Liposuction of hips and thighs
- Liposuction will change your proportions,
- A very little will make a big difference because you are small and trim,
- You need a consultation face-to-face with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to identify each area that bothers you
- The machines used, I believe, are less important than a careful liposuction with small cannulas with attention to detail.
- Cellulite can increase after liposuction but it is very uncommon when small amounts are removed.
Based on the pictures, I do believe that you would make a good candidate for liposuction in the abdomen, waist, lower back, inner and outer thighs with fat grafting in to buttocks. The estimate can be between 4800- 5800.

Select a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of liposuction procedures each year, has great reviews, and has great before and after pictures.

Candidate for Lipo?
You look great! Your efforts at a healthy lifestyle are paying off, even though you are frustrated.
I think you would be an excellent candidate for lipo or Lipotherme (laser lipo). Although I find that Lipotherme does tend to improve cellulite in some cases, it must be stressed that lipo is NOT a treatment for cellulite.
You are in such good shape that your lipo must be done with a light touch, so be sure to go with a very experienced board certified plastic surgeon. An experienced surgeon will be able to avoid the butt thigh problem that you mentioned.
Liposuction Candidate? Yes!
Good luck. #Dr. Gervais
Good liposuction candidate.
Candidate for lipo
You appear to be a great candidate for a liposuction procedure. You are correct, if done improperly or in the wrong area, it is possible to lose the definition between your buttock and thigh. So you must go to a plastic surgeon skilled in liposuction. As for cost, there's really no way to answer that as it completely depends on geographic location and surgeon experience. I recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers to your questions which can best be addressed after a thorough history and examination is performed.
Best of luck to you!
Hips and thighs do great with tumescent liposuction under local.
