Liposuction of the thighs is a very popular liposuction procedure with very high patient satisfaction. Many women, regardless of age, accumulate fat deposits on their outer thighs. The amount of thigh fat is determined primarily by genetics, and can occur even in thin women. Bulky thighs are mostly hereditary, and can increase dramatically in size after puberty. Also, after pregnancy, there is mostly an excessive accumulation of fat in the thigh area. This can be a great source of frustration to women because regardless of how much she exercises and adheres to good eating habits, these genetically predisposed saddle bags can stubbornly persist.
