What is a thigh lift?
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that corrects the aesthetics of the thighs as well as the discomfort caused by excess slack skin. The goal is to restore a normal size to the thighs in relation to your body type so that you can regain a harmonious body shape.
Indications for cosmetic surgery of the thighs
If you have excess skin on the inner thighs and it bothers you on a daily basis, a thigh liftmay be the solution to correct this. Symptoms related to this excess skin are usually discomfort, when walking, irritation of the inner thighs, difficulty getting dressed, or aesthetics of the legs (disharmony of the body).
During your appointment, your doctor will determine the solution that best suits your needs.
A healthy lifestyle, a healthy diet and quitting smoking at least one month before the procedure will contribute to a smooth procedure and a good recovery.
Thigh lift: the procedure
A general anesthetic is necessary. The surgical incisions will be made on the inner side of the thighs so that the scar is as discreet as possible. The doctor then proceeds to the removal of the excess skin, and to the suction of the fat if necessary. Drains will then be placed to facilitate the evacuation of liquids after the operation. Finally, a bandage is applied.
