Thigh Lift 101 – Results, Costs, and Recovery
Do you ever wish you could get rid of your excess thigh fat, but you do not know how? As summer is approaching, do you find yourself wishing you did not have to reveal your thighs because you are embarrassed of what people will see? You might be a good candidate for a thigh lift. Thigh lift is an excellent way to achieve firmer and more attractive upper legs. This procedure is especially helpful for those who struggle with loose, excess skin as a result of weight loss. A thigh lift, or thighplasty, involves the removal excess skin, fat, and tissue to tone and refine the upper legs.
A thigh lift is a surgery that reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother skin and better proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.
If fitness and other weight control efforts have failed you, a surgical lift may be right for you.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost for a thigh lift is $4,836. Of course, this varies from patient to patient, based on your individual needs.
Following your procedure, dressings/bandages will be applied to your incisions. The first two weeks are critical after thigh reduction surgery. During this time, it is important that swelling be kept to a minimum and incisions are allowed to fully heal. It is critical to be very careful and cautious during this time, moving slowly and intentionally to avoid pulling on incisions. Open wounds in the thigh area are difficult to heal because of the tension of gravity pulling down on the full weight of the legs and because of the movement when walking, sitting, bending, and even just getting in and out of bed. Dr. Kotis and his team will give you specific and thourough instructions for a speedy recovery.
