Patients seek out a thigh lift to give their thighs a more toned and tightened appearance. If this is something you may be interested in, schedule a consultation with a Lincoln Surgical plastic surgeon!
A thigh lift can give your thighs a toned and tightened look by tucking and lifting the skin.
For patients who have excess or sagging skin in the thighs due to extreme weight loss or the effects of aging, our plastic surgeon can perform a thigh lift surgery to give your thighs a smoother, more toned look and boost your confidence!
For a medial thigh lift operation, your surgeon will make incisions to tighten and remove unwanted skin. She will use sutures to keep the thigh from sagging after the healing process. The procedure can be modified depending on whether you need minor work or complete reshaping due to massive weight loss. Your surgeon can also perform a medial thigh lift in conjunction with a lower body lift, thereby improving contour on both the outer and inner thigh.
If there is excess fat that needs to be removed, liposuction may be performed during the thigh lift procedure.
A thigh lift procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes around three to four hours. Because you may have elastic compression garments to reduce swelling and keep the shape of your thighs during healing, complete recovery can take anywhere from four to six weeks.
