The thighs – especially the outer thighs – are prone to accumulating fat and this makes the body look out of proportion. Outer thigh fat, also known as saddlebags – typically caused by factors such as genetics, hormones, and a dormant lifestyle – is resistant to even strenuous diets and exercise. Traditional liposuction can slim and contour the thighs but it involves invasive surgery and large incisions; moreover, the procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Many women don’t wish to undergo such invasive procedures. For such women, fortunately, reliable plastic surgery practices provide BodyTite outer thigh liposuction in New York City, a minimally-invasive liposuction procedure that eliminates excess thigh fat without surgery. The procedure can improve the shape and proportions of the lower body effectively, and provide a well-shaped, proportionate figure.
BodyTite is an FDA-approved modality, that utilizes patented RFAL™ (radiofrequency assisted liposuction) technology to remove excess fat, while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. This procedure addresses two common cosmetic concerns in one innovative procedure:
- Unwanted fat pockets
- Loose skin
The radiofrequency (RF) energy that is delivered to target the treatment site, liquefies and removes the stubborn fat cells in the outer thighs. The device targets the initial skin layer as well as your body’s underlying tissues to achieve significant skin contraction. It also stimulates the production of collagen, and strengthens the skin structure providing long-lasting results. Most importantly, the body contouring and skin tightening abilities of BodyTite in NYC provides a toned, attractive appearance. Some other benefits of outer thigh liposuction include:
- Effective contouring of the outer thighs by eliminating unwanted bumps and jiggles
- Smoother skin and a more refined tone to the outer thigh
- Removes excess fat pockets safely and efficiently
- Visible skin tightening through renewed collagen production
- Controlled heat generation
- Requires only local anesthesia or light sedation
- Procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis
- Short downtime and does not require overnight stay
- Quick healing
- Less to no visible scarring
- No lumpy irregularities
- Minimal surgical trauma
However, only ideal candidates for this procedure can reap these benefits. Generally, an ideal candidate for BodyTite on the outer thighs is a healthy person with troublesome areas of excess fat and skin that they would like to get corrected. The best candidates have moderate skin laxity and are within 30% of their ideal weight.
Compared to traditional liposuction for thigh contouring, BodyTite outer thigh liposuction in New York City involves only a short recovery period. Most patients return to work within a week. However, to speed up recovery after the procedure, patients are usually advised to follow certain post-op tips such as wearing a compression garment for a few weeks, limiting physical activities and so on.
