Commonly the lower half of the body is a larger size than the top half and clothes fit poorly. Many women have a 'body in 2 halves'. They are quite slender and happy with their appearance from the waist up, but the areas from the hips down are another story. Here its as though the thighs belong to another person. They are heavy and they bulge. With liposculpture it is possible to bring these two halves of the body back into proportion. Some women find that the inner thighs rub together and the skin of the inner thighs is irritated. Liposculpture can eliminate this problem, or at least make it much better.
