Anyone with excess folds of skin or sagging skin in their thighs can benefit from thigh lift surgery (thighplasty). The drooping skin can often be the result of significant weight loss. In such cases, many patients are already motivated to make an improvement to their health, but become distressed by the less than desirable appearance of their thighs. Many want a more youthful appearance and are looking to turn back the hands of time.
As a general rule of thumb, thigh lift procedures will be considered in patients who have loose skin that can be pinched with the fingers. A thigh lift procedure, meticulously performed by Dr. Jugenburg, can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your legs by giving you tighter, sexier thighs. This can also give a real boost to your self-esteem. If you are in good mental and physical health, you may be a good candidate for thighplasty.
Thigh lift surgery is a body contouring procedure designed to reshape your thighs. An inner thigh lift targets the area of your thighs between the legs. It decreases the circumference of the thigh by removing the excess skin and fat of the inner-thigh. This improves the leg contour, by thinning and shaping the thigh to create a more naturally toned appearance.
An outer thigh lift, or lateral thigh lift, focuses on the outer sides of your thighs. It is often combined with a buttock lift to “pull up” and eliminate sagging skin in the outer thighs. During your initial consultation, Dr. Jugenburg will identify which cosmetic procedure will produce the greatest improvement to the contour of your legs.
Depending on the extent of your surgery, your recovery period after a thigh lift will vary. Some patients are able to return home after a few hours in our clinic; others are required to stay in a hospital for a few days. Do not let this worry you. Bruising and swelling after surgery are mild to moderate. You will experience some discomfort, but this is to be expected after any surgical procedure – the healing process is a gradual one. Most women consider this recovery period a minor trade-off compared to the wonderful transformation they experience after thigh lift surgery.
The results of a thigh lift are tremendous! You will have a tightened, lifted and improved contour to your thighs. And your confidence will soar once you slip into some comfortable sportswear, swimsuits and jeans. Many of our patients contact us after surgery to thank us because they are ecstatic with their new thighs!
Dr. Jugenburg will identify any risks associated with your thigh lift surgery during your initial consultation. Postoperative complications are uncommon with thighplasty surgeries performed at Plastica Clinic. However, every procedure does have potential risks. Adhering to Dr. Jugenburg’s instructions and limiting certain activities after surgery, can significantly minimize these risks and accelerate the healing process. Dr. Jugenburg and his medical staff will take every necessary precaution to minimize any risk, diligently protecting patient health and safety. However, should there be unfavourable results, our professional cosmetic surgery team have the medical expertise, knowledge, and technology to correct it.
