What is a thigh lift?
Plastic surgery of the thighs is used when the candidate demonstrates an unpleasant excess of skin. The objective of this procedure is to recreate the thighs and buttocks to be stronger, more attractive and improve contours, while reducing the irregularities on the surface of the skin.
Who is a candidate?
Dr.Teanoosh Zadeh recommends plastic surgery of the thighs to anyone in good physical and mental health, in response to pregnancy, significant weight loss or loss of elasticity due to aging, who is bothered with the excess loose skin. This procedure can be considered if the skin of the legs dangle and the skin has an orange peel texture. During the consultation with Dr.Zadeh, he will evaluate and determine if you are a potential candidate.
To meet the personal desires of each patient, several variations are possible in regards to the incisions. To perform an inner thigh lift, it requires short incisions from the fold of the interior thigh/groin around the buttocks. If desired, Dr.Zadeh can perform lateral or anterior lifts as separate procedures. The excess skin and fat is removed, the remaining tissue is tightened and lifted. Dr.Zadeh can recommend getting liposuction to achieve a better overall esthetic result.
- Poor scarring
- Delayed healing
Dr. Zadeh performs this surgery under general anesthesia for patient safety.
Post operative and healing
Following surgery, compression garments are prescribed to you by Dr.Zadeh and are to be worn to reduce swelling and to help the natural tightening and firming of the skin. Pain can easily be controlled with prescribed painkillers. Returning to work can be done between two to four weeks post operative. In some cases, Dr. Zadeh can advise IPL treatments to minimize the overall look of the scars.
