Case Number: 21


This 32 year old woman who works at Lake Forest Hospital was frustrated that, despite regular diet and exercise, especially since having given birth to her 3 children, she was unable to achieve improvement in her thigh areas, which was always a “problem spot” for her.  Her weight was down to 135, but her (resistant) thighs looked and felt disproportionately large for her, so she came in asking about her options for liposuction.  She knew that there were a multitude of plastic surgeons in Barrington and Highland Park, IL, who performed liposuction and body contouring, but she elected to have her surgery performed locally, knowing that I was able to provide the modern option of ultrasound-assisted liposuction through the Hollister Building outpatient surgery center in Libertyville near routes 60 and 21.

She had this performed as an outpatient under light general anesthesia, at which time approximately 550 cc of fatty aspirate was removed from the right lateral thigh and 600cc from the left.  She also had 175cc removed from the inner thighs bilaterally. Foam padding was applied to the areas treated (to minimize bruising and swelling), after which a specialized girdle was placed (to be worn for 2-4 weeks).  Post-op photos are shown from approximately 7 months post-surgery.

The patient healed very well, and ultimately was very pleased that these prominent areas of her thighs had been brought back into much better proportion with the rest of her body.   If you have experienced frustration with fatty deposits of the abdomen, back, hips, flanks, thighs, arms or neck that just don’t respond to honest trials of diet or exercise, maybe liposuction can help you too.  Just call to schedule your consultation today.
