Thigh Contouring Orange County
Thigh contouring, also known as a thigh lift, is a body contouring procedure that can be used to eliminate loose excess thigh skin to give the thigh s sleeker and tighter appearance. At Smart Dimensions Weight Loss, we offer thigh contouring surgery for patients in Orange County.
Thigh Lift Candidates
A thigh lift is commonly performed on patients who have undergone significant weight loss that has left a large amount of loose excess skin around the thighs. The thigh skin can also become loose and saggy as a result of aging. Some women may benefit from a thigh lift following pregnancy.
During your consultation, our expert surgeons can perform a thorough examination of your thighs to determine if you are a good candidate for a thigh lift. They will also perform a physical exam to determine if you are healthy enough for surgery.
How a Thigh Lift is Performed
A thigh lift is typically performed under general anesthesia. You should be able to return home the same day as your thigh contouring procedure though you will need to have someone drive you home.
The incision location for your thigh lift will be based on whether an inner thigh lift or outer thigh lift is being performed. An inner thigh lift involves making an incision along the groin moving downward behind the thigh. For an outer thigh lift may involve making an incision from the groin and along the hip to the back. Excess skin and fat will be removed from the area. Liposuction may be used to assist with the removal of excess fat. The incisions are then sutured closed and bandaged.
Recovering from Your Thigh Lift
The incisions will be sutured shut and bandaged following your thigh lift. Some swelling, bruising, and soreness around the thighs are to be expected. Any pain or discomfort you may experience during your thigh lift recovery can be managed with medication. Compression garments may need to be worn during the recovery process to provide support and minimize swelling.
In general, patients should be able to return to work and resume most of their normal activities after 10 days or so. Running, exercise and other physically demanding activities will need to be avoided for several weeks or so. Post-operative instructions will also be provided.
