Is a thigh lift right for me?
- Posted on: Jan 15 2020
Diet and exercise are best at helping patients reach a healthy weight. However, for patients who also want to combat specific areas of unwanted fat deposits, surgical intervention may still be required. This is especially true for certain body areas that are susceptible to stubborn fat deposits, including the thighs. Patients with excess skin and fat in this area may consider the advantages of undergoing a procedure known as the thigh lift.
What is a thigh lift?
Dr. Homayoun Sasson of Great Neck and Manhattan, NY describes the thigh lift as a surgical treatment for smoothing the thigh area with fat removal and skin removal, if needed. These treatments result in better body contours and shape, and improves the look of the thigh area.
Who is a good candidate for a thigh lift?
The best candidates for the thigh lift procedure are patients who are within their ideal weight range and have excess tissues, fat, or skin in the inner or outer thigh region. Patients considering this treatment should already be living a healthy, active lifestyle with a proper diet. Patients should also not have medical conditions that may impact their ability to properly heal from the procedure. During a consultation appointment, patients should also disclose any medical conditions or health concerns, including current medications being taken.
Does a thigh lift include liposuction?
In some specific cases, patients may undergo liposuction along with their thigh lift for best results. Liposuction will remove excess fat in the area and is done before removing excess skin and tightening the area. Patients considering thigh lift may also want the doctor to focus on other areas of the lower body including the buttocks and abdominal area. By performing treatment on several areas at once, patients can reduce the amount of time away from work and other activities when compared to having the procedures done at separate times.
