Thigh liposuction will reduce stubborn fat deposits in the legs and help you obtain slender, sexy thighs!

Speak with Kansas City’s liposuction and body sculpting expert, Dr. John Michael Quinn to learn how liposuction of the thighs can give you the slender, sculpted thighs you’ve always wanted.

About Liposuction

Liposuction has evolved significantly since its introduction to cosmetic surgery in the 1970s. Liposuction procedures use a thin cannula to suction fat from an area with excess fat cells. This is a great option for people who have found exercise and diet insufficient for reducing stubborn fat pockets. Liposuction can be performed all over the body, such as along the abdomen, upper arms, chin, hips, chest, buttocks, and back. Liposuction is particularly effective at removing stubborn fat along the inner and outer thighs.

Liposuction targets subcutaneous fat, the fat just below the skin. The body stores this fat as last-resort energy, causing it to be very difficult to reduce. Liposuction will gently reduce fat stores and help contour the body and slim down specific areas like the legs.

Liposuction is a significant procedure because it gives you the results you want right away!

Types of Liposuction

At Quinn Plastic Surgery, we use the tried and tested forms of liposuction that have been around for decades. These techniques have been proven to show impressive results for the long-term and help our patients achieve slender thighs.


SAL, or Suction-Assisted Liposuction uses a cannula to remove fat cells from the thighs. Small incisions are made through which the tube is inserted, allowing Dr. Quinn to sculpt your legs for your best results.


This form of liposuction uses the basic fat removal technique but implements a vibrating device that makes fat removal easier. This procedure is performed similarly to SAL but allows Dr. Quinn to retain energy and use less wrist movement.

Dr. Quinn will determine which liposuction procedure will contour your legs and achieve your aesthetic goals.


The primary benefit of liposuction is that it will effectively and immediately remove that stubborn thigh fat that has been bothering you. Liposuction will impact the total number of fat cells in your body. By the time we reach adulthood, we have a set number of fat cells. These cells will not decrease in number. Exercise and diet will only reduce the cell’s size. With a lipo surgery, the fat deposits in your thighs will decrease.

Your results will be immediate and you will be able to show off our legs in no time!


Healthy men and women who are within their ideal weight are great candidates! Exercise and diet cannot always slim down the thighs in the way you want but liposuction can. Look through before and after photos of thigh liposuction to get a good idea of what this procedure can accomplish.

Small incision will be made along the thighs. Through these incisions, a cannula will be inserted. The specific lipo technique will be implemented to remove stubborn thigh fat. Dr. Quinn will artfully contour your legs and help them appear in better proportion with your whole body. Once the desired goal has been achieved, the incisions will be closed and bandaged.


Following surgery, your legs will be sensitive and swollen. Pain medication can be used to control any discomfort. Elevate your legs to keep swelling down and take brief walks to improve circulation.

A compression garment will need to be worn on the thighs for a few weeks to control swelling and help the legs adjust to their new, slim shape.

A follow-up appointment with Dr. Quinn will allow him to monitor your recovery and keep you informed on what to expect for the rest of your healing process. Everyone has a unique recovery. It’s important for you to take your healing process one day at a time.


You will immediately notice slimmer, toned thighs. As swelling decreases and your legs adjust to their new shape, you will notice your final results. It will take about a week for you to return to work and your final outcome will set in after three to four weeks.

Your results are long-lasting. Maintaining a healthy life and weight will allow your legs to look slender for years to come.

Should I get liposuction on my thighs?

You should get liposuction on your thighs if you are a healthy individual who is not seeing improvement from exercise and diet. If you are frustrated by being unable to improve your thighs, it is time to look into cosmetic surgery. Thigh liposuction is a great solution for men and women with thick thighs or thighs that jiggle. Liposuction will get rid of stubborn fat that seems resistant to healthy activities.

To truly know if thigh liposuction is for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Quinn. He will help you determine your best solution for thinner thighs.

How long is recovery for thigh liposuction?

The recovery length of your surgery will relate to how much work is performed and your health. Most patients are able to return to a sedentary job within a week. Dr. Quinn will help you figure out how much time you will need to take from work and the average of your recovery. Most patients notice a difference in the appearance of their legs after surgery. Final results often set in after about a month.

Does thigh liposuction get rid of cellulite?

No. Thigh liposuction will reduce unwanted fat and may even help you achieve an inner thigh gap. Cellulite will need to be treated with a different procedure, like ThermiSmooth. ThermiSmooth is a non-invasive treatment used to reduce many skin conditions including cellulite. Radiofrequency is used to reshape the underlying layer of the skin and tighten the surface. The handheld device is created in different sizes so large or small areas can be treated. ThermiSmooth is a great way to enhance your thigh liposuction treatment!

How much weight can you lose with liposuction?

You can lose around five pounds with liposuction, but it is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss solution. Liposuction is meant to reshape the body and get rid of localized pockets of fat. If you are looking to lose excess fat, liposuction is your solution. If you are unsure if you need liposuction or a weight loss program, schedule a consultation with Dr. Quinn so he can set you down the right path.

How dangerous is liposuction?

Liposuction is an FDA-approved treatment for removing difficult fat just below the skin. When performed by a skilled surgeon like Dr. Quinn, you know you are in good hands. A consultation will be held before your surgery to ensure you are healthy and a good candidate. If Dr. Quinn does not think this is a safe treatment for you, lipo surgery will not be pursued. He will help determine an alternate treatment plan to sculpt your thighs and achieve your ideal body goal!
