Thigh Lift | Plastic Surgery | Salt Lake City
You have exercised and dieted and exercised some more and you still can’t get rid of excess fat along your inner or outer thighs, then a surgical thigh lift may be something to consider.
A surgical thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of your thighs and lower body.
Am I A Candidate For A Lower Thigh Lift?
The best candidates for a thigh lift are those who maintain a stable weight, do not smoke, are in good overall health, and have excess fat and tissue on the inner and outer thighs. It is also important to have a positive outlook and realistic goals for what thigh lift surgery can accomplish.
The Thigh Lift procedure is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Rodrigues will make incisions in locations where scarring will be minimized or hidden beneath clothing. Dr. Rodrigues then removes the extra skin and tightens the tissues, then applies sutures and sterile dressings.
After a one to two week recovery period, you should be able to return to your normal activities. Any associated swelling and bruising will subside within a few weeks.
As part of his patient-centric care, Dr. Rodrigues will be happy to meet with you personally to explore the best treatment options for your desired result.
