Anterior Thigh Lipoplasty Liposuction on Front Thighs
As in the case of the abdomen, liposculpture of the thigh may be conducted separately or as part of a major body lift operation. In any event, the goal of liposuction on the anterior thigh area should be optimal not maximal fat reduction. Smooth results are more important for patient satisfaction than maximum removal of adipose tissue.
Risks of Circumferential Thigh Lipoplasty
Liposculpture of the entire thigh in one operation is not advised. Circumferential liposuction may result in prolonged swelling of the legs, with increased discomfort plus delayed return to normal activities. Additional health risks include leg-vein thrombosis and blood clots. If a significant amount of thigh-fat requires suctioning, it is best to plan a series of liposuctions, with the sessions spaced at 4-8 week intervals. This reduces complications and facilitates a swifter return to work and exercise activities.
Serial Lipoplasty Better for Lymphatic System
The main cause of leg-swelling after circumferential liposuction is injury to the lymphatic vessels found in fatty tissue. These lymph channels drain excess fluid from injured tissue. When circumferential liposuction is performed, there are no spare lymph vessels to speed up drainage from the suctioned area. However, by subdividing liposuction of the thigh into several separate procedures, the untreated part of the thigh may provide lymph drainage for the liposuctioned area.
