4 Ways to Get Thinner Thighs

4 Ways to Get Thinner Thighs – 

Of all areas of the body, the thighs are among the most difficult from which to lose fat. And while lifestyle adjustments like dieting and exercising are important to losing weight, they can only do so much to thin thighs. While we can control (to some extent) how much weight we lose, we have absolutely no control over where weight loss occurs on our body. And, arguably, no area is more diet-and-exercise-resistant than the thighs – something that leads many on the search for some kind of medical thigh reduction solution.

For such individuals, at AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Troy, MI area, we offer four cutting-edge non-surgical and surgical thigh reduction and toning procedures. In this article, we’ll discuss how despite being such an infamous “problem area,” thinner thighs can now be a reality for anyone.

Liposuction for Thinner Thighs

Out of every thigh reduction option available to our patients, liposuction is perhaps the most popular. By gently removing excess fat from the thigh area, liposuction is a safe and effective means of attaining thinner thighs. Less invasive than thigh lift surgery, thigh reduction liposuction also has a shorter recovery time.

Through the use of tiny tubes called micro-cannulas, board certified Troy, MI area plastic surgeon gently dislodges fat from the treatment area. The micro-cannulas then suck the fat from the thigh, resulting in thinner thighs than ever before.

Usually, this particular thigh reduction procedure requires only light anesthesia. Liposuction patients are afforded thinner thighs with only a few days of downtime – far less than with thigh lift surgery.

CoolSculpting for Thinner Thighs

CoolSculpting for thigh reduction is a completely non-invasive, non-surgical method of obtaining thinner thighs. Unlike liposuction, which simply removes unwanted fat via suction, CoolSculpting instead physically freezes the fat cells of the treatment area. In the weeks that follow, these unwanted fat cells will die, collapse, and be naturally eliminated from the body. While highly effective at getting rid of fat, CoolSculpting does not result in the body contouring produced by liposuction.

And, while CoolSculpting is a safe and effective way to get thinner thighs, patients should not expect immediate results. In most cases, it takes a few weeks for full thigh reduction results to become visible. Furthermore, while liposuction can provide thigh reduction with just one trip to our Troy, MI area practice, CoolSculpting delivers peak results only through a series of treatments.

Profound for Tighter, Toned Thighs

When performed on its own – or in combination with fat loss from liposuction or CoolSculpting –amazing new Profound radiofrequency skin tightening can help patients achieve firm toned thighs!

This revolutionary thigh reduction procedure is as effective as it is groundbreaking. Using radiofrequency energy, Profound RF skin tightening is able to deliver incredible, toned results completely non-surgically. With results that last, patients can say goodbye to sagging, lax, or loose thigh skin.

Thigh Lift Surgery for Thinner Thighs

Unlike the other less invasive thigh reduction procedures, thigh lift surgery is a more invasive, but extremely effective, way to get thinner thighs. Many of our Troy, MI area patients visit us for thigh lift surgery as a way to get rid of stubborn fat, but the procedure is equally effective at removing and tightening significantly loose or excess skin.

During thigh lift surgery an incision is made under anesthetic, and Dr. Ali removes fat and surgically reshapes and tightens the tissue.  He will also remove excess outer skin and redrape it to offer a smooth, proportionate looking contour.

Deep support sutures will be placed in the underlying tissues to ensure that the new shape of the thinner thigh area remains in place. Then, Dr. Ali will close the skin incisions with sutures. Dr. Ali will take great care to make incisions in areas that will be masked by most clothing and bathing suits.

4 Ways to Get Thinner Thighs: Fat Loss Without Diet or Exercise (Part 2)– 

Just as your DNA determines what color eyes and hair you will have, your genes also determine where the fat cells in your body will be distributed. Some people’s DNA results in fat cells being placed around their middle – while others have fat cells deposited in their thighs. And, as anyone with bigger thighs will tell you, fat loss in the thigh area is almost impossible with diet and exercise alone.

In this two part article, board-certified Detroit area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali discusses some of the latest and most advanced means of getting thinner thighs with non-invasive, minimally-invasive and surgical fat loss treatments.

3. Thigh Lift Surgery for Fat Loss & Thinner, Toned Thighs

During thigh lift surgery, board-certified Detroit area plastic surgeon provides patients with thinner thighs by removing fat at excess skin. The end result are well-proportioned, smoother, and of course, thinner thighs.

While thigh lift surgery can create the appearance of thinner thighs, it is not a weight loss technique. While it is not possible to remove large amounts of fat through the procedure., thigh lift surgery can effectively be combined with liposuction for more substantial fat loss in the thigh area. That being said, thigh lift surgery is nonetheless an excellent way to improve the appearance of the legs of anyone who wishes they had thinner thighs.

Thigh lift surgery for thinner thighs begins with an incision that typically extends from the groin down to the thigh, or out towards the hip. Following this, board certified Detroit area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali tightens and reshapes the tissue, removes excess skin, and re-drapes it into a smooth, proportionate contour.

To ensure the newly contoured and thinner thighs retain their shape, deep support sutures will be inserted within the underlying tissues of the treatment area. And to ensure the minimal appearance of scarring, Dr. Ali will take great care to make all incisions in areas that can be easily concealed by clothing, underwear, or bathing suits.

Thinner thigh patients will then be fit with dressings to cover their incisions. To reduce swelling, patients may also be required to wear a compression garment, but this will also help support the newly-created contours of the thighs. To remove excess blood or fluid from the treatment area, surgical drains may also be put in place.

For ideal thinner thigh results, it is imperative for patients to closely follow all aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Ali. Temporary swelling and discomfort may follow the procedure, but will be easily treated through prescribed pain medication. The comprehensive treatment plan put together by board-certified Detroit area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali will include information as to when the patient may resume normal activities.

4. ThermiSmooth + CelluliTx for Thigh Cellulite And Thinner Thighs

For Detroit area patients who desire fat loss, as well as smoother skin, in the thighs – but who do not wish to undergo surgery – we also offer non-invasive ThermiSmooth treatments at AMAE plastic surgery and med spa.

ThermiSmooth provides Detroit area patients with thinner thighs thanks to incredible radiofrequency (RF) fat loss and skin skin tightening technology. ThermiSmooth melts fat away from the treatment area through controlled, non-invasive heating methods, while simultaneously tightening the skin. In this way, ThermiSmooth patients not only get thinner thighs, but are also able to remove or reduce the appearance cellulite.

In addition to providing patients with thinner thighs through RF fat loss, ThermiSmooth also promotes the body’s natural production of collagen, which itself promotes the development of connective tissue. As a result, the skin of the treatment area will become thicker and stronger over time, and have improved elasticity, which will collectively work together to prevent the appearance of cellulite. ThermiSmooth patients not only get thinner thighs, they also receive smoother skin that is more toned and cellulite-free.

Our Detroit area patients typically obtain best results from this particular thinner thigh procedure after a series of four to six treatment sessions. With that in mind, many of our patients are able to achieve their own personal aesthetic goals after just two or three treatments.  For even more stunning results, patients can combine this procedure with the Marini CelluiTX Cellulite Cream, which can be used to help smooth out the appearance of remaining cellulite from the treatment area.

Through careful assessment of the patient’s body, lifestyle, and overall aesthetic goals, Dr. Ali will be able to recommend a procedure that meets the patient’s unique fat loss needs.

Everything To Know About Thigh Lift Surgery – Pt. 1

Everything to Know About Thigh Lift Surgery (Part 1)

Many people in the Detroit area turn to thigh lift surgery to get rid of stubborn deposits of fat that have accumulated in the thighs. Other reasons one might get thigh lift surgery is to treat lax, hanging skin, a disproportionate appearance of one’s thighs, or just overall poor thigh contour. And since diet and exercise are often hardly sufficient solutions to such problems, thigh lift surgery exists as an effective alternative.

In this article, we will discuss why countless Detroit area patients flock to AMAE Plastic Surgery to reap the benefits of thigh lift surgery.

What Is Thigh Lift Surgery

Thigh lift surgery (also called thighplasty) is a surgical procedure performed to improve the appearance of the thighs by treating sagging skin and removing unwanted deposits of fat. Thigh lift surgery can be performed on the outer thighs, the inner thighs, or even both.

Thigh Lift Surgery Procedure

Occasionally, liposuction will be performed as an additional, separate procedure with thigh lift surgery. This often occurs in cases where thigh lift surgery has proven insufficient in removing unwanted fat from the thigh area on its own, and will be performed several months after thigh lift surgery to improve results. This tends to occur in cases of patients who wish to remove significantly larger deposits of fat; a single thigh lift surgery procedure is usually all it takes for patients treating smaller amounts of fat.

To ensure the safety and comfort of our patients at the Detroit area’s AMAE Plastic Surgery, thigh lift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure wherein the patient is given general anesthesia.

The incision made during thigh lift surgery is made in the most discreet area of the thigh as possible, regardless of if the treatment area is the inner thigh, the outer thigh, or both. Outer thigh lift surgery and tummy tuck procedures are often combined, with a single incision made in the lower abdomen.

Inner thigh lift surgery, on the other hand, usually sees an incision made at the groin that extends downward, occasionally as far as the knee. The specifics of an individual procedure (such as the amount of excess skin being treated) will all factor into the size of each thigh lift surgery incision.

But regardless of the incision location or size, board certified Detroit area plastic surgeon will enter through the incision to tighten and/or remove sagging skin, smooth out and eliminate deposits of fat, and generally improve the contour of the thigh.

Thigh Lift Surgery Recovery

While thigh lift surgery is an extensive procedure, it is usually performed on an outpatient basis. While patients must arrange to be picked up from AMAE Plastic Surgery (ideally someone who can remain by their side for a few days while recovering, Detroit area individuals undergoing thigh lift surgery can return home the day of their procedure.

The relatively invasive nature of thigh lift surgery makes for something of an intense recovery period. Like all other plastic surgery procedures, thigh lift surgery can come along with a fair amount of swelling, though this varies from procedure to procedure. Fortunately, after about a month or so, most of the swelling from thigh lift surgery should subside. And while some minor swelling may persist for up to six months, Detroit area thigh lift surgery patients will usually see results far sooner than that.

Thigh lift surgery patients should expect to take off at least two or three weeks off from work, and will be required to wear a compression garment for several weeks while they recover. Detroit area patients are encouraged to go for gentle walks and engage in other light activities as soon as they feel up to it, but most thigh lift surgery patients are unable to engage in intense physical exercise for 4-6 weeks after treatment.

Scarring After Thigh Lift Surgery

Like all surgical procedures, thigh lift surgery results in some scarring. Since a body contouring procedure such as this involves the removal of excess skin, it would be impossible to walk away from thigh lift surgery without some scars. That said, at AMAE Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ali and his team of experts do everything they can to ensure their Detroit area patients experience as little scarring as is physically possible.

Whenever possible, Dr. Ali makes thigh lift surgery incisions in a discreet location. Additionally, thigh lift surgeries that are more limited with often only require a short incision near the groin. Such incisions only extend partially downwards along the thigh and can be easily covered with a shirt or shorts.

Most of our Detroit area thigh lift surgery patients agree that the results of their procedure far outweigh any negative thoughts they may have about their scars, with the general consensus being that thigh lift surgery scars can be easily concealed with clothing.

Everything To Know About Thigh Lift Surgery (Part 3)

Thigh lift surgery is a popular choice among Detroit area patients who wish to improve the overall contour of their thighs. Thigh lift surgery can be performed to remove unwanted deposits of fat, address sagging skin, or to address thighs that appear disproportionate to the rest of the body.

Whether the result of significant weight loss or simply the product of the aging process, lax, sagging skin is a major reason many Detroit area individuals opt for thigh lift surgery. Lax, sagging skin is marked by a loss of elasticity, and as a result lacks the ability to tighten and retract the way it is supposed to. This can obscure the body’s natural muscle tone and contours, with thigh lift surgery frequently being the only solution.

In this article, we will discuss how board-certified Detroit area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali has helped many individuals achieve their desired aesthetic goals through thigh lift surgery.

Good Thigh Lift Surgery Candidates

Thigh lift surgery is a safe and effective option for many Detroit area patients. But since everyone’s body is different, different procedures will best meet the needs of different people. To be an ideal thigh lift surgery candidate, patients should suffer from pour contour and large amounts of excess skin in the thigh area, despite being an otherwise healthy weight.

Thigh lift surgery is not an appropriate option for patients who wish to remove excess fat from the thigh areas, but are not affected by loose, excess skin. For Detroit area patients whom this describes, liposuction is considered more appropriate than thigh lift surgery.

Liposuction is significantly less invasive than a major, and relatively invasive procedure such as thigh lift surgery. That said, for Detroit area patients who wish to both remove unwanted fat and address loose, sagging skin, thigh lift surgery is a perfectly viable option. For while liposuction is a somewhat invasive procedure, not only does it lack the ability to tighten skin, liposuction patients are in fact left with even more loose skin than they began with, something with which thigh lift surgery patients need not concern themselves.

Alternatives to Thigh Lift Surgery

Procedures such as non-invasive CoolSculpting and minimally-invasive liposuction may very well be enough to meet the aesthetic goals of those primarily concerned with removing stubborn fat from the thigh area. Thigh lift surgery is performed specifically to not only meet such goals, but to also address poor contour of the thighs and significantly sagging skin.

During the consultation stage, board certified Detroit area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali will meticulously lay out all treatment options available to his patients. He will help determine if thigh lift surgery is the right choice, or if the patient’s goals could be reached through a less invasive procedure.

Combining Thigh Lift Surgery with Other Procedures

Patients in the Detroit area who come to us for thigh lift surgery are often plagued by loose, sagging skin not only in the thigh area, but in other parts of the body as well. Thigh lift surgery is frequently performed in conjunction with other body contouring procedures, treating loose skin not only in the thighs, but also the buttocks, arms, or stomach.

For some patients, a thigh lift can be performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck, liposuction, or even a butt lift – to address multiple appearance concerns in only a single surgery session.

In fact, uch a combination of procedures is very common at AMAE Plastic Surgery. Provided Dr. Ali determines doing so is a safe option for the patient, multiple cosmetic procedures can often easily be incorporated into one’s treatment plan.
