Transform the appearance of your thighs by removing sagginess and improving the contour
About Thigh Lift Surgery
The contour and size of your legs are influenced by many factors including your genetics, general aging, stretching of your skin when your weight changes and even pregnancy, can lead to excess skin and fat that is hard to address through diet and exercise alone. Your thighs will rarely ‘bounce back’ once these changes have occurred and there is no external treatment that will completely solve this problem but thigh lift surgery can!
Men and women over 18 years of age with excess skin and/or skin and fat of the thighs.
The thighs from hip to knee.
It is important to be in good health and at a maintainable weight prior to surgery. If you are being treated for any chronic health condition, such as high blood pressure, we will require surgical clearance from your primary care physician prior to surgery. For surgeries requiring general anesthesia, a current EKG and basic blood work are also required. All of these precautions will contribute to a swift and uncomplicated free recovery.
Recovery from a thigh lift poses a few unique challenges that are easily overcome with a bit of planning. Due to the location of, and the tension on the incision, you will need to limit your time spent sitting for 2-4 weeks post op. This includes driving so you will need to plan for help driving for a couple of weeks. Some thigh lifts require surgical drains that will be in place for several days or up to one week.
