Sagging thighs or buttocks are often a result of aging or excessive weight loss. This procedure lifts the thighs and buttocks by removing a segment of skin. The remaining scar lies across the lower abdomen and just above the buttocks on the back. The major benefits to our patients are tighter buttocks, diminishing or completely removing thigh cellulite and removal of back rolls or excess back skin after losing excessive weight. A simple way to test for the result of such a procedure is to pinch the skin just above the hips on both sides while looking in the mirror.
Excess tissue is removed from two oval shaped incisions made at the top of the thigh or buttock and the skin is lifted and held to give the desired effect of firm thighs and buttocks. This can often be combined with liposuction for further body sculpting however this will increase the amount of time in surgery.
Procedure Time: 1.5-2 hours
No of Procedures Needed: 1
Recovery Time: 6-8 weeks
For the first couple of days after your thigh and/or buttock lift surgery you will experience some discomfort in the lifted area but this will subside after a few days and the tightness you feel will become normal. Bruising and swelling usually lasts a couple of weeks but this depends on the patient. Being fit and healthy in the lead up to your thigh and/or buttock lift procedure will benefit your recovery. You may also need to wear compression bandages to help reduce swelling and aid in the tightening of the skin. Due to the strategic placement of the incisions, swimwear can be worn without revealing the scars. Heavy lifting and strenuous exercise should be avoided for the first 6-8 weeks.
