Have you been consistently dieting and exercising in order to improve your lower body, only to experience minimal results? At Tarola Plastic Surgery, we understand that some areas of the body do not respond as well as others to exercise alone, and our thigh lift procedure will get rid of the stubborn fat to help you on your way to achieving cosmetic success.
Contact us today at our Murfreesboro location to set up a consultation with Dr. Nicholas Tarola, a board-certified plastic surgeon who will discuss your cosmetic goals and determine if a thigh lift is the best option for you to build a better body.
What is a Thigh Lift?
By reducing excess skin and sometimes fat in the thighs and lower body, a thigh lift tightens the appearance of skin while also improving the shape and contours of treated areas. Incision patterns and areas differ based on the individual and the type of technique used, but once incisions are made, the underlying tissue is tightened and reshaped while excess skin is removed. The remaining skin will then be redraped and sutured, resulting in improved shape and texture.
Am I a Good Candidate for Thigh Lift Surgery?
During your consultation, Dr. Tarola will determine if thigh lift surgery is right for you and your cosmetic goals, but typically patients who fit into these criteria are deemed appropriate for this procedure:
- Those who have the right amount of excess skin or tissue along the inner and/or outer thigh
- Individuals who maintain a relatively stable body weight.
- Adults with no medical complications that may impair surgery or healing.
- Patients who have realistic expectations of cosmetic surgery and know what it will and will not do.
- Those who are willing to adopt a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain results.
What is Recovery Like?
Some bruising and soreness after surgery is common, and patients may wear a compression garment along with their bandages to support the new contours of their thighs and control swelling. You may also have small, thin tubes underneath your skin in order to prevent excess fluids and blood from building up.
Although results can be visible almost immediately after surgery, it may take some time for the reformed tissues to settle into their new forms. The skin in the treated areas should be improved in appearance as well as feeling. As long as body weight and fitness are maintained, the results of a thigh lift procedure are long-lasting.
Prior to surgery, you will be advised of all the risks and possible side effects. Doctor Tarola will also inform you of any aftercare you will have to perform on your incision sites in order to reduce the risks of infection and complications.
