Thigh Lift in Evansville and Jasper, IN
The thighs are notorious for being difficult to slim down and tone. A thigh lift performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Flannagan at Flannagan Plastic Surgery could be the solution for all residents of Southern Indiana, Northern Kentucky, and Illinois who want to slim and tone their thighs or achieve that coveted “thigh gap.”
What is a Thigh Lift?
A thigh lift procedure is a surgery performed to tighten and tone the upper thighs by removing sagging skin and excess fat. It may sometimes be used to shape the legs with more pleasing contours or to create a “thigh gap” or space between the thighs. A thigh gap is often desired not only because it is a current body trend, but also to eliminate friction or rubbing that can make walking or playing sports uncomfortable.
Benefits of a Thigh Lift
Many women are obsessed with how to get a thigh gap; however, the truth is that not everyone can achieve one. A person’s basic body structure cannot be altered, so those with a certain anatomy will find it impossible to achieve a thigh gap. A thigh lift may be the only way for these individuals to create space between the thighs and eliminate unwanted chafing or discomfort.
A thigh lift can also tighten and tone this problem area, which often does not respond well to ordinary workouts. In some cases, a thigh lift may even reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Is a Thigh Lift Right for Me?
If you are concerned about having very large thighs despite being at or near your ideal weight, the only way to reduce their size could be a thigh lift.
Elements of a Thigh Lift
A thigh lift is a highly-tailored procedure, as Dr. Flannagan will develop a technique especially for your body contours. Even so, you can expect the following during your thigh lift procedure:
- Marking of the area where excess fat and skin are to be removed
- General anesthesia
- Incisions along the inner thighs so that excess tissue can be accessed
- Trimming and tightening of inner tissue
- Stitches to close the outer skin
How Long is the Recovery After a Thigh Lift?
You will need to avoid activities such as bicycling, leg lifts, and running for about four to six weeks. Light walking during this time is fine and is actually encouraged to ensure good circulation and promote healing.
