What Do I Need To Do Before A Thigh Lift?
Just like any other surgery, it’s important to make preparations for your thigh lift procedure with Dr. Zamora, including preparing your home for your recovery period, arranging for assistance in the first 24 hours after your procedure, and doing the following pre-operative preparations:
- Have an overall health check-up
- Complete necessary blood work
- Discontinue use of aspirin, ibuprofen, and certain vitamins and other supplements two weeks prior to your procedure
- Cease smoking two weeks prior to your procedure
- Alter, adjust or discontinue your current daily medications temporarily based on Dr. Zamora’s recommendation
What Should I Expect On The Day Of My Thigh Lift?
Thigh lift surgery is generally performed as an outpatient procedure with the use of general anesthesia. The incision patterns Dr. Zamora will use varies depending upon the area or areas to be treated, degree of correction and your personal preference. Dr. Zamora will make an incision, separate the skin from the underlying fat and muscle, and trim the excess skin. One common technique used for the surgery places incisions in the groin that extend downward and wrap around the back of your thigh. Your underlying tissue is tightened, and then your skin is reduced and redraped, resulting in a more proportionate and smooth body contour. Once he has completed this process, Dr. Zamora will then pull the remaining skin taut and close your incisions. Depending upon your specific needs, liposuction may also be performed at the same time as a thigh lift to achieve optimal outcomes. When your surgery is complete, dressing or bandages will be applied to your incisions. A compression garment is often used to minimize swelling and to support the new contour of your thighs as you heal.
How Long Does It Take To Perform A Thigh Lift?
The thigh lift procedure typically lasts two to three hours with the length of time depending upon how much treatment area needs to be covered and other factors.
What To Expect After A Thigh Lift?
Your incisions will be covered with bandages and dressings, and you may be asked to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling, in addition to potentially having drainage tubes placed under your skin to collect any excess fluid or blood following your procedure. You will be given specific instructions, including how to care for the surgical site, medications to aid in healing and to reduce your potential for infection, and when to follow up with Dr. Zamora. You will need to rest for at least a few days post-surgery, and you can expect to be out of work for anywhere between 10 days to two weeks. Most swelling should resolve within a month, and your full range of activities can be resumed within approximately four months.
Will I Have Scars After Getting A Thigh Lift?
Following your thigh lift procedure, some visible scars will remain, although scars can also improve over time with maximum improvement requiring one year.
