Who Is a Candidate for Thigh Lift Surgery?
Thigh lift surgery is a suitable body sculpting treatment for individuals who are unhappy with the shape and size of their thighs. It is usually performed on post-bariatric surgery patients who wish to eliminate excess skin left over after massive weight loss. Individuals considering thigh lift surgery must be in good general health and close to their ideal weight. Dr. Sundine will carefully review your candidacy for the procedure during a one-on-one consultation.
The Thigh Lift Procedure in Newport Beach
When performing thigh lift surgery, Dr. Sundine focuses on removing any excess fat and sagging skin. The thigh lift surgery technique and incision location that he chooses to use will depend on which part of the thigh needs to be reshaped.
- Inner thigh lift involves incisions in the groin fold.
- Vertical thigh lift involves an incision that starts at the groin crease and extends down to the knee.
- Outer thigh lift requires an incision that starts at the groin and extends around the hip to correct sagging of the outer and mid-thigh.
During a thigh lift, excess skin is removed and the remaining skin and tissue are lifted and sutured in place. Thigh lift may be combined with liposuction to remove excess fat.
Thigh lift surgery is performed at an accredited outpatient surgical center under general anesthesia. In some cases, several thigh lift surgery techniques are combined for the best results. The length of surgery greatly depends on each your treatment plan, and on the complexity of the procedure.
Recovering from Thigh Lift Surgery
The good news with procedures like thigh lift and arm lift is that the results are visible right away. After thigh lift surgery, you will experience bruising, swelling and soreness for a few days. These are minimized with pain medication, bandages and proper at-home aftercare. The swelling generally subsides over a period of three to five weeks. Gauze is used to cover the incisions to keep them safe and dry. Full recovery is achieved within six weeks of surgery. During this period, Dr. Sundine will be at your disposal at all times to answer your questions and guide you through the healing process.
