Many of the lift procedures that are available today have been able to dramatically transform the bodies of patients struggling with loose skin and stubborn fat. Most lift procedures are designed to get rid of excess skin on the body. A patient may have this excess skin because they have lost a great deal of weight or because the aging process has taken a toll on their body. If you have been dealing with excess skin and fat in your thighs, a thigh lift with our skilled surgeon in Baton Rouge may be the right option for you.
To begin, if you have a lot of extra skin on your thighs because you have lost a lot of weight and your skin did not bounce back as you hoped it would, you want to make sure that you have reached your weight loss goal before undergoing a thigh lift. This is an important factor because the procedure can leave you with permanent results if you maintain a stable weight and healthy diet and exercise routine.
The last thing you want is to consider the surgery or deal with excess skin again in the future if you cannot maintain your weight. Because of this, you really want to be at a point where you feel comfortable with your weight loss and have been able to maintain it for a reasonable amount of time. It is usually at this point that a thigh lift may be appropriate for you.
Most people end up having to deal with sagging skin as they get older. We also often end up losing fat in different parts of our body. While we usually consider losing fat to be a good thing, it can actually have a negative effect on the contours of our body if we lose it in key areas. This is what can happen with our thighs as we age. If you are seeing some of these issues and feel unsatisfied with the way hanging skin on your thighs looks, contact us. Now may be a good time for you to learn more about this procedure.
In order for you to make the most of your procedure, you should be in generally good health. This not only ensures you get optimal results, but it also helps make the recovery process as quick and comfortable as possible.
