Thigh lift surgery is a solution to sagging thigh skin. The procedure helps redefine, tighten and re-contour the thighs and lower body.
Benefits of a thigh lift are improved contour and smoother, tighter skin on the thighs. Patients feel more confident wearing shorts or skirts and typically experience a significant boost in self-esteem.
About The Thigh Lift Procedure
Many thigh lift procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to return home the day of surgery. General anesthesia is used during the procedure.
Step one is the incision, which may be placed in different areas depending on the amount of contouring and tightening required. Many incisions start in the groin area and extend to the buttocks or down the legs.
Typically, the longer the incision, the easier it is to tighten the skin and contour the thigh. To avoid scarring, plastic surgeons will make the incision as short as possible
Once the incision is made, excess skin (and fat, if necessary) is removed, and the remaining skin is tightened and contoured to improve the overall shape of the thighs. Support sutures may be used to help shape and hold the tissues as well.
Immediately after surgery, dressings are placed over wounds. Patients will be given compression garments to provide support and reduce swelling throughout the healing process.
In some cases, temporary drain tubes may be placed for a week or so. Patients should wait one to three weeks before returning to everyday activities, depending on the extent of the procedure and the patient’s unique healing speed.
Patients can speed up the process and improve the outcome of the surgery by following all surgeon instructions for aftercare.
