For patients whose legs show both an excess of fat and loose skin that sags down, Dr. Robbins customizes a personalized thigh lift surgical plan of treatment, focusing solely on your individual needs, as far as your legs are concerned, with the goal of achieving natural-looking long lasting results that give your legs an overall unity and continuity that, in turn, enhances your body’s full shape.
What is a Thigh Lift?
Often undertaken after significant weight loss, this procedure helps to reshape the contour of the thighs by removing excess skin, and, in certain instances, the superficial fatty deposits as well, in an effort to create a smoother, more contoured shape that is a customized surgical solution designed to make your legs look more youthful and toned. Oftentimes, patients report restarting exercise postoperatively with greater determination and steadfastness because the results of their efforts are encouragingly made more visible as a result of thigh lift surgery.
Benefits of Thigh Lift
Often after massive weight loss, a certain inelasticity prevents the skin from recontouring back to the shape of the underlying muscle, even, and in spite of, noble efforts at exercise. As a result, all form is largely lost, and instead of toned skin and muscle, folds of loose tissue and excess deposits of fat instead work together to create an unaesthetic and often physically uncomfortable set of body issues. A thigh lift will improve your legs overall contour and youthfulness, allowing you to wear trousers or dresses that were previously uncomfortable.
While each patient is different, and brings their unique goals and concerns to the table, the fundamental objective of a thigh lift is to allow the skin to resume a shape necessary and sufficient for it to recontour to your underlying muscle form, which is what will give you much more toned legs. The psychological boon of removing excess folds of skin often produces a noticeable improvement in self-esteem, in addition to meeting your physical goals for your legs as it relates to form and function.
Thigh Lift Procedure Details
Utilizing a series of incisions that will leave barely noticeable scars, as much as possible along creases, Dr. Robbins will access fat deposits, remove excess skin, and stretch the skin across the underlying tissue to create an overall tautness in your thighs. Dr. Robbins will discuss with you in detail the technical aspects of the procedure, and what your expectations should be both during the surgery and postoperatively during the recovery process.
Thigh Lift Results
Eliminating unwanted excess skin allows patients to wear clothes normally, without chaffing, to engage in physical or social activities such as exercise or going to the beach, that they otherwise might avoid, and to reestablish a youthful contour to your thighs that can be enhanced through exercise and healthy lifestyle choices.
