Can you combine liposuction with a thigh lift? Or is it best to do them at separate times? In that case, which would be first?
Yes. In fact many plastic surgeons prefer to do liposuction and thigh lift at the same time. In fact, all my thigh lift procedures include liposuction before nad after the procedure. This will optimize the procedure by preserving the vessles that are needed for lymphatic drainage. Thus you will get less swelling.
It usually is.
Liposuction is usually part of a thigh lift. There are variations of this that you should discuss with your surgeon.

Liposuction and a thigh lift
Liposuction is usually performed with a thigh lift at the beginning of the operation. However, if a larger amount of liposuction is required, it may be better to do this around 6 weeks before the thigh lift. Thank you for your question.
