Some women have an excess of unwanted fat or loose, saggy skin on their thighs after weight fluctuations, or due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. They are left longing for the slim, trim, look of youthful thighs. When excess fat or skin on your thighs leave you with legs that look heavy or saggy, it can negatively impact your self-confidence. You may be a good candidate for a thigh lift. The procedure is the perfect solution for women who have stubborn fat in the thigh area that will not reduce with diet or exercise. A thigh lift can restore the youthful, tight, sculpted look to the thighs and give you the confidence to wear shorts, swimsuits, or other more revealing clothing options.
The Rose Clinic in Provo, Utah is a well-established practice that focuses on producing beautiful, high-quality results and restoring your feelings of confidence in your body image.
Thigh Lift Procedure
A thigh lift involves several steps, and generally involves the following:
You will be put under general anesthesia for your own comfort, as the procedure is fairly long and complex.
Your incision will differ depending on the area of your thighs that you would like to reduce, as well as the extent of the procedure. The inner thigh lift incision will start in your groin area and continue down around the back of your thigh. If your procedure requires skin removal from the inner thigh, another incision will be placed from the groin area down to the knee so the skin can be sculpted. The outer thigh lift incision starts in the groin area and travels up and over the hip and across the back. The incisions are placed so they can be covered by most clothing. The excess fat, tissue, and skin are then removed from the treatment area to produce the look you envision.
Closing the incisions
Once sufficient fat and skin have been removed, the skin is pulled tight and the incision closed using sutures or other medical adhesives. You may also receive thin tubes in the incisions to drain fluid during as you heal.
You will be observed for a short period before being released to return home. Our doctor will also provide detailed aftercare instructions, a compression garment to control swelling and improve thigh contours, and prescriptions for pain medication and antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection.
Risk & Recovery
The most commonly experienced side effects can be treated with the medication prescribed by Dr. Rose. Serious side effects are rare, and all patients are fully educated on what to expect in surgical outcome, recovery, and risks. Your physical activity should be limited for the first few weeks to protect the incisions and allow them to heal properly. You can reintroduce light activity after the initial stages of recovery, but strenuous exercise or heavy lifting should be avoided until advised by Dr. Rose. He will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
