Permanent Fat Removal from Abdominal and Thigh Area?
- Asked by aliss in new york

I had the traditional Liposuction when I was 32 years of age. On my upper thighs only. I was not satisfied with the results. It was very uneven and fat loss concentrated in certain areas only.
Now 47, I would like to remove abdominal and thigh fat with a better procedure. No Smart Lipo. I seem to find you very knowledgeable. Any ideas would be great.
You need a full consultation to really answer your question.
I am sorry to hear that you original liposuction results were unsatisfactory. The thighs can be a tricky place, and I agree with Dr. Esmailian, that the results of liposuction are very operator dependant. So many physicians perform liposuction, but a plastic surgeon has done extensive training in all cosmetic surgery which includes liposuction. That is 6-10 years of training as opposed to a few day courses or even year training.
That being said, you would need a formal consultation to see how you can be helped. You may be a candidate for an abdominoplasty, or you may need more well done liposuction and/or fat injection to give a smoother appearance. I also agree that for most areas, Smart Lipo is no better than traditional liposuction.
Liposuction and technique
Having said that, I feel that smart lipo is advantages in the submental (neck) liposuctioning.
