Very often, women find that they are unhappy with the look and shape of their thighs. While excess fat in the thigh area can be improved with proper diet and exercise, liposuction can also play a big role in achieving your goals for a slim, beautifully sculpted physique. It can become much harder to change the appearance of one’s thighs as we get older, or even after experiencing extreme weight loss. Under these circumstances, loose, sagging skin and soft-tissue can only be corrected with the assistance of a thigh lift. Dr. Prichard provides the option of a thigh lift surgery (also referred to as thighplasty) to those looking to achieve leaner, more youthful looking thighs.
About the thigh lift procedure
This is implemented to support improvements to the contour and appearance of the patient’s inner thigh area. The distinctive types of thigh lift techniques that are available are widespread, all of which are constructed to address particular physical burdens. Routinely, when performing a thigh lift, the incisions are discreetly positioned within the patient’s naturally occurring folds along the upper leg. By using this method for the thigh lift surgery, the incisions should be practically hidden from sight, once you have fully healed. Through these meticulously situated incisions, any excess skin and fat are carefully removed. The remaining tissue is then reshaped and repositioned to create the look of smoother, firmer and more youthful upper thighs.
During thigh lift recovery
After your thigh lift surgery, the addressed areas are bandaged, so as to help minimize swelling and promote proper healing. You may use cold compresses to manage any bruising or swelling. Typically, most patients feel able to go back to work within a week or so. The complexity of your surgery will determine how much downtime you may have. For example, it is very common for patients to choose to undergo additional body contouring procedures in combination with their thigh lift surgery, such as a buttocks rejuvenation or a tummy tuck procedure.
