Thigh Lift Conveniently located to serve Kirkland and Bellevue
Have your legs accumulated a large amount of excess fat and loose skin that has caused your thighs to acquire a not so pleasant look? These issues can be the result of lack of exercise and skin laxity due to sudden weight loss. The natural aging process can also be a significant contributing factor to skin laxity as well. With a thigh lift from Remington Plastic Surgery, however, you can finally say goodbye to these cosmetic issues.
What is a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift is a surgical procedure designed to recontour the thighs by getting rid of the excess fatty deposits and loose skin that accumulates in the thigh region. The surgery is indicated in patients that have a large amount of excess skin in especially the inner thigh area. This may result from aging, genetics, or weight loss.
This procedure involves a scar placed in the groin and extending to the crease under the buttocks, with the undermining of the skin and lifting it. Liposuction is usually also used in conjunction to shape the thigh as well.
Thigh Lift Recovery
After the procedure, Dr. Remington will place drains in each thigh to help filter out any excess fluids in the treatment area. A compression garment is used to reduce post-operative swelling. Recovery usually is approximately two weeks. It’s important that you take some time off work and refrain from strenuous physical activities during this time.
