"Everyone went above and beyond with the care and support they gave me before, during, and after my surgery. The results and recovery have far exceeded my expectations, thanks mostly to the expertise and level of care I received. "
What is a Thigh Lift?
Sometimes, despite diet and exercise, your thighs can remain a stubborn trouble spot. Weight changes, genetics, and aging can each affect skin elasticity, causing skin laxity on the thighs.
Thigh lift surgery can help sculpt and reshape the thighs, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Your surgeon will remove excess skin and fat while taking care to minimize scarring. The result is smoother, firmer thighs, and a naturally beautiful body contour. Let us help you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside!
What are the Benefits?
After a thigh lift at Polyclinic Plastic Surgery in Seattle, you will likely experience:
- More toned and youthful appearing thighs
- Improved body image
- A boost in self-confidence
- Beautiful, natural results
Who is the Ideal Candidate?
Patients with loose skin on the thighs unable to achieve their body goals without surgery will likely be ideal candidates for a thigh lift. Candidates should be physically healthy, of stable weight, and nonsmokers. Patients should also not suffer from any significant health issues that could affect their surgery or recovery. A good candidate will also approach their surgery with realistic expectations and will be ready to commit to a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain results postoperatively.
What Can I Expect from Recovery?
After your thigh lift surgery, you may wear compression garments for a few weeks to avoid fluid retention and excess swelling. Some bruising and swelling are to be expected, and any discomfort in the days after surgery will be treated with pain medication.
Patients are encouraged to walk soon after surgery but will need to avoid strenuous activity for up to six weeks. Your surgeon will closely monitor your healing with postoperative care appointments. Scars will take some time to fade but are often well hidden once healing is complete.
