This is a 40-year-old woman who had bilateral lateral thigh excess. She is very unhappy with her appearance. She got self-conscious and was unable to go to the beach without wearing a cover-up. She did have cool sculpting, which improved one side but actually left her with a contour irregularity. She is a regular walker and exerciser. She walks 18 to 22 miles per week.
The patient underwent bilateral lateral thigh liposuction. At the time of her surgery, she has 2 L of fat removed. Postoperatively, the patient was very excited about the appearance of her lateral thighs. She felt very comfortable wearing a swimsuit without a cover-up.
