A thigh lift can re-shape and tighten the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat. Gravity is affecting all of us as we age, and changes in skin elasticity, genetic influence, and weight fluctuations can all greatly influence the bodies appearance. Despite the best efforts to exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle, there are some elements to our bodies that we are unable to change. A challenging area can be loose, sagging skin in the medial and lateral thighs. Exercise can be effective to strengthen the underlying muscles, but has limitations to address the excess skin that has lost its elasticity, or localize fat deposits. Thigh Lift surgery is often combined with Liposuction to help achieve a beautiful, slim and contoured appearance.
The goals for a Thigh Lift are to:
- Remove the excess skin and fat from the thigh.
- Reshape the thigh to improve the contour.
- Create a more toned and proportional appearance to the rest of the body.
To learn how Thigh Lift surgery can make a great difference in the way you look and feel, request a consultation with Dr. Seal, or call our office at (604) 569-2895 to schedule an appointment. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you learn more about the procedure on the road to achieving all of your aesthetic goals.
Thigh Lift Considerations
Optimizing your lifestyle is important before considering having a Thigh Lift procedure. Having a balance of a healthy, nutritious diet, together with a consistent, sustainable exercise program is key to this process. As well, smoking should be stopped before considering surgery, as this can greatly increase risks around the procedure. These lifestyle commitments help to ease the recovery period and ensure that you have beautiful long lasting results.
It is important to consider that the surgery results in some scars on the medial thighs. One of Dr. Seal’s goals for your thigh lift surgery, is to make your incisions as unnoticeable as possible. The surgery however, cannot be done without creating some scars. These are strategically placed on the medial aspect of the thighs, and in the groin crease, to help hide them as best as possible, and they continue to fade over the first year after your surgery. All of the important things you can do to help optimize your incision and results are reviewed during your follow-up visits.
