How is the Thigh Lift Surgery Performed?
During the surgical procedures, anaesthesia choices may include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Incision patterns may vary depending on the area to be treated, extent of correction and patient and surgeon preference.
Commonly for a thigh lift, incisions are placed in the groin, extending downward around the back of the thigh. The underlying tissue will be reshaped and tightened, and skin will be reattached resulting in more proportionate and refined body contours. However, incisions may be larger. Deeply supported stitches within underlying tissues help to create the newly shaped curves.
What are the Pre and Post-Operative Care Steps?
Avoiding taking certain drugs and supplements that could interfere with your surgery or healing process.
Thoroughly clean your thighs to make sure your skin stays sterile and healthy before your procedure.
Continue to exercise and eat a healthy diet.
Have all tests or lab work done that your plastic surgeon prescribes.
Buy all painkillers, antibiotics and any other drugs you may need as it will be more challenging to get your medications after surgery.
Take at least two weeks off from work.
Ask your family member to take care of you for a few days after your surgery.
It may take up to one year for your scars to completely heal so you can see full results.
What are the Risks involved?
All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are unusual like:
- Prolonged, excessive bleeding
- Continued sagging.
- Loss of sensation.
- Unsatisfactory outcomes
