The Basics – Boca Raton Thigh Lift
Over the years, there have been many advances in cosmetic plastic surgery. Boca Raton residents whose thighs have a lumpy, sagging look can get help with a proven surgical method to tighten and lift the skin, creating a more youthful, more attractive contour. In just a few hours, Dr. Schuster or Dr. Kovacs can enhance the appearance of your thighs.
Recovery following a thigh lift is relatively uncomplicated and rapid for most patients. Our surgeons recommend that you rest and take it easy for a several days after surgery, gradually adding in your normal activities when you can do them comfortably. You should be ready to return to work in about seven to 10 days, but your final results may not be revealed for several months as incisions heal and swelling subsides. Exercise can be resumed for most patients after about a month.
Your Procedure, Your New Look
Dr. Schuster and Dr. Kovacs perform thigh lift cosmetic plastic surgery in Boca Raton based on your anatomy and your cosmetic improvement goals. By tightening skin and muscle tissue, they are able to create a smoother, firmer thigh appearance. An inner thigh lift uses an incision in the crease where the thigh connects to the pubic area, while an outer thigh lift requires a circumferential incision around the thigh by the hip. Regardless of where incisions are placed, Dr. Schuster and Dr. Kovacs attempt to minimize scarring and hide incisions in natural folds and creases.
In many cases thigh lift patients also can benefit from liposuction in Boca Raton. This procedure can be combined with a thigh lift to remove excess fat in the thighs and tighten skin and muscle all during a single surgical session.
The Doctors Answer Your Questions
Even if you feel a bit self-conscious when you first come in, you'll probably find your consultation to be comfortable and rewarding. We'll take time to get to know you and learn about your lifestyle, and make sure every one of your questions is answered. Here are a few common questions we get about thigh lift in Boca Raton.
Will my results be permanent?
Women and men who choose thigh lift cosmetic surgery at our practice can expect to enjoy an improved mid-body appearance for many years. Some scarring is likely to remain after the procedure, though scars should continue to lighten during the first year after surgery. Your firmer, tighter thigh appearance will last for a long time, especially if you continue to eat healthful foods and get plenty of exercise. Keep in mind that some loosening of the skin and muscle over time should be expected as part of the natural aging process.
What are some risks associated with this procedure?
In our experience, thigh lift plastic surgery is a very safe procedure with most patients enjoying a comfortable recovery and pleasing results. As with any surgery, unattractive scarring, bleeding, infection and blood clots are all possible side effects, though these occur infrequently. Unsatisfying results can be corrected through revision surgery. The overwhelming number of thigh lift patients do not encounter a major complication as they recover.
How do I know if I need liposuction or a thigh lift?
If you are concerned about excess fat on your thighs, liposuction is necessary in most cases to create a slimmer appearance. For some women and men, liposuction alone may give them their desired results. For others, liposuction will create or worsen the appearance of loose skin on the thighs, and the only way to correct this problem is to tighten this loose skin is through a thigh lift. That's why a personal consultation is so important.
