Liposuction Before & Afters Case #4868
This 29-year-old woman had a slim frame, but was bothered by the look of her thighs. Because they carried a little extra fat, she found it difficult to fit into some jeans and felt that the bulges gave her legs a less attractive contour. Wanting to meet with a Los Angeles plastic surgeon who had a great deal of experience performing liposuction, she decided to contact Marina Plastic Surgery Associates for a consultation.
She explained her concerns to her surgeon as he listened carefully during her consultation. She expressed a desire for slimmer and more evenly contoured thighs and asked him what treatment options she had. The most effective way to remove the excess fat on her thighs was to use power-assisted liposuction (PAL), a method that more efficiently dislodges fat than traditional liposuction. By using PAL, her surgeon would quickly and carefully reshape her thighs for a more desirable look.
Once her liposuction in Los Angeles was completed, she was given time to recover before coming back for another appointment. Just 18 days after surgery, these postoperative photos were taken, showing smoother and slimmer thighs. She was very pleased with the results.
