Liposuction of the thigh in Sydney

By September 24, 2015blog_post

The thigh region is one of the parts of the body where unwanted fat deposits are removed. Thighs tend to accumulate high reserves of fat deposits which tend may alter the shape of the lower body. The fat may be deposited in the inner thigh or the outer one.

How the operation is carried out

This is one of the easiest operations involving a suction pump and an instrument known as a cannula. The surgeon will make a small incision on the thighs before the cannula is inserted to suck out the fat deposits. During the process of removing the fat deposits, small tunnel-like structures are created before collapsing to help in better contouring of the thighs.

Side effects

Thigh liposuction comes with a number of side effects and risks. These are as discussed below:

Blood and fat clots

The surgeon should inform you of the possible risk of forming clots. These clots could pose a risk if the clot travels in the blood. Fat clots are also likely to form.

Sensitivity to skin

The skin becomes increasingly sensitive due to the surgery. There may also be a possibility of loss of sensitivity on the operated area.


You run the risk of bleeding excessively especially if the procedure is not carried out by a professional or a skilled surgeon.

Body contours that are not even

Although the aim of the procedure is to smooth out the contours, there may turn out uneven contours on the skin.


Swelling is common among patients for thigh liposuction.

Skin discolouration

The skin may change colour due to the procedure.

Damage to the nerves

The nerves may be damaged by the cannula. The skin too may also be damaged.


As this is an invasive procedure, the cannula could cause formation of scars.

Anaesthesia risks

There are some people who are allergic to anaesthesia hence cannot be operated on by being administered one.


The making of incisions on the skin leads to pain and discomfort.

Sagging skin

One may suffer from sagging skin on the thighs.  Get the best liposuction results when you visit our medical practice in Sydney, navigate the contact us page to get started for a free consultation with one of the cosmetic surgery expert in Australia.
