Thigh Tumescent Liposuction
Walk out with thinner thighs
With tumescent liposuction of the thighs, you can walk out of the Renew Liposculpting clinic with new, smaller thighs in just a couple of hours, with none of the hassle and work that comes with dieting and exercise.
Flabby thighs are a source of frustration for many men and women. Now, with tumescent liposuction, they can permanently remove the fat from the inner and outer thighs, and get the shapely, younger-looking legs they have always wanted. Having a tumescent liposuction surgeon reduce the thighs with liposculpture is much easier and safer than undergoing traditional liposuction. The process is simple:
- You are given a local anesthetic to numb the area.
- Your surgeon then places small incisions to begin the suctioning process with a cannula.
- Your tumescent liposuction surgeon uses slow, gentle movements to remove the fat, meaning limited pain, fewer bruises, and a rapid recovery for you. The entire tumescent liposculpture procedure usually lasts only an hour and acts to reduce fat permanently. Tumescent Liposuction patients need only local sedation, and most patients are back at work in one or two days.
- Tumescent Liposuction is permanent. Once fat cells are removed from the body, they do not grow back.
- Tumescent Liposuction produces noticeable results, leaving you with sculpted, slimmer legs.

Why choose thigh tumescent liposuction?
Tumescent Liposuction reduces the circumference of the thighs, smoothes out lumps, and restores natural body proportions. Patients will have better fitting clothes, improved confidence, tighter skin, and a more youthful appearance. With tumescent liposuction, recovery is quick and post-op bruising and pain is minimal. Results are permanent, so patients never have to worry about those flabby thighs again.
What is thigh tumescent liposuction like?
Liposculpting is performed in a relaxing and luxurious spa-type setting with all the safety, sterility and standards of an operating room, under local anesthesia. Patients remain awake and alert during the entire procedure. First, the surgeon numbs the skin and places small incisions in the area. Using gentle suction, excess fat is removed with a small cannula. The procedure lasts for about one hour, and patients walk out of the office with their new, sculpted bodies.
Am I a good candidate for thigh tumescent liposuction?
Tumescent Liposuction of the thighs is a safe procedure for most women who have a high accumulation of adipose tissue on the inner or outer thighs. If you can pinch more than a quarter inch of fat from your upper leg, thigh tumescent liposuction should improve your contours by eliminating that extra fat. Anyone who has had a gastric bypass, or has lost over 100 pounds might need to take extra precautions and might want to consider further skin-tightening procedures for loose skin. Men are rarely good candidates for this procedure since they don't normally accumulate fat around the thighs. A consultation with the tumescent liposuction doctor can help address these issues.
Are inner thigh and outer thigh tumescent liposuction always done together, or can I choose only one?
You can choose to have tumescent liposuction on either the inner or outer thighs, though most women choose to have both areas treated. Many women experience fat accumulation across the entire thigh.
Will a thigh reduction get rid of my cellulite?
It is possible. Cellulite deposits are determined by each person's individual genetics-even young, thin women can have cellulite. Although some patients report an improvement in cellulite deposits, liposculpture of the thigh will not always eliminate cellulite and should not be considered as a solution for cellulite.
Will I have any scars or sagging skin after thigh tumescent liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction of the thighs leaves only a couple of small incision sites, each only about 3mm wide or less. The incision sites are closed with a small suture and heal within a day or two, fading into the natural color of the surrounding skin. Scarring does not usually occur.
Anyone under the age of 60 with good skin tone will generally not have sagging skin and will instead see an improvement in skin tone and firmness. All Renew patients receive a complimentary SkinTyte skin tightening treatment after the fat is removed, and time has allowed for healing and any additional swelling to subside.
What are the post-op procedures for thigh tumescent liposuction?
Patients generally experience only mild discomfort after the procedure. You can walk immediately afterward, enjoy light to medium activities, and return to work in a day or two. Some, but not all, patients experience mild bruising. A compression garment similar to bike shorts is worn to promote healing, reduce swelling and provide the best overall results.
Some patients may experience swelling after the procedure. Good results are visible within three to four weeks; final results are seen within six months. While it does take a while for the swelling to subside, there is minimal to no pain involved. The most common discomfort patients experience is mild soreness, similar to the muscle ache that accompanies strenuous exercise.
