Reduce thigh fat
- You have a lovely figure - it is hard to see how much fat is in your thighs from a profile view.
- You have some skin dimpling and irregularity - liposuction can make this worse.
- This area is a difficult one - if there is excess fat, a small cannula liposuction may help a little.
- Or the areas of dimply can be released - a machine called Celfina is supposed to do this well.
Liposuction those thighs !
Liposuction of the thighs and buttocks is easy to undergo and makes a very nice improvement with little down time and quick recovery.
Find the right surgeon
Far more important than deciding if liposuction or a BBL is for you is the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Choose your surgeon rather than the technique and let him explain why one technique may be better than another and if you need a tummy tuck. Many board certified plastic surgeons provide a free first time consult and you should take advantage of that! See the below link on some suggestions on finding the most qualified Plastic Surgeon for you!

Reduction of thigh fat options
Thank you for your question. From the picture it is difficult to tell what options are best for you. Liposuction can work well, but it can also make your legs look worse if you have poor skin or cellulite. Sometimes CoolSculpting or Vanquish which are non-invasive treatments can work very well. I would suggest a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who can review all your options once you have been examined. Good luck.

Stubborn Thigh Fat
Hi and thank you for your question. This is a very common location to have persistent, stubborn, subcutaneous fat. Although a physical examination with a board-certified plastic surgeon is always needed, I would first start with a non-invasive fat removal technology, such as UltraShape or Sculpsure. They are designed to remove small amounts of subcutaneous fat in difficult areas, which would be perfect for you. These procedures do not involve surgery, and they are performed in an office setting with zero pain and no downtime. 2-3 treatments are usually needed to see the results that you want. If that doesn't get you to where you want to be, I would next recommend ultrasound or laser-assisted liposuction. This is a little more invasive and will require an operation with anesthesia. But, it will definitely remove any unwanted fat and offer skin tightening over those areas as well. Good luck!
