Circumferential Liposuction of Thighs: Yay or Nay?
liposuction

I am pear shaped. I'd like to shrink my thighs. Despite losing a great deal of weight, they are still heavy.

What advice would you give someone who is looking for circumferential liposuction (anterior, posterior, interior and exterior)? It seems to be uncommon. My anterior/front thigh troubles me the most while the exterior is mostly fine, though I'd like the higher/hip portion to be smoother.

I'm looking to have surgery either in SE Asia or S America. I live in E Asia, but the surgeons here aren't especially great with body procedures.

The answer to your question was provided many years ago by the masters of liposuction Fournier, Illouz, and Gasparotti. The thigh is a difficult area to work if you do not understand that (more)

Dear Dr. Johnson,

Thank you for your insight. Do you have any recommendations, especially abroad? I now live in East Asia, though it is possible for me to travel elsewhere when I finish my current contract.

Thank you!
