What is the best treatment to get rid of Saddlebags deformity?
Saddlebags deformity is the accumulation of fat within the areas on outer thighs, which creates a bulge. It is also called ‘cellulite’ in medical terms. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and can’t keep up with the fluid or fat being deposited in these areas.
The shape and size of these bags varies from person to person. Women are at higher risk for this condition than men as they progress into middle age due to hormonal changes.
The most common surgery treatment is liposuction which may not always be successful depending on the amount of loose skin present in the thighs.
Treatment Saddle bag deformity
Liposuction is a surgical procedure where excess fat is removed from the human body using a tube with a small, rotating blade. The technique is often used in cases of severe obesity, and sometimes for cosmetic reasons as well.
Liposuction can be performed on various parts of the body, but most commonly it is done on the abdomen and thighs, as these are the areas where fat tends to accumulate the most. Body parts such as the chest, neck and face might also be treated with liposuction if they produce excess fat that spills over onto other areas.
There is also a method of keeping liposuction fat, which is not too costly or invasive. This method is called “tumescent liposuction” and it involves using a solution to numb the area before the procedure.
It is a low-cost and less invasive than traditional liposuction.
Tumescent liposuction is a surgical procedure in which a substance, usually a combination of lidocaine and epinephrine, is injected into the fatty areas to cause localized swelling. The goal is to make the fat being treated more evident so that it can be more precisely removed with less risk of damage to underlying tissues.
Recovery after saddlebags deformity surgery
Recovery after saddle bag deformity surgery is a lengthy process that can take anywhere from six weeks to six months. This is because the patient needs to gradually restore the strength in their abdominal muscles as well as ensure that they are comfortable with their new body shape. Patients will experience soreness and swelling but for few days only. The use of ice packs, compression garments, and strong pain relief medications is recommended to help with the discomfort.
Patients will notice a difference in their shape as they heal but they should not be alarmed. They may also experience some numbness around the incision site which will fade with time.
Patients should avoid lifting heavy items, being on their feet all day, or anything strenuous during the first 6 to 8 weeks after the surgery.
Patients should also limit the use of tanning beds or sun exposure for at least 6 months following surgery due to risk of burning from UV rays.
