The female body is amazing and a wondrous work of nature, but there are some things which may frustrate a woman such as the accumulation of excess fatty tissue in specific areas like the thighs and hips. The fact that most of this fatty tissue is genetically predisposed does not make the situation any better. Some men also tend to struggle with stubborn fat deposits but it is worse for women because having saddlebags affects their appearance by making them look chubbier and shorter and makes it difficult to find the right clothes.
The appearance of excess fatty deposits on the hips and thighs are mostly caused by genetics and hormones as you grow older. This is because as the body ages, the metabolic processes slows down. Going to the gym and/or dieting does very little in eliminating this issue.
Liposuction is a great solution when it comes to eliminating the saddlebags by trimming the hips and contouring the thighs thereby leaving you feeling great and confident in your own body.
Liposuction is the sculpting and contouring of the tissue which enhances the body’s natural profile. Inner and outer thigh liposuction gets rid of the stubborn fatty deposits which are hard to get rid off with exercise and diet.
In fact, the majority of women who undergo liposuction for saddlebags also tend to have other areas of the body with excess fatty deposits treated too so as to create a more balanced look. It is also common for the lower leg which comprises of the calves and ankles or the flanks (love handles) to be treated together with the saddlebags. Although this is not essential and depends on the patient’s preference and shape. Having these other areas also treated with liposuction dramatically improves the whole body’s look.
There are different types of liposuction such as;
- Traditional Liposuction. Local, general or regional anesthesia is used in this type of liposuction depending on how large the area. A cannula is inserted in the treatment area after local anesthesia is infiltrated into it and the doctor uses it to break down the fatty tissue, then suction it out.
- Ultrasound Liposuction. This type of liposuction uses ultrasound waves to liquefy fatty tissue before it is liposuctioned. This apparently causes a smoother look and helps in skin tightening.
- Laser Liposuction. This type of liposuction uses low-energy waves which liquefy the targeted fatty tissue and like ultrasound assisted lipsuction helps to create a smoother look and tighten skin
Your Plastic Surgeon is one who will determine which type of liposuction procedure is best for you after evaluation.
It is important to take time off work in order to recover from the procedure. Most patients however resume their normal day to day activities within a couple of weeks after the treatment but you have to be cleared by your doctor.
