Thigh Lift Port Jefferson Station, NY
Thigh Lift is performed to tighten the skin of the thighs, with the goal being to produce slimmer, more contoured thighs that look proportionate to the rest of the body. Thigh lift may be performed alone, or in combination with other cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction. Candidates for Thigh lift are in good general health, but have excess skin and/or tissue on their thighs as a result of aging, pregnancy or significant weight loss.
The Thigh lift Procedure
The Thigh lift procedure involves incisions in the groin creases to remove excess fat and skin from the upper thighs. The extent of the incision depends on each individuals problem areas.
After surgery, a compression garment is worn to minimize swelling and promote healing.
Recovery from Thigh lift
Patients go home the same day. Most patients prefer to take off about a week.
Risks of Thigh lift
