check the img below .....and suggest me weather liposuction will help me or not....by removing extra fat around my hips(inner and outer thighs) can make them look better ??
This should not be construed as medical advice. I am a retired Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
This is a question that comes up over and over again. Weight Loss Forum - Plastic Surgery Not Alternative to Losing Weight
. On that link you can find many other similar discussions that do not need to get re posted here. If you really want to learn why, check them out to understand the limitations of using surgery for something it does not do as well for shaping. That is why as a surgical sculptor I preferred to use a coarse tool to sculpt (the weight loss) and then my surgery for refinement.
Plastic Surgery is better After Weight Loss
, not as an alternative. You asked about bone reduction which to use, orthopedic surgeon vs Plastic surgeon and are now asking about liposuction. It sounds like there is something you do not like about your body.
check the img below .....and suggest me weather liposuction will help me or not....by removing extra fat around my hips(inner and outer thighs) can make them look better ??Standard Pictures for Liposuction
keying on one body part are not enough to point out global body issues. That is why something full bodied like Standard Pictures for Lower Body Lift
show more what is happening around the entire body.
A single picture alone just was not enough for my opinion when I was in practice. Not offering one now, as I am retired. Male Body Fat Pattern
problems come in all different degrees. When patient came to me with such issues, I tried to explain the limitations of what surgery had to offer. If evaluating a surgeon's claims that they do have options and methods that work, trusting that to a single image or limited images, can be risky. I saw so many asking for help after being unhappy with surgery done elsewhere.
So what is it that bothers anyone about their contour? You ask about bone changes, and now ask about liposuction for thighs. One method is to take an entire set of images and compare them to Abdomen and Thigh Liposuction Before After Pictures
or other surgeons' analysis of their methods of problem solving.
But again, the single picture is not enough for a proper discussion. Too much missing information. I also asked about their Body Fat. Check out our Body Fat Calculator
. Global Body Fat becomes part of the equation of any true sculptor. I preferred to identify the basic contour problems before considering surgery as a potentially disastrous quick fix.
Hope this helps,
