Inner Thigh Lipo Gone Wrong: What to Do After a Botched Treatment

grabbing thigh fat

Thousands of plastic surgery procedures are performed throughout this country, especially liposuction.

Liposuction is the surgical removal of unwanted fat from the body. When done correctly, it can help contour the body to look slimmer and healthier.

Fat removal procedures are the most sought-after treatments by individuals, and while most areas of the body can be addressed, the inner and outer thighs are of much concern.

Liposuction For The Thighs

Liposuction on any area of the body should be done by a board-certified plastic surgeon. The procedure consists of first strategically placing incisions around the area with stubborn pockets of fat and then inserting a cannula to extract the fat.

Areas generally treated via liposuction are the back, arms, chin, buttocks, abdominals, hips, and thighs.

Several patients opt for thigh liposuction because they want to prevent their inner thighs from rubbing together. Others instead treat the outer thighs to remove 'saddlebags' to obtain a smoother contour.

Addressing A Thigh Liposuction Gone Wrong

Not all cases of thigh liposuction are glamorous. Sometimes patients are put under the responsibility of an inexperienced surgeon, unfortunately providing them with disfigured and uneven results.

Nonetheless, that does not mean that it can't be resolved. Botched liposuction procedures can be corrected with revision surgery to give you the results that you've always wanted in the first place.

How Does A Botched Procedure Happen?

Botched liposuction occurs when the following happens:

  1. The surgeon has removed too little or too much fat, creating asymmetry within the lower body.
  2. The surgeon has not precisely contoured the thigh, creating hills and valleys of unsmooth texture on your upper leg.
  3. Too much fat was removed, causing the skin to sag.
  4. Due to improper technique, surrounding tissues were harmed by the liposuction process.
