If you have lost a significant amount of weight and have excess, loose skin in the upper leg and hip area, or if you are displeased with the shape of your thighs, you could be a candidate for a thigh lift. The procedure goes one step further than liposuction to improve the contours of your thighs, removing not only thigh fat, but also excess skin.
BEFORE & AFTER THIGH LIFT
Actual patient of Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery.
If you have lost a significant amount of weight and are displeased with the excess, loose skin in the upper leg and hip area, you could be a candidate for a thigh lift. Many times, these candidates are also unhappy with the shape of their thighs, which happen to be dimpled, flabby or saggy too. This is different than thigh liposuction because it goes one step further, in that it not only removes thigh fat, but also removed excess skin that is getting in the way.
Different types of thigh lifts are available:
- Hip or Lateral: Outer thigh lift
- Medial: Inner thigh lift
THIGH LIFT SURGERY
Dr. Wendel will perform inner or outer thigh lift in Nashville using anesthesia in a fully accredited surgical facility. To begin the procedure, Dr. Wendel will move the patient on their side to allow for sufficient access to the fat on the back of the thighs. He will make a surgical incision in the inner or outer thigh region to remove and drape the excess sagging skin. Liposuction may also be performed in the fatty areas to improve the thigh contours. Dr. Wendel will suture the incision and go over your recovery instructions in order to minimize any discomfort.
