Next to the abdominal area, thighs are also prone to developing loose skin. This may occur due to aging, lack of exercise, genetics, substantial weight loss, or other factors. Sometimes the excess skin and cellulite condition may occur along with excess fat tissue in the thighs. In all such conditions, the appearance of the thighs is compromised. If a person is unhappy with such appearance, Dr. Bradley Hubbard, a plastic surgeon in Dallas, provides the option of thigh lift surgery.
How Will Thigh Lift Surgery Help?
Thigh lift surgery can provide a tighter skin and more youthful looking leg contour to a person. The surgery is not without a scar, and the challenge in case of thighs, just like arms, is that there may not be sufficient opportunity to hide the scars in a discreet area. However, Dr. Hubbard makes sure that at his office, every procedure of cosmetic surgery is aimed at achieving satisfactory results with minimal scarring. He explains the trade off to the patients in advance, where by the patient is aware that the improvement in leg contour will come at the cost of a visible scar.
With realistic expectations from the procedure, most patients are able to achieve very satisfactory outcomes. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon in Dallas, Dr. Hubbard evaluates a patient’s health condition, medical history and previous surgeries before recommending the appropriate procedure. In some cases, the patient may have full inner and outer thighs with a fair amount of skin elasticity.
Candidates for Thigh Lift Surgery
Such candidates may be ideal or terrifically suitable for liposuction, and not a thigh lift. However, patients having loose skin in the thigh area along with poor skin elasticity may benefit from a thigh lift, or a combination of liposuction and thigh lift. Thigh lift cosmetic surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, and the procedure may last for about three hours. Dr. Hubbard performs this procedure on an outpatient basis.
