THIGH LIFT

Thigh lift, thighplasty or also known as thigh reduction is a modern surgical procedure for reshaping thighs by removing excess skin and fat; this gives you smoother skin and an even contour on your thighs and lower body. Ageing and weight loss can cause the thigh skin to become flabby, saggy or dimpled. In some women (and men), the problem is further intensified by fat deposits. Thigh lift surgery is performed alone, or in combination with other techniques such as liposuction or a lower body lift. This procedure can be effective in restoring a firmer and more youthful contour of the thighs.

The aim of thigh lift or thighplasty procedure is to reduce and tighten the flabby, loose or dimpled skin and create thighs that appear proportionate to the legs, buttocks and abs.

TYPES OF THIGH LIFTS

Thigh lift surgeries may vary, depending on the pattern of incision. Among all thigh lift techniques, inner or medial thigh lifts are the most popular; these involve creating incisions in the groin crease to tighten thigh tissues and skin. People with a moderate amount of thigh fat and skin can opt for this procedure.

In vertical thighplasty vertical incisions are made, starting at the groin fold and extending towards the inner knees to remove a segment of the inner thigh skin. Scars may be visible when wearing short dresses and swim suits. Those with significant amount of loose skin and fat that cannot be fully addressed with simple lift may require this addition to a standard incision hidden in the groin crease.

An outer thigh lift involves incisions starting at the groin and extending around the hips.

Spiral thighplasty targets the inner, outer, front and back parts of thighs, involving incisions beneath the buttock crease that continue above the groin fold to the meeting point of thighs and pubic area.

THIGH LIFT SURGERY PROCEDURE

Although techniques may vary, the key steps followed in every thigh lift surgery are similar.

The operation is performed under general anaesthesia. Mr Javaid will makes the necessary incisions based on the extent of loose skin and fat that requires removal, this is then lifted or removed to tighten and reshape the thighs. Deep support stitches are used to form the restructured contours and the wounds are closed with sutures.

THIGH LIFT POST-SURGERY RECOVERY

The duration of surgery varies according to the technique, and you might require a short stay at the hospital. Considerable bruising, soreness or swelling may occur, however painkillers are administered to comfort you. A tight pressure garment is fitted immediately after the surgery and it is recommended to wear this for 4-6 weeks in order to protect the wound and reduce swelling. Stitches are normally removed after a week, though deeper sutures will remain in place for two or three weeks. Usually, patients can go back to work after two weeks, however strenuous activities should be strictly avoided for one month.

POTENTIAL RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS

Anaesthesia risks, Bleeding, haematoma, seroma, infection, numbness around the scars, wound healing, skin necrosis, scar related problems including stretched scars, dissatisfaction with the appearance, recurrence of deformity.

THIGH LIFT SUMMARY

Operation duration: 2-3 hours. Anaesthesia: General. Hospital Stay: 1-2 nights. Time offwork: 2 weeks. Overall result: Visible from 2-6 months.

Arm Lift - Brachioplasty

View this post on Instagram

Arm Lift Surgery⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Aging, weight loss and gravity can cause the skin to stretch and make the arms appear droopy giving bat wings type appearance. Significant weight loss can especially lead to stretched and loose skin that cannot be improved by exercise. Upper arms are particularly affected, due to the accumulation of excess fat and decreasing supportive muscle tone. Workouts can fortify the essential muscle tone but cannot improve the weakened dermal tissues or surplus skin and localised fat.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Brachioplasty can help address the problem of sagging and loose appearance of the upper arms by removing the surplus fat and skin – giving it a smooth, toned contour.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Enquiries in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire: Please speak to Mrs Pauline Titley (private secretary) on 077 8069 8989⠀⁠⠀ ⠀⁠⠀ #cosmeticsurgery ⁠⠀ #bedfordshire ⠀⁠⠀ #hertfordshire ⠀⁠⠀ #derbyshire ⠀⁠⠀ #nottinghamshire⁠⠀ #stevenage ⁠⠀ #hitchin⁠⠀ #luton ⁠⠀ #hatfield⁠⠀ ⁠⠀
