Diet and exercising has many health benefits, including losing weight! However, if weight loss efforts are unable to address firm, tight, and proportionate thighs, a thigh lift performed by Dr. Brueck may be right for you!
What is a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift redefines the thighs by eliminating excess skin and fat that is generally resistant to diet and exercise. This procedure results in smoother skin and defined contours of the lower body.
Thigh lifts do not address the excess fat deposits. Instead, a patient should consider liposuction to remove fat deposits when skin has quality elasticity. However, when skin elasticity is poor, Dr. Brueck may recommend a combination of a thigh lift and liposuction for ideal results.
Am I a good candidate for a Thigh Lift?
If you are at a stable weight, but still struggle with excess soft tissue along your thighs, you may be an excellent candidate for a thigh lift. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise for long-lasting results.
What can I expect from a Thigh Lift?
Results from a thigh lift are immediate, however, will continue to improve over several months. After a thigh lift, patients will notice a dramatic improvement in the appearance, feel, and quality of the skin. This surgery does leave some visible scars, but the overall results are long-lasting.
How long is recovery from a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift recovery consists of an elastic bandage or a compression garment, wrapped around your thighs to reduce swelling and support your new body contours. Temporary small tubes may be placed under the skin to collect excess fluid that may buildup, minimizing your risk of complication.
It is imperative to follow Dr. Brueck’s instructions on how to care for yourself after surgery, medications to take, and when to follow up with your plastic surgeon. During your consultation, make sure to ask Dr. Brueck any questions you may have about what to expect during your recovery period.
