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.
