A thigh lift, also known as thighplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed to tighten and improve the appearance of the thighs. It targets excess skin that may be the result of pregnancy, aging, or significant weight loss. Dr. J. Anthony Stephens performs thigh lift surgery for residents of Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas. The procedure can be combined with liposuction procedures to give your thighs a more toned and smoother appearance.
Types of Thigh Lifts
There are different types of thigh lift procedures available. For example, we may only need to target the skin in the lower regions of the inner thighs. Other procedures target the skin on the front and outer regions of the thighs. It all depends on the unique situation.
Thigh lift cosmetic surgery is generally performed as an outpatient procedure. The technique used varies depending on the area under treatment and other factors. Most often, the procedure aims to remove excess skin and fat. The underlying tissue can also be tightened and reshaped while the remaining skin is smoothed and lifted.
Since the procedure involves surgery, you can expect a recovery period. Our surgeon will advise you to wear compression garments to promote healing. Additionally, you’ll want to follow all aftercare instructions. Once you have fully recovered, you could enjoy your results for years to come, especially if you maintain a healthy lifestyle. With that being said, gravity and aging will continue to happen, and the longevity of the results depends on various factors.
