This 30-year-old woman is a pharmacist who came to Dr. Galante for a liposuction consultation at his Schererville, Indiana, office. She wanted to get rid of excess fat on her inner thighs as well as her outer thighs (sometimes referred to as saddle bags). Some people are genetically predisposed to storing excess fat in these areas of the legs and find it practically impossible to slim down in spite of consistent exercise and a healthy diet. Liposuction is an ideal solution for this type of concern.

Dr. Galante performed the surgery at the Lake Park Surgery Center in Hobart as an outpatient procedure. He used the tumescent liposuction technique while the patient was under monitored anesthesia care (MAC), which combines local anesthesia with sedation. While MAC is not appropriate for all procedures, it is often useful for minor surgeries such as this one. MAC typically requires a shorter recuperation while keeping patients just as comfortable as they would be if they had undergone general anesthesia.

After areas are numb and the patient is resting comfortably, Dr. Galante inserts a thin, metal tube called a cannula through a few tiny incisions and carefully suctions away the unwanted fat.

Liposuction patients are encouraged to wear a compression garment for approximately a month to reduce swelling and create smooth contours. Swelling usually goes down within 2 or 3 weeks.

For more information about liposuction and other body contouring options, request a complimentary consultation online with Dr. Galante at either of his 2 offices.
