A Thigh Lift surgery also known as Thighplasty, reshapes the thighs, by removing the excess of skin and fat resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the upper legs. Fat cells, cellulite, and excess skin can accumulate on the thighs. For many people, thighs become problematic are as they age. While others, exercise efforts have not helped them achieved their body goals, a Surgical Lift may be the right choice in these cases.
The doctor will make marks on your thighs which serve as a surgical guide. Regional anesthesia is administered. An incision is made in your thigh, according to the incision pattern you and the surgeon have chosen.
Small amounts of stubborn fat deposits, as well as soft tissue, will be removed. If you have more significant unwanted fat in your thighs, liposuction may be performed for better results. Deep sutures within underlying tissues help to form and support the newly shaped contours.
The incisions will be bandaged and a small thin tube will be placed to drain the excess of blood or fluid. The incisions should not be subjected to excessive force, swelling or a lot of motion during the time of healing. As inflammation diminishes and you fully recover from surgery, the patient should notice a skin quality improvement in appearance and feel, plus younger-looking thighs.
