A thigh lift can reduce excess skin and fat around your upper legs to give your thighs a smoother, more proportioned appearance. At Grossman Plastic Surgery in Denver, our board certified plastic surgeons will use this body procedure to work with your natural curves to create attractive thigh contours that flow well with the rest of your body.
For an initial consultation to discuss the different aspects of a thigh lift, please call (866) 221-9665 to arrange a visit to our Denver office.
Medial Thigh Lift
A medial thigh lift requires a small incision in the crease between your leg and your groin area. This lift is appropriate for reshaping your inner thigh. Once one of our board-certified plastic surgeons makes the initial incision, he will tighten the underlying tissue and remove excess skin to provide a more pleasing contour for your inner thigh. Liposuction is usually performed with either kind of thigh lift to remove excess fat.
Outer Thigh Lift
In order to reshape your outer thigh, your plastic surgeon will make an incision in the crease between your leg and groin area and extend the incision up over your hip where your leg connects to your hip. Similar to the medial thigh lift, the doctor will remove excess skin and fat and reshape your outer thigh for a more attractive appearance.
If you have lost an extreme amount of weight and are concerned about the appearance of your lower body as a whole, you may want to consider a lower body lift to remedy the sagging skin in your abdomen, hips, and buttocks.
Thigh Lift Recovery
Like any plastic surgery procedure, a thigh lift will require some down time for your body to fully recover. You will experience some swelling and bruising the first few days following surgery.
You will likely need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks to help minimize swelling and support your tissues as you heal. Once your body recovers, you will see the figure-slimming results and be able to enjoy the dramatic improvement in the look and feel of your skin.
A thigh lift will leave scars in the incision areas, but since the incisions are made in your leg crease, they are easily covered with clothing or bathing suits. The scars will fade over time and leave you with a physique you can truly appreciate.
