Thigh Lift Improving patient results and care
Description: People gain weight in different areas and some areas are very stubborn to let go of the extra fatty tissues. In some people this problem area includes the thighs. There are many variations in the size, amount, and shape of the contour irregularities. Some patients carry their weight in the upper aspect of the inner thighs while others carry it along the entire inner thigh, sometimes extending to the knees. Dr Deigni thoroughly examines each patient and develops a plan based on the particular distribution of the bothersome tissues. Some patients may need only liposuction, while other may need a combination of liposuction and surgical excision. There are a number of different techniques that help improve this area of the body and can include a horizontal component, a vertical component, or a combination of both.
Surgery: A thigh lift is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about 3 – 4 hours.
