IS THIGH LIFT THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR ME?
A thigh lift could be an option for you if:
- You have excess skin in your upper leg / thigh area that is causing you grief and you would like to remove.
- You have areas of fat and tissue that do not respond to exercise or diet
- You are in good health and you do not smoke
- You will maintain a healthy lifestyle after your procedure
- You have realistic expectations about the outcome of the surgery
WHAT CAN I EXPECT OVER THE LONG TERM AFTER THIGH LIFT SURGERY?
Thigh lift results should be long-lasting provided you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle after your surgery.
ARE THERE ANY ALTERNATIVES TO THIGH LIFT SURGERY?
Not really. Liposuction can be used to minimise fat; however it will not improve the skin laxity in the thighs and potentially could make the skin laxity worse.
CAN I COMBINE AN THIGH LIFT WITH OTHER COSMETIC SURGERY PROCEDURES?
Thigh lifts are generally undertaken to reverse the effects of weight loss and age. This means it is often paired with procedures that combat the same effects. Thigh lifts can, in some cases, be paired with breast reductions or arm lifts (brachioplasty. It is also important to remember that not all procedures can be performed at the same time. Dr Safvat will determine whether it’s viable to perform all the procedures you have in mind at the same time.
