What is better for me: a thigh lift or thigh liposuction?
Liposuction is a powerful technique for removing stubborn, excess fat and can significantly improve the shape of your thighs. It will not, however, treat loose skin. If significant skin laxity is present, loose skin must be directly excised to achieve a smooth thigh contour – this is where a thigh lift comes in. Additionally, liposuction is often performed as part of a thigh lift. Dr. Smith will work with you at your consultation to determine the best approach for your specific needs.
Can I go home the day of surgery?
Yes. When you recover from the anesthesia, you will be able to go home the same day. You will need someone with you to drive you home and take care of you for a few days after the procedure. Because of where the incisions are placed, driving should be avoided until you are cleared by Dr. Smith after your thigh lift.
When will I see the results after a thigh lift?
You will see a significant improvement in your body’s shape immediately after surgery. It can take from 3-6 months to see the final result as your swelling resolves and your tissues heal.
