If you have loose skin and fat on your thighs and are too embarrassed to go swimming or wear shorts in warm weather, or you are upset that you’ve worked hard for muscular thighs and can’t see the results, a thigh lift may be the right choice for you.
Preparing for a Thigh Lift
Before this procedure is performed, we will consult with you and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. As a thigh lift is an elective procedure, you can increase your chances of a quick recovery period and an optimal outcome if you take time to prepare yourself before your surgery date. Our team will help you with this. Ideally, you will want to be in peak physical shape, well-nourished and at a healthy, steady weight.
A Look at the Surgical Procedure
Thigh lifts are accomplished much like tummy tucks, just on a different area of the body. Although the details of each thigh lift vary from patient to patient, during a typical procedure, our surgeon removes excess skin and fat. This leaves your thighs tight and more toned without the excess skin and bulges of unwanted fat.
Recovering from a Thigh Lift
Since a thigh lift is a surgical cosmetic procedure, there is a recovery period involved. It is important to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing during this time and take it as easy as possible for optimal results. Once you have fully recovered from your procedure, you can enjoy the results for years to come, so long as you continue to live a healthy lifestyle.
