Manhattan, New York (PressExposure) December 19, 2009 -- Achieve Shapely Thighs
The thigh lift, a form of cosmetic surgery, gets rid of excess thigh skin and ensures enhanced contours not just for the thigh but also for the lower body. Having attractive, lean, firm and shapely thighs neednât be just a dream anymore. You no longer have to feel embarrassed about going to the beach in your bathing suit. The thigh lift (thighplasty) can give you more youthful, attractive looking thighs which you can be proud of.
Goodbye to Loose Skin
A thigh lift is the solution for you if you have the following problems:
- Dimpled, flabby or sagging thigh skin as a consequence of weight loss or aging.
- Sticking or rubbing together of the inner thighs when walking or during hot weather.
- Loss in elasticity of thigh or buttock skin.
- Saddle bags.
More about the Thigh Lift
Thigh lift surgery, carried out under general or âtwilightâ anesthesia, requires an incision to be made in the thigh area. The length of the incision would differ from patient to patient. Whatâs great about a thigh lift is that the making of the incision and surgery are so designed that the final scar would be concealed in the crease of the groin, as far as possible. By removing the extra fat and skin, and lifting and tightening the skin that remains, the thigh lift lends the thighs a more streamlined look. Thigh lifts are of two types: medial and lateral, targeting the inner thigh and outer thigh respectively.
Following a thigh lift procedure, a small degree of pain is not uncommon. However, the pain can easily be managed using oral medication. Stitches, if not deep, would usually be removed within ten weeks. The patient would typically be able to return to work two weeks after the surgery.
Whether done alone or along with liposuction, a thigh lift can produce great results.
