Who doesn’t want well sculpted and toned thighs? Many women desire toned legs that will look good in that perfect bikini or those favorite pair of shorts. However, a great deal of women tend to accumulate stubborn fat around their thighs that’s really difficult to get rid of. Even if someone is following a strict diet and workout plan, most people may not see the results they really want.

If this sounds like you, then you can rest easier because there’s a great surgical procedure that’s perfectly suited for this problem. It is a type of plastic surgery known as a thigh lift.

What Is A Thigh Lift?

A thigh lift is a highly focused plastic surgery that works to improve your thighs by removing any excess fat and skin and contouring them to look more toned and sculpted. It also makes your thighs appear smoother, giving you that dream body and a confidence boost when you’re wearing clothes that compliment your figure.

The Thigh Lift Procedure

A thigh lift procedure works like any other type of invasive surgery. Depending on how much fat needs to be removed, your cosmetic surgeon will choose which technique to use. In most cases, the standard thigh lift method that concentrates on the inner thighs is used.

Your cosmetic surgeon will make incisions near the border of the pubic area and along your thigh. They are strategically placed to limit the visibility of any resulting post-surgical marks. The surgeon will then remove the excess layers of fat as required to reach your individual goals.

After this, he will tighten and shape the remaining skin to give your thighs that toned and sculpted look. Once this is done, the incision will be closed with sutures to ensure proper healing and minimal post-surgical marks.

Post-Operative Care

This surgery is done under local or general anesthesia. The extent of the surgery varies depending on the nature of the changes you want in your thighs. Once the incisions are closed, the treatment area will be bandaged.

Your surgeon may also wrap your thighs in an elastic bandage so that the swelling around the thighs reduces. This can also help heal the treatment area much faster. In some cases, a thin tube may be inserted under the skin to collect any excess blood or fluid that may accumulate after the surgery. The tube is temporary and will be removed as the excess blood and fluids lessen.

Make sure that you have someone available to drive you home after the surgery to make sure you arrive safely. In addition to this, you will also require the help with certain actions from a friend or family member you can trust.

It is recommended that you take two to three weeks off from work to recuperate after your surgery. If your thigh lift is extensive, then you may need more rest so plan accordingly. As is the case with any invasive surgery, you must avoid extremely physical and strenuous activities for a week or two after the surgery.

Your doctor will provide you with post-operative care instructions that you should follow in order to ensure a quick recovery and the best results possible. If you feel any sort of discomfort, you will also be provided with medication to help ease it away.

Before undergoing the surgery, you should do your homework and speak to your plastic surgeon in detail before you go for a thigh lift surgery. It is important to set realistic goals and expectations before you’re considered a good candidate for the surgery.

You can discuss the details of the surgical process with your surgeon during a consultation.
