Does Liposuction on the Thighs Give an Appearance of Skinner Legs? (photo)

Hello, First off I know liposuction is not a form of weight loss, I am not interested in that, however Im 5'8 and weigh 128lbs , I think I'm pretty skinny for my height but my thighs are just to big for my body as I am a size 6/8 in jeans and that drives me crazy . I know that this type of liposuction is somewhat of a body conturing , does that mean that it gives the appearance of skinner legs as well as being able to fit into smaller size jeans, I want to do both inner&outer liposuction.
Thighs should appear thinner after liposuction
Properly performed liposuction of the thighs will definitely result in a thinner appearance. The most common areas of the thighs that are treated are the upper inner and upper outer thighs. Please see the photos of patients who have undergone liposuction of these areas (cases #2413 and #2446 via the link below).
Liposucton of the thighs
Liposuction of the thighs may be ideal for you to thin your thighs a bit. Of course, an in office exam would help determine if you are a good candidate or not.
You look like an ideal candidate for liposuction of the legs.
1) As you know, liposuction is not about weight loss. It is about permanent contour improvement. Many women feel like the bottom of their body does not belong with the top (pear shaped).
2) It looks like tumescent liposuction of your inner and outer thighs, and perhaps, a little in the inside of your knees, would indeed give you "skinnier legs".

Hw does liposuction change your legs
Liposuction works best for people that are height and weight proportional as you are. If you look at well done examples of liposuction, the people look like themselves with a smaller profile of their former shape. You appear to be a good candicdate for liposuction by your photographs. Make sure you see a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and someone that is very experienced.

Liposuction of the thighs
You are just about the perfect candidate for hi definition laser liposculpture of your medial (inner) and lateral (outer) thighs. Like you mentioned, you are not overweight but have areas that need to be sculpted. Its not just about removing the fat but to sculpt the area well and using laser (SmartLipo) to tighten the skin. This is especially important in the inner thigh region. Best of luck.

Thighs do great with liposuction!
From your photo, you look like lipo of the thighs would make a noticeable improvement and can be done under local anesthesia and back to work in only 2 days for roughly $5,000 on special. Sincerely,

Visual changes in leg size with liposuction
Liposuction will decrease the amount of fat and thereby improve the fitting of pants and will make the legs look thinner. The one major caveat is what happens to the overlying skin. It could shrink down nicely or could get loose and have increased cellulite.
Does Liposuction on the Thighs Give an Appearance of Skinner Legs?
The one posted photo is barely adequate to diagnose if any type of liposuction will give you "skinner legs" so you could fit into skinner jeans. But if we assume you are a candidate than yes liposuction can slim your thighs. I prefer Smart Lipo TRIPLEX + lipo to accomplish this. Best of luck
Candidate for liposuction
Of course, an in person exam is necessary but from your photo you look like a good liposuction candidate. Focus on the lateral thighs more as the skin there shrinks better than in the inner thighs when the skin is thinner and less elastic. Also, go for conservative liposuction not aggressive lipo as getting too vigorous increases the risks of permanent dents and grooves.
