Thigh Lift in Cary and Fayetteville, NC
If you are looking for a way to achieve a thigh gap or eliminate sagging skin on the legs, you may want to consider a thigh lift at Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics. We offer thigh lifts to residents of Cape Fear, Lumberton, Cary and the neighboring areas of North Carolina.
What is a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift is a cosmetic surgery that improves the shape of the thighs by removing excess skin and fat. This may be an ideal treatment for patients who have small, stubborn pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. This treatment is not designed primarily as a fat reduction procedure. For patients who are looking for a significant reduction of fat, we may recommend liposuction in combination with the thigh lift procedure.
What Are Inner and Outer Thigh Lifts?
The thigh lift procedure can be performed on the inner thighs, the outer thighs, or both. During an inner thigh lift, only the area inside the thighs are treated. This may be the ideal thigh lift treatment for patients who commonly experience rashes or other discomforts as a result of the inner legs rubbing together. The outer thigh lift targets the outside of the thighs and underneath the buttocks. Patients looking for more dramatic body sculpting results may choose to combine the outer and inner thigh lifts for a complete thigh lift procedure.
How to Get a Thigh Gap
A thigh gap is an aesthetic feature that many find desirable. Unfortunately, this feature can be very difficult to obtain, even with strict diet and exercise. Patients who are looking to achieve a thigh gap may be able to achieve one with an inner thigh lift. By removing excess skin and fat from the inside of the legs, patients can sculpt their thighs and are often able to achieve a thigh gap.
What Should I Expect from the Thigh Lift Procedure?
The thigh lift procedure will vary depending on the type of thigh lift performed, whether its an inner thigh lift, outer thigh lift, or both. Typically, incisions are made along the groin area and may occasionally stretch around the hip. We do our best to use the smallest incisions possible in order to produce inconspicuous, minimal scarring. We perform thigh lifts with the aid of general anesthesia to ensure the safety and comfort of each patient. A thigh lift can take up to three hours, depending on the extent of surgery required.
What is Recovery Like Following a Thigh Lift?
After a thigh lift, most patients will experience mild to moderate swelling for up to two weeks after their treatment. During this time, patients may have to take time away from work and other regular activities. We recommend that patients rest and avoid strenuous activities during their recovery. After your treatment, we will provide additional specific post-operative instructions to facilitate a smooth and quick recovery.
How Much Does a Thigh Lift Cost?
