Thigh Lift procedures help lift and tighten the skin of the inner thigh which tends to worsen with age and weight loss. Depending on the amount of skin and fat present, Dr. Lee may combine this procedure with liposuction for optimal results.
Incisions will be designed according to the amount of tissue present. Mild and moderate amounts of skin may only require an incision well hidden within the lower groin crease. Significant skin laxity extending to the knee may require an incision placed along the inside of the thigh.
Anesthesia is general and patients can go home the same day.
Recovery is variable but most patients can expect routine activity by 2 weeks and full strenuous activity by 4 weeks. A binder or compression garment may be worn during this time to reduce swelling.
Results are immediate and continue to improve over several weeks as swelling decreases.
