Reshape and Slim Down the Thigh
A thigh lift, otherwise known as thighplasty, is a cosmetic procedure introduced to reshape and slim down the inner or outer thighs of a woman or man. This procedure is best for treating loose skin and fat that resides in the inner or outer thighs. If you’re not satisfied by the look of your thighs or if you feel that they stand between you and your optimal body shape, contact Belmont Plastic Surgery today and discover how you can get one of the best thigh lifts Washington DC has to offer.
“I literally hid my thighs through my entire 20s and didn't wear a bathing suit in public for over a decade. I can't express how much Dr. Feledy and Belmont helped me with the the thigh lift I received. I finally wore a bathing suit again and feel like a new chapter of my life has arrived.”
Thigh lift surgery is a two to three hour outpatient procedure. General anesthetic is typically required. Belmont’s renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Feledy will mark the areas of the thighs that are planned for reshaping. He will then make discreet incision lines along the natural creases and contours of the lower body. Sagging loose skin is removed from the thighs while fat is removed with liposuction.
The best candidates for thigh lift surgery will possess excess soft tissue along the inner and/or outer thighs. If you’re considering thigh lift surgery, plastic surgeons recommend non-smokers who exercise regularly, maintain a stable weight, and are well informed about the thigh lift procedure and its outcomes.
Recovery time varies but Washington DC thigh lift patients should plan for four to six weeks of limited activity. Walking is usually not advised the day after surgery. Tape and a compression garments will be worn for approximately three weeks.
Thigh Lift Alternatives
In some cases, liposuction surgery is performed on the inner and outer thighs may be enough to achieve optimal results. Liposuction candidates are usually younger patients with good skin elasticity who struggle mostly with persistent fat deposits rather than excess skin.
Thigh Lift Procedure
Liposuction is frequently performed in conjunction with a thigh lift. If you’ve undergone significant weight loss, Dr. Feledy may recommend other body contouring procedures such as a lower body lift, tummy tuck or brazilian butt lift. You can discuss these options with Dr. Feledy during your appointment.
Discuss the Risks With Your Doctor
As with all surgical procedures, a thigh lift presents a degree of risk and uncertainty. Possible complications of thigh lift surgery may include unfavorable scarring, bleeding (hematoma), infection, fluid accumulation, poor healing skin loss, blood clots, numbness or other changes in skin sensation, anesthesia risks and undesirable cosmetic outcome. Belmont Plastic Surgery prides itself on providing the safest thigh lift Washington DC has available and any risks and post-surgery treatment plans to minimize side effects will be discussed in-depth during your consultation with Dr. Feledy.
