THE PROCEDURE

STEP 1- Anesthesia
Medications are administered to your comfort during the surgical procedures. The options include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best option for you.

STEP 2- incision
Incision pattern vary based on the area or areas to be treated, degree of correction and patient and surgeon preference. One common technique used for a thigh lift places incision in the groin, extending downwards and wrapping around the back of the thigh. The underlying tissue matrix will be reshaped and tightened and skin will be reduced and re-draped resulting in more proportionate and smoother body contours. You may qualify for a minimal incision medial thigh lift that involves only an incision in the groin area. Your surgeon will determine what’s appropriate. Improving contour of the outer thigh may require an incision extending from the groin around the hip. advanced techniques usually allow incisions to be placed in strategic locations where they can be hidden by most types of clothings and swimsuit, however incisions may be extensive.

STEP 3- Closing the Incision
Deep support sutures within underlying tissues help to form the newly shaped contours. Sutures close the skin incisions.

STEP 4- see the results
The smoother tighter contouring that results from a thigh lift are apparent almost immediately, although initially obscured by swelling and bruising. You may be required to wear a compression garment for several weeks following your procedure, to minimize swelling and support the tissue as they heal. Following a thigh lift, skin quality is dramatically improved both in appearance and feel
