Liposuction is one of the most popular and widely accepted cosmetic surgery these days. This procedure eliminates fat cells from a person’s body by the use of a suction equipment called cannula. There are different types of liposuction that specialize in some areas of the body. For people who have big thighs, getting rid of this is way too hard or even impossible by just merely dieting and exercise. This is the reason why they resort to outer thigh liposuction.
This type of liposuction is performed on a patient’s outer thighs and makes multiple but small incisions on the specific areas that need to be treated. The cannula will then be inserted in the incisions and sucks out the excess, unwanted fat by the use of a small motorized aspirator. The outer thigh liposuction surgery takes about 1 to 2 hours or 5 hours at the most.
This procedure, like any other surgery may pose some risks but are not likely to happen if it is done properly. This technique should be highly customized to the medical condition and need of each patient. Make sure that your surgeon is highly qualified and licensed to this procedure with you. Your surgeon will then be able to give you a more accurate and customized procedure since he knows what he is doing.
There are many possible things that could affect the length of the outer thigh liposuction procedure. Plastic surgeons need to estimate the amount of excess fat they need to get rid of on the surgery. Because of this reason, there is no really estimated standard length of time on how long the surgery will last; the greater the amount of fat to be removed, the longer the hours it on the procedure.
There are several types of liposuction that needs additional equipments to assist on the suction devices. These equipments can aid in making the procedure easier and faster. The auxiliary equipments can include small nozzles for the injecting of fluid into the incisions, lasers for helping in breaking down the walls of fat cells and ultrasound equipments to help in liquefying the unwanted fat cells. These additional equipments automatically give the liposuction procedures more steps hence, making the surgery longer but safer and more effective.

Remember that before considering this operation, you need to know all the there is about the procedure including the benefits, risks, price and a lot more.
