This patient shows very localized fat deposits on the outer thigh (saddlebag) area which distort her frame. This areas of fat are usually somewhat resistent, and even intense exercise and diet will not eliminate them. In a combined technique, the deep fat deposit was first removed using Body jet pulsed water jetstream liposuction. When reaching the more superficial fat layers, we switched to laser liposuction technique to prevent wavy and saggy skin. In these cases it is important to carefully assess the perfect amount of fat removal. Too much or too superficial fat removal may result in unevenness, since the skin has to retract somewhere. The goal is best possible improvement of shape and not simply removing as much fat as possible.
