A Thigh Lift can reduce the amount of sagging skin on the outer or inner thighs. It can be especially beneficial to patients who not also have experienced weight loss, but also to those that even though they work out daily it’s just not cutting it, this procedure can provide desirable results to just about anyone who would like toned and sculpted thighs.
If you’re looking to tighten the skin around your thighs and get rid of sagging, hanging skin, then a Thigh Lift is the way to go.
You will be given anesthesia so that you will be comfortable during the surgical procedures.
The Thigh Lift procedure can be perform with one go this two techniques: inner incision or outer incision.
The inner incision removes excess skin from the groin down to the knee using an incision along.
The outer incision Improves the contours of the outer thigh, requiring an incision extending from the groin around the hip and across the back.
Deep sutures within underlying tissues help to form and support the newly shaped contours. Sutures, skin adhesive tapes or clips may be used to close the skin incisions.
The smoother tighter contouring that results from a Thigh Lift is apparent almost immediately, although initially obscured by swelling and bruising.
Removal of tissue from the inner thigh or medial thigh will leave an incision along the groin crease. This requires 2-3 weeks of healing. You should take it very easy the first two weeks after surgery. You can resume most activities usually by three weeks.
Larger thigh reductions, such as a lower body lift (which addresses the buttocks/posterior thigh, hips/lateral thigh, and anterior thigh), may require 4 to 6 weeks of recovery. The longer the incision, the longer the time required to allow them to heal. Expect bruising and swelling it is completely normal, it will fade with time.
In all recovery process rest is the key to a good outcome, resting and following the indications given to you by your Patient Coordinator, always follow the indications given to by Dr. Luis Suarez, any other indication given by other Doctors are not be followed since every Doctor has his own way of working any alternation can contribute to a bad outcome.
