Thigh Lift Procedures
Many people develop loose, sagging skin or stubborn fat on their thighs due to significant weight loss, pregnancy, or aging. Though exercising will strengthen your thigh muscles and enhance their definition, sagging skin and fat does not always respond to exercise and diets. If you want to reduce loose skin and stubborn fat to reveal slimmer, firmer, and more toned thighs, body sculpting surgery may be your best option.
At Kreitzberg Plastic Surgery, we offer a thigh lift and liposuction contouring in Tulsa. If you are curious about these procedures, Dr. Kreitzberg could provide more information and answer any questions you may have.
Inner Thigh Lift
Inner thigh lift surgery in Tulsa tightens and contours thighs. More specifically, the incision placement for inner thigh lift could focus on the upper areas near the groin or extend from this area down to the knee.
Outer Thigh Lift
The procedure contours the outer thighs through an incision above the hip, on top of the outer thighs, or starting in the groin and extending towards the buttocks.
Types Of Thigh Lift Surgeries And Liposuction Contouring
There are two types of thigh lift surgeries, each targeting different areas of your thighs. Both procedures utilize general anesthesia, as the surgeries are invasive. Additionally, it may be necessary to combine your thigh lift surgery with liposuction to improve contouring and shaping of the thighs.
Inner Thigh Lift
An inner thigh lift removes excess skin with incisions extending from your groin to your knee on the inside of your thigh or along the groin crease. From here, Dr. Kreitzberg can perform liposuction to assist with additional skin removal and shaping of the thigh. Then, he trims excess skin, lifts, and tightens the thigh. Afterward, you will notice a firmer, more toned appearance.
Outer Thigh Lift
An outer thigh lift uses a similar surgical procedure, but incisions are made along your outer thigh, going from your groin, around your hip, and across your back. The last step in each process is to close incisions and secure newly repositioned skin with sutures.
Thigh Liposuction Contouring
Thigh liposuction removes stubborn fat to improve the shape, definition, and appearance of the inner thighs, lateral thigh, hips, and buttock. Small incisions are made near the groin and on the thighs. Then, utilizing a small instrument call a cannula the unwanted fat can be permanently removed.
Recovering After A Thigh Lift And Liposuction Procedures
Immediately after thigh lift surgery, you will have bandages and occasionally drainage tubes around incisions to reduce swelling and fluid buildup. You may notice moderate to severe bruising, redness, and discomfort on your thighs for several days. Following thigh liposuction, a supportive garment will be used for 4-6 weeks. No drains will be needed after thigh liposuction. Post liposuction massage will begin a week after surgery. You will notice moderate swelling, bruising, redness, and discomfort on the thighs that will improve over a couple weeks.
Typically, patients need a few weeks of recovery before returning to light-impact activities, including work for a thigh lift. Return to work can be quicker with liposuction alone. After at least six weeks of recovery, most patients can resume strenuous activities, such as exercising and heavy lifting. During this recovery time, it is best to keep your legs elevated as much as possible to reduce residual swelling.
Thigh lift enhancements are apparent right after surgery, but final results may take several months to form. This is also true with thigh liposuction. Directly after lift surgery, your skin appears smoother, firmer, and tighter. If your procedure included liposuction, your thighs may look slimmer. However, the skin may take several weeks to months to settle around newly enhanced thigh muscle.
