What is a Thigh Lift?
The thigh lift procedure tightens the skin around the inner part of the thigh to create a beautifully framed appearance. During a thigh lift, the outer part of the thigh is usually not performed upon as it is better targeted for liposuction or a butt lift to produce a more appropriate result for that part of the thigh. During the procedure an incision of varying depth is made depending upon the amount of skin that is being removed from the patient, this incision is normally placed on the medial side of the thigh.
What to Expect During a Thigh Lift Procedure
Discomfort levels vary depending on the amount of skin that is removed, when larger amounts of skin are removed, you may need an overnight stay in the hospital, though for smaller lifts there may be mild discomfort and patients can return home several hours after the procedure. Anti-inflammatory and pain medications will be provided.
Thigh Lift Recovery
After two weeks patients can return to light labor, though patients should refrain from any major physical activity for at least four to six weeks. Symptoms should wear off and scars faded within six months.
