A Thigh Lift Trims Away Excess Skin for Slimmer Thighs Philadelphia

When it comes to sporting those sexy minis, well-contoured legs are an absolute must. But often, despite vigorous exercise and diet plans, fat in the thigh regions refuses to budge. The skin also sags over time, adding years to your appearance. Thighplasty is a way to get rid of unnecessary skin excess fat, sculpting your legs for a more attractive appearance.

Thigh Lifts Give You Slimmer Thighs

Sometimes diet plans and exercise regimens just don’t work when it comes to losing fat in your lower body. Even if you have managed to reduce body fat in other areas, heavier thighs can cause an imbalance in your body proportions.

If you have recently undergone a weight-loss program and ended up with loose sagging skin and pockets of excess fat, then this surgery could be just what you’ve been looking for. If you’re interested in this surgery, you must first ensure that your body weight has been mostly consistent.

If you are a smoker, it is necessary to quit for several months before the surgery. Because surgery isn’t a replacement for fitness and proper diet, you need to make sure that you create and maintain healthy habits before and after surgery.

Before the procedure, a consultation with Dr. Hoffman will be necessary. He will take into consideration your medical history and your desired outcome, and he will use this information to customize the surgical procedure to accommodate your goals and needs.

What Are the Different Kinds of Thigh Lifts?

Thigh-lift surgery is carried out under general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, precise incisions are made based on the degree of correction desired. There are two kinds of thigh lifts available, and these are defined by the incision locations.

• In the outer thigh lift, incisions extend from the groin to the hip region.
• In the medial thigh lift, incisions extend from the groin to the buttocks.

Although the incisions may be extensive, they are strategically made so that they can be hidden by swimwear.

After the incisions are made, excess skin is removed, as is excess fat. Internal sutures are used to help preserve the new contours of the thighs. The incisions are then closed with stitches.

What Can I Expect After the Procedure?

You will have to relax for a couple of weeks after the surgery in order to recover completely. You can resume physically taxing activities after about four to six weeks.

You will notice that your skin feels smoother and firmer after the thigh-lift procedure almost immediately. The improved appearance of the thighs is visible soon after surgery, but it may not be fully evident immediately due to the temporary swelling. Once the swelling reduces, you can enjoy the procedure’s full results.

Your newly toned thighs offer a fit and trim appearance. When complemented by a healthy lifestyle and diet, you can retain your attractive legs for years.
