Is SmartLipo and/or Vaser for Inner Thighs the Way to Shaplier Legs?

Posted by Shannon Morgan on Oct 18, 2012 12:54:00 PM

If you are like me, it seems like no matter how hard I try and no matter what exercises I do, my inner thighs just don’t change. Inner thighs are the hardest to slim down through diet and exercise alone. There are over 900,000 Internet hits for thigh exercises for women, proving that I am not alone in my goal for sexy legs. If like me, you have tried everything….let me introduce you to your new best friend – body sculpting with a combination of Smartlipo & Vaser.

Fat that accumulates on the thighs and hip area are some of the hardest to target. Genetics and gender are strong components in thigh fat, particularly the inner thighs. As we age, we burn fewer calories and the fat settling in our thighs is thicker, which can lead to a less-defined figure. Body Sculpting with Smartlipo and Vaser technologies can make thighs look leaner, and it may even make your butt look better too, due to a more proportionate result. Inner thigh body sculpting can significantly improve the silhouette of the thigh and reduce the rubbing together of the inner thighs.

No matter what our body type is, all of us have difficulties trying to slim and lose weight in our thighs. Hourglass, apple, pear/spoon/bell, rectangle or straight, we could all use a little help trimming our thighs.

The way that Body Sculpting liposuction works on our thighs is the same as anywhere on our bodies. Smartlipo or laser lipo consists of a paperclip thin laser fiber which is inserted into a very tiny incision. The fat is melted by the laser and then is sucked out. Vaser uses vibration to separate the fat cells.  Dr. Kerr uses this technology when fat transfer is needed for  breast  or butt since the fat cells are left. The incision is made in the groin or hip area and tightens the skin. Dr. Kerr is known for his amazing body sculpting techniques, as demonstrated in the picture above.

Smartlipo/Vaser is a gentle procedure that can be done in just a few hours depending on the number of areas to be treated. There is minimal pain, a quick recovery time and visible results almost immediately. Smartlipo has proven to be one of the safest cosmetic procedures.

 Benefits of Smartlipo/ Vaser body sculpting vs. traditional liposuction:

  • Promotes tissue tightening through tissue coagulation

  • Performed under local anesthesia

  • Less bleeding and trauma

  • Quicker recovery

  • Dramatic results

Another benefit of Smartlipo/Vaser is that in most cases, more than one area can be treated at a tine. The picture shown above show’s results from Dr. Brian Kerr of Silk Touch Med Spa Laser & Lipo of Boise using a combination of Smartlipo and/or Vaser liposuction on the thighs, abdomen and love handles, leaving the areas a lot more proportionate to one antoher.

Here is a recent commentary on Saddle bags in NewBeauty:

Say Sayonara to Saddlebags---Posted Thursday, July 21, 2011 by NewBeauty Staff

It’s no secret that fat is hard to banish—and one of the most obstinate offenders is the area between the hips and thighs. Commonly referred to as saddlebags, these pockets of fat create hard-to-budge bulges that can generate an unsightly silhouette. “In both men and women, excess fat can end up just about anywhere; however, women tend to store it in the abdominal area, the hips or thighs,” says Concord CA, plastic surgeon Eric Mariotti, MD.

When diet and exercise seem like a long shot for getting rid of unwanted weight in the thighs and hips, liposuction may be the next best solution. During the procedure, your surgeon will make a small incision before inserting a surgical tool known as a cannula to vacuum out fat beneath the skin. “The best liposuction candidates are those at, or near, their goal weight yet still have problem areas they wish to address, says Richmond, VA, plastic surgeon Ruth L. Hillelson, MD. Dr. Mariotti adds that, while liposuction remains the best surgical solution, variations of the standard procedure, such as ultrasonic-assisted liposuction (VASER), may in some instances, be more suitable for patients with fatty areas or “pockets” that are in need of contouring.
