People who have successfully lost a substantial amount of weight are often left with excess skin on their bodies, including the thighs. Have you experienced weight loss, but due to sagging, excess skin on your thighs, you still want to improve your appearance? If so, Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Mouchantat can correct this excess skin problem.
By performing a thigh lift, Dr. Mouchantat can:
- Lift and tighten skin on the outer thigh
- Lift and tighten skin on the inner thigh
- Help those who have lost significant weight improve their appearance
What Is a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that lifts and repositions skin along the inner and outer thigh. During a thigh lift, excess skin is removed. Following a thigh lift procedure, the appearance of the thigh can be dramatically altered, and the results are long lasting.
A thigh lift targets excess skin and sometimes treats excess fat in the thighs at the same time. A thigh lift does not primarily address excess fat. If your concern is excess fat in your thighs, speak to Dr. Mouchantat about whether liposuction is right for you.
Thigh Lift Options
Thigh lifts can be performed to correct the appearance of the inner thigh, the outer thigh, or both. Thigh lift incisions can be in the groin, down the inner thigh, at the waist or along the outside of the hip.
Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Mouchantat will take care to place the incisions where they are not likely to be visible when wearing most types of clothing or swimsuits.
The Thigh Lift Procedure
During the procedure, the skin is lifted until it appears firm and tight, and then excess skin is removed. The incisions are then closed.
Thigh Lift Aftercare
After your thigh lift procedure, you will need to rest for several days. You will be unable to exercise strenuously for a time after your surgery. You will need to follow Dr. Mouchantat’s instructions about how to care for your incisions as they heal, and you will be scheduled for a follow-up visit to have your sutures removed.
