Info Liposuction thigh
Liposuction can be used to “sculpt” the area around the thigh. This area is often difficult to improve through normal weight loss.
A positive factor is that the fat removed can not return, because fat cells will not be renewed, but only grows and shrinks, making liposuction an excellent method to use locally.
A younger person often ha a more elastic skin, which gives the best results. How much the skin can tighten itself after liposuction is crucial for the end result.
The fat cells in the area are destroyed and sucked out by a vacuum. Small incision, approximately 5 mm long, is made where the “straw” is inserted.
These incisions leave very small, almost invisible scars.
At Victoriakliniken the surgery is always performed under general anesthesia, but you can normally go home the same day. Usually you will feel fine after just a few days following a liposuction of chin, neck, and can return to work.
After doing a liposuction of the thigh, support stockings should be used for a number of weeks.
At Victoriakliniken, we are very gentle when doing all our liposuctions, causing minimal bruising and swelling, which in turn speeds up healing. The bruises you do get disappear in a few weeks. Massage of the skin, good diet, fluid intake and avoidance of nicotine products also accelerates the healing process, and ensures the best possible end result.
The result will normally keep for a long time after the procedure.
Not a weight-loss method!
We would like to emphasize that liposuction is not an alternative to loose weight in other ways!
Liposuction works great for sculpting the body in areas that are perceived as asymmetrical or unbalanced. A person with a normal weight, good diet and regular exercise, may still have fat deposits around the hips that are not influenced by a healthy lifestyle. While the rest of the body is shaped by exercise and diet, these areas can instead become increasingly visible in contrast to the rest of the body.
That’s when liposuction can be an alternative, to reduce these deposits to create a more symmetrical whole.
Here you can watch 3D-animations describing in detail how liposuctions are performed, and what happens before, during and after the procedure.
Please observe that the animations describe liposuction in general, and not specifically for the thigh.

Dokuments about liposuction
Here you can read and download more detailed information about liposuction, in pdf-format (in Swedish).
We recommend our patients to do endermology before an abdominoplasty or liposuction, to enhance blood circulation in the fatty areas, and to speed-up recovery. After surgery this treatment can help drain fluid, and lessen swelling and pain.
Price liposuction thigh
Some patients wonder why we don't have a fixed price list. We have chosen not to have one as each patient is unique with unique conditions for an operation. Since conditions vary from patient to patient, no surgery is exactly the same, although there are more standardized procedures such as breast augmentation.
The price-range for some surgeries is so great that we feel that we need to meet our patients in order to provide a fair and accurate price. In addition, it is often only at the time of consultation that we together with you will find out which procedure or procedures are suitable for achieving a beautiful, final result. For example, it may be advisable to combine a tummy tuck with liposuction of the abdomen or waist. Our goal is perfection and that you should be completely satisfied with the result after surgery. If several procedures are performed at the same time, the pricing will be different than if the procedures are performed each in itself.
It's important to remember that in addition to the actual cost of surgery, the proce also includes anaesthetic, all medication, all revisits (often three) and often at least one overnight stay including meals, after surgery. Here you can read more about what is included when booking an operation at the Victoriakliniken.
You are welcome to contact us to ask about approximate prices. Your questions will of course be answered as best as possible. We hope you are lenient about us not following a fixed price list as each patient is unique with unique conditions, which is why individual pricing is the most accurate.
Virtually all prices are shown including VAT, as all procedures and treatments except those made for medical reasons have VAT added in Sweden since the turn of 2014/2015. Whether your procedure is medically motivated or not, is also something that needs to be concluded at a personal meeting. In cases where the price is quoted excluding VAT, this is because these procedures are always performed on a medical basis.
