Contouring the Thighs
If you are struggling with excess skin and tissue along your thighs, regular diet and exercise may not be enough to achieve the firm, smooth legs that you want. A thigh lift with Dr. Kalnoki can help to improve the shape of your thighs.
Thigh Lift and You
Is a Thigh Lift a Good Fit for You?
The thigh lift is designed to treat areas of excess skin and tissue along the thighs, not for the removal of excess fat. A thigh lift can be beneficial for those who have experienced a loss of skin elasticity in their thighs due to factors such as pregnancy, weight loss or aging. Dr. Kalnoki will make sure that body contouring surgery is right for you during your consultation.
A thigh lift is body sculpting for those who are:
- At a stable weight
- Struggling with excess skin and tissue along the inner or outer thigh
- Living a healthy lifestyle
Issues, such as sagging skin, can negatively impact a person's self-confidence as they age. Dr. Kalnoki believes that a procedure like the thigh lift can help restore a positive self-image to renew the spirit. A thigh lift is sometimes performed along with other body contouring procedures, such as a tummy tuck or arm lift. Liposuction may also be combined with a thigh lift to treat small areas of stubborn fat.
What You Can Expect from Your Thigh Lift Surgery and Recovery
For your procedure, you will be placed under general anesthesia. Using the natural curves and contours of your legs and lower body to minimize future scarring, Dr. Kalnoki will make incisions to address the affected areas. She will reshape and tighten underlying tissue before pulling the skin to a firm contour, and trim away any excess amounts. Once the incisions are closed, Dr. Kalnoki will provide a surgical compression garment to help the skin heal properly and to minimize swelling.
Allow yourself time to recover before returning to work. Dr. Kalnoki will provide you with detailed instructions and her personal cell phone number in case anything comes up. You will notice a difference in the look and feel of your thighs almost immediately.
