It’s very common for excess fat and skin to accumulate in the inner and outer thighs. Even individuals who are in relatively good physical shape can suffer from loose, inelastic skin in the thighs, which can ultimately cause feelings of self-consciousness – particularly when wearing certain types of clothing. Fortunately, Dr. Thomas Lintner, our experienced plastic surgeon, offers advanced thigh lift procedures here at Advanced Aesthetic Surgery. A thigh lift can help you attain a smoother, recontoured appearance to the thighs with beautiful, natural-looking results.
The Thigh Lift Procedure
A thigh lift can often be performed on an outpatient basis, and usually takes only about three hours, depending on the extent of treatment necessary to meet your goals. Dr. Lintner will create an incision just under the bikini line and down to the knee, depending on the amount of skin that is desired to be removed. Dr. Lintner will then tighten the remaining skin, pulling it taut so that it looks much firmer and smoother.
While the recovery process from thigh lift surgery varies depending on each patient’s needs, many individuals are able to resume normal activities within one week after treatment. Some patients may require more time to properly rest and heal. Dr. Lintner will talk with you about all aspects of thigh lift surgery during your initial consultation. Once he has evaluated your needs and goals and answered your questions, he will be able to give you more detailed information on what you can expect from the procedure and the recovery period.
