What is a Thigh Lift? When patients wish to tighten excess skin that has begun to sag from age or from massive weight loss in the outer and/or inner thigh region, a thigh lift (thighplasty) is often the most appropriate solution. A Thigh Lift is an Inpatient procedure that requires IV sedation, typically yielding permanent results. Am I a good candidate for a Thighplasty? Dr. Lorenc considers ideal candidates for this procedure to be patients who have undergone dramatic weight loss either through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery and who feel they have achieved their optimum weight loss goals. A Thigh Lift may be right for you if you have excess, sagging skin resulting from aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss. Can a Thigh Lift be performed with other procedures? In addition, thigh lift surgery is often complimented with contouring of the hip and inner and outer thigh regions through the use of laser liposuction. What can I expect during the procedure? Small incisions are made at the hip or behind the knee & extra skin and/or fat is removed while Cellulite is smoothed out. What is the recovery process? Absorbable sutures will dissolve in one to two weeks. Swelling will subside in four to six weeks. Strenuous activity and any lifting should be avoided until cleared by Dr. Lorenc.
