Before & Afters Thigh Liposuction

As with any surgery, scarring is to be expected. However, the scars from Vaser liposuction are usually small and can fade over time. As everyone is different, how noticeable the scars appear once healed will always vary.

Thigh Liposuction At A Glance

Vaser liposuction is a cosmetic procedure aimed at reducing excess fat from the thighs. Using ultrasound technology, this technique effectively breaks down fat cells, facilitating fat removal. It's an ideal option for suitable candidates who find it challenging to lose stubborn thigh fat through traditional methods like diet and exercise.
Average Procedure Time 1-3 hours
Anaesthetic Type Local with sedation
Hospital Stay Day
TIME OFF WORK 1 week on average depending on multiple factors
Average RECOVERY 6 weeks

Benefits

  • Focused Fat Removal: The procedure aims to specifically target and reduce stubborn fat in the inner and outer thigh areas.
  • Thigh Reshape: Vaser liposuction can assist in reshaping the thighs by removing excess fat, potentially enhancing their natural contours and appearance.
  • Recovery Period: Often less invasive than traditional liposuction, this technique may lead to a quicker recovery period and potentially less post-procedure discomfort for the inner and outer thighs.

Potential Candidates

Are you considering thigh liposuction and wondering if it’s the right fit for you? If you identify with the following, you may be a candidate for Vaser lipo.

  • You’re looking to target specific areas of stubborn fat on your thighs rather than overall weight loss.
  • You’re in good overall health.
  • You are at a stable weight and are committed to a healthy lifestyle to maintain results.
  • You have good skin elasticity, which helps it conform to the new contours after fat removal.
  • You don’t smoke – candidates must quit or refrain from smoking before and after the procedure.
  • You’re not pregnant or nursing.
  • You understand that Vaser lipo is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise and should have realistic goals for the procedure.

What to Expect From Thigh Vaser Liposuction

Consultation

When considering Vaser liposuction for your thighs, the journey starts with a thorough consultation with a medical expert. During this meeting, your medical history will be reviewed, and we’ll talk about your goals for your thighs. It’s your chance to get a clear understanding of the procedure and discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

Pre-Op

Before the actual surgery, you’ll go through important medical checks to ensure you’re in good health for the operation. You’ll receive detailed instructions on pre-operative care, including guidelines for fasting and managing medications. Following these instructions is crucial for your safety and the overall success of the procedure.

The Procedure

For your thigh liposuction, you will receive anaesthetic sedation for your treatment comfort.

After numbing the area, your Levant Cosmetic Surgery doctor will make a small incision, typically in the groin crease, bikini line, or buttock crease, to insert the Vaser probe.

The probe is gently moved back and forth to heat and liquefy the unwanted fat cells. As the fat tissue is broken down, a cannula will be used to suction the fat out of your body.

Aftercare & Recovery

Getting Home

You will be required to be collected by a responsible adult to stay with you for the remainder of the day and overnight. Even if you feel normal, your reaction time will be slower after receiving sedation medication.

Aftercare

  • After your procedure, you’ll receive comprehensive post-operative instructions for a smooth transition home.
  • We provide a 24/7 contact number for any post-surgery questions, ensuring you can always reach us.
  • Your post-surgery care will be overseen by your doctor, supported by our dedicated care team.

Recovery Timeline

Immediate Post Procedure

You’ll be released into the care of a responsible adult family member or friend.

An overnight hospital stay is not required.

Once home, you must rest and take it easy.

First Two Weeks

Expect to experience soreness and tenderness, but we’ll provide pain relief to minimise discomfort.

Compression garments are always worn post-procedure. You will be instructed on how long you will be required to wear these garments.

You should be able to start driving again after a few days.

During this time follow-up appointments will commence as organised by your care team.

Depending on individual factors, you may be able to return to work around the 1 week mark, but this will vary from patient to patient. Exercise can begin again after approximately 6 weeks post-procedure.

Two Weeks & Beyond

Follow-up appointments will continue as necessary and are scheduled by your care team.

You must continue to wear your compression garments as directed.

A surgical review with your doctor takes place approximately 6-8 weeks post-procedure.

Full recovery occurs around the 6 week mark, with full results evident in 6-12 months.

How Much Does Thigh Liposuction Cost?

Cost is an important factor in deciding on Vaser liposuction. The overall cost varies, and is influenced by several aspects:

  • The range of treatment, including the number of areas to be addressed.
  • The amount of fat to be removed.
  • The choice of sedation for the procedure.
  • The duration of the surgery.
At Levant Cosmetic Surgery, prices for Vaser liposuction begin at $5,500 for the initial area.
Additional areas are charged at a smaller rate starting from around $2,000.
An "area" can refer to the lower abdomen, upper abdomen, both hips, or both upper inner thighs, for example.
Prices are a guide only and will vary from patient to patient. Book in for a consult for a personalised quote.
The Importance of Choosing a Qualified Doctor

Picking the cheapest option for cosmetic procedures isn’t a wise decision. It can mean lower quality, safety risks, and the need for more treatments, costing you more.

Selecting a skilled doctor ensures better care, safety, and more satisfying results. Prioritising quality and expertise is crucial for getting the best outcomes and ensuring you’re happy with the results.

Treatment Areas

Thigh fat can collect in various places on your thighs, and this differs from person to person. We can break it down into four areas:

  • Inner Thighs: Inside your thighs, just below the groin, down to the knee.
  • Outer Thighs: On the sides of your thighs, from the hips to the knee.
  • Front of Thighs: The front part of your thighs, from the groin to the knee.
  • Backs of Thighs: The part you sit on, from the buttocks to the knee.

Other Areas Vaser Liposuction Targets

Vaser liposuction can be considered for various body areas, depending on individual suitability and skin condition. Some commonly treated areas can include:

  • Tummy/Abdomen: Often chosen for removing stubborn abdominal fat.
  • Back: Targets excess fat deposits in the lower and upper back.
  • Arms: Reduces excess fat from the underside of the upper arms also known as the triceps area.
  • Flanks: Reduce excess fat in the flanks – the hip and waist area.
  • Buttocks: Used to reshape and reduce excess fat or to increase the size of the buttocks using fat transfer.
  • Chin/Neck: An option to remove the small pockets of fat located in the chin/neck area.

Doctor approved areas of the body can be effectively targeted with Vaser liposuction, offering noticeable changes in body contour and shape for suitable candidates.

FAQs

What are the risks of thigh Vaser liposuction?

In Australia, you can safely take out up to five litres of fat in a single liposuction session. If you need more than that, you might need a few extra appointments.
Will my skin become loose after the procedure?
The outcome varies depending on your skin's elasticity before surgery; some experience good tightening, while others may have minor looseness. Your doctor can provide expectations based on your skin condition.
Will there be scarring?
As with any surgery, scarring occurs. However, the scars from Vaser liposuction are usually small and can fade over time. As everyone is different, how noticeable the scars appear once healed will always vary.
Is this procedure suitable for obesity?
Vaser liposuction is not a weight-loss surgery, but if you're looking to remove a significant amount of fat, you can discuss Mega Liposuction options with your doctor during your consultation.
Are there non-surgical alternatives?
