Liposuction is a fantastic tool, designed to remove stubborn fat and tighten and enhance contours. The procedure consists of insertion of a thin hollow metal tube (generally smaller than 3 – 4 millimetre) underneath the skin, the fat is then vacuumed out into a jar. This clearly is an oversimplification of the process and our doctors at Reforme Medical, UK will make sure you understand the whole process down to the tiniest detail, before you make your decision about using this tool, to sculpt your body.
There are many variants of liposuction were different types of energy devices are used to help with the breakdown and suctioning of the fat and tightening of the overlying skin. VASER uses Ultrasound Energy to breakdown the fat cells and makes it easier to suck the fat. Our, SmartLipo uses a laser to melt the fat and tighten the skin. BodyTite uses Radiofrequency energy in a similar way to SmartLipo or Laser Liposuction WaterJet uses the force of a very high speed spray of water to breakdown the fat.
Power Assisted Liposuction, Tickle Liposuction, MicroAire, are all devices that make the vacuuming of the fat out of the body more effective and less time consuming. They can be used with any of the above energy assisted devices.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I slim my whole thigh down?
Can I ever slim down and get rid of my saddlebag thighs?
Do the non-surgical alternatives to Thigh, Saddlebags liposuction work?
Cryolipolysis or CoolSculpting uses specially designed applicator pads that cool the skin and the underlying fat, the principle of this concept is that fat cells freeze at 4 degrees Celsius while skin tissue and blood vessels don’t. The fat freezing destroys the fat cells.
SculpSure achieves the destruction of the fat cells using Laser Energy, Vanquish uses Radiofrequency energy.
All the non-surgical devices work to some extent in a carefully selected patient with minimal fat deposits, none of the devices can achieve the immediate results possible with the surgical liposuction technique.
Can I have inner thigh liposuction to get a Thigh Gap?
The desire to have a Thigh Gap therefore is unrealistic for a woman who does not have the right anatomy; it also does not make any difference to the persons beauty.
Inner thigh liposuction can however be used to reduce the mechanical rubbing of the inner thighs, but has to be done with great care, as it can sometimes unmask laxity of the inner thigh skin, giving rise to irregularities after treatment.
We advise all our patients that inner thigh liposuction will always be done conservatively to avoid contour irregularity. Often we advise the patients have Laser Assisted Liposuction or SmartLipo in the Inner Thigh area as it promotes greater skin tightening following the liposuction.
