Many patients are unhappy with their thighs. Excess fat, wrinkles, folds, and cellulite tend to accumulate in the upper thighs and leave patients feeling self-conscious and unwilling to wear shorts or bathing suits. Age, genetics, and weight fluctuations can affect the size and shape of the thighs. A thigh lift tightens, reshapes, and improves the look of the thighs.
Candidates for a Thigh Lift
If you are unhappy with the size or appearance of your thighs and diet and exercise have proven unhelpful, a thigh lift can help. Candidates should be in good general health, be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for surgery. A thigh lift is not a weight loss procedure and is not intended strictly to remove excess fat – liposuction is recommended for fat removal.
During a thigh lift procedure, an incision is made near the groin which allows the scar to be strategically hidden. Excess fat and skin tissue are removed while the remaining skin is reshaped and tightened, resulting in smoother skin and better definition in the thigh. A thigh lift will better define and shape the thigh.
Results from a thigh lift are visible immediately with continued improvements over several months. Patients usually return to work within a week after a thigh lift. Dr. Nima may recommend a compression garment to reduce swelling and improve healing. Patients should avoid putting too much stress on the thighs for several weeks.
