Plastic surgeons and Gainesville’s Accent Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics understand all too well the challenges many women face in trying to address excess skin and fat in the thigh and buttocks region…these areas are perhaps the most difficult to control through good dieting and exercise.
A thigh lift, a procedure we offer here at our Gainesville plastic surgery center, provides help for those where good dieting and exercise aren’t quite getting the job done.
Read on to learn more about how a thigh lift can help give you the look you’ve worked so hard to accomplish.
First you have to decide if a thigh lift is right for you…basically, if you’re in good health, have realistic expectations and do not smoke, you can safely get a thigh lift. But if excess fat is your only problem, a liposuction procedure maybe all you need.
If you decide thigh lift surgery is what you need to accomplish your goals, there are some preparations you will need to make. After consulting with Florida plastic surgeons at Accent, you may need to start, stop or adjust any medications you’re on. You will need to be sure someone can drive you home after your procedure as well.
Once the procedure is complete, you will have some recovery time after a thigh lift. Surgeons will place bandages and maybe even a compression garment to help the incisions heal…they may even place a small tube to drain excess fluids and blood. But in about 1-2 weeks, you should be back to 100% and love your new look.
The important rule to remember with any plastic surgery procedure – do it because you want to, not to satisfy someone else’s wishes.
