Excess fat and skin may be present in your thigh region post weight loss, which can be addressed with a thigh lift procedure. Aging and genetic factors may also contribute to skin laxity and skin excess in this region, exacerbating these concerns. A thigh lift procedure is designed to improve the contour of the inner thigh and address stubborn fat deposits and excess skin that may be present. A thigh lift may be performed in conjunction with other body contour procedures, such as abdominoplasty and brachioplasty surgeries.
Reasons for Considering
Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time. As the body recuperates, the patient can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Medication can be prescribed to relieve any pain caused by the procedure. The stitches will be removed shortly after the surgery depending on the procedure(s) involved. A supportive garment is worn for several weeks after surgery. While complications are rare, you can minimize the risk of potential problems by carefully following the post-surgical directions given by Dr Goh.
