Many women, no matter how much they exercise, retain fat in their lower body, such as their legs and thighs. A genetic predisposition to heavy thighs or lower legs can be a source of embarrassment or discomfort, and may discourage women from dressing in clothes they would like to wear. Liposuction is an effective solution to this problem.
Liposuction is procedure used to sculpt and remodel a patient’s body by getting rid of unwanted fat in specific areas. Liposuction on the legs and thighs is normally used to remove fat from the upper part of the legs in order to create a more slender, firm, and natural-looking result.
Depending on the amount of fat to be removed and the natural elasticity of the skin, a thigh lift to remove excess skin may be recommended as well.
Liposuction in additional areas, such as the hips, buttocks, lower back, abdomen, or lower legs (knees, calves, and ankles), is often combined with leg and thigh liposuction for an overall sculpted look.
Liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise, or a cure for cellulite. Liposuction, properly used, is a means of removing stubborn fat deposits from specific areas of the body, thus improving the contours of that particular body part.
At The Plastic Surgery Clinic we perform approximately 175 liposuction procedures each year. Dr. Lista, Dr. Ahmad and Dr. Austin make sure that they stay informed about the latest innovations in liposuction techniques so as to provide the safest and most pain-free procedures possible with minimal scarring and the best, most natural-looking results.
The surgeons at The Plastic Surgery Clinic are proud to have helped hundreds of patients in Toronto realize their ideal body image through the targeted removal of fat using liposuction. Recognizing that many individuals feel apprehensive about undergoing liposuction, these surgeons conduct personal consultations, during which time they explain to you exactly how your liposuction is performed and what results it helps achieve. The personalized approach relieves anxiety and helps the surgeons deliver highly satisfying results for all of their cosmetic surgery patients.
At The Plastic Surgery Clinic we do not practice one-size-fits-all surgery, which is why we don’t publish a one-price-fits-all cost. Many things can affect the price of a thigh liposuction, and your plastic surgeon will outline the details of the procedure, as well as the cost, during your free consultation. It is important to note that most provincial health plans, OHIP, and company benefits do not cover voluntary plastic surgery procedures, but there are different financing options available so that you can achieve your goals now.
