Thigh liposuction Tunisia : what is thigh liposuction?

A thigh liposuction, also called liposuction, is used to remove excess fat from the thighs. It is a cosmetic surgery procedure that allows the thighs to be resculpted to give them a more feminine and attractive appearance, and a softer and smoother skin.

Thigh liposuction is a radical and long-lasting solution for people who wish to get rid of the fat cells accumulated on the thighs. It is the ideal treatment when sports and diets are not effective or sufficient.

Liposuction can affect different parts of the thighs: the saddlebags (outer side), the inner side, the back side or the front side.

It should be noted that thigh liposuction is intended to treat fat deposits and not muscle relaxation.

The first step is the pre-operative check-up. The surgeon asks you questions about your general state of health and carries out a morphological examination of your thighs in order to determine the areas concerned by the procedure. This examination also allows him to determine the appropriate technique to treat the problem. He will then discuss with you the risks, the recovery time and the cost of the procedure.

How much does a thigh liposuction cost in Tunisia?

As is the case with most cosmetic procedures, the price of thigh liposuction in Tunisia varies from patient to patient, as the cost of the procedure can be affected by the number of procedures to be performed in combination with thigh liposuction and the other areas of the body to be suctioned (belly liposuction), Liposuction of hips, back, love handles, buttocks, arms or chin liposuction…), the duration of the stay, and the choice of having an attendant or not.

How is thigh liposuction performed in Tunisia?

Liposuction of the thighs in Tunisia is a surgical procedure that is generally done under general anaesthesia, but it is sometimes done under local anaesthesia (if it is a small area to be treated). It lasts between 1 and 2 hours and requires an overnight stay in hospital.

Liposuction of the thighs in Tunisia is carried out using very fine cannulas (3 to 4 mm) with rounded tips. This guarantees a precise, controlled and deep aspiration.

It should be noted that due to their particularly fragile skin elasticity (the skin in these areas is less elastic and therefore more prone to skin slackening), the inner and posterior sides of the thighs must be treated with moderation. Indeed, a non-homogeneous or excessive suction can lead to a fairly visible slackening of the skin.

Liposuction of the thighs in Tunisia is often associated with liposuction of the knees. It can also be accompanied by a thigh lift, for a more harmonious and optimal result.

Liposuction operation follow-up of thigh liposuction in Tunisia

Following a thigh liposuction in Tunisia, there is usually the appearance of oedema (swelling) and bruises (bruises), which disappear after a few weeks. Depending on the amount of fat sucked out, the patient may feel tired during the first few days after the operation.

The pain is mild and bearable, and simple painkillers are sufficient to soothe it. Anticoagulants are often prescribed to avoid any risk of venous thrombosis (phlebitis).

Concerning post-operative care, the wearing of an adapted panty is very important for 3 weeks to a month day and night, in order to facilitate healing and optimise the final result. This panty should be worn day and night, except in the shower.

Baths should be avoided during the first weeks. However, showers are allowed from the day after the operation.

Possible complications

Anaesthesia: during the consultation, the anaesthetist will inform the patient himself of the anaesthetic risks. The fact of having recourse to a perfectly competent Anaesthetist, practising in a truly surgical context (recovery room, possibility of resuscitation) means that the risks incurred have become statistically very low.

Indeed, it is important to know that techniques, anaesthetic products and monitoring methods have made immense progress over the last thirty years, offering optimal safety, especially when the operation is carried out outside the emergency room and in a healthy person.

As far as the surgical procedure is concerned: by choosing a qualified and competent Plastic Surgeon, trained for this type of intervention, you limit these risks as much as possible, without however completely eliminating them.

The real complications are exceptional after a quality liposuction: a great rigour in the choice of the indication and the surgical procedure must ensure in practice an effective and real prevention.

To be complete, we must however mention, despite their usual rarity :

Thrombo-embolic accidents: wearing anti-thrombosis stockings, early lifting and a possible anti-coagulant treatment help to reduce this risk.
Bleeding is rarely serious, unless there is an associated coagulation disorder or bleeding-promoting drugs are taken.
Haematoma and lymphatic effusion occur exceptionally during properly performed liposuction.
Similarly, localized skin necrosis, which lengthens the healing time and can leave scars, should no longer be observed.
Infection, which is in fact extremely rare in this type of so-called “closed” surgery, can be prevented by prescribing prophylactic antibiotic treatment.
Alterations in sensitivity can sometimes persist in the treated areas, and usually return to normal within 3 to 12 months.
