The thighs can be difficult to tighten and tone, especially because of the effects of aging and significant weight loss. Excess fat or loose skin on the upper, inner thighs may prevent you from feeling confident about your body, particularly in the warm summer months when it’s more comfortable to wear shorts or skirts.
The objective of thigh lift surgery (thighplasty) is three-fold: remove excess fat, tighten the skin and improve the shape of the upper thigh. With tighter and more toned thighs, you should see a substantial increase in your self-confidence. Your clothing options will also expand and you will enjoy a more youthful contour. Dr. Humberto Palladino offers thigh lift surgery in El Paso at Southwest Plastic Surgery, and would be glad to talk to you about the procedure during a personal consultation.
If you are unhappy with excessive fat and skin on your upper thighs, you may be a good candidate for thigh lift. Dr. Palladino will explain the procedure and what it can specifically accomplish during a thigh lift consultation. The Southwest Plastic Surgery team will give you all the information you need during your consultation in order to prepare for surgery and your recovery. Dr. Palladino will discuss the surgical techniques he plans to use, as well as other body sculpting procedures like arm lift, body lift, liposuction or tummy tuck for more comprehensive body makeover results.
The Procedure – What to Expect
Thigh lift is an outpatient procedure, so you can leave the surgery center afterward and recover in the comfort of your own home. On the day of your thigh lift, you should have a friend or family member drive you to the surgical center and wait for you during surgery. Before going into surgery, Dr. Palladino will make marks on your legs to help guide him. You will receive anesthesia to help you sleep comfortably during surgery. After surgery, you will be taken to a recovery suite to be monitored for a short time, and then your companion will drive you home.
Thigh lift recovery varies by patient, but will probably be shorter than you think. The most important thing to remember during your thigh lift recovery is to get as much rest as possible and avoid any strenuous movement until Dr. Palladino clears you to return to your normal activities. Other guidelines for recovery will be discussed during your initial consultation. If you have any questions about your thigh lift recovery, Dr. Palladino and the Southwest Plastic Surgery team is only a phone call away.
Thigh lift cost varies depending on the technique selected for the procedure, the type of anesthesia, and the length of the hospital stay. In general, it will be anywhere between $3,000-$5,000.
