Your thighs are an integral part of your appearance, and when they are not the size and shape you want them to be, it can cause some self-esteem concerns. However, that unhappiness you feel doesn’t have to even exist. Instead, consider a thigh lift, or thighplasty, from the skilled team at JHopkins Plastic Surgery.
When patients come to Dr. Hopkins to address the thigh areas, they find that this plastic surgery procedure works to correct and lift thighs, creating a new desired look from the waist down.
A thigh lift surgery is undergone by both men and women looking to reduce excess skin around their thighs, reshaping the entire structure in the process, which results in smoother skin and proportionate contours. Most patients who opt for the surgery simply find that fitness and weight loss are not working for their needs.
Before the procedure, anesthesia is administered to ensure you are completely comfortable and experience zero pain during the operation. This includes intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best option for your needs. Once you are under the anesthesia, incision patterns will be drawn out by the surgeon. Incisions in the groin are the most common techniques for a thigh lift, extending down and wrapping around the back. The underlying tissue will then be reshaped for the more proportion appearance the patient is seeking. When all is said and done, the procedure does not take too long and works wonders for many.
It is not without saying that with a thigh lift surgery comes with risks. However, these are the standard risks you’d encounter with any surgery. This involves possible infection, necessary recovery time, and thorough treatment of the surgical area. These worries are no more than any other patient may have with any other surgery. When you follow the proper protocol put in place by your cosmetic surgeon, the risks are minimal.
We often get asked about the cost of a thigh plasty procedure. Patients will even ask if plastic surgery itself is covered by health insurance. If the procedure is medically necessary, it is possible it could be covered. Thigh lifts are no exception: make the call to your carrier to see if this is a possibility. With the right physician, however, medical insurance coverage isn’t a make or break scenario. A surgeon who puts you first will offer payment plans that suit your financial needs. With financing, you can achieve the look you want without waiting.
With recovery time and quality follow-through, we can ensure that you’ll be satisfied with your thighs afterwards. They will look the way you’ve always wanted them to. After the surgery, you can expect a brand new you with new legs, a new outlook, and a newfound happiness.
