When you lose weight, you are proud of yourself. You want to show your new body off and enjoy the hard work you did. However, when you lose weight, your body does not always look how you thought it would. Instead of having fat, you have loose skin, and you might not be happy with how you look. There may be certain areas of your body that you cannot change no matter how hard you try, like your legs. If you simply want your legs to match the way you feel, consider a thigh lift at Soma Plastic Surgery in Lake Mary.
A thigh lift is a medical procedure that is meant to tighten the thigh skin and reduce the sagging that can occur in the inner and outer thigh region. The procedure is common for people who have lost a lot of weight or aged to a point where the skin sags without a recourse for getting it back on track. Outer thigh lifts are often done as part of body lift procedures while inner thigh lifts are often done as a standalone procedure.
Thigh lifts address many issues within patients. They can help with poor skin elasticity around the thigh area and help reduce excess skin on the thighs after weight loss. They can even get rid of sagging and hanging skin in the outer or inner thighs. If you are considering a thigh lift, you can expect the elimination of extra skin and the tightening of the area to help the overall body contour.
Thigh lifts are not always ideal for every patient. If you have a lot of fatty tissue in the area, you may need to have liposuction first to help the region before a thigh lift is the next recourse. If you decide to move forward with the procedure, you will have a list of instructions from your doctor that you will need to follow before you go in for the surgery. Recovery takes three weeks, with the first week consisting of bed rest. You can resume all regular activities after six weeks of recovery are complete.
If you are interested in tightening the skin in your thigh region, and you want to look into the thigh lift options, consult with our medical team and make an appointment to discuss the possibility. You can ask questions about what a thigh lift can do for you so you understand what your results would be like. You can talk about procedure options and other elements you will want to know about before committing to the surgery such as prep before the operation.
