You aren’t alone if your thighs are giving you grief. Typically, problems with the skin on your thighs arise from two factors – our genetics, and weight loss. Those of us who experience significant weight loss are left with excess skin that may appear unsightly or inhibit your daily life. Alternatively, you can be genetically predisposed to problems with the skin on your thighs and that may prevent you from achieving your body image goals. If you find yourself frustrated and unable to smooth the skin on your thighs naturally, you should consider a thigh lift procedure.
A thigh lift may be the way for you to achieve a smooth and toned look on your thighs.
What Is a Thigh Lift?
Just like the name implies, a thigh lift is a cosmetic surgery that reduces the amount of excess skin on your thighs, creating smoother skin and a more toned appearance. It is not uncommon for a thigh lift procedure to include liposuction in addition to the removal of skin, though it is all contingent upon the patient’s needs. When performed by an expert, a thigh lift is a way to achieve younger looking legs.
Who Should Consider a Thigh Lift?
Anyone that is unhappy with the way that their thighs look and are unable to achieve the look that they want to through natural means should consider a thigh lift procedure.
The most important factor before considering any procedure at all is your personal health. Surgical procedures, even the simple ones, will put strain on the body that is not normally present. Prior to scheduling your thigh lift, check with your doctor to ensure that your health is in optimal condition for such a procedure.
During the Procedure
During a thigh lift, your plastic surgeon removes the excess skin from your inner and outer thighs, as well as any unnecessary fat deposits in the area. The remaining skin will then be carefully and precisely lifted and stitched in the appropriate areas to achieve a smooth and toned look to the thigh.
What Happens After the Procedure?
Once the surgery is complete, following a proper program for thigh lift recovery is essential to maintain the progress. At first, your bandages need to be replaced regularly and you will have thin tubes temporarily placed under your skin to drain excess fluid. It’s also important to keep the surgery incisions safe from excessive force and movement. Be sure to check with your doctor for further tips about caring for your body after surgery.
