What is Thigh Lift Surgery?
For most people, the skin around the thigh region is prone to problems such as loosening, sagging, and undulation due to factors such as sedentary life, aging, gravity, weight fluctuations, and giving birth. Surgical intervention in this area may be the solution to these problems.
A thigh lift is performed by removing excess skin and fat, and stretching out the skin to create a smoother and more flattering look. Some patients might require liposuction along with a thigh lift to achieve long-lasting and satisfying results.
Suitability for Thigh Lift Surgery
You are an ideal candidate for thigh lift surgery if you:
Have loose and excess skin folds in your legs
Want to improve the contours of your legs
Would like to improve your body proportions
Wish to improve your confidence
Are healthy and at your ideal weight
Have done your research on the procedure and the possible risks
Recovery from a thigh lift is relatively easy and painless. You can stand up on the same day as the surgery and you will only need to stay in the hospital overnight. You may start taking walks and resume work after about a week, however, you should avoid strenuous activities for at least 3-4 weeks.
As the Voila health care team, we will ensure that you have gone through all the necessary health checkups before your surgery, and always be there for you during recovery to ensure you feel your best the whole time.
Aftercare is as important as the surgery itself when it comes to boosting the effects of the procedure.
Quitting smoking and drinking during the healing process are recommended, as smoking and alcohol intake might slow down the healing and potentially affect the surgery results.
Make sure you keep yourself propped up with multiple pillows while lying down or sleeping.
Swelling is expected but it will start to go down after days 2 and 3, which are the most challenging. Just trust the process.
If necessary, your doctor may prescribe you painkillers.
Patience is key. A better you is on the way!
