The Thighplasty Procedure
The specific technique for your thigh lift will depend on exactly where your unwanted skin in, and the amount of that skin. If you have skin isolated to the upper part of the inner thighs, Dr. Schulman is likely able to remove the skin using only an incision hidden within the groin crease. If you have a more significant amount of loose skin, or excess skin that extends down towards the knees, you will likely require an additional incision that goes down the inner part of the inner leg. Regardless of the specific incisions, your thigh lift procedure will be performed in the safety of our certified and accredited office operating facility. Your anesthesia will be administered and monitored by our Board Certified Anesthesiologist.
First, Dr. Schulman is likely to perform liposuction to remove unwanted deposits of fat. Next, an incision is made in the crease of the groin and also in the inner part of the thighs. The excess skin is carefully removed and the skin is re-draped more tightly and closed with stitches. The result is a tighter, lifted, and smoother legs.
After the appropriate time in our operating room, you will be allowed to go home with your surgical escort. You will then follow the recovery protocol that will be detailed to you, as you begin to resume normal daily activities.
