If you are bothered by the saggy and loose appearance of your thighs, you may be interested in thigh lift surgery. This body contouring procedure can get rid of excess skin and fat and tighten the remaining thigh skin to give them a sleeker and slimmer appearance. At JL Plastic Surgery, we can provide men and women with excellent results from their thigh lift in Boston.
Medial thigh lift surgery involves tightening and improving the contour of the inner and upper thighs. In general, this is the first place that patients can develop excess skin and laxity. Oftentimes, patients are bothered when their inner thighs rub when walking. While some patients can benefit from liposuction alone, many other patients require skin removal with a medial thigh lift.
This procedure takes 2-4 hours under sedation anesthesia.
A medial thigh lift involves removing fat and skin from the inner area of the thighs. It requires a scar on the inner aspect of the thighs and extends down towards the knee. How far the scar needs to come down depends on how much excess skin needs to be removed. While this scar is on the inner part of the thighs, it can be visible in certain positions, so patients need to accept the scar before considering this procedure.
The most ideal candidates are those with a mild or moderate amount of fat on their thighs. Patients with excessive amounts of fat on their thighs typically benefit less from a medial thigh lift. Candidates should also be in good overall health and should have realistic expectations. During your consultation with Dr. Lee, he will perform an examination, go over your medical history, and ask about your reasons for wanting a thigh lift and what your goals are for the procedure to determine if a thigh lift in Boston is right for you.
Recovery from a medial thigh lift usually involves 1 week off from work or school. Pain is mild to moderate and most patients stop taking their prescription pain medications after a few days. There will be some bruising and swelling around the thigh following your thigh lift, but these issues will subside over the coming days. Dr. Lee will ask that you wear a compressive garment for 4 weeks.
