Body contouring Thigh Lift is a type of cosmetic surgery to help improve the look of the thigh area in patients whose thighs are saggy or have a dimpled appearance.
Prof Wilson will remove fat and excess loose skin from your thigh area. Subsequently, he will tighten the whole thigh area. This is done to create a thigh profile that is smoother & firmer. This reduces the excess skin and fat that is left behind from the expansion of skin, loss of fat and lack of tissue elasticity that often occurs after a major weight loss. This sagging skin commonly develops around the thighs and legs making your body appear irregular and misshapen.
Liposuction is sometimes added to aid an improved overall result.
If you have undergone dramatic weight loss either through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, and you are at your optimum weight loss goal, you may choose to have this procedure.
Your visit with Dr. Wilson will determine if you are a good candidate. In general, guidelines for body contouring after massive weight loss include adults whose weight loss has stabilized. Furthermore, healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that could impair healing. Moreover, individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals for what body contouring can accomplish. Last but not least, individuals committed to leading a healthy lifestyle including proper nutrition and fitness.
During your consultation, you will learn about the Thigh Lift, its limitations and risks, and discuss your needs and concerns. First, Dr. Wilson will examine your body and will consider such factors as the quality of your skin tone and the contour of your body. Subsequently, he will explain which surgical techniques are most appropriate for you. You may also schedule an additional consultation to view computer imaging so that you can visualize the results of the surgical technique specifically designed for you.
You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your medical history. This will include information about any medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments you have received including previous surgeries and medications that you currently take. It is important for you to provide complete information.
There are many types of lifts that can be performed. Elements that will influence the decision include your body habitus, amount of redundant skin and adipose tissue that you have in your thigh and knee region.
1-The medial thigh lift will lift and tighten the sagging skin of the inner thigh.
2-The vertical thigh lift will tighten the skin along the whole length of the thigh. Dr Wilson places the incisions along the inner aspect of the thigh in the most hidden area.
3- Combined Liposuction and Lifting: used as an adjunct to either technique of thigh lift.
The Surgical Nurse will apply compression bandages at the end of the surgery, which you will wear for 3-4 weeks.
Sometimes Prof Wilson will insert small plastic tubes under the skin to aid fluid drainage and reduce the amount of swelling. The surgical assistant usually removes them after 1-2 days.
You will not be able to drive or operate heavy machinery for some time after your surgery. You should also avoid movements that put stress on your legs while you are recovering. When you are sleeping, you should place pillows under your lower legs to relieve the amount of pressure on the wound sites and to promote drainage.
Professor Wilson believes that affordable cost plastic surgery is the right of every individual. He will never allow financial restraints to prevent you from having slim sexy tight thighs. However, many factors affect the cost of lift, including the extent of surgery, amount of fat, type of skin, and other factors. After the consultation, the patient coordinator will offer you an affordable price quote.
