Do you feel self-conscious about the way your thighs look every time you’re out with your friends? If you’ve given up on the idea of ever showing your legs in public again, it’s time for a change.
Getting your thighs in shape can be extremely challenging and very frustrating, especially when you don’t see any progress. Thigh fat is extremely stubborn, and no amount of exercise will get rid of that loose sagging skin.
A great way to improve the appearance of your thighs is to undergo a thigh lift, also known as thighplasty surgery.
What Is a Thighplasty?
A thighplasty trims away excess drooping skin and pockets of excess fat, thereby improving the aesthetics in this region significantly. It is particularly helpful after massive weight loss, since the skin has trouble shrinking back down once the fat has been removed and instead hangs from the body.
It is performed with the help of general anesthesia. Dr. Bennett will make incisions, remove the excess fat and skin, and then tighten and reshape the tissues while smoothing and lifting the remainder of the skin.
In most cases, the surgery will take two to three hours, after which you can go home. You should make it a point to ask a friend or family member to accompany you on the day of your thighplasty surgery and to give you a ride home afterwards.
How Should You Prepare for Your Thighplasty Surgery?
To prepare for your thighplasty surgery, you should avoid smoking for a minimum of two weeks before the procedure. Dr. Bennett will give you information on what types of medications you must avoid before your thighplasty procedure. She will also tell you what kind of diet you will need to follow on the day before the procedure.
Recovery from Thighplasty Surgery
After the thighplasty surgery, Dr. Bennett will ask you to wear elastic post-surgical compression garments to speed up the healing process. These garments will control swelling and help your skin better conform to your new contours.
You must rest after the treatment for a time. It will be around seven to ten days before you can come back to work, so make sure you take enough time off. You will be able to resume physically taxing activities like exercise and sports within four to six weeks after the treatment.
Once you get a thighplasty surgery, the youthful look of your thighs will be restored. The best part about thighplasty surgery is that the results are long lasting. While you can see the initial changes brought about by this treatment immediately, it will take a couple of months to see the final outcome from the procedure.
