Also known as thighplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to reshape and tone the thighs by removing excess skin and fat. This procedure is often sought after by individuals who have lost significant amounts of weight or have loose, sagging skin due to aging.
During the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision in the inner thigh or in the groin area, depending on the extent of the surgery needed. They will then remove excess skin and fat, and tighten the remaining tissue to create a smoother, more toned appearance. The incisions will be closed with sutures or surgical tape.
Before the procedure
Patients should consult with their surgeon to discuss their goals and expectations for the surgery. They may need to undergo certain medical tests to ensure that they are healthy enough to undergo surgery. The surgeon may also provide specific instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, such as what medications to avoid and what to eat and drink before surgery.
After the procedure
Patients will need to take time to recover. They may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several days to a few weeks. The surgeon may prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort. Patients should avoid strenuous activities and lifting heavy objects for several weeks after surgery to prevent complications. They may also need to wear compression garments to help with healing and reduce swelling.
The results of thigh lift surgery can be long-lasting, but they can be affected by weight gain or loss, pregnancy, and the natural aging process. Patients should also be aware that they may have visible scars after surgery, although these will fade over time.
