Are you dealing with excess fat or skin on your thighs that refuses to respond to diet and exercise? As a person ages, the skin and fat on their thighs can start to sag. Diet and exercise often produces only a marginal improvement. This can be frustrating. Luckily, there are procedures that can be done to improve the appearance and definition of your thighs, such as a thigh lift.
A thigh lift, or thighplasty, is a cosmetic procedure done to remove excess skin, fat or tissue from the upper legs. Many people get a thigh lift after they have lost a lot of weight and have been left with a lot of excess skin and fat deposits that they can’t get rid of. This procedure can make your upper legs look more toned and smooth.
Types of Thigh Lifts
There are several different types of thigh lift variations, and you will be able to choose one based on Dr. Hendrick’s recommendations during the consultation. Here at Southeastern Dermatology we offer both a medial and an outer thigh lift. During the procedure, our board-certified surgeon will remove some skin and fat and tighten the remaining skin to make the thigh look more shapely and defined.
During a consultation, our medical team will examine your thighs to make sure they are healthy and go over your medical history. A thigh lift can be used in conjunction with liposuction to enhance your desired results. It is important to say that while a thigh lift does remove excess fat, it is not an overall weight loss solution. To be a good candidate for a thigh lift, you should be healthy and have a stable weight.
While you will be able to see results after the procedure, the full results will not be visible until several weeks after your procedure. While you recover from the procedure, you need to follow the recovery guidelines given to you by our professional medical team. Once you have fully recovered, your results can be long-lasting as long as you keep a healthy lifestyle.
