When it comes to problem areas on our bodies, thighs are often at the top of the list. A lot of times it’s where women carry their weight, and even if you lose pounds, saggy skin is left behind. Sometimes exercise and diet just aren’t enough, and we end up trying to cover up the problem, since we can’t make it go away. Thighs are hard to hide, though. Whether you’ve got on jeans, a skirt, shorts, exercise wear—or (heaven forbid!) a bathing suit—they pretty much say, “Hey everybody, look at me!” No matter what they look like, thighs get looked at—it’s unavoidable! So if you feel you have curves in all the wrong places, if tone has packed up and left town, or weight loss has taken your fat but left the skin, come get your gorgeous gams back with a thigh lift contouring procedure from Dr. Lisa J. Learn.
Here’s The Skinny…
Whether you’ve lost a lot of weight or time has taken its toll (along with all of your skin’s elasticity), a thigh lift can get rid of loose and saggy skin and return the toned-looking contours of your younger days.
Performed under anesthesia, the procedure removes excess skin from your inner, outer, upper, lower, mid-thigh, or all the above. Incisions are placed as close as possible to the area being treated and hidden in the natural folds of your skin where your clothes can keep them out of sight—no matter what you’re wearing! Your excess skin is removed and remaining tissues tightened. Often, the procedure is combined with liposuction as well to get rid of any extra fat while you’re at it. Then, voila—you have your youthful legs back, reshaped, smooth and proportioned.
From Thick to Thin
It’s normal to have some bruising, swelling, and even a little numbness after the surgery. Typically this disappears anywhere from several weeks to several months. You may have bandages and will possibly have to wear a compression garment to minimize swelling and provide added support to your new contours during the healing process. Draining tubes may be a possibility as well, but not to worry—we will provide detailed care instructions. Take it easy and enjoy a little R & R. In most cases, you can return to low-level activities in about two to three weeks, and your normal active routine in approximately four to six weeks. Full recovery can take up to one year. Then you can shop care-free for skinny jeans, spandex, shorty shorts, mini-skirts— and of course bathing suits—all you want!
