Thigh Lift in Sugar Land
Body Expertise You Can Count On
Weight loss and aging are some of the main reasons people may find the skin of their thighs sagging. Usually, the inside part of the thighs is where the skin is seen drooping the most. A common complaint is that the insides of the thighs rub together, creating complications during exercise, which in turn makes it harder to lose weight. The appearance of the thighs is also very tough to hide in pants, making it necessary to wear dresses or skirts. Both men and women irritated by this condition may benefit from a thigh lift procedure.
Is a Thigh Lift Right for Me?
Thigh lift surgery places an incision in the crease between the thigh and groin. Dr. Kutty will try as much as possible to keep the incision hidden. The skin of the thigh is then pulled up and the excess skin is removed. Liposuction may be done to further reduce the thickness of the tissues. Sutures are used to hold the tissues in place and to minimize stretching of the scar. The rubbing of the inner thighs is also significantly reduced.
On the thighs, two factors cause skin laxity:
- The first is the loss of a large amount of fat from within the thigh (especially on the inner thigh), which causes the skin to deflate much like a balloon.
- The second is that when the skin is stretched over a large amount of fat for a long time, it loses its firmness and cannot tighten back over the muscles by itself. This means the extra skin has to be surgically removed.
What to Expect After a Thigh Lift
In some cases, patients will need more liposuction than skin removal to enhance contour. If there is enough loose skin on the outside part of the thigh, a thigh lift may be needed as well. After surgery, we’ll provide you with a special garment that you’ll need to wear for several weeks. Recovery and return to work typically takes a few weeks, but ultimately depends on the individual’s unique case.
Am I a Candidate for Thigh Lift?
A good candidate for a thigh lift surgery will typically be conscious of their saggy and loose skin on the inner and outer thighs. For patients who’ve undergone a major weight transformation, they may be more likely to be plagued with excess skin. All candidates for thigh lifts will be thoroughly examined on an individual basis by our surgeon, Dr. Kutty. He’ll determine your overall body type and note factors where skin elasticity is prevalent. He’ll inquire about your ideal results and walk you through the procedure, as well as answer any questions or concerns you may have.
