What a thigh lift can achieve
- Posted on: Aug 15 2022
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure that can improve the contour of your thighs by removing loose, excess skin. It may also be combined with procedures like liposuction to enhance results further. At the practice of Dr. Homayoun Sasson, patients in the Great Neck, NY areas can attain a beautiful body even after achieving their weight loss goals. At Sasson Plastic Surgery, we offer this and other body procedures for patient consideration.
Who is a proper candidate for this treatment?
The best candidates for this procedure are adult men and women who have recently lost significant weight and have loose, saggy skin on their thighs. Thigh lift surgery can help you achieve firmer, more youthful-looking thighs and feel more confident when wearing more revealing clothing.
Are the results of a thigh lift permanent or long-lasting?
If you are thinking about thigh lift surgery, it is crucial to understand that the results are not permanent. However, they can last for many years if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight. If you do gain weight after surgery, the final and lasting results of your surgery may be diminished.
What can I expect from the thigh lift procedure?
Thigh lift surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure. This means you have the chance to go home the same day as your surgery. However, it is often done under general anesthesia in a surgical room and is completed within a few hours.
What can I expect after my procedure?
Recovery from thigh lift surgery can take several weeks. You will likely experience some swelling and bruising on your thighs during this time. You also need to wear compression garments to help reduce swelling. In addition, many of our patients will request time off from work, school, and social activities to allow for proper healing and recovery.
