Thigh lift or “thighplasty” is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin from the inner thigh. It is a procedure that commonly is performed in patients who have lost a large amount of weight and have loose sagging skin on the inner thighs.
The procedure can tighten the loose skin on the inner thigh but involves a scar that can run down the entire length of the thigh when an extensive amount of skin is removed. Thigh lift typically is done under general anesthesia.
-Follow all the recommendations given by the doctor about which medications to stop and what your feeding should be before the surgery.
-In most cases, patients may experience pain in the thighs for the first 24 to 48 hours, and compressive wraps are placed on the thighs.
-Take pain medications as recommended by your doctor.
-Soreness and swelling are likely for a few weeks after surgery. Bruising is possible, too.
