Abstract

The thighs are an important area of esthetic concern for women. Liposuction of the thighs is indicated for the deformities mentioned above which have overdeveloped thighs and thighs that are overdeveloped in a limited area such as the anterior portion, lateral portion or the medial portion. Liposuction of the thighs is contraindicated in older females presented with redundant, irregular, cascading skin. The results for these cases would be far from acceptable, although with superficial liposuction a moderate improvement can be obtained. The indications, technique and possible complications are discussed.
