Thigh Lift, also known as thighplasty, is a cosmetic surgery to improve and reshape the appearance of the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat. The goal of a thigh lift is to contour your thighs so that they look in proportion with the rest of your body as well as to eliminate sagging skin due to aging, pregnancy, or significant weight loss. If you want your thighs to be more youthful-looking or proportionate to your body image, and fitness and weight control have not worked for you, then you can consider this procedure.
A thigh lift is performed under general or epidural anesthetic. Your surgeon may create an incision in the groin area, then they may remove excess skin and fat. After that, your surgeon reshapes and tightens the underlying tissue, and the remaining skin is smoothed, lifted, and stitched into place at the incision site. Your doctor may also combine the procedure with liposuction.
Since thigh lift is often performed as an outpatient procedure, you should be able to leave the hospital on the same day of the surgery. However, the recommended total length of stay in Costa Rica is about 14 days since your doctor needs to remove the stitches within two weeks following the surgery.
You can expect to go back to work within 7 to 10 days after your surgery, but the full recovery period until you can resume physical activity may take about 4 to 6 weeks. Since the recovery period can vary from one person to another, make sure to ask your doctor about your recovery timeline, including when you can start doing intense exercise, heavy lifting, and other vigorous activities.
You will be given specific instructions regarding medication, wound care, diet, and exercise. You will likely need to attend a follow-up checkup with your plastic surgeon to monitor your healing progress. After you are fully healed, it is important for you to follow a healthy diet, have regular exercise, and maintain a healthy weight to retain the result of your thigh lift.
A thigh lift is generally safe and the success rate is high. However, you need to be aware that the procedure has some side effects and risks, such as poor wound healing, infection, bleeding, seroma, asymmetry, deep vein thrombosis, skin loss, persistent pain, skin discoloration, numbness, recurrent looseness of the skin, and allergic reaction to the anesthetic.
If you do not like the idea of undergoing surgery or you are not an ideal candidate for the procedure, you may want to consider the alternatives, including liposuction, Vaser liposuction, and laser skin tightening. Consult with your plastic surgeon about which procedure is better for your situation.
Before a tight lift, your thighs may look dimpled, saggy, and flabby. You may not feel confident about the appearance of your thighs because they are not proportionate to your body image. After the procedure, you can immediately see a positive change to your thighs. Your thighs will look more youthful and firmer.
