Thanks to surgical procedures such as the thigh lift, patients in the Great Neck NY, area have options available to them to tighten and tone this area. Dr. Homayoun Sasson of Sasson Plastic Surgery may recommend to you the benefits of a thigh lift.

What is a thigh lift?

Dr. Homayoun Sasson describes the thigh lift, also referred to as a thighplasty, as a procedure that removes excess natural skin and fat from the upper legs to create a smoother, more toned appearance. This surgery is often sought out by those who have experienced significant weight loss or have naturally sagging skin in the thigh area.

What happens during a thigh lift surgery?

During the procedure, incisions are made on the inner or outer thighs depending on the specific needs of the patient. Then, excess skin and fat is removed before the remaining tissue is tightened and reshaped for a slimmer appearance.

What can I expect after the thigh lift procedure?

Recovery time for this surgery can vary but typically lasts about two weeks, with some swelling and bruising expected during that time. Results can last for several years with proper diet and exercise maintenance. However, it’s important to note that if you gain extra weight after treatment, then lose it again, this can result in more loose skin that may need to be removed a second time. Maintaining the results requires you to be serious about maintaining proper weight and health.
