What is Thighplasty?
After an extreme or dramatic weight loss, excess skin around the thighs can remain. Many of our patients are often self-conscious about this sagging, loose skin. Unfortunately, there are no exercises, topical lotions or creams, or non-invasive procedures to get rid of noticeably loose skin around the thighs. A thighplasty, also popularly known as a thigh lift, is a surgical cosmetic procedure that removes this excess skin and provides a dramatic change in the appearance and shape of the thighs. Not only does this procedure smooth out the skin, but it also contours the thighs to a more aesthetically pleasing, slimmer shape.
What are the Benefits of Thighplasty?
There are many benefits of receiving a thigh lift with Dr. Breister Ghosh and her medical team, including:
- Removes excess skin from around the thighs
- Can be performed in conjunction with other body contouring procedures like liposuction
- Improves the comfort and fit of clothes
- Boosts overall confidence
How is Thighplasty Performed?
Your thighplasty will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in an accredited outpatient surgical center. There are a variety of techniques and incision patterns that can be performed. Dr. Breister Ghosh will thoroughly discuss which option may be best for you during your private consultation. One common thigh lift method involves an incision in the groin that extends down towards the inside of the knee. This allows for the removal of excess skin and tightening of the entire length of the thigh. Dr. Breister Ghosh ensures all incisions are strategically placed to minimize the appearance of scars. If needed, liposuction can be added to further contour the thighs. The entirety of your thigh lift may take up to 3 hours to complete.
What Can I Expect After My Thighplasty?
Drains will be placed at the time of the procedure to collect and drain any fluid that may accumulate throughout your recovery process. Dr. Breister Ghosh will also fit you with a compression garment that will help reduce swelling and promote proper healing. This compression garment is typically required to be worn for about 6 weeks following surgery. Patients should talk with Dr. Breister Ghosh about the physical demands of their job, but should usually plan for about 2 to 4 weeks off work.
How Much Will My Thighplasty Cost?
The cost of your thigh lift will likely vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results.
