Am I A Good Candidate For A Thigh Lift?

Thigh lifts remove excess skin and fat from the inner and outer thighs. This procedure is mainly used after a bariatric or substantial weight loss, which leaves behind extra skin and sometimes unproportioned pockets of fat. It can also be used for patients who have tried dieting and exercise and still can’t seem to tone and shape their thighs. Sometimes liposuction will be added to the thigh lift procedure to assist in the removal of excess fat and to help shape and sculpt the thighs. Some reasons you might want to get a thigh lift include: The effects of aging have created sagging, cellulite and loose skin on your thighs You have extra skin after substantial weight loss and you want your legs to match your new toned and shapely figure You are having issues with clothing because of your heavy thighs Your thighs make you feel self-conscious As with any cosmetic procedure, there are things to consider when you are thinking about getting a thigh lift.

The Do’s And Dont’s Following A Thigh Lift

Sometimes no matter how much you exercise and how strictly you follow a healthy diet, that extra tissue and hanging skin in the thighs area will just not go away. A surgical thigh lift can certainly help you address this issue by reshaping and recontouring of the thighs. A common surgical technique involves placing incisions in the groin that go downward and wrap around the back of the thigh. The tissue in that area is then tightened, and the skin reduced and reshaped. A thigh lift surgery itself does not last long – generally 3-4 hours, and although performed under general anesthesia, the procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis, which means you can go home the same day. You will see the results almost immediately, but it will take a few months for the final contoured, smooth look to develop. You must follow your doctor’s specific instructions for your after-care, but here are some general do’s and don’ts for the recovery period. Don’ts Don’t eat any solids for a few hours after your surgery (anesthesia can cause nausea). Stick to a liquid diet for the first few hours. Don’t shower for a couple of days.

What Are The Benefits Of A Thigh Lift After Weight Loss?

The unfortunate thing about weight loss that ads never tell you, is that it’s much less likely for skin to shrink than to stretch. In most cases, skin will never fully tighten up to match your new body, leading to loose and unsightly folds. This sucks, because losing weight is an extremely impressive accomplishment, and it would be nice if all that effort led to the perfect body. That’s left to the magic of thigh lifts though. Benefits of thigh lifts include: Skin Tightening The basic benefit of thigh lifts is the removal of excess skin, causing the skin to tighten against the muscle layer for super-hot thighs and butt. This returns the skin to pre-weight-gain tightness and makes it seems as if this was always how your bottom looked. Contouring In addition to tightening the skin, thigh lifts also offer a chance to recontour the shape of the thighs and butt. With the right cuts and contours, a surgeon can enhance the skin to hold existing fat in a more attractive way: tightening the legs and butt, pushing fat from the thighs upwards, and enhancing the sexy inner thigh curve. Removal of Residual Fat Deposits Full liposuction is no substitute for a lifestyle change, but a thigh lift is…
