What can you expect on Thigh Lift
Procedure & Recovery
The procedure for a thigh lift takes approximately 2 to 3 hours. After the procedure is completed, we will continue to monitor you and make sure you are comfortable before you go home for your recovery. In the initial days of your recovery, you may feel some discomfort, bruising and swelling. Most patients can walk comfortably within a few days. This is good for blood circulation and quicker healing. The average recovery time is 6-8 weeks (about 2 months). Aftercare instructions will be provided to assist in the healing of incisions so that they are less obvious. Even though you may experience some scarring, your confidence will increase, and your thighs will be proudly displayed.
All You Need to Know About Thighplasty (Thigh Lift)
A thighplasty or thigh lift procedure is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the thigh region.
This procedure is also known as a total thigh lift. In this surgery, fat and extra skin are removed from the front, back, inner, and outer thighs. The contour of the buttocks can also be improved.
The medial thigh lift is the most common thigh lift procedure. It addresses saggy skin in the inner thigh region.
Thighplasty is performed under general anesthesia. An incision is made in the groin area either horizontally or vertically. Excess tissue (fat and skin) is removed surgically, and liposuction is used to achieve a more toned appearance.
The cost of a thighplasty varies, but it is approximately $9000. The cost will also change if other cosmetic procedures are combined with the thigh lift.
A mini thigh lift is performed for clients who are most focused on the upper and inner part of the thigh. The cost of this procedure is approximately $6000.
The cost of an inner thigh lift is approximately $1000.
After a thigh lift, you will wear a compression garment. This special piece of clothing will help to decrease swelling and increase support in the area of the surgery to maintain the new body contour.
It is important not to place any strain on the surgical area while sleeping. Sleeping on your back with pillows under your knees and your head elevated will reduce the stress on your thighs.
Full recovery from a thigh lift usually takes 4-6 weeks.
Light walking is fine after the thighplasty whenever it feels comfortable. However, strenuous activity is not recommended, including stretching the legs, lifting or straining. After 2-3 weeks, more activity can be introduced, and normal activities can resume after 4-6 weeks.
Thighplasty is worthwhile if the surgery will help an individual feel confident and more secure. It is a personal decision to undergo cosmetic surgery and only the person making the choice will know if it is worthwhile.
The results of thigh lifts can last from 5-10 years. The longevity of the results are also affected by the lifestyle choices a person makes such as diet, exercise and appropriately caring for the skin.
