A thigh lift is done to remove excess skin from the thigh and buttock area. This sagging skin is usually caused by weight loss. So, after patients lose a lot of weight, having this surgery done is like “ICING ON CAKE”.
THE SURGICAL PROCEDURE
The inner thigh lifts are done with incisions over the inner thigh, hidden in the groin crease. Outer thigh and buttock lifts are done with incisions extending from the groin around the back. These are well hidden by bathing suits. All of the scars fade with time.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER SURGERY
Patients may spend their first night in an overnight care facility. Bruising and swelling are to be expected as well as a “TIGHT” feeling in the thighs.
