We report our experience in 50 patients who underwent liposuction surgery of the
lateral thighs with or without concomitant liposuction surgery of the hip and
buttock areas. This procedure has proven to be a remarkably safe and effective
method for removal of fat in properly selected individuals. The operation avoids
the problems of blood loss and scarring associated with other operations used to
remove fat and makes for extremely satisfied patients.
