As plastic surgeries go, a thigh lift is not among the most popular, but it can be especially beneficial if you have sagging skin in the inner and outer thighs. If you live in Miami, then there are several plastic surgeons that offer thigh lift surgery. By getting rid of flab and excess skin, a thigh lift will give your thigh a smoother, more contoured appearance.
Who needs a Thigh Lift? Sagging skin, and deposits of unwanted fat on the thighs, are often the result of age, but can also be due to genetics. It is these areas that a thigh lift is designed to help. In Miami thigh lift is recommended for individuals that are bothered by thighs rubbing together, as a result of excess tissue in the inner thighs. Individuals with thighs that are out of proportion are also good candidates. However, the procedure is not recommended for the very obese, as it will not remove excess fat deposits.
Thigh lift results: The aim of the thigh lift is to reshape and tighten the skin of the thigh. Very often a thigh lift is done in conjunction with other procedures such as abdominoplasty and liposuction.
Procedure: A thigh lift is also known as thighplasty, and involves a vertical lift of the thighs. The procedure is usually performed on the upper thigh, and involves the removal of excess skin, as well as tightening of the soft tissues in the thigh. General anesthesia is often used during a thigh lift, to ensure patient comfort. An incision is usually made at a discrete location such as in the groin area, extending to the back of the thigh.
After surgery, the incisions will be dressed, and if necessary, a compression garment will also be applied. What’s more, thin tubes may have to be put under the skin to drain any excess fluid that may collect. The results of the Miami thigh lift will be almost immediate, and the results are long lasting.
