Thighs

  • Excess fat on the thighs can occur due to multiple factors including diet, lack of activity, age, and genetics.
  • If you’ve tried changing your diet and increasing exercise but still can’t reduce the amount of fat on your thighs, surgery with Vaser liposuction may be an option.
  • Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound technology to remove unwanted fat, creating a slimmer leg appearance for suitable candidates.

What is Thigh Fat?

Excess fat in the legs can be located on the front thighs (anterior), back thighs (posterior), inner thighs, or outer thighs. Fat in these areas can be superficial (just below the skin) or deeper, surrounding the thigh muscles. Excess fat deposits in the legs may cause cosmetic concerns, but can also affect physical comfort and movement.

What Causes Excess Fat on the Thighs? 

The build up of fat in the thighs can result from several factors. Your genetic makeup plays a significant role in where your body stores excess fat. Dietary habits, especially a diet rich in high-calorie and low-nutrient foods, combined with a sedentary lifestyle (not enough walking, or movement in your day) can also contribute to a build up of unwanted fat on the thighs.

How to Reduce Thigh Fat

To reduce excess thigh fat, a mix of exercises that focus on your legs and a healthy diet can help. Remember, keeping stress in check and getting good sleep matter too.  If you’ve tried to reduce the amount of fat located in thighs and are not achieving any changes, Vaser liposuction may be a treatment option that suitable candidates can consider. 

About Thigh Liposuction

Thigh liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to target and remove stubborn fat located in the thigh area – most commonly from the upper inner and upper outer thighs using Vaser liposuction. This technique utilises ultrasound technology to liquefy excess fat in the target thigh areas before the treated fat cells are removed using suction with a cannula.

Thigh Liposuction FAQs

Does walking burn fat on the thighs?
While walking doesn’t directly burn thigh fat, it can help burn excess energy and put you into a calorie deficit, which in turn helps you lose weight across your entire body. Combining exercise like walking with a healthy diet is crucial for best results. If diet and exercise don't work, thigh liposuction might be a suitable option for you.
Is thigh liposuction safe?
All surgical procedures, including Vaser liposuction, come with certain risks. It's essential to have a consultation with a doctor to help you understand these risks and complications. The doctor can also determine if this type of liposuction is a good fit for your health and body type.
Am I a suitable candidate for thigh liposuction?
Whether thigh liposuction is right for you depends on a personal factors including your overall health, the type of body you have, and your medical history. It's best to talk to a doctor who specialises in this area for advice that's tailored to you before making a decision to have surgery.
How much fat can liposuction remove?
In Australia, the rule is that no more than five litres of fat can be removed in one liposuction session. If you have a larger quantity of fat, you will need to plan for several sessions. Your doctor can give you more details about this during your consultation.
Is liposuction suitable for obese individuals?
Vaser liposuction isn't a treatment for obesity and it's not considered a weight loss surgery. For overweight patients thinking about having a procedure to remove a large amount of fat, Mega Liposuction may be an option if suitability for surgery is determined by the doctor.
Are there non-surgical alternatives to reduce excess thigh fat?
If surgery isn't what you're looking for, Levant offers non-surgical methods with CoolSculpting. This treatment is designed to target specific areas of your body and is a non-invasive alternative to surgery.
