Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided
information as well.. This is the surgical
procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most
performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order
to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It
can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin,
abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small
incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied,
it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After
liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months
after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment
for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at
least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many
time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain.
Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an
accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also
really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery,
that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your
body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use
compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure
and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing
it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on
your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult
with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than
fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed
performing a thigh lift…
Thank you for asking about your liposuction.
- Your English is excellent - and my Danish is non-existent so thank you for your excellent English.
- You can have knee liposuction -
- It will reduce the size of your legs - it will not tighten the skin.
- So it is important that it focus on the shape that will look best, and not maximum fat removal.
- Always see a Board
Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Liposuction of the legs and knees can be done. You would have to be seen in person to determine what is best for you.
I liposuction during liposuction of other areas of the legs. you can have your knees liposuctioned. The inner knee is one of the more common areas that I liposuction when liposuctioning other areas of the legs.
Above the knees may be a different story, however. If your skin is of good quality, this area does well with liposuction also, however. If the skin quality is poor with lots of sun damage, it may be necessary to add a ThermiTight to the liposuction to tighten the skin.
Visit a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery for an evaluation. Good luck.
