Because the femur (upper leg bone) is the largest and strongest bone in the body, it stands to reason that it is surrounded by the most tissue, muscle, fat, and skin of any of our limbs. Consequently, when our skin starts to sag or droop, it can be especially troublesome around our thighs. There are many reasons why the skin and fatty areas of our thighs might droop. Among the most probably are aging, recent weight loss, and heredity. Whatever the reason for sagging thighs, they can cause us to be uncomfortable and self-conscious about their unsightliness. Thankfully, Dr. Justin Yovino can perform a thigh lift in order to give thighs a firmer, smoother, more toned appearance.
Because your surgery procedure will remove significant portions of skin and other tissues and may involve laser liposuction in order to remove fat and cellulite, the results will be instantaneous. Before performing any cosmetic surgery, Dr. Yovino will consult with you to ensure that you are committed to the type of lifestyle that the success of your thigh lift will depend upon.
Following your plastic surgery, you can expect some initial tenderness in the areas where tissues were removed. There will also be some initial visible scarring; however, those scars will fade over time.
