Q:

I am a middle aged female and have been working very hard to lose weight on my thighs, with no success. Is there a surgical procedure that I can have with relatively quick results but not have to go under general anesthesia?

A:

If your problem is localized to your thighs you could be a candidate for liposuction. This procedure can be done under sedation and local infiltration or under spinal anesthesia. The results are generally very good. There will be however, some restrictions in your activities after your surgery and you will have to wear a special garment for several weeks. Your plastic surgeon will be able to provide you with detailed information based on your body build and personal requirements.
