What is a Body and Thigh Lift?
Body and thigh lifts are surgical body sculpting techniques that eliminate fat and skin to produce a firmer, contoured appearance throughout the body. These treatments can be combined or isolated to achieve a variety of results. Body and thigh lift techniques are often used to address signs of aging, such as loose skin or stubborn fat. As a result, patients can achieve a more youthful appearance. These techniques can also be used for patients who have accomplished significant weight loss and are left with stubborn pockets of fat or excess skin. Whatever your cosmetic goals may be, we can help you find an effective solution with body and thigh lift techniques at Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD.
How Much Does a Body and Thigh Lift Cost?
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we take a personalized approach to every body and thigh lift procedure. This means that the cost of your treatment will depend on variables like your personal preferences and unique cosmetic goals. As a result, we cannot provide you with the exact cost of treatment until you visit us in-office for a consultation. If you are concerned about the cost of your treatment, we are proud to offer plastic surgery financing to help make our treatments more affordable. In addition, we offer CosmetAssure insurance with every cosmetic surgery, so you can go into your treatment with confidence and peace of mind.
What is the Difference Between Inner and Outer Thigh Lifts?
Thigh lift procedures can be performed as inner thigh lifts, outer thigh lifts, or full thigh lifts. An inner thigh lift addresses the area between the legs, which may be ideal for patients who experience discomfort due to the legs rubbing together. This is also the approach used for patients who would like to achieve a thigh gap. An outer thigh lift addresses the outside of the legs and the hips, which may produce more noticeable results in regards to your overall figure.
What is the Difference Between Upper and Lower Body Lifts?
Body lift procedures can be performed as upper body lifts, lower body lifts, or full body lifts. An upper body lift focuses on the arms, chest and upper back. A lower body lift, on the other hand, focuses on the abdomen, buttocks, hips, and thighs.
What is the Body and Thigh Lift Procedure Like?
The body and thigh lift procedure is performed with general anesthesia in order to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the procedure. The exact treatment approach will depend on your cosmetic goals and unique treatment plan. For this reason, we will not be able to tell you exactly what you can expect from treatment until you visit us for a consultation. However, we always strive to use incisions that are as small and discreet as possible to minimize scarring.
What is Recovery Like Following a Body and Thigh Lift?
The recovery from body and thigh lift procedures will vary by patient depending on their unique treatment plan. In general, you can expect swelling and bruising, which will be worst during the days immediately following treatment. You may have to take two weeks or more off of work and other activities in order to heal and allow these effects to subside. You will also have to avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise, for at least a month after treatment in order to ensure a proper recovery.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Body and Thigh Lift?
The body and thigh lift techniques remove fat and skin from the body, producing results that can be permanent if well-cared for. Patients are encouraged to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits to ensure that their results last as long as possible, as weight gain can affect these results.
