Ideal candidates for leg liposuction are those who have been successfully dieting and exercising but still have stubborn fat pockets. This surgical technique sucks out or dissolves fat from areas such as the abdomen, neck, arms, and buttocks. Another area that can be reshaped entirely with liposuction is the legs.

This post will detail how to get slimmer legs and a tighter figure with liposuction.

Details About Liposuction

Liposuction is now generally performed with small incisions made in not-so-noticeable areas of the body. Surgeons insert a thin hollow tube called a cannula into these incisions and use a vacuum device to suck out unwanted fat.

During your consultation before the procedure, your surgeon will determine precisely where the problem areas on your legs are and which surgical line will give you the shape you want. Using computer images, he will help you visualize your new leg shape. Liposuction can effectively treat fat on the thighs, buttocks, calves, and knees. Even the ankles can be slimmed down.

Remember that liposuction is not a comprehensive treatment for weight loss. The procedure best suits patients within 15 to 20 percent of their average body weight. You are a good candidate if you generally have a healthy lifestyle, i.e., eat healthily and are physically active. Smoking habits must be abated, as smoking interferes with recovery and your results.

Slimmer Legs With Liposuction

The thighs are often treated with liposuction, as sliming excess fat on the inside and outside makes you feel more confident in short, tight pants or skirts. If you have a lot of excess skin on your thighs, usually due to heavy weight loss, a thigh lift can also help restore tightness to the area.

Liposuction can also slim down a small roll that forms just below the buttocks - the banana roll.

Liposuction is effective in getting rid of excess fat above the knees and in the lower legs. Instead of looking like a tree trunk, you gain a desirable taper that falls to your ankles. Of course, if your calves look chubby because you have a genetically large gastrocnemius muscle, liposuction won't help. Liposuction is only for fat, not muscle.

Restoring Your Leg Contours

In most cases, liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis. This means you can go home the same day and recover in familiar surroundings. You will be administered a compression garment to wear around the treated areas for up to three weeks.

If you have multiple areas of your legs treated, your recovery will take longer. However, scar tissue formation is minimal and only occurs in small incision areas.

You will see slimmer legs almost immediately, even when wearing compression garments. After a few weeks, the swelling will subside, and you can resume your normal activities.
