If you are thinking about getting thigh liposuction you should first understand what body types make good candidates for this surgery, as well as the realistic results of the surgery. If you have significant areas of fat in the inner or outer thighs, this is the first level of positive assessment. But it's not the last. If you've tried a regular diet and exercise regime and you're still not seeing a reduction of fat in the thigh area, you could be a good candidate for liposuction. However, you should not have potentially surgery-complicating diseases or such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Asthma can also make surgery and recovery more difficult. Since thigh liposuction will result in temporary immobility and pain, you should also be in good spirits and mentally healthy before surgery to avoid post-op depression. Be aware that your health insurance most likely will not cover the cost cover thigh liposuction. Speak with your surgeon about financing and/or loans that may be available to pay for your procedure.
