What is a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that addresses sagging or excess skin in the legs in order to produce a more youthful and toned appearance. The legs are often a problem area for patients of all ages, but the aging process makes these difficulties even more pronounced. If you are struggling with the appearance of sagging skin, cellulite or stubborn fat in the legs, a thigh lift may be a good solution. The thigh lift procedure can remove excess skin and tighten the remaining skin to enhance the contours of the legs. Many patients also choose to combine this procedure with a butt lift for even greater results.
How Much Does a Thigh Lift Cost?
The cost of a thigh lift at Envision Cosmetic Surgery will vary depending on your treatment goals and the techniques that will be used to fulfill those goals. We encourage all interested patients to schedule a consultation with Dr. Dunkley, so that you can discuss your needs and determine the treatment plan that is right for you. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. In an effort to make our services more affordable and accessible, we are proud to offer a variety of financing options to our patients.
What Happens During the Thigh Lift Procedure?
The thigh lift procedure is performed with the aid of anesthetics to ensure your complete comfort and safety for the duration of the procedure. To begin treatment, incisions are made on the inside of the legs, typically near the groin. This incision may stretch downwards towards the knee, or around the back of the leg, depending on your particular treatment. These locations help to ensure that scarring will be discreet and easily hidden by most clothing. Dr. Dunkley will discuss the exact details of these incisions during your consultation. Once incisions are made, excess skin will be removed and tightened to produce the desired results.
What is Recovery Like After a Thigh Lift?
After a thigh lift procedure, it is important that patients are able to rest and recuperate as much as possible in the immediate weeks. We encourage patients to take one to two weeks away from work and other obligations in order to heal. Any strenuous activities should be avoided for at least two months after surgery. Furthermore, you may need to adjust certain activities to avoid stressing the incision locations. Dr. Dunkley will be able to provide you with further instruction based on your particular treatment plan.
How Long Do the Results of a Thigh Lift Last?
Residual swelling and bruising can persist for several weeks after a thigh lift, so don’t be concerned if your results aren’t what you expected right away. However, once these side effects do resolve, you can enjoy permanent results from your thigh lift. It is important to remember that future weight gain or aging can impact these results, so patients are encouraged to practice healthy lifestyle habits following their procedure.
