How does the leg and thigh liposuction work in Sydney?

Every prospective patient at ICCM is required to have a personal consultation with the chief surgeon. This is a very beneficial step in the process as it offers the chance to determine which procedure is best suited to your needs while giving you the opportunity to ask all of the questions you may have about the process.


At your consultation, we’ll assess your physical and emotional health while discussing any current or past medical conditions. We’ll advise you on any medications or supplements that may interfere with the process and talk through any other cosmetic surgery procedures you’ve had if any.

The thigh liposuction can sculpt your legs to the shape you’ve always desired.

A thigh liposuction procedure can boost your confidence and give you the shape you’ve always wanted.


During VASER leg liposuction, subcutaneous fat is removed from areas of the legs (inner and outer thighs and calves if desired). The treated area is filled with a medicated solution and the fat cells are then targeted with state-of-the-art ultrasound energy before being removed from the body through a gentle suction process.

Thin cannulas are then inserted below the skin through tiny incisions and used to break apart and vacuum out unwanted fat. The incisions are made in the body’s natural folds (when possible), in order to minimise the appearance of any resulting scarring.


After the procedure, you can expect to experience some swelling and bruising but these side effects are completely normal and should disappear after approximately 2 weeks. We recommend that you take at least a few days off work to give your body a chance to heal. You must avoid strenuous exercise for 3 weeks but light walking is recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any more questions about thigh and calf liposuction. IN the meantime check out our FAQs for any more information you may need:

Yes, you can get liposuction for your inner thighs, outer thighs, ankles and calves if you so desire.

Leg liposuction can remove excess fat from your thighs which can slim them down but unless you have the correct bone structure a thigh gap may be impossible.

Thigh and leg liposuction won’t cause any extra cellulite, in fact, it may be subtly improved. However, some patients with poor skin elasticity may appear to have more cellulite after thigh and leg liposuction.

As the incisions are so small, any scarring will be minimally visible, if at all.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks but as leg lipo is a minimally invasive procedure, it’s considered quite safe. The most significant risk is having too much fat taken from the treatment area but this is highly unlikely when carried out by an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Due to the fact that our team will only use a small cannula during your surgical procedure, we can be very specific about removing excess, unwanted fat. This specific sculpting means achieving any realistic look that you desire is possible. Generally, the goal is to achieve a natural shape that provides a toned, healthy look to your legs in line with your specific body shape.

Immediately after the procedure, you may feel some discomfort but you’ll be able to walk straight after.

The local anaesthesia used in this procedure means patients can often leave our surgery within 30 minutes of completion. Those who have a physically low-impact job should be able to return to work comfortably in about two to three days. It is quite normal to experience slight swelling, inflammation, or minimal pain in the legs, all of which will subside naturally.

The amount of scarring as a result of this procedure is very minimal, for two reasons:

  • 1.    Skin elasticity is improved thanks to the stimulation of collagen during the procedure
  • 2.    The process only requires a small cannula which means only a minimal incision is made.

During the thigh and leg liposuction procedure, the fat removed will not return. However, if you don’t maintain a healthy lifestyle, the remaining fat cells can expand. So we recommend that all patients ensure they maintain a healthy lifestyle, with exercise and a good diet to maximise the longevity of their results.
