What Patients Should Know About Thigh Lift Surgery
By Dr. Suzanne Yee on September 15, 2013
When it comes to looking your absolute best, it's important to consider all of your options for advanced plastic surgery. There are plenty of options for body contouring that can make a major difference to your overall figure, and that's especially true when it comes to the overall appearance of the thighs.
The team at the practice would like to take a few moments right now to go over some of the basics about thigh lift surgery and why it's a good option to consider for advanced body sculpting.
Body Contour Issues with the Thighs
Weight gain and weight loss can cause major changes to your overall body contour. This is particularly true with the thighs. Many times people will notice drooping, sagging, or flabby portions of the thighs, which can be aesthetically off-putting. In addition, the natural aging process can also contribute to poor appearance of the thighs, with loose or sagging skin being a common issue.
About Thigh Lift Surgery
This is where the thigh lift can be a major help. A thigh lift surgery is performed by a cosmetic plastic surgeon in order to improve the overall contour and appearance of the thighs. There are different areas of the thighs that can be targeted by this surgery to meet the needs of the patient.
Ideal Candidates for Thigh Lift Surgery
The best candidates for thigh lift surgery are people who have issues with the overall contour and appearance of their thighs. These patients should be in otherwise good health and not suffer from any kinds of health problems that would make the surgery a health risk. Realistic expectations about the surgical procedure and post-surgical scarring are also important to consider.
The Thigh Lift Surgery Procedure
As we mentioned above, the thigh lift surgery can target different parts of the thighs. Since this is the case, the surgical procedure and incisions will vary based on the needs of the patient. These incisions are usually located in the groin area and the upper portion of the hips, areas which are well hidden by most undergarments and bathing suits. The exact incision method can be discussed during your visit to the practice.
Regardless the incision sites, the overall procedure is generally the same. Using carefully placed incisions, the plastic surgeon removes excess skin from the thighs. Targeted liposuction is used to remove pockets of fat and improve overall contour. The remaining skin is pulled tighter to ensure the best possible appearance of the thighs.
Other Options for Body Contouring Surgery
In addition to thigh lift surgery, there are plenty of other options for body sculpting that can make you look your absolute best. This include lift surgeries for the buttocks, the hips, the abdominal area, and many other parts of the body. We can go over all of these options in greater detail during your consultation so that a complete body lift makeover can be designed.
