Thigh Liposuction: Procedure, Benefits, Cost, and Side Effects

For many, achieving a sculpted and toned physique remains a relentless pursuit. Despite a commitment to diet and exercise, stubborn pockets of fat, particularly in areas like the thighs do not seem to go away with traditional methods.

This is where leading plastic procedures like thigh liposuction come into the picture for many. The procedure offers a direct and more effective solution for stubborn fat deposits by targeting these unwanted bulges and sculpting the thighs for a smoother, more defined look.

At Handa Aesthetics, we offer comprehensive solutions concerning thigh liposuction tailored to your specific aesthetic goals. We will discuss the procedure’s benefits, cost considerations, and side effects.

What is Thigh Liposuction?

As the name suggests, thigh liposuction is a comprehensive cosmetic surgical procedure that removes excess fat deposits from the thighs. It also helps reshape and contour the appearance of the thighs by eliminating excess fat deposits.

If you want to achieve a more proportionate appearance of your thighs in comparison to the rest of your body, liposuction is one of the best cosmetic procedures to consider. Contrary to popular belief, thigh liposuction can be performed on both the inner and outer thighs.

From eliminating saddlebags to creating a thigh gap, our cosmetic surgeons at Handa Aesthetics target procedure results in a way that aligns with the overall shape and appearance of the body. However, don’t mistake it for a weight loss solution because it isn’t one.

What are the Types of Thigh Liposuction?

Before we delve into the question of whether or not you should get thigh liposuction, awareness of the types is quintessential. A few of the most important ones include:

Tumescent Liposuction

This is the most common type of thigh liposuction, which involves injecting a saline solution with lidocaine (anesthetic) and epinephrine (a medication that constricts blood vessels) into the targeted area. The main objective is to augment the fat removal process and minimize the blood flow during the procedure as well.

Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL)

UAL is a more advanced form of thigh liposuction that makes use of ultrasound waves to liquefy the fat cells before suctioning them out of the targeted sites. If you have fibrous or dense fat deposits around the thigh, UAL is one of the most effective options.

Who Are Ideal Candidates For Thigh Liposuction?

Thigh liposuction, albeit being safe, isn’t a one-size-fits-all procedure. What might work for one might not work for the other. This is one of the main reasons why determining whether or not you are an ideal candidate for the surgery is quintessential.

At Handa Aesthetics, we prioritize this during our initial consultation with our patient. You are an ideal candidate for thigh liposuction if:

  • You have a stable weight with good overall health
  • You have stubborn fat pockets around the inner or outer thigh that’s hard to shed
  • You have good skin elasticity, as optimal results require the skin to contract

We will assess every minute aspect to determine whether or not the procedure would be an ideal one for you to undergo.

What Is The Procedure Of Thigh Liposuction?

Next comes the most crucial aspect of thigh liposuction, the procedure itself. It is a multi-step procedure that starts with consultation and planning and ends with post-operative care. To ensure that the patient is making an informed decision, our surgeons at Handa Aesthetics prioritize a thorough discussion about the procedure with our patients and their families.

Following are the steps you need to know:

Initial Consultation And Planning

This involves discussing your expectations and goals for the surgery. We also assess your medical history and overall health to estimate whether you are a good candidate for the surgery. A physical examination of the thighs is also done to determine the most suitable liposuction technique for you.


Next is determining the route of anesthesia for the thigh fat removal surgery. Depending on the procedure’s severity, you can opt for general or local anesthesia. Local anesthesia is often sufficient for smaller, localized areas, while general anesthesia might be recommended for more extensive fat removal.

Marking The Target Area

Right before the surgery, the surgeon must mark out the specific sites on the thighs where the liposuction will be done. Thus, markings are made, and these are used as guides during the surgery.

Making The Incision

The liposuction starts with making the incision, which measures about 2-5 millimeters in length around the thigh area. This is where the cannula is inserted.

Liposuction Process

After making the incisions, a tumescent solution is injected into the targeted areas in the thigh where the fat would be removed. A cannula is then inserted through the incisions to loosen the fat deposits, which are then suctioned out of the body using a vacuum-like device. The surgeon will also sculpt the thigh for a more refined appearance.

Closure Of The Incisions

Once the desired amount of fat is successfully removed, the incisions are closed, and the patient is transferred to a recovery room until the anesthesia wears off. Following that, the patient and their family are given a rundown of the post-operative care instructions by our surgeons at Handa Aesthetics.

  • Enhanced body contour, especially around the thighs
  • Targeted fat reduction
  • Minimal scarring
  • Improved clothing fit
  • Quicker recovery time

Discussing the benefits of thigh liposuction is essential to determining whether you’d want to proceed with the procedure.

What Is The Thigh Liposuction Cost in India?

The average thigh liposuction cost in India starts from INR 50,000, and the usual maximum cost is around INR 1,00,000. However, the exact figures are subjective to the patient and where you are getting the procedure done.

Usually, the extent of the procedure and the surgeon’s and clinic’s fees add up to the cost of the procedure in most cases. At Handa Aesthetics, we provide a breakdown of the costs to our patients to maintain optimal transparency through and through.
