techniques to remove the excess fat in the inner and/or outer thigh, calf, and/or knee areas. It creates a more natural-looking smoother and feminine leg contour. 

Leg fat can be difficult to remove even with regular exercise and healthy diet because your body type and your genes determine the amount of localised fat in your legs. The legs also do not have deep compartments for fat storage, therefore, fat comes up to the surface. Leg liposuction provides a solution for those persistent, localised fatty areas.

While there are a number of different techniques involved for leg liposuction, the most commonly used is the Vaser 360 Leg Contouring. The legs can be very delicate so Vaser is more beneficial and less invasive than the traditional liposuction techniques. One of the advantages of the Vaser 360 Liposuction is its ability to target fat from the important tissues which makes it safer and there are less chances of trauma after the procedure. 

The Lower Leg Liposuction is a procedure where liposuction is performed below the knees on either one or both legs. It promotes gentle fat extraction from targeted areas to help you acheive your goals for your thighs. Once the unwanted fatty tissues are successfully removed, a patient can move forward with the recovery. 

The Candidate

Leg liposuction is suitable for individuals that store a large amount of fat in their thighs and who want to get their legs toned but have little to no success. Getting a lower leg liposuction can improve someones self esteem by regaining a youthful shape of their legs.

The Procedure 

Vaser 360 Leg Contouring can be performed on the inner, outer, front and back thighs. It uses a special ultrasound technology that is meant to break down the persistent fat cells in the skin. Once the fat has been broken down, the fat will be gently removed from the leg through a cannula inserted in the area containing the localised fat. Energy pulses are emitted to target the fat cells and effectively separate important tissues with gentle suction following right after.

    Frequently asked questions

    Can I get Leg Liposuction on the leg and ankles?

    Definitely! Leg liposuction can be used to treat calves and ankles, too. There is also a bulge of fat just below the knee and with the location of this fat, patients do have a hard time removing this fat through diet and exercise.

    Are the results permanent?

    Vaser liposuction is an effective techinque to treat various different parts of the body. The method of liposuction is less invasive than other forms of traditional liposuction. A cosmetic surgeon can easily address the body fat in small and hard to locate areas for a more precise treatment with better results.

    In addition to providing patients with great results, Vaser liposuction also reduces the downtime after the procedure. Vaser causes less bruising than traditional liposuction and patients will only experience some slight discomfort for a few days after the procedure has taken place.

    What should I expect before and after the procedure?

    During your consultation, it is important that you should describe your goals and expectations in detail with your cosmetic surgeon.  A physical exam will be conducted to determine your expectations & realistic outcome. You will be asked about your medical history and medications, previous surgeries, drug allergies, and tobacco/alcohol use. As a result it is vital that you reveal this information to ensure the safety of your surgery. Any smoking habits and blood-thinner agents will be asked to be discontinued a few weeks prior to the surgery for a safer and shorter recovery period. 

    After the procedure, most patients can leave the clinic immediately. You might experience a slight amount of discomfort and pain during the procedure. It will be well managed with aneasthesia. Just like any cosmetic procedures, the minor side effects subside a few weeks. An aftercare guide will be provided and the clinic is open for any urgent concerns.

    Does Leg Liposuction leave scars?

    Incisions are placed in strategic locations to keep scars to a minimum. Incisions are necessary to execute a leg liposuction. You can relay your concerns about scarring with your surgeon prior to the procedure.
