I am considering a liposuction on my inner/outer thighs but I have spider veins. Is it dangerous?
Liposuction Safe for Thighs with Spider Veins?

Liposuction of the thighs is totally safe even if you have spider veins
Spider veins are so common that almost everyone who gets liposuction of the thighs have them. They may worsen some after the liposuction but sclerotherapy gets rid of them and they don't present any safety issue for getting lipo done. Thigh liposuction costs about $4000-4500.

You should not have any problem with this surgery.
In more than 30 years of doing liposuction I have never had an increase of spider veins or had a patient complain that this happened. You should do well.
