Candidates for Outer Thigh Liposuction

There are several reasons you may be a candidate for outer thigh liposuction. Many women, regardless of age, accumulate fat deposits on their outer thighs. The amount of thigh fat is determined primarily by genetics and can occur even in thin women. This can be a great source of frustration because regardless of how much a woman exercises and adheres to good eating habits, these genetically predisposed saddlebags can stubbornly persist.

If you find your clothing doesn’t fit well, outer thigh liposuction can help. Pants no longer have an embarrassing bulge, and wearing a bathing suit may be more appealing after reshaping. After all, many women have a hard time finding two-piece suits that fit due to the mismatch in their size between their “top” and “bottom.”

This mismatch between the upper body and lower body is so common that it is sometimes referred to as a “two-body” syndrome. Women who are unfortunate to be two different sizes may look like they are one size while they are sitting at a desk, but appear to be a completely different size when they stand and reveal their lower bodies.

An area that is closely associated with the outer thighs is the prominent bulge located below the buttock crease and adjacent to the outer thighs as if the outer thigh bulge is continuing below the buttock crease. This area of fat is also genetically determined. Some women have it, and others don’t. Even thin women have this bulge. Because of its shape, it is often called a “banana roll.” When present, it is usually an undesirable feature.

How Does it Work?

SlimLipo™ laser combined with outer thigh liposuction can give the best smoothing and tightening possible. Even though cellulite isn’t cured by using SlimLipo™, the smoothest and most uniform reduction of fat is achieved using the combination of small cannulas with tumescent technique liposuction and the SlimLipo™ laser. Smoother skin tone on the thighs is the result.* The amount of improvement varies from patient to patient and will be discussed in detail during an outer thigh liposuction consultation with Dr. Finder in San Antonio.


Outer thigh liposuction can be an amazing surgical procedure to remove unwanted saddlebags and better proportion a woman’s body. Often, women who initially experienced “two-body” syndrome are relieved that they now have a more proportioned, hourglass shape after their procedure.


This procedure is an outpatient surgery, meaning you can go home the same day. You may experience some discomfort for the first 72 hours, and taking pain medication prescribed by Dr. Finder can help. Most patients with desk jobs can return to work within three days. You will experience swelling for two to three weeks, and be advised to wear a compression garment for four to six weeks, depending on how quickly your body heals. Strenuous activities like exercise should be avoided for three to four weeks.
