A thigh lift can give you thighs that look firmer, younger, strong, and incredibly sexy. Not only can a thigh lift or reduction give your confidence a boost but, your partner may also find you tenfold more attractive, meaning that your love will grow. Let’s discuss the amazing procedure to tell you all that you need to know about it!
Why Should I Get a Thigh Lift Done?
Thighs are hard to shape and maintain, no matter how hard you exercise or how much weight you manage to lose. Thigh lift, performed by an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. John Timothy Katzen can remove extra saggy skin and tighten the thigh area, making this body part shapely and proportionate. This means that you will look more fit and healthy, and can enjoy wearing whatever you like!
What Should I Expect During The Thigh Lift Procedure
During this procedure, Dr. Katzen removes excess fat and unwanted skin from your thighs. In case you have skin that has poor elasticity, Dr. Katzen performs a combination of thigh liposuction and removal of thigh skin. The thigh lift will leave a scar, but the trade off will be tighter, more slender thighs. With the correct scar treatment, these thigh scars will fade.
How is Thigh Lift Surgery Performed?
Also known as thighplasty, thigh lift surgery is a popular body contouring surgery. It is a great way to add contour and tightness to ill-defined or saggy thighs. Depending on your specific needs, it can be performed in several ways, all of which are offered by any experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Katzen.
What this means is that your Dr. Katzen will analyze your thigh structure and decide how to perform the thigh lift to get you the results that you desire. Dr. Katzen can make different incisions to reduce the sagging or drooping on your inner thigh, upper thigh or lower thigh. Liposuction may also be utilized to make the sculpting of your thigh area finer. During the presurgery consultation, you and Dr. Katzen will discuss your expectations and wishes of your thigh reduction.
Benefits of Thigh Lift Surgery
There are several benefits of thigh lift surgery.
First, you can get a significant reduction in excess thigh skin and fat.
Second, when there are problems with skin laxity, plastic surgery is the only real answer because nothing else really works. Not only do you get highly-contoured thighs, but also tightened muscles and reduced stretch marks. Third, and possibly most importantly, you get beautiful, sexy legs that you can flaunt on your next trip to the beach or your next vacation with your partner. Imagine the confidence and self-esteem boost that you could get! Don’t be surprised if people come to ask how you have got the perfect legs!
Is the Recovery a Difficult Process?
Not really. You may feel some pain, discomfort, swelling or bruising after the surgery, but all of that can be easily controlled by the medication that Dr. Katzen can prescribe.
Also, to make the recovery faster, you have to ensure that you rest and follow your Dr. Katzen’s instructions very carefully. Don’t skip attending your appointments with Dr. Katzen because they are important for him to check your recovery. Maintain a healthy diet and avoid exercising and lifting heavy objects for around 6 weeks post-op.
You can return to your normal activities about 2-3 weeks after your thigh lift surgery. Please note that you should avoid sun exposures for long durations as this will negatively affect your scars.
Also, depending on which procedure you have chosen, some recoveries are better in winter while others are in summer. For your specific case, a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Katzen can guide you. It is good to select a time of the year when it may be easier for you to relax, such as the holidays. The recovery specifications vary according to the patient and the procedure, so it is best that you seek Dr. Katzen’s help in this matter.
